Just want some advice on plugging on the rocks in SF
Is a 10ft surf rod to long to use ?

Unless you got Popeye type arms, or it's a light 10', after 10 or so casts you'll probably stop plugging. My longest rods are a 8.5' Lamiglass MH casting and a 8.5' Fenwick MH Spinning. Both are fairly light and I can cast all day with them. Paired them up with a low profile baitcaster or 5000 series abu garcia bait caster, or a shimano 4000 series spinning reel.

Steelhead or bass rods are the choice of most bay pluggers. Perfect for the smaller fish usually caught these days. Plus they handle the light jigs, swimbaits and lures alot better. If you want to throw heavy stuff such as top water or metal than you want a surf rod. Really it depends on what you want to catch and how far you need to cast.
