Pretty good list. Would trade out the chatter bait/Rattletrap for a Rapala or similar type minnow lure. More versatile for bass, trout, etc. Also would add Mepps or Rooster Tail in-line spinners. Great for trout, panfish, etc. Also add some small bucktail jigs. Jigs will catch anything that swims, plus you can attach bait to them. For the 8lb. mono, go with Berkeley Big Game. Good luck!

Personally would go with about 15 lb test for bass especially if pulling out from stumps, submerged logs, etc. Just started Carolina rigging green lizard rubber baits (darker green with sparkles) - bass act like it's the first time they have ever eaten

Add a utility hand towel, a good pair of needle nosed pliers with a good side cutter and a landing net of some sort with a long handle.

its a decent list. but I find I enjoy fly fishing more than any other. its also very productive way to fish and you learn a lot about biology as well

List is OK for bass. For trout, I'd add this:

Good pair of waders.
Polarized sun glasses.
Quality net.
Arctic Creel --- dip it in water to keep fish cool, no stringer to drag behind when wading.
An extra spool for your reel, with 4lb... Berkley XL is good but any quality line will do.
I use 2lb test leader and snell my own hooks, usually size 12. Trout are leader shy and the lighter the line the better. You can't beat these for commercially snelled hooks... strong, light and good quality hook ===> Gamakatsu sized 12 gold snelled salmon egg hooks
Use as little weight as needed to get your bait down using worms, corn, wax worms, salmon eggs, etc. A single BB will usually do it. Sometimes I don't use a weight at all... just a small snap swivel. Again, the lighter weight, the more natural the drift.

If you use power bait (I like yellow gold flake) then slide a small (1/8 oz) barrel sinker through your line, tie that to a snap swivel, attach a snelled hook to that and attach a small ball of power bait. The fish will grab and swallow it and not feel the pressure of your weight dragging. Light leader is a must... 2lb is best, no bigger than 4lb.

Good luck.

A days catch for my buddy and I using the power bait setup I mentioned above. All rainbows were in the 20-24" range. These were caught in east TN in the Watauga River. Trout fishing there is simply superb. We usually catch and release but he was having a giant family fish fry... they loved those fish.
