There doesn't seem to be a forum for introductions, so since I am from AZ I figured I would post this in the AZ forum. I am a catfishing noob, I mostly fish for cats at Bartlett Lake with my buddies. The biggest I have caught so far is a 5 pound channel and an 8 pound flattie. I got my first surf rod for Xmas, I put an old Penn 160 on it. I am going to try it out when it warms up a little, I usually use medium freshwater spinning combos, so it will be a new experience for me. I want to get a Baitrunner 6500 and put it on an Ugly Stick, but I am not going to spend the money on it right now since I won't fish much until it warms up. I like to Trout fish up north also, but I like catfishing best. I also like camping, hunting, shooting, hiking, and off roading. Anyway, that is my story and I am sticking to it.
