I have around $80 for bass pro to buy lures ,baits and terminal tackle with. So the question is , what should I buy?

Depends on what you have.  If I had a choice I would split it 50/50 between power and finesse.

 

Power - Spinnerbaits, Crankbaits, Jerkbaits

Finesse - Bullet weights, drop shot weights, good quality (Seaguar Invizx) FC line, Drop shot lures (Dream Shot, Z Drop, Roboworm)

Depends on what you have.  

Exactly and what techniques do you enjoy doing? I'd put the money towards restocking the essentials. If you fish plastics a lot get weights, hooks and plastics.. If you crankbait fish a lot get cranks. If you Jig fish a lot stock up on jigs and trailers, etc etc.. Whatever you are low on make sure you restock those supplies. 

 

Line is also another good thing to have plenty of.

I have plenty of line . I have quite a few lipless cranks , few spinnerbaits ,no more jigs, a few plastics. My stock in baits went down a lot from taking family members fishing and always getting hung up.

$80 can go a long ways at BPS, especially at the Spring Classic. Sounds like jigs are a need, plastics (you can experiment with brands) and perhaps terminal tackle -- sinkers, hooks, etc.

Definitely go in with a plan!

That's why I was looking for suggestions. So many choices and I'm going to try senkos this year. I have a few small lakes full of 3-5lbers.

Are all of these items available at Bass Pro?

If you're limited to BPS, I'd go for stuff that you normally wouldn't buy, and would splurge on stuff that you normally wouldn't consider because of price.

$80 isn't enough to buy a combo that I would recommend so I would buy some swimbaits, Lucky Crafts, real Senkos, or baits that I would otherwise not try due to their price.

My last BPS order included some Scumfrogs, Rage Anacondas, Rage Thumpers, Slug-Os, bullet weights, worm hooks, etc. Stuff like that, it really depends on what you need to add to your "angling arsenal"...

I don't need a combo. I'm buying a reel and I already have a rod. And I have around $85 for lures and tackle.
