where will you be fishing? when i went to dead man's caye i used a 6 wt and it was fine even for most (but not all) wind. on grand bahama, i would stick to an 8 wt. reason, bigger fish......much bigger. size of fish, wind and sharks are the determinitive factors. keep in mid these fish are on the flats and are as strong and as spooky as hell. far more so than stripers. if you are under gunned you will lose your fish to sharks....regularly.
