I'm in the market for a new fishing rig for shorefishing use at a local Virginian lake. The only species of catfish in the lake are channels, and the lake itself is relatively small. But I'm not sure what the specifications of the rig should be. Medium or heavy action? What pound test should I use? Spinning, spincasting or baitcasting? Also, what kind of bait and how much of it would you recommend for the rig? I've been using bait that is too heavy for mine, so I can barely cast.
