The EPA is more worried about an outboard motor polluting the air than the fish you eat filled with mercury!!

Catfishing Gear???

I use Swedish ABU Garcia 6500's paired with Ugly Stik catfish rods and Trilene Big Game, and Vintage Penn 209's with the larger Ugly Stik rods and braid for the big boys. Live chubs, gills, or shiners, or cut shad and carp.

Don't overthink this...sounds like you have everything you need. Big baits catch big fish but a 10lb flathead on bass tackle is pure fun. And what's up with the undertow warning.....I didn't see you mention anything about swimming in the Muddy Miss.

Your rod,reel,line choice should be fine. Bait a big hook with chicken breast and hang on.

I'm pretty sure there are other people on this board who might be contemplating a similar trip or have a similar question that might benefit from the information in this thread.
