      Comments about Shakespeare Ugly Stik Catfish Casting Rod, 8:

      I use this rod for bank fishing on the fast running waters of the Feather river in Northern California, Used for Stripper and Salmon, I need to use an 8oz weight to hold the lure in place, the Ugly Stick has just the right flexability and accuracy to get the weight plus lure/bait out far enough in the right spot to be effective and the sensativity to detect when a fish is on line or the water is moving the line. I have five Ugly Stiks of various sizes and actions never had one break in 25 years of uses. Second day out with my new Ugly Stik I pulled in a 20lbs 36" Chinook Salmon.

        Great rod. No worries about pulling in a monster with this. Typical "Ugly Stik" dependability. Paired it with an Abu Garcia 6500, and they are a match made in heaven.

            Comments about Shakespeare Ugly Stik Catfish Casting Rod, 8:

            Well, I described it as THE catfish rod, but it would do fine for other applications, such as carp fishing or light salt water.

            The rod arrived promptly in a heavy duty cardboard tube and was sealed inside a plastic bag on the inside--with plenty of packing to keep it from rattling around. Kudos for the shipping department.

            I put my reel on it and in a few days I was at the lake fishing with it. This particular lake is known for big catfish. I caught several, including two channel cats weighing 11 pounds and 15 pounds. The rod handled these fish easily and I know much much larger fish have been caught on this rod.

            In case you don't know, the Ugly Stiks are the gold standard in catfish rods. I am well satisfied with mine and intend to buy more so my family can fish with me. It's hard to go wrong with this rod.

            I have two of these that I bought a couple years back they are awesome. Pulled in tons of fish with these including over 10 pound catfish. and still using the original line that it came spooled with. Looking at buying a few more to replace some of the other rods that I have bought that are not as good.
