It will work but a SL40 would be better suited. You're going to spend a long time reeling in after every cast with a SL30.

The rod will work fine with a 5oz and nice bait. Some guys, HOW I don't know fish a 9oz on the rod, I don't recommend over 7oz (total casting weight (sinker and bait))with it though.
