favorite jig rod

Recommended Posts

With what kind of jig? For punching matts and lily pads, or for stream Smallmouths? For 1/8th ounce hair jigs in Winter, or for 3/4 ounce football heads? There's lots of different kinds of jigs.

DX744C as of yesterday. I can easily cast 1/4-3/4 jigs a mile and is plenty sensititve and lightweight and perfectly balanced.

For where I fish, Dobyns 765. Super light, super well balanced, and extremely sensitive. For lakes and such, I'd go with the Dobyns Extreme 744.

I use 5 or 6 different ones depending on the jig.

I'm actually in the process of building my fave right now. I thought of all of the good charicteristics of the rods that I've used on Lakes Norfork and Bull Shoals over the years and rolled them into one.

This is a 7' Forecast MB843 MH Fast that will sport a Revo S. It's spiral wrapped with Alps BUDUG guides in 12 for the stripper, an 8 and then 6's to the tip.
