    Sounds sufficient to me, just make sure to use a big, strong hook(Gamakatsu 8/0 circles are good and inexpensive)

    your in good shape, ugly cats are as tough as they come I've personaly landed 43 lb blue on white 8' ugly , still have it in my collection. Abu. are good reels also. I like 7000 but 6 thousand series work good 6000, 6500, 6600, 5000 series, will work but on the light end in my opion.
