April Vacation in SW Florida- What do I bring?
I'm a native NJ fisherman, and coming to the Fort Myers/Cape Coral area in April.
My plan is to ship a rod or two and looking for advice on length and power, etc. to bring.
I'm looking to do some surf fishing around Sanibel Island or Ft. Myers beach. I'm also hoping I can find a local willing to have someone join them on the boat, so I assume whatever would be best for the Caloosahatchee, or Gulf coast boat fishing.
Some posters in another forum I belong to suggested light tackle for up to 3/4 lures, but that seems way to light for what I'm looking to do.
Most of the rods I have are 7ft M or MH, as well as a 9ft 3/4-3oz surf rod. My reels are SSV 4500 and 5500. 20/30lb Sufix 832 respectively.
Or is it more feasible to buy something when I get there?
