Fishing in Green Turtle Cay waters

I will soon own a boat in Green Turtle Cay Bahamas and for the next 3 winters will go to it for a few weeks each winter and then be living on it from Nov to May each year. I plan on doing a lot of fishing primarily from a dinghy that comes with the boat and will fishing the flats, reefs and shallow areas but no deep sea fishing. So primarily lighter tackle and for smaller fish that can be eaten or catch and release. I have fished the great lakes a lot and have some tackle but need to know what I will need for this salt water fishing such as lures, line, weights, reels, rods etc. I prefer to cast or troll although I read that they do a lot of bottom fishing around reefs. I will stock up over the years and take it down when I go each winter but will need some basics for my first trip this winter (Feb 1015). I was thinking that I would get a spinning reel and rod and also a trolling reel and rod and have 12 lb and 20 lb line. I am assuming I will need leaders and weights and lures but have no ideas what they use there. Not looking to catch any large game fish. I would also like to know what if anything I can take with me for catching spiny lobster.

Any help and suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks

Re: Fishing in Green Turtle Cay waters

No practical advice, but I've read

http://www.amazon.com/Cruisers-Handb...ide+to+fishing

and it's pretty detailed.

However, somebody will probably chime in with experience. Also, make sure to check the area for Ciguatera in the reef fish. Some say North of X, don't eat the reef fish, but I don't know exactly where that is yet.

Thanks I will check it out. I have read that there is some Ciguatera in this area of the bahamas but can be avoided by not eating larger fish.
