    Depends on where you fish, in Florida an 7 or 8. Louisiana 9 or 10. I fished Louisiana this past December, smallest redfish put in the boat was 26 lbs. Never took the 8wt out of the case. We were using 9' 10wt Meridians stripping 5"~6" Clouser/Whister patterns.

    Hmmm! Louisiana is closer. I was considering a nine weight as it may be more versatile in the salt. I probably wouldn't be fishing from a boat much, at least at first until I can get a better idea of where I wind up. I know my way around bass boats and canoes so maybe I can rent something.

    Without a boat or some sort of watercraft it's going to be next to impossible from what I have seen, at least in Louisiana. For me if redfish is your target Louisiana is the best fishery in the world. Massive fish and lots of them.
