Whats everyone favorite cat rod and reel??
My favorite is an 8' 6" Daiwa Heartland salmon/steelhead MH rod with a Bass Pro 6000 series reel. Very nice, well balanced combo, but it has the muscle to lean into a big boy if I need to. My next favorite is a 7'6" Ugly stick with a garcia 6500 on it. That silly rod seems to always get the most bites and catch the most fish, no matter where I am.
I would have to say that my favorite rod is the Berkley E-CAT #4, the tip is sensitive enough to detect the fish that arent biting agressive, but you can put the muscle to the frisky ones, i match them up with a Garcia 7000 C3, and i also have a Shakespear Tidewater 30LA on one of them, I dont think I could fish without my ECATS...I love them
I've always used either a zebco 202 (for bluegill) and a 404 (for the kittys). as for the rods, if tryed many different ones... currently I've got a 7' ugly stick with a 404 and a 4' 3" shakespear with the 202 for bluegills...
abu 6000's with big berly 7ft rod from walmarts.
Currently my favorites are my m/h Quantum BigCats with Abu 6500's mounted on them.
7 ft Ugly Stick Tiger Rod with Abu Garcia 7000, it puts a whoopin on the flatties
I just got my Custom BOC Gator rod & it handeled 7oz today like it was 2 oz. I like the rod alot.
daiwa beefstick...best rod for the money hands down...
I'm partial to my Berkley Big Game rods from Wally world, topped off with Abu 6000's or 7000c3 reels.
What works for me is a Eagle Claw 8 f't Cat Claw Rod with a Penn 210 works excellent.
I have 2 seven foot MH action Ugly Stik Tiger rods that are my favorites but then again I dont have a custom built Gator rod. I have heard a lot good things about them and plan on buying one.
I like the american premier rods as well as my black beuty rod.Both 8 foot.
i have 2 12 foot xtra heavy ugly stiks that i just got this year and i will have to say they are awesome! rated at 24 ounces i can put a 12 ounce sinker on and a pretty good sized skip jack or shad and not have to worry about snapping the rod on the cast. i love these rods. i also have 2 7 foot medium action ugly stik tiger rods for boat fishing that i'm pretty partial to.
My favorite one is the Danny King Signature 7' med hvy. Very nice pole for the money. I have a 6500c3 on it.
quantum bigcats are my favorite boat rod. 13' meathunter is my favorite bank rod.
Surge rods are without a doubt my favorite! They have plenty of backbone but a light enough tip to see little bites. They handle big weights (16 oz) really well as well. I love them and recommend them to anyone!
16oz weight?Good lord man what do you use a boat anchor?lol
7' MH action Ugly Stick with Abu Garcia 6500. Awesome and just about 100 bucks.
