Default Re: saltwater reel, okuma slv?

You might be able to get away with some of the freshwater tackle you already have. As long as the wind is reasonable and you don't throw huge flies you could probably get away with a 7WT.
You will be pushing the limits of a 7WT combo in saltwater conditions but it's only for two weeks and if you do any largemounth fishing the rest of the year the 7WT will get plenty of use there.
Will you be in the surf, on a boat or in a back bay type of scenario?
