I just got a passed down Penn 60 reel (from a long departed uncle). I know its primarily a salt water reel but I don't live anywhere near the beach (DFW). It is clean and has been stored well so I'm looking at making it a catfish combo. Any suggestions for a dedicated big cat setup using this reel? Primary fishing will be from a boat. Thanks for looking!
Chief Wiggum: This is Papa Bear. Put out an APB for a male suspect, driving a... car of some sort, heading in the direction of, uh, you know, that place that sells chili. Suspect is hatless. Repeat, hatless.

I'd put it on an 8' MH MeatHunter Rod, spool it with 20lb Suffix Elite mono, run 40/50 lb mono leaders.

you would need 2 miles of 20 lb to fill that reel!

I would spool it with 30 and stick it on a proangler.
