I have a boat, hence the boat rod :)
Just get an 8' 6" - 10' 6" heavy trolling rod then. Use a stout level wind real like a Tekota, load it with 60lb braid and go for it. Unless your specifically going for oversize sturgeon, heavy salmon setups (trolling or plunking) work great.

I use Shimano Travela and Terez Rods, I like the super fast tips that will notice the slightest bite.  No need for some broom handle sized rod, especially in winter or you'll never see the bite.  Just get one you can cast 12-20 ounce weights back behind the boat.   I do utilize lighter weight rods (20-30) when targeting Keeper sized versus when I target Oversize (80-200).   But I have fought OS on my lightest rods, just takes some following with the boat to get them released quickly.    Nothing wrong with cheaper Ugly Stick Tiger rods - super light tip also with plenty of back bone for when that OS takes you by surprise.
