Hello! I am SO happy I found this site. I am coming down for the first time ever and am very excited. This site has really pumped me up with all the information available. I am looking forward to fishing from the beach. I plan on bringing my light fishing rod/ reel that works well on Arkansas crappie and I hope works for me while I relax this next week. I've never caught a fish from the ocean, so I won't be too particular. Of course, I will get my license - I hope they sell them at Wal-Mart or somewhere close by. Any suggestions on what kind of lures/ rigs I can pick up when I get down that will let me enjoy the fishing? Do I need to buy "saltwater line" for my pole? Any help is appreciated. Thanks so much!
