I'm not sure what it is exatl you are asking, but if your wanting lure recommendations.....
A small topwater such as a Spook Jr. or Rapala Skitterwalk in bone and pink. 1/4 oz weedless gold spoon. A shrimp, such as the DOA 3", for sight casting to reds. Paddle tail soft plastic lures with 1/16 oz jighead, color depends on clarity but plum/chartreuse, pumpkinseed/chartreuse, and chicken on a chain. Troutsupport Grass Walker in Bone Diamond and Chicken on a Chain.
Store hard baits in a plano tackle box and I keep soft plastics in their original packaging.
Fish go on a stringer until I reach a stopping point or lull in the action then I move them into a cheap soft sided cooler (from Walmart) with ice which I store in my front hatch.
