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

Where to collect fish and coral in the Florida Keys?

Hi, I’m traveling to the Florida Keys later on this month. First of all, let me start by saying that I do know the laws, regulations and requirements for collecting fish in Florida:
http://myfwc.com/docs/RulesRegulations/2009_July_RegsSummary_Newsletter.pdf (page 14)
So please, don’t tell me it is completely illegal, and cannot be done. I know what can and cannot be collected, furthermore I do know how to care for these creatures as I am an experienced hobbyist. My question again is: where would be a good place to collect these fish and coral in the Florida Keys.
Last few times I went to the keys I went snorkeling in Bahia Honda and there is plenty of marine life there, however according to their guide: http://www.floridastateparks.org/bahiahonda/docs/SnorkelinglGuide%20toMarineLifeofBahiaHonda.pdf
it says nothing can be taken from there, except for crab and lobster while they are in season.
I do not have the money at this time to afford a diving trip, so please, if you can, suggest a site that may be accessible by the beach like Bahia Honda is.
I really appreciate your help and expertise!
