These will never go out of style. and they are almost indestructible. These especially good for deadstcking while you are jigging nearby with a different rod.
Great rig for pan fishing in the shallows

Bought this rod originally for a cheap spare. I use it more than my other rods and you cannot beat the price for the end product. A complete fishing rig for pan fishing in the shallows (5-10').
Worth the Money
by John S -
I recently bought the 26in and couldn't be happier. Works great on everything from small perch and bluegill to good size crappie. For the money, you can't go wrong. I am going to be ordering a couple more.
Great product (and service)!

Does exactly what it should in an economic and reliable way. I have two of these in my kit and typically dead stick with them. Wouldn't be without them.
This is my first season ice fishing (stocked trout in a small lake), so I got the simplest gear possible. The Schooley is easy to use, easy to maintain and super effective. The spring bobber is super-sensitive and doesn't ice up and sink like a traditional bobber. I've caught scads of trout and bluegill with this rod, and I can't wait to try it from a dock or canoe. Well worth the 8 bucks.

Great pole at a great price

I bought the 21" version for my first ice fishing trip. Caught 15 fish in about 2 hours - 8 bluegills, 5 largemouth bass, 1 pumpkinseed, and a 14" white crappie! This combo is awesome, for just under $8 you get everything you need to catch fish through the ice once a hole has been made. I just added bait onto the jig. The spring bobber makes it very easy to detect fish biting. The line that comes pre-spooled is Vicious Fishing Hi-vis 2 lb line (I called Schooley's to ask) and worked very well - no coils coming off the reel, easy to see on the ice, and it didn't break. Overall, I would highly recommend this product - easy to use, catches fish, and affordable.
Great for my needs
Since I can oly go ice fishing once or twice every few winters due to our weather this pole works great as it doesn't break the bank and works great for the bluegill I catch. The only thing I would change is that with gloves the handle on the reel is kinda hard to manipulate. Super easy to use and catches pan fish with ease.

Cool Little Pole
by farmer_aa -
I bought this rod to fish lightweight jigs on light line. It's a pretty slick little rig and you can't beat the price. It comes spooled with line (it looks to be 6 lb test or so and was too heavy for my application, though the yellow line is pleasantly very visible on the ice) and a little ice jig as well. The only thing lacking would be a tiny loop built in to hook the miniscule ice hooks for transport. Other than that I couldn't be happier. By the way, the shipping was absurdly fast. Got my order just a couple days after placing it.
Love my Schoolies

I went ice fishing with a friend of mine, and he showed me his Schoolies! These are the best pan fish ice rod for the money I've ever used. Period!
Nice Poles-especially for kids
by Fish On -
This is a great pole for kids and adults. During a light bite the spring bobber is excellent for detecting those fussy fish which makes it easier and more successful for the kids to catch fish and have fun doing so. It's also tough enough to handle anything the kids can dish out and it's very easy for them to use.

I have always enjoyed ice-fishing, but I never made an investment in a lot of gear because I live at the southern fringe of dependable ice-fishing. But the last two years we've had good ice, for at least a few weeks and I decided to take advantage of the opportunity. I bought Schooley's spring-bobber rods because they were inexpensive and appeared simple to use, for someone who was not skilled at ice fishing. My guess proved right. These rods are easy for anyone to use, but they are all you need to catch sunfish, crappie and perch. I don't feel the need to get anything more sophisticated. Sometimes, simplicity is the best approach. Thanks for a good product.
every thing is right about this rod

I use the schooley to catch bluegill crappie largemouth and even pike with no problem.This pole is a 10.Only one negetive is if you catch a large fish and forget to pull the depth pin,you could break your line
by TomE -
Great for icefishing for perch and small fish. Sensitive.
I never tried one of these babies for Ice Fishing until this season and I will never use anything else. It puts fish on the ice, even the lightest biters are caught. One fine product, my sons all have them now too!
I will buy this product over and over!

I fish in a canal and fish the top 4 feet. I constantly jig up and down that 4 feet. Without the spring bobber action it would be hard to fool the big gills. Awesome ice rods.
Schooleys Spring Bobber Pole
by gotfish -
Dependable, economical and simple reel for ice fishing in shallow waters.
I will buy this product again .
by Stroopies -
First time ice fishing by myself caught 39 1/2 inch Tiger Musky. Small ice jig tipped with minnow. Proved durability to me.
Good functional combo
Good basic rig for shallow to medium depth(up to about 20') panfish rig. Trouble free and durable. I've used the 26" combo for years, and just bought a couple of the 40" rigs for hole hopping outside the shack. I use spinning rigs from time to time, but keep coming back to the Schooleys for the durability and ease of use. The only downside, which is minor for me, is they don't have quite the action of a higher dollar rod,but the simplicity and lack of problems more than make up for it. The one thing I would like to change is to have a wooden handle instead of the plastic, even if it cost a little more.
Perfect pole for pan fishing

Works excellent for bluegills and perch through the ice in Michigan.
great for tip downs+jigging.
So far in the last 2 years I have bought over 30 of these for tip down fishing. Every one I give/sell these too love them. Very nice for the money, I keeo finding more uses for these rods. 26" best for homemade tip downs. Will not be disapointed.
Good for ice fishing

Can"t beat them for the money spent. Brought home 37 large pan fish using them the other day. A fish did pull one through the hole in the ice last week.
