An Hawaiian fisherman needs help!

Aloha, my name is Hona I am from Maui Hawaii and just like many of you been fishing since I could walk! I am spending two weeks in the Fort Myers area middle November to dec 1st.  Would greatly appreciate general help because the fishing is so different!    Inshore snook/ trout/ Redfish I have an idea, but I would love help on where you guys catch live bait of a Sabiki?    Catch them off a bridge off a channel marker?  I appreciate any advice you can give me!   P.S I am a huge conservationists

    You can get bait off the 3 span bridge between FM and Sanibel or off the beaches.  I'm not too sure about Nov./Dec. but you can usually find bait in one of those two places year round.  Only problem is sometimes beach bait runs small.

    Use some tiny bits of squid, and you should be able to get some pinfish on a sabiki anywhere there’s some grass or cover. Great bait. Or cast a jig for some ladyfish, also good cut bait. Good luck!
