On my annual month long sojourn to the Kenai Peninsula this year I'm thinking of building up a surf rod and do some fishing off the beach as a change of pace. Now to my question I am looking at 2 blanks that are currently on sale. Both are 10 foot 2 piece, with the first rated 15 to 30# line and 1 to 4 oz weight. While the second is rated 20 to 40# line and 2 to 6 oz weight. Would I be able to get away with the lighter one when fishing off deep creek, anchor point, homer spit or would it be better to get the heavier blank?
Thanks in advance for your input.
