The basic gear I use
Matrix Shad soft plastics are deadly on Speckled Trout, Red Fish and Flouder. Check out their Web site. http://matrixshad.com
Lew's TS1SMG Speed Spool. This is my go to reel. It comes with a fully adjustable magnetic braking system that allows me to cast 1/8 OZ jig heads with ease.
The dual head Led light from Paddle Punks is what I use for flounder gigging. http://www.paddlepunks.com/WooHoo_Floundering_Light_p/wh-001.htm
My design of a wading fish and bait bucket. The top unscrews to remove your catch. I attached a small tackle box just to keep a few items handy while wading.
This is some of my basic most used tackle, day in - day out. I've got tons of gear. Big reels, crappie rods, shark reels, cast nets, you name it I've prolly had it at one time or another. But this is what I count on when it's all on the line.
