Arriving May 3, looking for information on fishing the flats or elsewhere for tarpon, bonefish, etc. I am trying to decide on whether to bring my own gear, or to rely on rentals. I'll buy a round or two for those who reply--On second thought, maybe I'll just buy a round or two....

Hey thanks Hacker! I won't be fly fishing, but I am taking spinning gear--rod rated 10-20 lb test, Penn 5000 series reel. Are you using plastics or hardware or both? I understand one should stick to silver crocodiles and the like, and plastic tube lures, but you sound like you definitely have the experience.
