Flourocarbon trace 1m plus. I am never shy with trace length.
Sliding sinker / no sinker
It all depends, where are you going to be fishing, from shore or from a boat AND how strong is the current (spring tide) etc. Grunter like to take a drifting bait, so as long as you have enough weight to get your bait to the drop off and let it drift down into the channel....you are golden!

i'll be staying at Pine Lake Marina, they do rent small boats so will give that a shot as well as from the shore.
