    Default Looking for opinions on Jigging rods....


    Let me preface this by saying I've already got a pair of 8' two piece BPS Crappie Maxx Pro Series Rods that I use to jig off my kayak & I love fishing with them. I'm looking for something longer (10' or 11') that's also a little more sensitive. Due to a cold front last week, I was forced to drop down to 1/32 & 1/24 oz jigheads to get the crappie at 12'-14' to cooperate and the jigging rods I have just lacked a little feel and sensitivity. These rods will be mostly used in open water with the potential of running into catfish, stripers, and bass, so they also need some power & durability. Trying not to break the bank, but I know you get what you pay for too. All voices of experience and suggestions are appreciated. Thanks!

    Sam Heaton Super Sensitive rods. A lot of good rods out there - and a lot of people will chime in - but, these rods are always in my boat. Sensitive, but have the backbone to handle a catfish or hybrid.

    I have all kinds of jig poles and they all get used at different times but the one I really like for situations like you are describing is the Jenco Hypersense rear seat rod in 11 ft. It is very light, balances very well with a lite reel, pretty sensitive especially with braid and has a lot of backbone considering the weight of the rod. Never fished out of a kayak but would think a rear seat might be an advantage with the limited room.

    I use the Sam Heaton rods from B/M . B/M will tell you quick that they do not recommend you boat flip fish with any rod they make . I would recommend that you try as many rods as possible before buying . To me "all " 12 ft. rods feel better than shorter rods for straight jigging . Most will not stray from what they started out with . I have owned Huckabee, ACC, B/M brush butter series and am just not a fan . All are good rods if you like a stiff action rod . Best is in the eyes of anglers . I personally know of no tournament guys that do not carry a net . lol

    I have a couple of the BnM BGJP's. I like them for the price mine are 12 footers. They are sensitive and won't break the bank. I haven't broken any and have hooked into some white bass. I usually try not to flip, but you know how that goes.

    I have 3 Bucks BnM 2 piece jig poles. One is an 11' and the other 2 are 12'. I keep all three rigged up in my boat at all times......one with a cork & crappie hook for minnows (if I decide to go that way) and the others with 1/16 oz jig heads ready for some variety of grub to be put on. I have had great luck with these three jig poles. Probably caught 10,000 fish or more on each one. Luckily, so far no breaks.

    I currently use BnM 12' BGJP and BnM 11' SHSS for vertical jigging. Have been looking at some 14' models but have not pulled the trigger yet.

    Look at Falcon jig poles. Nobody talks about them, but they should.

    Look at Southern Crappie Rods. Durable and easy on the wallet. Not to mention that Ed is a great guy to do business with.
