What Length Is Your Jig Rod?

Recommended Posts

Well I am tall so I prefer a 7' to 7'2". Only time I opt for a shorter rod is when I am in close to docks flipping under them then I go for something in the 6'6" to 6'8" range.

Standard lengths are fine (6 1/2' - 7'), but a lot of guys prefer longer rods.

Mine are 6'9", 7', 7'1" and 7'6"

7'6" is another one in my aresonal. I mainly use it for fishing in the thick stuff.

Mine is 7 ft 3 but also use a 7ft I fish mostly open water stuff. My punch rod /arig rod is  7 ft 9.   I am taller so i can get away with pitching a  7 ft 3 rod. If I was shorter I would use a 7ft rod.   The punch / arig rod is so long to cast big baits far, no other reason.

All mine are 7'4. Better leverage and you pick line up quicker.

Between 7 and 7'4. My favorite is a DX 745. I throw jigs on several rods depending on water depth or how close I am.

Let's see ~ there's the 6'6" model, the 6'10" stick, the 7' wand and the 7'4" industrial crane.

 

That about covers it.

 

I guess I like jig fishing a little.

I'll fish a jig on any rod that I think is sensitive enough for the purpose, and has enough backbone to set a thick single hook.  Length is determined by where I'm fishing and what I'm fishing around. As far as a "primary" jig rod goes, I'd have to say mine is 7'5".

6'6" to 6'8", because 6'8" is the longest one that will fit in my car...lol.

6'9" will work fine. As your budget allows you can try new things and see what works for YOU. There is right or wrong for the most part (within reason of course).

I asked because I was offered a 6'9 MH Zillion for 140 in the flea market.

I was wondering if you were going to jump on that. I would. It is a great rod an for 140 I dont think you are going to beat it.

Mine range from 6'8" to 7'11". It al depends on what type of jig fishing I;m doing.  7' is a good all around start.

This may be a dumb question but...what is the point of buying another jigging rod that is only 1inch longer than another you already have? I mean is there a reason behind that 1 inch increase? Aside from just having another rod for a different bait style/color or line type/size?

1 X 6'6", 3 X 7', 2 X 7'2", 1 X 7'6", 1 X 7'11".  these cover rods for both jigs and t-rigs.
