Depends man. What are you gonna focus on this year?. Weedy lakes and ponds or clear Rocky rivers? Something inbetween? You prefer plastics ? Hard baits?

Take your time, look through each aisle, and find what YOU think will work for the areas and types of fishing that you prefer. Asking thousands of people will only confuse things.

I would agree with this but everytime I look through the aisles. I end up being there for like 4-5 hours.

For bodies of water i fish its really all over the place, rocky river(susquehanna in PA), grassy and shallow, deep and rocky, staned, clear, you name it.  Ido fish more with soft plastics but spend a good chunk of time with hard baits as well.  Funny enough, talonman, the dt4 in both of those colors are on my list.  Here in PA we dont really have much shad in our waters so bluegill and perch type colors make more sense for me.  As for things i need to expand on i dont have much experience with swimbaits so they are something i dont really know what to look for.

Only thing I could suggest is, learn another technique.  Get what you need  to apply that technique.  I always try a new one every year.

X2! Pick up a new bait and don't put it down until you have complete confidence in how and when to use it.

At least once a week that's our date night......grab some supper out...usually BBQ but could be steak......then over to BPS and walk all the aisles......at least boating and fishing aisles. Usually 2 or 3 times a week after fishing when the weather warms up.

not the best pictures but it gives the idea.  2 bps bionic plus baitcasters(6.3:1, 7.0:1), bps viper spinning reel, bps tourney special spinning rod 6' M(not pictured), 2 reel covers, 2 rod socks, a pack of rod wraps, spooling station, jig eye cleaner, braid scissors, 3 spools of various line, 12 various crank baits, 2 spinner baits, 2 buzzbaits, 15 bags of various soft plastics, 1 booyah pad crasher jr, 7 jigs, and 3 sizes of bullet sinkers.  im pretty sure thats it unless i just missed something.  as it was my first trip ever to bass pro it was a little overwhelming but man was it fun.  cant wait to do it again!
