Others may have different things they use but I would stand behind these 5 products. Excellent items. How many do you have?

Replace the boom box with some forcep/scissors and I won't argue.

I have the same grippers, love them, but I attached mine to the boat with a caribeaner and paddle leash. I actually caught a carp back in the spring that I literally could not pick up out of the water and into the yak without flipping it. As i was trying to get to the bank to get him weighed and measured and a photo, i lost him without any of them. So now if I need to drag something in, I can. I was sick, I estimated him at better than 25 lbs and I landed him on a 6wt. By far the largest fish I have ever caught on a fly.

I have regular line nippers with the nail knot tool, though I never use it anymore, but just in case.

I have a folding measuring stick with the florida limits marked and bag limits on the back. It stores easily.

Needle nose pliers and hemostats.

Lifeproof case for the Iphone with the beltclip should I want music, but never listen to it, just use it for photos and gps when needed.

The newest addition that I can't say enough about is the GoPro camera and telescoping paint roller handle that allows me to mount it in a rod holder.

I am seriously considering the GearTrak from Yakattack along with their visipole for night fishing and their panfish camera mount. I would be interested in hearing anyones review on the geartrak if they have used it.

I will have a stake out pole before Grand Isle, it seems to be much simpler than an anchor when it will work.

I'm going a little more basic.
1) paddle
2) PFD (it's the law)
3) Fishing rod of your choice (with lure of choice attached)
4) long skinny needle nose pliers (for the sake of the fish)
5) drinking water

Most everything else is optional. I've found that the simpler I get with my gear, the more I seem to relish the experience.
