What's a good reel to get for fishing cat fish, or similarly sized fish? My friend recommends a Wavespin, but I'm a novice fishermen (and so is he), so I would like to hear from some experienced fishers out there before buying anything.
Any reply to that question is going to just be someone's personal opinion. There are some spinning reels out there that will handle catfishing...and in various price ranges. But, let me make a suggestion... For catfishing have you considered something other than a spinning reel...either a baitcasting reel, or even a spincast reel. Unless you go to a surf-type or ocean fishing reel, which are generally more expensive, you will probably find a larger selection of baitcast and spincast reels that are made to handle "BIG" fish like catfish.
You say you are a novice fisherman. As such I'd suggest a spincast reel. It is just easier and simpler for a beginner to use than either a spinning or baitcasting reel.... I have been a fisherman for 60 years, and have quite a few rods and reels dedicated strictly to catfishing, and with only a couple of exceptions (baitcast reels) all are spincast reels.... I have a number of spinning reels, but none are used as catfish reels................. Like I say, any answer will be personal opinion, and those are mine, for what they are worth.
Seems to me that "Time" is merely an artificial concept, created by man, with which to hassel himself.
