Had a cancellation today so I unboxed 8 new catfish rod and reels and spooled them up with 65 LB Big Game Braid. These are Ambassadeur 6500 TC reels on 8 foot ugly stick catfish rods. They are 4 bearing reels with a really nice power handle. They will get a good workout this winter.
I am getting everything ready to go to the coast. Here is a pic of a few lures I rigged up today. They look small in the pic but the second lure from the bottom is a Manns stretch 40 and it is 14 inches long.
I am going to start striper fishing this weekend and spring break is next week. I have some time open this weekend and next week. New boat will be ready to fish this weekend.
