Need help on a new Pike rod

Hey guys, I'm getting ready to build a new fly rod for northern pike as I plan on traveling by canoe in the boundry waters this summer. Do you think I can get by with a 7 weight if I limit the size of the streamers I use or do I have to move up to an 8wt if I don't want to wear myself out. Mind you we have to travel light up there and there won't be a second rod. The reason I lean toward the 7 wt is it will get a lot more use around home than the 8 wt. Thanks for your input
