    Many of the advertised shows turns out to be a costly joke. You can learn more by going to Bass Pro or Cabelas.

    I recommended Walmart fishing aisle... I think it has more to offer and better priced. Though I did see some of Team Catfish products there for sale... so if you want one of those rods, save yourself some shipping and handling. Other than that... don't bother.

    I'm going to order some Team Catish rods in the near future. I haven't decided on the 1/2 or 3/4 ton. Need about four. Maybe two of each. I would like to get around that shipping charge also.

    I want one of those half ton ones Mickey. The 3/4 and 1 ton is for bringing in whales in my opinion. The half ton is a beaut. Someday I hope to get one.
