    I'm trying to get my tackle all set up for my Rend Lake fishing trip. I have 12 3 oz., 4 4 oz. and 3 5 oz. pyramid weights and about 10 each of #4 and #5 circle hooks. Also have quite a few of 2 oz. band sinkers---any suggestions on what other hooks or weights would be good for a 2 day trip. I figure I'll be mainly catching channels but I've heard that Rend has some flats and blues so I'd like to be prepared for a chance to catch one.
