Default Trolling for Kings

I would like to try trolling for Kings off the beaches near Pensacola. Have spent a decent amount of time doing research but still have some questions.

What rod and reel setups are best? Spinning vs conventional? Is braid fine?

For trolling with Mann’s stretch 25s, do you need a wire or thick mono leader or can you tie the main line directly to the lure? With those lures, I’m guessing I don’t need a planer or trolling weight?

For trolling live or dead weight, is it best on top or with a planer/weight? I will Have live pinfish or frozen menhaden, can I use those? Would it be best to stop by a buoy in the pass and use a sabiki to get some live bait?

Appreciate the help
