Rod/Reel/Line setup for Lake Nippising

I am heading to Lake Nippising in early August. I currently have two 6’6” medium action rods with 2500 sized reels. I am planning to target small mouth, pike, walleye, and want to be prepared for Muskie. I am looking to add a third rod/reel for the trip and am looking for suggestions and also a line setup. Thanks in advance for suggestions.

I saw you post this and just after that I went fishing for a week. I'm surprised no one responded.

I'll try to offer some advice but I'll need to know the size and weight of the lures you will be using. The rod and line weight needed will be dictated by the lures your using.

In most cases I keep a MH bass rod with the appropriate line weight handy. It will handle pike and musky if used carefully.

If I'm targeting big pike and musky I go heavy with everything because I'm using big lures that require heavy gear not because the fish are big.
