Banana River NMZ advice

Good Morning everyone!

Any input appreciated, I fish primarily out of my Tarpon 120 in Southwest Florida around Englewood. I am slowly changing up to target more of the Merritt Island area (since I live in Polk County this makes the drive not too bad). I really want to learn the Banana River NMZ area out of KARS park for Trout and Reds. Any help from the people who know the area a little? I don't mind using artificials. Will my same baits work? I usually use Z-man Paddlerz on flutter hooks and also hard baits including mirro lures and the unfair lures line. Live bait isn't an issue either. I just need a little guiding on what to use and a little advice on what areas to start to look in. I am not asking for any secret spots are anything like that! Again anything will help and is appreciated, Thanks
