I've got a 7' MH extra fast taper shimano compre. Is the rod too light for sumo sized cats?
Just go with what Sammy has to offer.Haved used all sorts of rod/reel combos over the years for Cats.Good choice would be a 7' MH or H with my fav reel an abu6500.You'll love the clicker feature once it goes off for the first time.Powerpro fanatic with the 50# being my usual line of choice.I actually will use the good old 8 1/2' Rhino rod with a baitcaster on a fair number of outings not just for cats.You're in good hands with Sam.If i was in town this weekend i might have invited myself to join you :lol:Might be an idea to hit the Superstore for a box or 2 of the Thai Gold Head on shrimp.Killer bait and i'm sure Sam would appreciate you bringing some.LDB Bass Hunter said:Sounds like I'll be going kitty chasing for the first time on sunday. We will be in a boat. Waiting for Andy to chime in with his rod opinion. I've also goat a round flueger baitcaster with 30 lb powerpro...........
