New to Sannibel/Pine Island Sound Area

Hey everyone,
I am primarily a bass guy and fish around 20-22 tournaments a year.  We are new to the salt water game over that way and are needing some help.  Looking for some advice on everything from rods and reels we need for tarpon to snook fishing.  Also where are the best places to fish and catch live bait as well. 
Thank you for any help it is much appreciated!
