I found a couple of reports of what the guys were using to catch some of the fish mentioned on the website. 12 lb test line with a 25 lb leader is a bit lighter than the Pacific stuff I mentioned above. Thats pretty light for taking some of the species mentioned. I agree with Gordon. Call ahead and get the info, then visit your local Wally World or K mart. Bass Pro Shops will have everything you could want, but they price it up a bit and Most WalMarts near any salt-water stock inexpensive gear. I did notice that the bait situation seemed pretty well ’tilted’ towards live or fresh dead bait…as opposed to artifical lures. That should save you some money also.
