surf fishing in St Augustine in January

Family is heading to a place on  the beach in St Augstine right after New Years.  I'm not taking the boat but I hope to spend some time sitting on the beach with a beer and surf rod.  I've never spent any time in the area so any advice of bait, what's biting that time of year is appreciated.

    are there typically flounder or reds in the surf there?  I'm not sure if I will use a carolina rig on the bottom or take an inshore rod to find some calmer water for sheepshead.
