I just recently moved to Milton and live near the Escambia Bay Bridge. All of my fishing gear is for surf fishing, 8' and 12' rods. I know I need to switch to a lighter rod with medium action or less. What size rod should I be looking to use. I will be fishing for the usual suspects of trout, redfish, etc in the area. Would a 7' cover what I need, or I was looking at a 9' but would the delay be to much if I get a hit on my bait. All of my fishing will be done from the shore.
Thanks in advance for your help.
Tight Lines everyone

If you’re going to be fishing from shore you want something you can tote around pretty easy, 7’ medium action rod with a 2500 size reel is a good all around inshore set up.
