Wire Line Jigging Stick

Rate this topic

3 posts in this topic

I'm looking to build a rod that will be used almost exclusively for wire line jigging the sandy bottom around Cape Cod. What is recommended? What about guides, etc?

 

Thanks.

Lami BT857S, nice slow action needed for jigging wire and parachutes. 16 tip. Leave at 7ft or trim to 6 1/2 from the butt....if you trim too much from the tip it becomes a umbrella rig stick upck.gif

 

braced carbide guides or fuji silicone nitrate II guides. Problem with braced carbide is the welds on the rings/frame break. depending on length 4-5 guides plus tip. tip aftco roller or fuji SIC boat top. The snII do not come in 16....

Hey Dude , Check out Seekers line of 30lb blanks

they are really good rods, but you will have to take some off the tip. I made two of them identical of each other. For guides I used Mildrum Carboly , these are the same guides that Seeker uses on thier wire line series of rods.

With these guides you will not have to worry about the rings popping out when the swivel goes thru the guides. On my wire line reels I use 50lb stainless. Goodluck.

Bill.
