If you're worried about tiring yourself out, go to an 8'6" 8wt. or 9wt. The shorter rod does make a big difference over the course of a day. They're hard to find. T&T had a Vector saltwater series in 8'6" but they've been discontinued.

The shorter rod is also better to use out of a boat and has more leverage on big fish.
