My birthday was saturday, the 23rd. Im 17 now. But with some of the money i got i drove on down to gander world and picked me up a 10 ft. medium heavy American spirit night stick. I also got me a quantum olympus spinning reel (salt water reel but it was the best fit for catfishing that they have.) but i love both of em and im gunna try and break em in this weekend possibly friday night. wish me luck.
