I am going surf fishing down on matagorda around late August to early September. I want to catch redfish, Sharks,black drum, and a few jacks if possible. I have a penn senator 4/0 spooled with 440 yds. Of 40 lb mono. I am not after huge sharks but would like to catch some around 4 ft. Or so. I also have some pre made shark leaders and some 6oz. Spider and pyramid sinkers. I do not have a kayak so I am thinking that I could float my bait out by tiring a balloon to the line. If this does not work I might look into just renting a kayak to get my bait out. Also what kind of bait should I use and how far should I take the bait out? Thanks

For Shark, any cut bait or small-medium live bait. Early September is just before the bull red run, you might catch some reds on mullet in the second cut. Black drum use shrimp and crab. Jacks, anything will work if they're there.

Alright thanks can you get to the second gut by wading. I am 5'6'' I will definitely try the cut bait. Will the gear I have work? I also have a penn fierce 8000 spooled with 300 yds of 20lb mono.
