At my local lake (Fishtrap Lake) I use a slip float setup for cats (channels and flatheads). I am going to get me another rig. I have found a Quantum Open Face reel, but I am trying to decide on what rod I am going to match with it. I am choosing between a 7'6" Medium Heavy or a 7" Medium Heavy Ugly Stick Catfish Rod. What would be my best choice, because I am using a 9" float and going to be using bluegill, big chubs, etc.?
