Avid ice angler Jesse Tintes provides some helpful insight on what to consider when choosing an ice rod and reel for walleye. There are several on-ice applications that require different rod types, actions and lengths but Jesse explains what to look for in a good all-around walleye ice fishing rod and reel. Questions to ask yourself are. Do you fish outside or in a house? Do you sit, stand or kneel? Do you actively fish spoons and jigs? Do you mainly use a set line such as bobbers or dead sticking? Consider this guidance before making a purchase.
