I've been fishing the surf with a calcutta 700 and a 6'6" falcon costal. Yakin out and dropping bait 200 yds out or so. But I'm getting tired of paddling out. Want to start casting from shore I just can't make a decision on a rod. I'd by mainly using fish finder rigs with mullet. I also want the rod to be usable for the bay. So no 15'rs.
