There is another thread for this in the Tackle section.

But yes, offer to pay for at least half of the gas. Some clubs have rules for this also, check your bylaws.

As for equipment, usually 4-5 rods is not an issue, talk to your boater to make sure. I usually carry 4-5 with one tackle bag with 5 plano 3700 boxes. Don't forget proper clothes, rain gear, culling system makes life easier also.

The rest is just respecting the guys boat, be mindful of hooks so you don't mess up seats, try to keep food/drinks to something with won't stain things, be ready to go when the boater says he is moving.......
