Default Sea trout set-up?

Hey guys, couple of questions to ask.

Our house in florida is in bonita springs,

Just by dumb luck and experimentation i have found a good spot where the imperial river goes into the ocean, and found some decent 16-20" fish available. I'm fishing an 8 weight with a saltwater sink tip line and seem to do alright. I was fishing a river/estuary, but this was in march. There was also some spanish mackerel hanging around that i was having some fun with.

Now that we're having a family christmas in florida, im just wondering what should i be doing for december? I plan to fish hard every morning during the incoming or out going tide.

Will the fish have moved out? Or will they still be there? What about reds? Will they move into that area in the winter, or what should i be looking for. There's also plenty of beach to fish as well. What is suitable for leader? They have a some fangs, so im just wondering if i need a bite leader, or can i get away with straight 15lb mono.

Thanks in advance guys, just another noob looking for answers!
