The Best Ice Fishing Rod depends on how you fish and what you are fishing for. If you do your fishing in a hut or shanty then you want a shorter rod since space is limited. If you sit out on the ice then you can fish a longer rod though 36 inches seems to be a good length.
The best ice fishing rod is based on what species of fish you plan to catch. Choose ultra-light rods for panfish. Light ice fishing rods are good for perch, and light to medium rods are good for walleye, whitefish and most trout. Heavy rods are best for pike or lake trout.
