I need to get more practice in using a baitcaster before I start using one for my catfishing. I keep a rod and reel in the trunk of my car (not my normal fishing vehicle) for fishing during lunch and immediately after work. The car has a pretty small trunk, but I can fit a 5' 6" two piece rod in it. I looked on Shakespeare's site and couldn't see an Ugly Stik that fits these requirements, so I am looking for something that would work well. Rod will be mainly used for bass, with some action from whatever else hits on it (including cats up to 5#, I catch them on spinners). 5' 6" or shorter, 2 pieces, Medium action, casting rod. I guess if it is more than 2 pieces it could be longer, but longest piece can't be any longer than 2' 6". Yes, I have a really small trunk on the car ('05 Crossfire convertible).
