Welcome, I can't help you with Florida fishing, never had the pleasure ( but would like too). If fishing the surf a 10' rod can be a good overall length for starters, do you prefer conventional or spinning reels? Lots of options and opinions.

Thanks for the help. I would be fishing the surf and prefer a spinning rod. I say that because it’s the design I use most fishing locally. Thanks

Quite a few discussions on the forum right now about spinning reels you may want to check out, I like Daiwa Emblems and Shimano Ultegras, lots of options.
