I think those are good choices...

make sure you get 4" tubes...they work really well worked slowly on the bottom...

Also...Jig and Pig is a classic for freshwater...

For freshwater I need to stock up on Gulp! worms, Zulu's, and Z-Too's. Havent done that yet. Might pick up a few more new Buzzbaits too.

Saltwater...hmmm, I dont know what I need. More than likely need to replenish my soft plastics supply. Other than that, I have about 9 million things, and I only use 10% of it all lol

Knuckleheads come in 5/8 (4") and 1.5 oz. (5"), plus they released a new larger version too recently.

Tha Knuckleheads cast like poop. BUT, I have not used their new large size which is made supposedly for surfcasting. It may cast a bit better due solely to its size and weight. But the other 2 sizes really dont cast too well.

I wouldn't leave the house without one. I love the blue and white one. 7/8 and 1 1/4 oz. I like the red and yellow too. I have been using then for 45 years.
