Black Ice Makes Fish Anxious
Park Falls, WI - The words "black ice" spurs anxiety in the mind of the late season winter angler, questioning the quality of the degenerating, porous surface. On winter's front end, black ice is the fast-forming, crisp foundation that coats the shallows and appears black from afar - the building blocks of a long ice fishing season.
New for ice fishing 2017-18, St. Croix's Legend Black ice rods mean you're equipped with the finest, most-sensitive ice fishing tools of all time.
"Sensitive? Ever felt a mosquito land on your index finger? Yeah, that's what the super-finesse strike indicator does. Detects every lure disturbance-a subtle bluegill nudge, crappie breathe-bite, perch nipping nothing but the tail of your larvae. The indicator's solid black silhouette stands out like a beacon and doesn't lie-ever."
With ten models in the series, and available in lengths from 17- to 48-inches, Legend Black ice rods are paired with the patented fully-adjustable, interchangeable, stainless-steel finesse strike-indicator system for targeting a variety of species with just about any offering. Just slide the spring forward or back to adjust the tension so that it's at a 30-degree angle off the tip, and you'll see every bite, even when fish rise to bite from below - the cryptic "up bite," which is virtually undetectable without a strike-indicator.
Handcrafted in Park Falls, Wisconsin, Legend Black Ice is completed with a 1-year St. Croix Superstar Service warranty, and retails for $75 to $80.
Allowing ice anglers to see the subtlest strikes well before they're felt? That's Legend Black.
