Shore/kayak Fishing in Drake Bay

I'm headed to Drake Bay Jan 1 and was planning on taking my telescopic pole. (It's pretty heavy duty) I would really like some pointers as to what kind of lures and/or hooks to bring or bait to use. I'll be fishing from the shore or from a kayak. I've read rooster fish should be there, some snook and I'm not sure what else. Also, are there fish in the rivers accessible around there? We will be staying at Las Caletas for a week. Some general pointers or recommendations would be fantastic. Thanks!

I'm just looking for some information on what to bring to go out on my own, not to book a tour. Las Caletas, where we are staying has some sea kayaks we can also use.

VAtravelguy - Are you back yet? Would love to hear how your trip went and if the fishing worked out. We are headed down to Las Caletas in Feb and have the same questions you posted. We want to take our own gear and give the fishing a shot. I tried e-mail you directly, but I wasn't seeing any e-mail address for you....
