Preparing for “anything” that a new lake can throw your way is very challenging. If you specifically select baits that have multiple uses it is much easier to be prepared for varying conditions. From clean water to murky, from a topwater bite to ledge fishing, you can get away with less tackle than you might expect.

Below is a break down of all the gear Tim took to Michigan to chase Smallmouth on lakes he’d never seen before. They’re broken into Finesse/Spinning Gear and Reaction/Casting Gear.
