Big Sticks For Heavy Fish

Professional angler Jeff “Gussy” Gustafson designed a heavy-duty ice rod to subdue the oversize gamefish that swim the Canadian waters he fishes.

Fish grow large in the lightly pressured waters above the Canadian border. Too large to be easily tamed with the class of gear most anglers use across the U.S. Ice Belt.

Thus, Frabill’s Ice Hunter Series Jeff Gustafson Heavy-Duty Combo was born. Gussy designed the 38-inch blank with a soft tip and muscular backbone to handle the big, aggressive lakers, pike and walleyes in his home waters—and for the benefit of any angler who targets trophy-class fish through the ice.
