What do I need for fishing off the beach in Florida?

I just moved to west Palm beach Fl and am looking to start shore fishing. What do I need for equipment (rod/reel, bait, tackle and whatever else) to get started? I am looking to keep it pretty basic and, don’t want to spend too much money. Just something decent. Also, what type of fish am I looking to catch. I was told there are bluefish here. Thanks

I just bought an 11ft fishing rod to fish off the beach. My rig keeps snapping.?

Im using a fish finder rig with a 6oz sinker, which works great off the surf with smaller rods. Its weird, using monofilament and it seems to just fray and shred and snap about 10 inches from the hook. Why is this happening? The line keeps doing this. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
