    A Abu 6000 or 6500C3, Ugly Stick Catfish Rod , 20 lb Test Line, and Shad or Livers for bait.

    The best bait you can use is any bait fish that is native to the water your fishing in...

    my favorite and most successful bait is a livecut shadhead hooked through the eyes. you want fresh blood to come outta the cut. its like catfish candy.
