I could use some help

I'm starting to come to grips with the fact the the striper season is just about over. Normally I kick over to trout mode using ultralight spin gear and yes I'll fess up to the power egg cast and wait method too. This year I'd like to get into fly fishing for trout and land locks. My questions are numerous but I'll stick with equipment for now. I'll be fishing primarily on open water not streams, at least not yet. Should I go with a 4,5,or 6wt. I was leaning toward the 5wt in a 9'. Would the 5wt be enough in the wind? Will floating line cover most of my needs or should I use an intermediate instead or additionally?
