A 7 foot rod is a good for kayaking. That is what i mainly use.
If you want a afforidble but very good rod go with a ugly stick they are very good for kayaking.
Go with Medium Heavy action
also go with 15-20lb powerpro braid.
Reel either Penn slammers or Spinfishers. Both are excellent reels.
Again 7 foot Medium Heavy
Once again go for a ugly stick
Same line 15-20lb powerpro
