Early summer fishing in Treasure Island

I will be traveling to the Tampa area in late May. This will be the first time fishing any saltwater. I fish a lot here in Kansas, but really have many questions. Where to fish surf? What can be eaten? What can be kept? What should I bring that I already have, like any freshwater lures? I will fish the most in the AM. Last year I saw a few men fishing the waters between Treasure Island and the main land? Also any good bank fishing in fresh water. ANY answers would be a big deal. Thanks Ryan
