Hey guys, I just wanna start off by how much I appreciate the new catfish forum. I only use huntingpa forum so this is a big plus! Thank You!! Anyways, I've been doing a fair amount of cat fishing the past couple years and I'm ready to step up my game. I mainly fish down by raystown lake in the raystown branch of the juniata around riddleburg/saxton area. Caught some nice channel cats. Nothing bigger than 32" though. I use medium tackle mainly. Medium weight rod, medium sized reel. About 200yds of 12lb test. But my friend lives by the Susquehanna and has invited me up. Told me he can hook me up on some 20-40lb flat heads. He said we would be chuckin weights anywhere from 2-5 ounces. So I'm trying to say here is, what for casting reels would you choose, and what rod. Looking into something 7-8'6 in length and maybe a Abu Garcia reel but don't know what models or anything to go with. Thanks for all your guys' help in advance.
