Which plugs LIVE in your plug bag?

Curious to know (and see the difference) which plugs you always keep with you? Obviously the scenario might dictate whether you bring specific plugs or not, but personally there are some that are kept with me no matter what, and I can’t be the only one.
 

I’ll go first….

 

- Lil Doc - 7” spook in bone

- SP minnow original size in Floating, either blue Mack or chrome

- Loaded cotton Cordell Redfin 7” in bone

- 1oz white bucktail (preferably jecks) with a chartreuse colored curly tail grub

 

these are with me no matter the scenario

I've learned to always keep a 3oz tin.

 

It's saved me many times when the fish are just on the edge of casting range.

4.5” and 6” sluggo in arkansas shiner or similar colors, with 3/8, 1/2, and 3/4 oz jig heads in red and white. And a pack of 3/0 circles for use with sand fleas. All I use and all I need. Don’t need any hard baits or bucktails. If the sluggos don’t work, put on a flea. If the fleas don’t work, try the sluggo again. If neither work, give up for the day and go chunking and catch skates. That’s my line of thinking anyway.

I play around with colors depending on what's been working lately but I always have the following day or night (yes my bag gets heavy haha but I don't drive beaches and typically walk them so I bring what I can squeeze in):

 

Main area:

1) loaded redfin

2) sp minnow

3) danny metal lip (either rms or beachmaster or pappys typically)

4) spook (rms jigsmith typically)

5) popper (Polaris / little neck sinking style)

6) floating needle (steztko or rms typically)

7) sinking needle (afterhours typically)

 

Then I adjust from there and I can usually get another couple plugs in. 

 

Front pouch:

1) bucktails (hotlips, several sizes)

2) diamond jigs (several sizes)

3) hopkins (couple sizes)

4) jigheads w/ paddletails (couple sizes)

5) epoxy jig (couple sizes)

 

This doesn't change much at all and covers all the bases.
