It's time for my grandson (7 yrs old) to cast his own rod, lol! I've used spinners since I landed on the Mayflower and he catches all the fish because I'm constantly re-baiting and casting. I assume spin-casters are still the starter-reels of choice, but I haven't looked at any in years. Anybody recommend a a good one. We mostly trout, smallmouth fish in the mountains, so I'd prefer something that came with (or at least would handle) 6lb. test line or less. If it's a combo with a nice little 5-51/2' light weight rod, so much the better. What's out there? If we go after cats, that's a waiting game and we'll take my stuff.
