6500’s are a great reel size. I use 20 or 25 pound mono most of the time. I use j hooks from number 4 to catch bait fish up to 6/0 circle hooks to hold large cut bait. The best way to catch something is live shrimp. Mullet or croakers are great for redfish and trout. I use a 3/4 ounce egg sinker held with a split shot about 18 inches above the hook; fished on the bottom. You can also use popping corks, especially for the live shrimp. If you catch a pinfish, or ladyfish, cut it up and use it as bait. Good luck and let us know how you do.
