New to Marco Island kayak fishing
I live on the east coast of FL, but my family got together to buy a house out on Marco Island, right off winterberry drive. My main fishing experience has been freshwater fishing here in Ft. Lauderdale, and I have fished a lot off of my kayak here as well in lakes and such.
Any advice for someone new to the salt water game especially for Marco? Especially for what artificial baits to use? I know just using pilchards or shrimp will buy me a bite, but in terms of artificials from my research so far, many people recommend various DOA shrimps and CAL baits, terror eyes, (what colors??) as well as Mirrolures for Snook, Tarpon, Redfish, and Trout. These are the fish I aim to catch.
Now for the kayak, any spots you guys recommend to launch from? I've seen a lot of people recommend tiger tail beach for fishing, but is it good for the kayak as well?
Where would I launch from to fish the flats? Definitely excited for this specifically
Also, would you all recommend an anchor or a stake out pole if I want to anchor for the fishing I am doing?
Sorry for the loads of questions, but just trying to learn from you all who are very experienced with it before I go out for my first trip to fish. Looking forward to learning as much as I can from this forum!
