I have always used spinning gear and love it. I have tried several times to use baitcasting reels. Tried some cheap ones and some expensive ones and was lucky if I got 2 cast in a row without a birds nest. So casting is out the door with one for me.

I want to start fishing for big cats and maybe even some striper. Can you do well with spinning gear?

What is a good but not to expensive setup?
