Advice for Crystal River nearshore October 20

Hi all,
ive fished crystal river area many times in December/January but never fished it as early as mid October.

does anyone have any reccommendations on what to target and techniques in the nearshore area? 

Fishing from a hobie hobie kayak so range is limited to within a few miles of shore. If it helps, last time I fished there I was pedaling 10-12 miles/ day to give reference.

Any chance of any sharks around to catch?

    Lil Sharks are pretty much anywhere if you use live or cut bait on a bobber. I would put in at fort island in crystal river at the end of the road. paddle south west to crystal bay which is a big grass flat with oyster bars running north and south. Lots of trout, ladyfsih, jacks, spanish etc. Fish around the islands to the south on high tide for reds and snook.
    the brave may not live forever, but the cowards never live at all!
