I will be honeymooning in about four months, is that even a word? We plan to go to Mexico and I plan on fishing some while there. The question I have is about the hardware neccessary for these fish. I don't know if a 10wt. tod will be enough or is 12wt. too much. Also, what length should I be using. I know the reel is very important in fighting fish this size. Would it be wise to divide my funds up to accomodate a more espensive reel and less so for the rod? Any recommendations on reel brands and length/wt for the rod would be great.
