Florida Keys gear questions
I am planning a kayak fishing trip along the Florida Keys Overseas Paddling Trail and looking for tips on gear.
I plan on getting an Abu Revo Inshore combo, a Curado 300EJ combo, an Abu 7000i combo, and a fly rod (although I have never fly fished I'd like to take a cheap one to play with). Do you think these will cover it or should I add or omit? Any other recommendations? I will be kayaking and camping so will being staying inshore and in the backcountry so wanting to catch whatever can be found there (tarpon, permit, trout, snook, etc - maybe a shark or two with the big reel!).
I also plan on spooling these with 50lb braid. Does the color matter since the water is so clear? Any suggestions on tackle, lures, bait, leaders, etc? This will be my first time fishing in the Keys or for any of the big 3 so any tips would be great.
Thanks so much for any info you can give!
