Yep

I'm all set, of course I always am !
I did have to have the boat in the shop for a few days & I got my last St Croix musky/cat rod. I went with the 7' as the 7' 6" was actuually only about 3-4" longer & that was in the handle. From the reel seat to the tip it's only about an inch difference & $10.00 less too. That gives me 2 pairs, and will transport better in the boat. Gives me 2 of the 7-6 and 2 of the 7-0 I have a 8' Classic cat & a 6'9" Avid series rod too. Now they will alternate in the rod racks nice, better to not have all the same size.

I'm pretty much too excited to sit still anymore, sitting at work daydreaming about catfishing. lOL yup, channel cats are already starting to hit in the big river. Crappies are starting too.
