I always use a 9' 6" uptider rod, mainly because if I suddenly decide to do some bait fishing with say a 4 oz sinker, it enables me to do that too. I put a fairly light FS reel on it which holds around 200 yds of 12/15 lb line, currently an Okuma with three BB's which cost me about 30 at the time. It's the rod that really matters though - you want something that you can keep casting without getting too tired but it has to be able to deal with a sizeable bass too.

Hi Phil,
What I'm using at the moment is a two and three quarter test curve carp rod with a 4500 size reel loaded with 30lb braid and 15ft of 30lb nylon leader for mackerel with 2oz lead and four feathers. For spinning I change the leader to 15ft 20lb fluorocarbon. Nice and light to use all day and won't over power the fish.

I would suggest a lightish bass rod, 1 to 3 oz should be OK, if you are shore or rock fishing. Which one depends on the budget you re thinking of for the rod but there are several around.

There are number of spinning rods as well, I use a Daiwa Wilderness but that is a 6 piece travel rod but does well for what you require as that was why I bought it. If you go for a spinning rod get one for a reasonable weight as they are not a saltwater rod and the sea is a harder environment then freshwater. Perhaps a pike/predator spinning rod.

Thanks for the suggestions guys. I've pick up a shakespeare salt 10' spinning rod for 30. Its rated for 1-3 ozs, so hopefully it will do the trick. Unfortunately i went get a chance for a few weeks to give it a try.
