Default What to Bring....Fishing Marathon

Staying in Marathon for a week in May, going to be doing some Tarpon, permit, snapper Fishing. What is something you brought or forgot on your trip that you wish you had or glad you had.
Should I plan on catching my own bait or buying bait? Ill be packing a cast net but am wondering if I should bring some traps too? What have yall had the best luck doing for bait in early May

Dramamine! That first week in May usually blows for start of grouper season. May is tough on bait. Pinfish traps always produce on bayside. Best bet .

If it's windy, Bahia Honda and 7 mile bridge are great for tarpon. Mullet at 7 mile and crabs at BH. Florida Sport Fishing has a youtube episode with Sea Squared showing how to fish BH. If you can bring a couple dozen crabs down that'll help.
