    BGcat and I both use:
    7' - 7'6" E-glass one piece poles heavey action
    80# Power pro braided line
    4 to 5 ounce no-roll sinkers
    Abu Gracia 7000 bait casters
    Carolina rig on the bottom
    8/0 - 10/0 Gamagutus Octopus hooks
    80 - 100 lb test Berkley McMahon swivels
    and the most import thing is a nice livey piece of bait yellow belly, blue gill, carp, goldfish etc.

    good luck brother, hope ya catch the BIG one.
