I use an Abu Garcia Ambassador 5000 as they cast well against tough winds and seem to hold up very well against corrosion and other problems associated with saltwater fishing but a good spinning reel is fine. 30lb+ braid with a 20-30lb floroucarbon leader is absolutely essential. Live bait will do well in any area but you'll have to do some searching for your own spots
. My top artificial choice would be the Mirrolure mirrodine 17MR in hot pink/chartreuse. Works well for trout and reds but trout annihilate it in particular but youll need clear water for it to be most effective. Walk the dog topwaters will also be effective at times. Of course always look for oyster reefs or grassy areas in the bay. In late June/early July the green water will come up all the way to shore and when it does, its some of the best fishing youll ever experience.

Few men ever reach, in any one direction, the limits of their possibilities. As in commerce, so here, the relation of supply to demand rules. Our mechanical and intellectual forces increase or decrease according to the demands made upon them. He who uses most will have most to use.
