One bright side to a COLD winter is good thick fishable ice !!! The St Croix line up of jigging Rods makes feeling the soft bites and fighting larger fish much easier!!! The technique is pretty simple, drop your jig all the way to the bottom lift it up about a foot off the bottom and shake it around in that one foot zone to the bottom. Dont move it to far try to shake the jig in place then let it sit for a bit and repeat. I like tip my jigs with mouses to give them that little extra that panfish cant resist!!! Theres good times to be had on the hard water in northern NJ !!! #BestRodsOn Earth,#MojoJigRods,#StCroixRods

Renegade Outdoor Innovations custom colors for both hard baits and yes, Soft Plastics!!!

Fun crappie fishing. Releasing big ones and keeping some eaters. Small castmasters tipped with waxies. #acmetackle #stcroixrods #vexilar Warm inside the #Clam six pack #MercuryProTeam

Thank You to the 60 + anglers that came to my Seminar @ MW Marine today. It was great to see that when I asked who owns a St Croix Rod in the crowd close to 75% of you raised your hand. It was my pleasure to share and show how I rig St Croix Legend Tournament Series for jigging, drop shoting and wacky rigging. Good luck fishing and keep on using the Best Rods Rods on Earth, #StCroixRods

The St. Croix Legend Ice Rods dominated the bluegills today! Two of us used St. Croix Legend Ice Rods, and two did not. 95% of our fish, and ALL of the eaters were caught by the best and most sensitive finesse springs on the market! #StCroixRods #BestRodsOnEarth

It was a tougher prefishing bite but we still managed a few nice panners. #StCroixRods #BestRodsOnEarth #BlueTipz #DeepFreeze

Crappies has lockjaw yesterday on the ice, but we managed a good bunch of bluegills and a couple perch. Clients also cooked up brats.... Beer Brats and Bluegills! #BestRodsOnEarth

Strength and sensitivity from this St Croix Avid ML28 jigging stick helped ice this eye.#StCroixRod

Perch bite remains strong. Avid panfish rods are awesome for light biting perch. Watch every nibble happen before your eyes. #clamoutdoors #jiffyonice #acmetackle #MercuryProTeam

Great day on the ice today pre-snow storm. Used my custom crappie tip-ups with the St. Croix Avid Ice Rods (AIR30ML) #StCroixRods
