I have been wanting to post a list of gear that I have been using and how I use them for a while now. Finally getting around to it. This is just going to be a list of my spin fishing gear, the fly fishing gear will be in the next gear post. So let's get started.I have several spin fishing rods that I have accumulated over the years of fishing. Even with all those rods, I have my go to rods that I've been using for my Bass adventures lately.

So that is a list of my go to spin fishing gear as of lately. It's been producing a lot of results.
I've been rigging the worms weightless and weedless. I toss it out and let it sink to the bottom. Then I give a couple of quick jerks and let it sink back to the bottom and repeat and so on. This really produces a lot of fish for me. However, they seem to be a little smaller than the ones I get on the frogs lately.
The Spro frog I use a couple of different techniques. I cast it out and on the retrieve I either "walk the dog" or work it almost like a popper. A couple good tugs and let it sit for a few seconds, give it a twitch and a couple more tugs. The Spro seems to bring out the biggest fish for me. The Snagproof frogs I only work as I would poppers.
I also carry an ever changing and random assortment of swim baits.
Random gear list
I always have my head lamp on me when I'm fishing just in case. I have the Petzl Tikka Plus. It's been with me for several years now. They really take a lickin'. I've never had a problem with it other than being to forgetful to change the batteries regularly.
I always have a pair of needle nose pliers with. Ya never know when you'll need them to unstick that hook.
I have a scale with me as of lately.
Polarized sunglasses are a must!! Spend some money on some good glasses. They say it makes a difference. So when you go out and buy some, let me know if it does lol I always buy the $5 sunglasses from walmart.
I always have my weather radio on me. A poncho, small first aid kit, good hiking shoes, fishing hat and SEVERAL POCKET KNIVES. I don't know why, or when that started.
Here are some pictures,
