what would YOU bring?

Recommended Posts

if you where fishing from the bank for the day what would you bring with you and what would you consider to much or too little?

i wanted to start this because a lot of guys don't have boats and can't bring all there equipment with them and are limited to what they can carry.

so tell everyone what you would bring: how many rods, what kind, tackle box or bag, what baits, and anything else let us know

I fished from the bank for 30 years and still do it ocassionally even though I own a boat:

1.- two rods ( 1 baitcasting, 1 spinning )

2.- a backpack,

3.- a 3700 box with an assortment of lures

4.- a spinnerbait binder ( large ) with an assortment of jigs, spinnerbaits and soft plastics,

5.- two small tackleboxes for sinkers, hooks, jigheads that fit in the pockets of the backpack

6.- a wearable cooler with 3 drink cans, a couple of sandwiches and other nutritious stuff.

I'd bring one baitcasting R&R with 10 lb test.Also,bring worm hooks,weights,5 bags of the most popular colored worms( or Senkos,if you prefer), a minnow floater diver,a prop bait,a pop-R type lure,a shad colored medium c-bait,a white spinnerbait ,a chartruse spinnerbait,and a white or chartruse buzzbait.This ought to cover you (although,someone will come up with some other things).This basic set of lures should fit in a pretty small tacklebox.

I do a lot of bank fishing at a variety of waters. I always bring just one rod/reel combo and too many lures. I have a couple of shoulder bags. One 3701 box for hard baits, a 3600 for soft jerkbaits, with one compartment for two buzzbaits, another 3600 box with assorted worms like Senkos, Kut Tails and Speed worms and a smaller box for a few tubes and jigs. A small box with four spinnerbaits goes in one of the bag's pockets. This is the same stuff I take with me for boat fishing, plus a couple more rods and reels and another utility box or two depending on where we're going.

I know for any given bank outing I have too much stuff, but I just don't feel right without a good assortment of stuff.

I went bank fishing today I brought two rods and two lures. One crankbait rod and a spinnerbait rod. Usually I just carry with me one rod and a hand full of lures. I generally know what kind of lake I am going to fish so I bring stuff that works for that depth or cover. Sometimes I just bring what I feel like fishing. If I have not rat fishing in awhile then thats what I take for example. If I am fishing a heavy weedy pond then I take a soft jerkbait, buzzbait, spinnerbait 1/4 oz, tube, floating worm, grass rat or a frog. Ponds that are a little more open or have some depth I take a 3/8 oz spinnerbait, jerkbait, crankbaits, rattletraps, spitt'n image shad topwater, and a creature bait. I just bring the right tools for the job.
