Was trying to organize my tackle the other night in my garage and was thinking if i could only have 5 lures for the rest of my life when i went saltwater fishing what would they be?

-Gold spoon
-any kind of 'roach' colored plastic(TTK or Sand Eel most likely)
-DOA shrimp in any color
-Bone colored Spook
-any lighter colored plastic like bone or chartreuse(TTK or Sand Eel most likely)

so what would yours be?

Undoubtedly I wouldn't be able to choose just 5...which is why I have 4 tackleboxes.

- gold spoon
- silver spoon
- inline spinner w/tail
- tandem rig (spec rig, cocahoe rig)
- light color topwater

I have an old article that proposed the following lures as the top 10 of all time. I'll have to dig it up and list them.

Would love to read that Bombay. Been trying to simplify my tackle repertoire for a while but you know how that goes...

My pleasure, but it covers fresh and salt...so opinions from the board are more relevant for the task at hand. Nonetheless, I'll try to get it into a format in which I can paste a link. It is interesting.

Here are the five I always seem to have to replace due to either breakoffs or wearing out from catching fish.

*for saltwater bay fishing*

- Gold or Silver spoon
- TT-28 Mirror Lure
- Strawberry tout with pearl tail
- light colored topwater
- Speck Rig (short - yellow / long - white)

*for inshore flyfishing*
- Clouser minnow
- deer hair crab
- grass shrimp
- white popper
- Pet spoon

GCB...Just picked up 20 new Prototype's today...

Actually Mr. Brown gave them to the wife.They are gonna be some Hog Slayers.

You tell me what you want, and I will make sure you get them.

I am down to around 200 right now...But, it's time to get the Fall/Winter Stock up.

I will be going by there once a week until I get all the Patterns I asked for.

Pearl/Chartreuse are the colors for your area.

I am planning on fishing the little bay more this winter.

I got into the Tripletails there 2 weekend ago.

It looked like an Aquarium where we found them.

Also caught a Ling so close inshore, we could see the sand.
