For cats in the 10-20 lbs range, what's better Med. or MedHvy rods ?
I use Med. Heavy for all size catfish, but thats because I use 1 oz weights, I use a Med rod for bass fishing.
I would never use anything less than a M/H rod for 10 to 20lb catfish.
I agree med/heavy is the only thing to use for cats.
depending on your knowledge of the area that you plan on fishing for 10-20 pound fish you're never gonna know what monster of a fish is going to bite. its better to be prepared than to not, so i would say, no matter what, take that medium-heavy rod, even for a 10-20 pound fish.
welcome to the BOC danny
mike i use ugly sticks med. heavy for all my cats , they have the back bone to handle the bigguns just in case i need it and a nice limber tip for that light bite you often get with the smaller cats
hey man i use medium heavy for all catfishing. they seem to be the best for me.
You'll get the same answer from 95% of those who post, medium heavy. You'll find that the m/h rods work better for getting unhung from snags and cast pretty well. Plus, you can upgrade your reels without having to immediately do so with the rods.
just like the rest, MH is the way to go.
just kiddin... m/h, i use a 10 foot m/h for all my cats/carp
Great, that's what I thought. All my ugly stick rods are med. hvy.:cool2:
Nothing less than a M/H. Unless you know the area real well and want the trill of a hard fight on a lighter pole. I sometimes do this in very clean ponds when I can allow the fish to run out a lot of line while I am fighting him in. It's exciting, but not the best way to catch fish.
