Hi David…For your fishing regulations questions I would encourage you to check-out the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources website at, http://www.mnr.gov.on.ca/en/Business/LetsFish/Publication/STEL02_163615.html , and check the specific regulations on bait restrictions and fishing seasons for the region you are planning on fishing. A 6 or 7\’ medium-action rod will be fine for channel catfish. I would load it with at least 14 lb. test line….God bless you, Italo
