10lb mono dia. the super line is the actually 20lb wt. super line.
Do I use a rod that is built for 10lb as if mono dia, or 20lb actual wt of super line.
That being said, a shorter rod is better for verticle jigging from a boat. I'd go 6'6" or even 6' like I do. A shorter rod will let you react more quickly, you'll be closer to the boat and the sonar, and you won't be moving the baits so much. When you use a longer rod, the bait's movements are more amplified distance wise than with a shorter rod.
The 6' has an advantage in quick response and accuracy when you're in close. Generally a boat rod for vertical jigging and pitching in shallow. The 7' is more of an all around rod and one that will give you more casting distance, allow you to throw cranks, and will give you more line pickup on the hookset. Generally, the longer rod will have a more forgiving tip for rigging too. I would go for the 7' if you don't want to own both. I wouldn't worry about room in the boat when you're picking the rod though.
