An 8wt really is the best option for light saltwater, especially due to wind. It will also offer a bit more power to turn fish away from obstructions that produce breakoffs. A 9wt might be a better option for snook specifically, but an 8wt is always the #1 general purpose/starter saltwater rod.

I'd rather hunt fish than bait deer any day.
