Hey, great idea. Just put a Rhino closed-face reel with built in clicker on a stout ice rod, anchor it well in a good rod holder, and set the drag loose. If a fish runs with your line, hold your line and set the hook, or just zip the drag tight and set the hook. I've done something like that with catfish in the summer.Trout said:Has anyone used a baitcaster ice rod with a reel and a clicker. I would think a really light drag would do the same thing as long as you can hear it. A huge pike on a ice rod would be cool.
