A 5 weight line on a 6 weight rod is one issue. You don't have enough line mass to put a load in the rod to throw your payload. You may want to use a 6 weight or even a 7 weight line to help make it all come together.

If you can make the time, drive down to Bob Nakagawa's shop in Modesto (Sierra Anglers). Make sure to show Bob what you have, so he can get your gear set up properly to fish the way you wish to fish.

I like Fred's response.
