Shakespeare Ugly Stik Catfish Spinning Rod and Reel Combo
Great fishing pole!!
Ordered this pole and set it up with 50lb spiderwire. On my first day fishing I caught a 20 pound blue and it handled it like it was nothing. I was gonna replace the reel with something better, but after handling the fish I don't really feel like I need to anymore. Can't wait to catch a 40 or 50 pounder. Shipping was extremely fast too, got it in 2 days. Very pleased with my purchase, to say the least.

Great Catfish setup!! I used a pair of these when I was fishing in NE one night and they are excellent! I re-spooled it with a 15 lb. P-line and was still able to get great casts with a 3/4 oz. egg weight. The fact that the rod was colored white, made it easy to see with my lantern near me. No need to buy glow indicators..The reel was smooth and stood up to the cats all night long!!!! My biggest being a 33 inch 25.7 pounder!!! Can't beat an Uglystick!!

This is my go to catfish rig! I have hauled in many of channel cats, and large flatheads with this rig and it still keeps bringing them in.
I really like the strength of the rod, it holds up to the larger fish well, the reel has been a solid performer as well.
I would highly recommend this set up for anybody serious about catching some big cats.
