    Ok everyone has wired little things that have to be set right (clean towels,fresh line,sharp knives,ect) mine are fresh line and all my rods have to be the same for the same fish. And now i have a shimano cardiff cuz i got it for a great deal. And so i want a rod but i have another thing where i can not use any brand rod/reel aside from shimano,daiwa,quantum,penn,avet,pfluger,allstar,gloomis,saint croix,ect so what this boils down to is I will not buy a ugly stick or what most of you guys use and i want a rod so Will a shimano cardiff and quantum blue runner med/heavy 10-25 line '7 foot 50lb power pro work for big blues and flatheads from shore?

    I think that your set-up will work just fine for Flatheads and Blues. There are many of us who have our own little quirks that we do when preparing for fishing trips or aquiring our catfish arsenals. A few of mine are the following:.....Everytime I go Flathead Fishing.....I must have Live Bluegills. All my rods are Med/ Heavy and 8', 9', 10',....All reels hold brand new line in 20# or, no line older than 6 months and having been checked for frays from the hook back onto the reel for about 30 yards. All my reels are big and hold at least 300-500 yards of line. All hooks must be new or checked and sharpened and must be a 9/0 King Kahle. All leaders and 3-way swivel rigs are inspected and most of the time they are totally re-done with new line and swivels and hooks. I must have 4 of my heavy duty bank rod holders and every one is placed about 15 yards apart making them all watchable form a distance in my folding chair. Each rod must have a 8" glo-stick attached to the end. I fish every tuesday night all night long and into the mid-day of wednesday with some of my freinds and BOC brothers. When I fish for Bluecats, I must have fresh Bluegill heads or fresh cut skipjack. I could go on and on about my OCD. Does this sound weird to anyone or are there more of us out there ?................:eek:oooh::eek:oooh::smile2:

    hey i have the blue runner inshore rod with the same rating its a nice rod but i wouldnt use more than 30lb line unless you want the bigger dia for abrasion. tossing anything over 3oz with it isnt too easy either. i have cought plenty of channel cats upto 38" on it but be prepared for a good fight
