    Guys, what do you use and recommend for short ice rods for walleye in a shanty?
     
  2. Jim for in a shanty you will need a shorter rod so you can jig you lure and not hit the front of the shelter. I would think a 24 or 26 medium action would be good, but try different lengths inside your shelter befor you buy. As for brands I have a genzs model lightning rod which is great, I also have a st. croix combo from gander that is good but the real is only ok, a little small for my liking, and a first ice that is also very good. Too be honest if you use a super braid most rods will be sensitive enough, but I prefer a solid graphite rod.

    ....thanks for your input, with all the Lake Erie ice fishing you do; your thoughts are always well worth considering. ;)

    Maybe we can get up there this winter for a trip and you can "show me the ropes"? ;)
