Default Cooler or Stringer

I'll arrive in Santa Rosa Beach tomorrow and plan to fish while we are there through Sunday. Trying to limit the amount of gear I need. From what I understand you can't leave anything on the beach overnight there, so we will have to haul everything back each evening.

I used a cooler my last two trips, but thought about just using a stringer this time. I've never used one before, so any suggestions would be great. Should I even fool with it or just use a cooler?

Crabs, sharks, etc will eat all your fish on the stringer. Cooler all the way

cooler...the quality of your fish will be 10x better if iced immediately.

If you can bring lots of ice and make a salt water slurry. Your fish will be even batter

That water is + 85 degrees.
Your (dead) fish will 'spoil' in just a few hours soaking in that tepid bath...
