I have fished there many times, what type of fishing are you going to do?

From the beach, I prefer a fast action 8 weight and an intermediate line. Clousers and sardina patterns work the best IMHO. Most of the fish you will catch from shore are pretty small, but fun--ladyfish, small roosters, gafftopsail pompano, green jacks etc. You will also see the occasional big rooster or jack coming by, I like to use 20 or 25 pound flouro tippet just in case. Early and late is best, summer is HOT down there.

Offshore, I bring a 10 and 12 weight rod. Floating on the 10 with a crease fly or sardina, fast sinking on the 12 sith a sardina (I like one called the Baja Baitfish). Any time you catch a dorado, get rod ready to cast, there will be more following the hooked fish. I have had the best luck on tuna blind casting with a sinking line cast amongst the live chummed sardinas.
