What do I need for a basic tackle box for panfishing?
I have been fishing a few times but always used other people’s equipment. However, I recently went to Wal-Mart and purchased a rod and reel, round container of hooks, round container of split shot weights, and a 6 pack of bobbers.
I fish in the morning from 7:30-11:00 or at night from 6:00-8:30 in a small (55 acre) lake in WV. I mostly catch bluegill, sunfish, and yellow perch. There are the occasional catfish when I drag along the bottom, and some small and large mouth bass.
I usually just fish with live worms from Wal-Mart but I’m wanting to start a tackle box with some artificial lures. Can anyone give me some ideas what types of baits and lures to fill my tackle box with? If you could give me some links to places online where I can buy them it would be great too.
