I'd look at an eight to ten weight in a fast action, it will also work for snook and bass. And use a good stripping basket, I learned that one the hard way. Figure clousers or epoxy headed streamers in the surf, so you want a rod that will turn them over, but not kick your butt to cast. As to reels anything that will hold 150_200 yards of 20 pound dacron with a decent drag will do.
