How often does one need to rinse freshwater tackle off after fishing in saltwater bodies of water?

I’m going on a vacation to Florida and plan on trying to do a little offshore fishing with my freshwater tackle. I understand I need to rinse the saltwater off to prevent corrosion, but I’m not sure how often. Do I need to rinse after every time out (I may be fishing nine to ten different times throughout the vacation) or is it just a once after the vacation thing? Also, how does one rinse all of the saltwater off of the reel? Thanks in advance! Any information helps as this is my first time fishing in saltwater.

I was aked to leave the Bass Pro shop after testing a rod n reel combo and a lure in their open aquarium?

There is no sign saying no fishing and it was too tempting.
One guy came over saying I can’t do that in the store and the 3 other guys rushed over to remove me. Can I give them trouble for harassment or anything?

When fishing, how long should you wait after the fish first bites to try and reel it in?

I have been fishing a few times now. Sometimes when I feel a fish biting, I reel in too soon and it goes away. Is there anyway to make sure that the fish is caught on the hook and when should I start trying to reel it in after I feel the bite?
I go fishing in a river with live worms.

What is the best way to rinse a fishing reel after using it in the saltwater?

I have heard a few different ways of doing this. Just want to hear some more ways of doing this.
I know that if you have a reel that is rated for saltwater use it is still recommended to rinse it off after using it in the saltwater. I talked to a few people who said that their expensive saltwater rated reel still got corrosion from using the reel for what it was made for saltwater fishing.
