New to angling. Catch and release. The dream - to catch at least one of every species in our great state (if I can manage to resist carp)!

What kind of girl is the prettiest? Highly subjective and largely dependent upon your intentions.

A 12" Crescent wrench. In addition to its obvious intended use, it can also be used as a hammer or a pry bar bolt

I prefer a bait casting reel for all applications, including drop shot and shakey head. Skipping docks is a little bit more difficult with this rig, but you CAN do it, but you better have an educated thumb. Hope this helps. Tight lines, keep safe and good luck.

Garcia, Shimano, Diawa, Quantam and Lews are pretty good but you can catch bass on Zebco too and they're a lot cheaper. stir

As others have pointed out, not a great way of thinking about reels, but I would venture to say that in Texas, a bait caster is used much more frequently than a spinning reel in bass fishing...

Wow... catching fish is not about equipment. It's all about holding your mouth right.
