Looking for a new Salmon/Steelhead rod to fish the surf in San Diego and cast lures off the MB jetty. I've already got a ML 8'6" Fenwick Eagle paired with a Penn 4000 Fierce3 that I use for perch, croaker and corbina. It's all fine but I want something a little heavier for whipping 3/4- 1oz lures out past the surf for larger surf species like Halibut. The 8'6 isn't cutting it and feels overloaded. I've narrowed it down to the Okuma SST-902MA and M Moderate action rod 8-17lb, the Daiwa North Coast NC902MHFS MH Fast 8-17lb, the Fenwick Eagle EAG90M-MS-2 MH Fast 10-20lb all rated to 1oz. lures and an Lamiglas X-11 8'6" H Fast 12-25lb rated to 1 1/2 oz. lures. Anyone use or fished these rods I'd be grateful for some insight. I'll be pairing it with a Penn Battle 2 4000 reel.
