I just found this great side and really enjoy all the posts. I haven't done any fising in about 8 years. I recently moved about two miles away from the river that is full of channel cats. ( per the local community bar expert) I would like to get a couple spinning reel\ rod combos. I was looking at the cabelas combos and it is quite over whelming. I really don't know how stiff of a rod to get ( as a man I hated to make that last statemnet on a public forum). So what is a good combo in the $ 80 or $90 price range. I also read alot about the cajun red line. Is a good way to go? I would guess in the #20 range.
