    I'm looking for advise on a baitcaster under $50 to use for fishing in the river with current that can handle some good sized cats Thanks

    Definately NOT the Shakespear scp2000, I had it shackled down on the drag and spool brake know and the clicker on and it couldnt hold the line in place, and I had on 3 oz. no roll river sinkers!

    However, I bought a TCG6000 ABU Garcia Tournament from my local bait shop for $50, and it held line fine, and the thing casts, and reels like a dream, very smooth, and casts a country mile with very little weight on it (2 oz).
