I am upgrading my equipment for catfishing and even after hours of reading info on the internet I cannot find an appropriate rod for my needs. I need a rod suitable or even capable of casting 10 to 30 OUNCES of sinker/bait from shore. Even Heavy action Catfish rods and Surf rods are only rated to a max of about 10 ounces. So what rods out there are best for throwing a 4 ounce sinker plus a 16 ounce bait (20 ounces)? OR even a 3 ounce sinker with 8 ounce bait (11 ounces)? I realize that casting such a heavy rig is asking a lot from a rod, but I know that there are lots of us out there who do it. I think that many catfishermen are making do with rods rated to 2 or 4 ounces, that only covers my sinker.
