I got invited to do some night crappie fishing with my brother. when we went out on his boat. We threw out our lines for crappie and got settled. then he throws out a couple of bigger poles for catfish. He brought in the first then let me bring in the second. #12 channel cat. I WAS HOOKED:smile2:. I know what i got won't bring in the bigguns. so i ask you the experenced ones. what kind of rod ,reel, line, leader and hook should i get? I have to fish on a bank since i ain't got no boat. i'll be fishing the wabash if it helps.
