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.

How to organize terminal tackle for surf fishing? What do you reccommend?

I want to go surf fishing but have no experience. We have a rod and some hooks etc but were not sure how to tie the best lure/tackle for the given conditions. The beach is a surf beach which has all kinds of fish out in the deep and it has an inlet where sharks often go to feed on smaller fish.
