Lures for Shimano Teramar SE Medium 7' Rod?

Okay so I made a list of my light tackle lures that I've amassed for this rod and 2019 season...
Has this become an obsession?!


Hard Lures:

- Bomber 16A Floating (7/8oz) in black/purple (for night) and orange-y bone type color (for day). Swimmers for just below the surface.

- Rebel Jumpin Minnow 4.5" bone color (1/2oz). Topwater splasher.

- Tsunami Talkin Popper 4" black/silver color (7/8oz). Topwater splasher for night.

- Storm Rattlin' Saltwater Chug Bug 3 1/4" in white/yellow color (3/8oz -- but wish I got the 1oz 4 3/4" version).

 


Bucktails:

- Kalin's Hand Tied Bucktail Jigs white color (1/4oz)
- S&S John Skinner Striped Bass bucktail in white color (1/2oz)

- Andrus Jetty Caster bucktail white color (3/4oz & 1oz)


 

Soft Baits/Jigheads:

- Tsunami Holographic Sand Eels 6" pre-rigged (3/4oz)

- Hogy Protail Paddle 3.5" bone pre-rigged (1oz) -- heaviest lure I have for this rod but it will be for deeper in water column off of my boat -- not planning on snapping a big cast with this one as it may overpower this rod.

- Hogy Original 7" (white, black) & weightless 6/0 Owner keeper hooks. Topwater. 

- Dark Matter "Fishaholic" Swim Shads w/ paddle tail (white, chartreuse) for Dan Tinman white shad jigheads in 3/8, 1/2, and 3/4oz weights

- DOA Cal 5.5" jerkbaits on DOA Premium chartreuse jigheads in 1/8 and 3/8oz weights in colors glow w/ chartreuse tail, black/purple, and stark naked (basically olive over silver)

 

I am going to focus on using the softbaits and bucktails this season. I can see myself not using 80% of these and just using the 1/2oz bucktails, DOA jerkbaits in glow color, and shads.

I plan to add the recommended Atom Striper Swiper in either 3/8oz or 7/8oz (or both!), maybe a tin or two like the Kastmaster 1/2oz w/ bucktail teaser single hook, a Hogy Epoxy Jig in 5/8oz. I may add a chartreuse color bucktail and maybe some pink/bubble gum plastics...

What else am I missing to round out the light tackle (sub 1oz) lure collection?

I hear you but I just don't want to have to buy stuff that won't work out. I've made a ton of progress already in this thread learning about what to use. How is this not the correct approach?

You're doing the right thing. You can learn a lot here. 

Al Gags makes some light paddle tail jigs that work.

Good luck..

Just a note, most people don't use pencil poppers at night, though I'm sure anything can work.
