Would a 1-4 oz surf rod with a ZB 25 survive the canal?

It will survive. However, what size lures are you intending to throw? 

 

Personally, I often thrown lures in the 3 - 5oz range. I occasionally throw 6 oz lures when the tides are really riping or it's windy and I'm trying to hit deeper holes in the ditch.

 

If your lures are within the range of your rod's ratings, you'll be ok.

So 50lb braid is the go to there? Will 40 lbs Bok

Yes I used 40 pound braid on multiple fish up to 30 pounds

I strongly advise you taking korkers

We didn’t use waders last week 

and yes lots of mosquitoes during dark hours

if you are planning to uses 5 oz jigs you need a heavier rod.

use big pencil poppers, all sizes of sebile swimmers and stick shads, large Mac color so minnows, I did well on big metal lips too. But the action was mostly top waters

Please don't use light gear.  It WILL be packed and it's extremely annoying when it takes someone 10 minutes to land a 20 pound fish because they're using light gear.  It's not good for the fish or your fellow anglers that are down current of you.

It depends on which month, when, where, which tide and if there's a hot bite that the report chasers will flock to.

Mornings are pretty much always packed nowadays. It might not be insanely packed (dependent on how the fishing is) but you can count on there being plenty of anglers. 

 

Is the 1-4 you’re asking about the Stealth? If so, you’re going to be extremely under-gunned.

Stealth graphene to be exact..... faster and stronger then original stealth.... can whip 20s and 30s on the rocks np..... .. it has tremendous power...... It can handle fast moving moon tide inlet currents with ease

I was undergunned with my Blackhole Striper Surf 2-5oz when jigging, and that's a very fast rod. When I switched to my Rodgeeks 10ft 3-8 jigging a 5oz savage became MUCH more enjoyable. There's no way you're gunna effectively a 5oz savage type jig with a 9ft 1-4oz rod unless you're a freak! 

I will add that I'm normally the guy who goes as light as possible in any situation, you really need as much power as possible to land a fish in a reasonable amount of time both to release the fish alive and also so you don't piss off the guys standing downstream waiting to cast..

You got to be ready to jig and with a 1-4 your running too light.  Most times I'm jigging 5-6 oz unless its dead slack .  the 1-4 will be fine for pencils and swimmers there though.

I never recommend 9'6" Black Hole Striper 2 - 5 oz for jigging. That is purely plugging rods. For jigging only, many anglers use 10' and 11' Black Hole Surf II Heavy rod. For combination of plugging and jigging I recommend 10' and 11' Black Hole Striped Bass Special 2 oz - 8 oz rod.
