I am looking for a new rod to fish for cats and strippers. The area I fish that has larger cats (12 - 20 lb range) and strippers (8 - 16 lb range). It is in the aqueduct which is like a cement lined river, water runs about 10 to 20 knots when the gates are open. It's about 30 - 40 ft wide and about 20 - 30 ft deep.

if youre looking for something a little cheaper, go with an uglystick catfish rod....i've taken mine out to the peirs for salmon and have launched 3/4 oz spoons a mile with a musky baitcaster......then just get strange looks as i reel in a 20 lb salmon like it's a bass, most guys out there play the fish till it's almost dead....then again most of the time i release them...the faster it gets in, the better off the fish is....i also get funny lucks from the peir rats after tossing in a fish lol.....the rods have a softer tip, but it's great for casting and they can take a beating....
