I’m on the cape till Saturday and I’m wanting to catch some sharks 4-7ft so nothing crazy I can Cast fairly well or kayak bait out if I need to but my reels only got 500 yards of line on them so if something goes for a run I wouldn’t want to get spoiled cause I dropped bait to far out, lost one shark earlier this week and last year caught about a 6.5 bull at Indian pass. So my question is has anyone been having any luck around here lately and if so where, bait, how far out, etc

Not lately, but years ago, I use to fish the bay side of the Cape with Lady fish and mullet. I always used spinning gear and most of the time fished from the primitive camp areas on the cape. Most of the time I fished in 3-5' of water. The bite was consistent.

The last few times I fished Crooked Island(just west of you), I was seeing lots of black tips along the beach. I had my 706 with a circle hook to pitch a live bait to tarpon and I ended up throwing a ladyfish to a 5' black tip. They tend to run down the beach and not so much away from the beach.

I would say your current setup is fine.
