IRL system advice please

Hey fellas, Ill be heading to cocoa beach for the whole week, the week of labor day. I was just wondering if yall wouldn't mind sparing alittle advice as to some general areas to fish. I will be bringing my boat which is a 16' center console that can float in about 10" and have a pole and trolling motor to get skinny. I also have a couple of kayaks I can bring along if yall think it would be worth my while. I plan on booking a charter on one the first days I'm there to kinda show me the ropes so any recommendations on good captains would be greatly appreciated as well! I would mainly like to target some big bull reds this area is famous for, but I wouldn't mind catching some the big gator trout or a snook if Im lucky. I fish steinhatchee every weekend so if anybody wants some info on that area I would be glad to swap info with you! Thanks to all that respond!
