I just got a new Ambassador 6500 reel, but I need to get a rod for it. This outfit will be used for catfishing and musky fishing. I like the St. Croix rods a lot and there are also some good Shimano rods for a little less money. I will need a medium heavy action rod that is between 7 foot and 8 foot long. Do you have any suggestions on good rods that could be used for both types of fishing?
