new gear

Recommended Posts

I have come to the conclusion i need new gear, and lots of it. I realized that since almost all of my boxes are rusty, and my bags are torn and worn. A lot of my lures are nasty with rust, weeds, and grit and grime. I am pretty much starting over here. I am going to get a new tackle bag, with new boxes, and take my best lures that are still in perfect condition, and buy new cranks, hooks, weights, jerkbaits, topwaters, etc. etc. Sounds like fun? Well, sounds expensive, but im sure it will all be worth it. Anyways, in my quest for the perfect tackle box, what lures (stick to hardbaits) do you believe are absoloutley necessary to a bass fishermans tackle arsenary? I have a healthy selection of spinnerbaits, jigs, and soft plastics, so leave those out in your posts. thanks....

Off the top of my head some MUST HAVE lures would include

LC Sammy

LC LV500max


LC pointers

Super spook jr.

smithwick rogues

RC crankbait

Lobina rico

wiggle wart cranks

bagley cranks

rapala dt series cranks

that should get you started with a quality tackle selection of hardbaits to cover the entire water column.

Good luck and have fun.
