What do you think about a Daiwa Emcast Plus 6000 on a Shakespeare Powerod Bigwater Spinning Rod, 7′.?

I plan on fishing for Tarpon off a private pier in the Florida Keys. I know the rod is a bit short but I have to travel with it and I have a kayak on site to paddle out my baits.
There are so many options available for rod and reel choices that I’m not sure what to chose.
My budget is around 130 dollars.

choosing a kayak ;?

which kayak would be better

malibu stealth 14

wilderness tarpon 160 Angler
i will trolling, fly fishing, and casting in the chesapeake bay, back bays on the alantic ocean and freshwater fishing
also what are the pros/cons of each yak

i intend purchasing a sea kayak and would like some advice please.?

I will be using it for fishing, touring/camping trips and also to go snorkelling from. I am undecided but do like the look of the Wilderness Systems Tarpon 120 and the Ocean Kayak Prowler 13 Angler. I am leaning towards the Prowler. Any suggestions please?
