Hi guys,
last year I picked up an old Daiwa 4000C (silver series?) spinning reel from a guy at the flea market. I got it cheap 'cuz it was broken, but Im looking at it again after fixing it with jb weld.
Im pretty sure this was a saltwater reel, but I'd like to rig it up for catfishing (or fishing for other big freshwater fish).
Im on a tight budget though, so Im open to suggestions on line weight and rod compatibility

update
Im looking at pairing it to an Ugly Stick 7' heavy catfishing spinning rod
still debating on line though
*note:
I fish from shore mostly, so Im not gonna go with super high strength stuff, probably 20-35lb test

I have a real old Ryobi saltwater reel that looks like a close relative of your Daiwa.
Good luck!
