I bought a Penn FierceIII 5000 for Saltwayer fishing. What Rod would you recommend for it. I place braided line 30lbs/ 300 yards. And it would be for pier fishing and surf as well. Rod length and power. What would your recommendations be. Thank you.

9' Ugly Stik gx2 (2 piece) also most salmon/steelhead rods work well for that reel. Medium/medium heavy. I have three set ups rigged like that for pier/surf/jetty fishing. Most "surf" rods are overkill.

Max u can use in a pier is 10ft in Galveston area so that can help. Most of my surf setups are 10ft other than my fierce II which was a combo and it has a 9ft Fierce ii rod. My jetty rods for jacks are
1 Diawa 5000 10ft Bass pro MH 50# braid 3oz spoons
1 diawa 4500 10ft bass pro MH 50# braid 8” dr fish popper
And my fierce ii for my backup
