St.Croix Legend Ice Fishing Rods – Sensitivity Is The Name Of The Game

st.croix legend ice fishing rodsIt’s that time of the year again, Winter… And when winter creeps upon our doorstep so does the ice on the lakes. Ice fishermen from all over get the urge to get out and do some ice fishing. You will want to make sure you have a sturdy, sensitive, quality rod like the St.Croix Legend ice fishing rods.

These fishing rods will help you catch your limit. Legend ice fishing rods have excellent sensitivity because of the black anodized spring coiled strike indicator system. This provides above par bobber versatility and performance of these ice fishing rods. You will see that a fish is on the end of your line before you even feel it! That’s the kind of ice fishing rod every angler dreams about having.

The spring coil system is fully adjustable and also interchangeable which is useful in the customization of the rods. When you get the rod customized to suit you just right; don’t be surprised if you catch your limit time and time again. You’ll be hooking the fish before the fish even knows what hit’em!

St.Croix Legends Ice Fishing Rods Series

There are 3 lineups in the legend ice fishing rod series that we will be discussing throughout this article. The legend gold came out for ice fishing season 2013/2014. The Silver edition came out that same season and the Black edition came out in 2017/2018 season.

All 3 of these editions have the coil spring bobber system  (sold separately) which makes them so sensitive. Most ice anglers opt for the ultralight and or light versions when fishing for fussy biting and up feeding fish because of the high sensitivity built right into these rods.

The whole legend series is built on a graphite blank. This is as solid as it gets in an ice fishing rod. The St.Croix Legend ice fishing rods are very strong rods that will take the abuse and you can keep on fishing!

Gold Series

St. Croix Legend Super Finesse Spring Bobber

This series is made of 24k gold plate. The gold color helps if you are fishing on a cloudy day or if you’re night fishing with a bad light source. This series also has a Fuji SK2 reel seat.

The handle is made of neoprene-skin. Neoprene is a synthetic rubber that can maintain its flexibility over a wide temperature range. This makes it ideal for ice fishing.

The gold series comes in only one length which is 24″. That is what the length is for the original St.Croix Legend ice fishing rods.

Silver Series

The silver series comes in an original stainless-steel finish. They have a cork trim around a secure lock reel seat. The silver series legend rods come in 10 tension supports and 4 different lengths…

  • 17” Model – comes only in Light tension support
  • 24″ Model – comes in Ultra Light, Light, Medium Light, Medium and Medium Heavy
  • 30″ Model – comes in Light, Medium Light, and Medium
  • 48″ Model – only comes in MediumSt. Croix Legend Black Ice Fishing Rods

Black Series

The black series legend rod is the top of the top in the Legend series of ice fishing rods. This series is one of the best freshwater ice fishing rods on the market. Black features a stainless-steel strike indicator. It’s super-finesse and high-tension so you know when those fish are biting.

It has the adjustability with the interchangeable spring indicator system. That is what makes this rod more sensitive than others on the market. This lets ice anglers notice the smallest nibbles and catch that fish before you even feel it.

The fully adjustable and interchangeable spring indicator system is much more sensitive than any other type of indicator, allowing ice anglers to see the most subtle bump or strike before it can be felt. The St.Croix Legend Black ice fishing rods come in many models with different lengths and tension supports.

  • 17” Model – comes only in Light tension support
  • 24″ Model – comes in Ultra Light, Light, Medium Light, Medium and Medium Heavy
  • 30″ Model – comes in Light, Medium Light, and Medium
  • 48″ Model – only comes in Medium

At The End Of The Day

The St.Croix Legend ice fishing rods are a perfect choice if you are looking for durability and sensitivity while fishing for those low biting fish. These Legend rods can withstand the torture of ice fishing like if it falls on the hard ice or bending almost in half. These rods will bounce right back because of their graphite blank that their made of their sensitivity derives from the unique spring coiled strike indicator system that they are all equipped with.

Most anglers get the lighter versions of the rods. The length of the rod is a personal preference. I would recommend this rod series to those fishermen and women who love to go pan, crappie and perch fishing. And also to those anglers who love to catch their limits day in and day out. Now, that’s good eating!

    Hi Cory,

    I have never been ice fishing so I don’t know much about the topic. However, I can see that this is a very high quality rod and I would definitely put it as the first rod I would buy if I were to go ice fishing. I wonder if you would mind telling me what is the most important feature to look for when buying an ice fishing rod? Thanks for sharing 🙂

    Hello there. Fellow professional fisherman here. I agree that the St.Croix series of fishing rods are an investment worth making. They are really everything a person could want for an ice fishing rod. I have caught Pike, Muskellunge, Yellow Perch, Crappie, Largemouth Bass and even Channel Catfish all on the same rod. It is a small rod with a huge reputation. It just doesn’t WEAR OUT! In my own honest opinion, I believe that the rod is one of the best ice fishing rods on the market. My favorite is the gold version. It is very pretty and very strong. I personally use the gold version of this rod. If I had to ask one question about it though, it would be this. Why don’t more rod manufactures live to the the reputation of St. Croix and all start with a graphite blank if it certainly is the better option for ice fishing?

    • Cory Haasnoot says:

      They are trying to save money that way but it makes for an inferior rod thus you get what you pay for! Graphite is the way to go if your a serious angler.

    “And when winter creeps upon our door steps so does the ice on the lakes” great intro for a nice write up. You just made ice fishing sound so interesting and adventurous; I have to give it a try. St.Croix Legend ice fishing rods seem to be the number one tools necessary for a successful ice fishing adventure, i hope to get one too.

    Hi Cory,
    Great detailed explanation of the St.Croix Legends Ice Fishing Rods.
    Shows just how resilient these rods are. They can take all the work you are prepared to give them. Plus catch fish.
    As can be seen by the description of these three models, they give the angler a wide choice. The Black Series seems to cover all the bases as it should, being their top,of the range rod.
    They are all built to withstand the rigors of ice fishing. They support different tensions,: Light, Medium, Medium-Heavy, Medium-Light. Whatever your taste
    Although the price range is on higher side, it certainly is worth the investment.
    If you are into ice fishing these St Croix Legends Ice fishing Rods are a must in considering an addition to or replacement for your ice fishing rods.

  • David Moore says:

    I certainly agree with that comment! Graphite rods are just downright better than other options. They are more sensitive, more durable, and they often perform better on big fish! I would personally love to pay a little more than for a better rod than settle for some cheap old nonsense. What you pay for will be worth it in fish and longevity!
