Andre, hire a guide! Spend the money for the best possible experience you can have given the time you have. Two of the best are: Kenny Collette 954-463-0512 and Jimmy Webber 1-800-982-3110. Take the 8wt with a floating line, tapered fluro-carbon leader, 9' with 10lb tippet. Crab patterns in white-olive,tan- brown, type colors. Your learning curve will be based on how quickly you pick up on how to sightcast to moving fish. You need to be able to make only 2 to 3 false casts and get it to the fish quick, they'er always moving!

Feel free to ask if you need more info, good luck, Mel
