Default Bass fishing tackle (going to start doing a little bass fishing)

I have been fishing walleye for years and have most of what I need to do that. I wanted to learn a little about bass fishing and start to target bass. Other than rods and reels what should every Colorado bass fisherman have? I went fishing the other day and worked a few senkos, cranks and drop shot rigs on a local lake and had a great time. ended up with about 12 bass and want to get together a bass bag.

What should I have in that bag?

Thanks
JT

Exactly what you just mentioned. Throw some craw colored tube jigs and a few jerkbaits of various types like x raps.... And you got a winning combo.

Sounds like you've got a pretty good grasp already - and if you're a walleye guy, it's about to be prime time for them!

My personal favorites are jig n pigs, tubes, senkos, various crank baits and lipless crankbaits.

If you snagged 12 bass this afternoon, you're doing fine though

I did ok but I just copied what the guy in front of the boat was doing. Now I just need to learn when and where to do each technique.

If you can find em Culprit worms kill bass here. And dont forget topwater poppers for that early morning or late evening bite. When all is calm there aint much better than watching a bass explode on a topwater.
Jig n Pig for midday structure fishin.
Big willow leaf spinnerbaits. Match the color to dominant bait source in the lake.
husky jerks for smallies hard to beat. If you know how and when to use em.
Looks like you gotta good start. Now go back out there with a topwater tonight and have a real blast!
