I use rods from 6ft to around 14ft while fishing from a surf beach. I believe the advantage of the taller rods is that they allow for potentially longer casts and keep the line above the surf for a greater distance. Quite a few fish feed relatively close to shore so a large casting distance is not always essential.

Most types of bait would catch something if you use it for long enough. I personally like prawn, crab when targeting rig, and squid or pilchard for everything elese. From time to time I use other baits…
