Best baits/techniques for my rod?

I've got a 9'6", medium power, moderate action drifting rod. Itwas specifically designed for drifting eggs, but what other things would it be good for?

I fish for Trout of all kinds and sizes, Largemouths, Smallmouths, Bullhead Catfish, Channel Cats, Green Sunfish, Bluegill, Carp, and in the near future, Stripers.
