    Does anyone make a good combo for catfishing, or will I have to piece something together? I'd prefer a spinning setup if possible...

    Cabelas King kat spinning combos seem to be fair for the price. I'm sure there are some decent fair priced ones out there.

    Jay you might want to take a look at the Hawg Seeker from Zebco it's reasonable priced and it should do you right.

    I've seen some Ugly Stik combo's at Academy which may work. All depends on what you want to spend...

    You can get a Abu 6000 Combo at your local Wal-Mart.

    ya mostly would be based on you budget. there a few online sites that sell good combos. okumas and what not. as far as spinning goes i have a quantum xr-60. big holds lots of line. they are $20ish at walmart. i have pulled up 20' limbs with it with braided line. and teamed with a bug game or tiger rod fairly cheap. i have since switched to abu baitcasters but still have this one.

    shotgun shell is for refference. its a big reel and holds miles of line.

    I would have to recommend the Okuma Fin Chaser combo, under $40 or the Okuma Avenger ABF-65 combo for around $80. Both are good combos that I use a lot. The Fin Chaser is a better Channel Cat set up while the Avenger makes a better flathead set-up (has the bait clicker feature).
