I am going to Fort Myers next week for some pier fishing. I have a small pile of gear stashed down there. The walleye gear will be fine for the most part. It seems that shrimp down there, is like crawlers up here. It the go to bait. Gulp shrimp seem to do well. A MUST is a gold Kastmaster, 1 oz. If you are going to be near Lady fish, a chrome/red Gotcha lure.
Make sure you rinse everything down when you are done. Salt does bad things to good equipment.
