Re: 6 wt bass fishing
Anything you throw on your 8wt can be thrown on your 6wt. Obviously, they will land a little shorter, but how many bass do you seriously hook at 60ft?
My standard bass rod is a 6wt and I throw some big heavy/fluffy stuff. Don't give it a second thought, just keep using what you've been using. You will soon realize your 8wt was unnecessary.
