If you go conventional, and are fishing with bait, I'd recommend a Penn 525 Mag or Squall 15 on a 7',6" "Flippin' Stick". They're usually rated for 12 - 25 lb +/- and have a casting weight range of 3/4 - 2 3/4 oz +/- .

Spinning tackle is another option, especially for tossing lures, but you would need to make sure the drag is up to the task, since you mentioned Bull Reds.

Tight Lines !

A boat rod generally refers to a short, fairly stiff rod, without casting ability being a concern . . . Usually used for trolling or bottom-fishing from a, you guessed it, "boat" ( Piers & Bridges, too ).

A "normal" rod usually has more emphasis put on things that the boat rod doesn't do well.
