I'm a stillwater guy with zero saltwater experience and figured I better look here for help. My 2013 trip plans for Alaska has been changed and my new destination with 2 friends is Baja (East Cape). We have just started the planning phase of the trip. Although we do plan on using a guide for a couple days, most of the trip is geared towards roaming the shores. Right now my largest rods are a 7 and 8 wt. I'm leaning towards adding a switch rod and was hoping someone could help me out deciding what I really need for a shore rod. I get a really good deal on Ross reels, so whatever I buy I would like to pair it up with a Ross LA if possible. Any input on reels would be greatly appreciated as well.
