Looking for a good rod and reel?

I am looking at getting my dad a new rod and reel for his birthday. He has always used baitcast reels and I know nothing about them. I am looking to spend no more than $170 for a reel. I think that is a good mid range to entry high level reel. Does anybody have any suggestions?

Also I am looking at getting a rod for my dad. He likes Ugly Sticks because they have been around forever, but I think it is time for a change. We fish mostly for Bass and Catfish, so I need something that has some backbone, but will still allow you to play with them. Also he likes trigger rods the best.

One last thing, the closest stores to me is Bass Pro Shop and Academy, so any suggestions from those stores is great!

With $170, you can outfit your Dad with quite a nice rig. Go to Bass Pro. A very wide selection of rods, reels, lures etc. One option of course, is to get a rod/reel combo. You really can save money that way, but may limit yourself if you want to get specific on gear ratios and rod styles. For the meager price of $49.99, you can pick up a Bill Dance baitcasting rod and reel combo. They will put line on it for free. I have one and use it no less than once per week, and love it. Its pretty standard-6:3:1 reel with a 6'6" rod, but it works.

For $70-$100, you can find a quality higher quality reel that is on sale, and have the option for more ball bearings and choice of gear ratios. Its hard to go wrong with 6:3:1 though. Daiwa, Pfleuger, and Citica are reels to look at.

As for rods, I reccomend the "Crankin' Stick". Its a Bass Pro rod, so will be a little cheaper, I own one and paid only $60 for it. Very light with great sensitivity and has a unique handle.

When you get your line spooled on your reel, I swear by Stren Original Monofilament Low-Vis Green. Spray with Reel Magic, and you have yourself a formidable fishing weapon. The Reel Magic, or any reel spray reduces line memory and seems to soften to line and cuts back on back lashes. Even when there is one, they are much easier to get out if you have your reel treated.

I fish for more than 5 hours day on one to two days per week-more if I can. Reel performance and rod sensitivity are vital to me. I hope this helps, and I hope your Dad will be catching fish soon!
