406 EPIRB, 4 X 1L water bottles, several space blankets, cheap plastic tarp and a stickless kite with stong line seperate from your fishing line. Kites are cheap and much easier to spot than something floating on the surface.

This is assuming you are still in your boat ie engine break down, or 'nearly worst case' and stuck in a life raft?

I've spent ages cruising back and forth looking for fishing net bouys I KNEW had to be here some place only to discover I had passed them a couple of times already without seeing them. The ocean is a funny place.

You can't beat a unopened bag of GULP shrimp thrown in. Will catch anything that swims and is easily stored and won't go bad.

Think bottom fishing, its the most reliable and productive fishing for anywhere, and requires the least gas/bait/resources/planning. I've been fishing since a child, on saltwater, born and raised in Charleston vacationing at a river-house on the salt marshes.
Trust the Warrior!
You won't be catching prize gamefish, or 125lb-ers, but that's not the goal. Ask around your projected locality or where you'll be on the open-water about what species live on the bottom, and gear up for that. Bag-baits can last as long as any of your Dh foods, and will get you started until you can catch bait. Saltwater you WILL eventually need bait, and a way to continue catching whatever that bait is, that is the most important thing, unless you are planning to trap something which isn't a bad idea either, if you know what you're doing.

As for rigging, kinda depends on what kinda salt water depth/current/inland/open etc.. but keep it simple. And you'll do much better long term stocking the components to build your rigging than keeping rigs.. IMO.

One last thing, thing overbuilding too. Steel leaders for 5lb fish heck ya.. why risk it. A 3ft shark takes your Pompano-shrimp rig and you starve. No thanks lol.
Honestly I'd fish for shark most of the time, easy to catch, great meat and you can use anything that bleeds for bait, including the last shark carcass you just cut up.

Hand lines with 80- 150 pound line. Learn how to tie paternoster rigs with a snapper sinker rigged at the bottom.

Cast net is a must, that gets all your bait and catches a huge amount of food.
10 foot dia, should suffice.

Four hand lines and a cast net with a fishing knife and terminal tackle should all fit in a 20 litre bucket ready to go.

Really need more information on what exactly your situation would be. Are you on a sandy beach in the surf are you on a rocky cost line are you on a boat are you fishing from a Kayak? Are you in temperate waters or are you in more tropical like waters?

Gill nets w/weights and floats
Cast nets
Dip net
Gaff
Fish billy club
50# braided line
100# braided line
Six kite string winders for the braided line or regular hand line reels
Steel leaders
Plenty of hooks of different varieties, several weights, and some floats
Fish scaler
Filet knife
Raft knife
Make sure everything is well secured to the boat/raft

Just my opinion.

I have caught quite a few crabs with nothing more than an onion sack weighed down with rocks and filled with some old chicken carcasses. The crabs try and reach through the onion sack to get to the chicken carcass in their claws get tangled up

Couple of squid jigs
wine bottle cork for securing loose hooks
triple antibiotic ointment and band aides
also every tackle box either fresh or salt water should have the old tried and true Red Dare devil lure.
good filet knife and a scalier.
