How many rods?

Recommended Posts

6ish

I start my rod selection at 6.  Finesse/Plastic, Crankbait, Swimbait, Topwater, All-Purpose and Spinnerbait.  If I plan to do a lot of a certain thing, I will add a couple more rods that I like for that.  Somedays I know I am going to be fishing several topwater baits so I bring a couple more rods for that purpose.  Some days I know I won't fish a technique at all and then I don't take a rod for that.  But typically I am bringing 5-7 rods with.

Ten.  Seven baitcasters and 3 spinning.

Unless your fishing tournaments, or perhaps running a bass boat with rod lockers anything more then 4 is a waste, and sometimes, 3 out of 4 sit in the rodholders.

A friend I wish with is a tournament angler, and I've seen 4 to 6 rods on his boat, and that dude can put fish in the livewell, staright up.

For an average 3 hour stay at the pond (5-6 rods):

2-4 on the bank

2-4 in the car (not far from the bank)

3-4 left at home

a couple in the I no longer need these pile

I have more than I need, but it's fun :)

4, I fish in a kayak and more than that just get in the way. Usually not the same 4, it is based on where I am fishing and what baits I am throwing.

I've found that having any more than three in the 'yak at any given time just cuases more aggravation than anything else.

I'm in the collecting stage. I'm at 6 casting 2 spinning, eventually I'd like to have 7 casting 3 spinning. But most likely would never take all ten to a tournament as a non-boater. Before the tournament I talk to the boater and see what he'll be fishing then i usually TRY to limit my self to 6ish.

When i'm out in my 12 footer ill bring 4 tops

Fishing from the bank I will have 4 in the car and will take two with me - one in my hand and one stuck in my belt behind my back.

Fishing from the canoe - I will have 4, 5 max (don't have any more room!).

I don't have a boat unfortunately. When wading, 1 rod, walking the bank 2 rods, as a ride along on another boat, 4 or 5.

usually 6 on deck (4 casting, 2 spinning)

another 6 in the locker (3 casting 3 spinning, these get used about 20 % of the time as loaners or when I didn't plan to use a specific technique that day.

Oh, and I got room for more!  let's see...where's that flea market link again? ...click! ;):)

2-3 and I'm fishing from the shore/bank.

One for Cranks and treble hook lures.

One for anything else and both spinning.

One Baitcaster also for anything heavier.
