We present experimental and theoretical results showing efficient emergence of rogue wavelike extreme intensity spikes during the fiber-based induced-modulational instability process driven by a partially incoherent pump. In particular, we show that the rogue event probability can be easily controlled by adjusting the pump-signal detuning.
