Using surf rod for bottom bouncing

Has anybody ever tried this? Would a stout 10' rod work well enough or am I just asking for a broken rod? I don't plan on hammering down the drag or have very high hopes of getting grouper off of wrecks; more so looking for beeliners, porgies and snapper suspended a little higher off the bottom.

I only get out a couple times a year and really don't want to buy a boat rod unless I have to.
