First Tarpon Trip - Advice?

Hi guys - long time reader, first time poster...

I have a trip planned for the last week in May to go out with the Robinson Brothers in Apalachicola, Fl for 4 days. I'll be going with a friend who has been fly fishing for the past 8 years HARD. He has taught me everything I know about this sport so far and has been most helpful.

This spring I learned to cast on a Sage RPLXi 9wt and have just fell in love with that rod. I have begun practicing with the same rod in a 12wt which is the what we will be using in FL. The transistion to the 12 wt has been a little tough and it is especially tough trying to learn to cast if from the ready position...

Any words of experience and wisdom that will keep me from just totally embarrasing myself on this Tarpon trip? Anything I should be sure to take with me beyond the rod and a change of shorts?
