In late April my wife and I are going to drive the length of the Baja Peninsula stopping to beach camp along the way. We are bringing kayaks and I'd like to do some fishing in the Sea Of Cortez out of my kayak. Could someone recommend what lb. test line would work as a starting point and would a medium action rod work OK? A recommendation of a few artificial baits would be appreciated as well. This will be my first attempt at salt water fishing and my expectations aren't high I just want to give it a try. My wife doesn't fish by the way. Thanks in advance for your responses!!!

First time? Dont sunk a lot of $$ until you know you like it

Get a used rod/reel, and cheap lures. Jigging for bottom fish is less about the lure and more about the technique.

For kayak fishing for bottom fish consider just jigging with a hand line.
If you catch a little fish, put him on weighted line with a hook, and let the live bait work its magic far superior to a lure.

Is there anything that you're not an expert on?
