Just curious this topic was discussed on another website and got a lot of response. How many rod setups do you guys carry on the boat with you during the spring thru fall season. And what you have tied on them most of the time.
I also keep several with me. I don't have the boat space to keep that many, but I try to have some variety, depending on what the fish are wanting. Like Postalbass, It's better when you know what the fish are wanting, then you can take a couple of rods. I usually have 4 during the winter.
All depends, in my boat I generally have four or five rigged up and ready to go. In buddy's Lake Erie boat depending on how many people (usually four) we have on board there can be as many as twenty rods rigged and ready. If we're trolling for walleye we'll run two rods a man, that's a eight rod spread
talk about a chinese fire drill, get's pretty funny sometimes when we run a school and get two or three hook ups at one time.
Now a few times I have purposely left all the rods and extra tackle except for one rod and a few baits out of my boat so as not to not be distracted into fishing for something else, this usually happens when I hunt for muskies.
10 to 12 if I am C rigging I might have 4 rigged the same so if I break off I can change out and pick up one and keep fishing same way when worm fishing if not, spinnerbait, crankbait deep mid, shallow, worm, drop shoot, C-rig, pop-R, fluke.
