Ok, so I have a new 8' medium-heavy calypso mako spinning setup I had gotten as a gift through work. I tried to cast it a couple times but it's a total beast. The heavy 30 lb mono just slaps against the guides and is coiled like a slinky so I cant get much distance on it. Im pretty sure its a surf casting rod but i live south of chicago so saltwater is kinda outta the question. My question is how can make this useful so it isnt just collecting dust in my garage? I was first going to respool it with 80 lb braid instead of the mono. Im not really sure what I could fish with it around here. Catfish? Help me out please.
