Fishing tips? Panama City Beach

I all, i will be coming down from MI to Panama City next week with my kids for a vacay. Can you please give me some tips on what to use, fishing from the beach? My kids are 6 and 7. I'm not looking for trophy fish, just some insight on what to use( wieghts, lures, worms, shrimp, etc.,.). I'm a novice fisherman, just looking to put a smile on my kids faces. Any input helps.

Thanks in advance,

    May be some pompano or Red Fish along beach--I's use live shrimp on 1/0 hook on carolina rig. This is basically a sliding sinker rig made by threading a 1/2 oz egg sinker on your main line, then tying on a #3 to #5 barrel swivel to it. Then tie hook to about 24 inches of 20 lb flourocarbon leader and ie that to the barrel swivel. Can use the same rig to fish for redfish and sea trout in the bay and Sheepshead around pilings. Stop by Half Hitch Tackel on Thomas Drive and Tom and his staff can help. Good luck!
