A longer rod is always easier to cast than a shorter one of equal quality and speed. It takes less energy to do so,and that means you can fish longer. Musky are elusive ambush predators that take alot of casting to catch. My advice is to err on the long side, 10 ft. is not a long rod. If I were after Musky the Spey would be my rod of choice as close to the water you are, in a float tube,pontoon etc.

Yah, Charlie said he would go with a 10'er for Musky. By the way, I would love to see you roll cast that Musky fly. Actually I missed the word spey in that suggestion. I would like to see a spey cast from a float tube as well.
