Due to Saturdays training session,Im a lot more comfortable about the fishing the bays. Ive never fished the bays, so I dont know what I need. For the short term Im going to use a 6ft med spinning rod and a 2000 size reel with 6lb mono on it. I have an extra spool, should I mount some heavier mono or even braid? The bigger problem lies in what should I connect to the end of my line. What kind of lures, plastic, etc should I start collecting to fish the bays and maybe even fresh water. Im looking for help guys, try and give some specifics. Thanks

Hey Robert i been catching quite a variety of Fish in the bays dropshotting 3 inch gulp minnows,u can basically Just drift it On the bottom & twitch it every so ofter.ur Rod & Reel combo sounds fine but i would go up to 8-10 lb line.thats Just what i would perfer.
