What kind of fishing pole is this?
« on: Jan 09, 2024, 08:40 AM »
I got this old metal fishing pole from my brother's estate. It is spooled with wire line. I can't read the manufacturer's name. Is it an ice fishing setup for pike? Or maybe an old rig for lake trout?

Here are photos of a few more like it.

The wire line is interesting because this style, at least nowadays, are generally for ice fishing for panfish with a very sensitive spring bobber on the end.

This rod is 4' long and stiff as can be because it's made of steel. I suspect it would be used for ice fishing for toothy critters.

Or back when you could fish for Sturgeon.
To make small fortune in business, start with a large one.

I would attach it to my truck.  If I ever got stuck I would winch myself out.
My fish are all the same size - bite size
