Been looking around at different set ups for a combination rig for trophy bluecat and alligator gar. I am leaning at going with a large bait caster such as an Ambassador I like the red model and a 7 foot heavy action ugly stick with 65 lb braid. Most of my fishing will be from a boat but occasionally would try on the trinity from shore. Please offer any tips or advice for consideration. Another problem I have is I have always fished left handed and it is such a hang up finding bait casters with the handle on the left side that are affordable. Dicks sporting goods has a limited supply but if anyone comes across a good selection near Fort Worth please advise as well.
