Default Re: correct reel and rod wt for reds need help pls!

A 9 wt would not be overkill at all. I know a guy whose go to rod is a 10wt over lined with 11wt line! i guess it depends on where you are planning to fish. some fisheries are better that others. in the winter in south Louisiana you can get into some BIG fish. thats the only place i fish for reds and an 8wt is the lightest i'll go. but everyone is entitled to their opinions.
