I'll throw in my opinion for you to consider while getting your tacke in order.. Don't go over board! From someone that been there and has more tackle then I could figure out how I mananged to aquire so much of it
I believe if you get on the horn and order yourself a free Cabellas/Bass Pro Shops catalog you'll be able to pick up all the tackle you'll neeed for under a few hundred bucks. Have fun shopping
PS. Gently used tackle, flea markets and fishing shows are also a good source.
