Mikal, when I bank fish I use the same set up as you for catfishing around creek mouth's of the Arkansas river here in Tulsa except I use a 6500C3 and a 6500C4 with 17lb Cajun line,these are also the same one's I use for striper fishing. If I fish the river I use a 10ft heavy action pole with a Abu 7000 with 20lb Berkely Big Game.
If your still looking for catfish stuff check this place out. I've used them before and was please with their service, they have very good price's on their big rod's and baitcast reel's.
