Default Re: New here... Need some help!

My main bass rod is also a 6wt and I find it perfect. Something to think about though will be the redfish. I don't have any personal experience with them, but from what I've seen in pictures, those bad boys get pretty big, and like to hang out in heavy vegetation. You may want a heavier rod specifically for the reds, but the speckled trout will warrant a smaller rod than your 6.

Basically, I think the 6wt would be a good compromise for bass and speckled trout, but reds might throw a wrench in the plan.

Can anyone with redfish experience lend a hand here?
