What To Bring: What to bring obviously revolves around what you want to chase. But, if like us, you're just going with the flow, you'll want to bring a few neccessities. For the fly guy, 9- or 10-weight rods will have you covered on big reds and jacks. Just make sure you have a large arbor reel that can take some punishment. Floating lines suffice for most applications, but it's not a bad idea to throw a clear intermediate sink-tip in your bag. Large poppers, Deceivers, Clousers, and gurglers get smashed...if you can get them in front of the fish. If specks are more your game, pack a trusty 7-weight and a few smaller shrimp flies and poppers. When guide Sonny Schindler heads out, his sled looks like a pin cushion from a distance. He carries everything from light spinning outfits, to those that feel more life a telephone pole, to cover him for everything from slot reds to 300-pound bull sharks. Braid from 20- to 80-pound fill his reels, and he makes sure he has plenty of popping corks, because they can spell the difference between an eat and a snub.
