I am going to try and not puirchase a catfish rod and/or reel for the rest of this winter and the entire 2008 season. This is going to be tuff, but man I've got too much stuff. You can't walk in my garage and not step on an Abu reel or a cat rod. To all my catfishing friends..... HELP ME!!!!! If I show up with a new reel knock me upside my head!
