    I just dock or bank fish, never far from truck. I keep a case of water in back, fillet knife, tackle bag, 3 more style of rods. As far as fishing 1 rod, cargo pants with the 5 or so baits I need for this dock,a bucket if Iím keeping fish. Thatís about it.

    I carry everything I can get in my truck. I fish with very few of those items. The rest stay in the truck. I take them to prove to my wife that I bought all that stuff because I really need it. I have noticed that I'm getting more tired every time I load or unload. I may have to give some away and tell her, it was donated to kids at the lake, so it was money well spent.

    What it comes down to are the reasons we fish and where we fish. For me it's about lure design and catching anything that swims. I don't need to fish 10 different lakes a year anymore unlike a bud of mine constantly emailing me shots of fish caught from that many different waters. 6 fish species in three local lakes is good enough for me because I can usually find fish in those waters that bite my lures and that offer different area types I can fish different ways.

    As for why and where I fish, a boat is #1. A boat requires many basics such as propulsion, sonar for depth changes, an anchor for wind, battery(s),seat(s) and other things.

    Fishing for bass and panfish require different lures and tackle; fishing from top to bottom requires a tackle box that stores them. Pliers, scissors and a file for hooks are basic tool.

    Pickerel, if present in a water, requires a net and jaw clamps to unhook them vs getting slashed by sharp teeth. I want to get a big fish into the boat as soon as possible too prevent lactic acid build up in the fish and to avoid losing my lure from the line breaking. A long handle net gets it done.

    You get the picture. To each his or her own when it comes to fishing and what's right for me, may be excessive to one who doesn't need 90 % of what I need because of how they fish, what they fish for and where they fish. But I do agree that duplicate lure types and carrying too many rods is redundant and without advantage. Less is best!

    Less is best IF you're only going to cast lures. If that's ALL I'm going to be doing that day, then a couple of rods/reels is sufficient. But, if there's a chance that casting isn't going to cut it, but some form of "trolling" procedure is what's needed, then two casting rods ain't gonna cut it ... so I'll take 4 long rods along. All my lures for either style of fishing & all the other items needed for either are contained in my tackle bag.

    But, to be sure ... if I was just out to catch "fish", then I'd take a couple of casting outfits & a handful of marabou Road Runners and play with whatever happens to bite. But, I'm after one specific fish 99% of the time ... Crappie ... so I utilize the equipment & methods that have proven to be geared towards them. I already catch plenty of other species while fishing for Crappie.

    I carry too much. Usually have 5 rods and I very seldom bank fish. Most tackle is in a 6 gallon milk crate that I put a lid on so it can be stood or sat on. Thereís standard gear in the boat that never comes out so itís always ready for an impulse trip. Some trips I only use one rod and the jig that was already tied on.

    You're a man after my own heart! Problem is it takes longer to check the checklist than go fishing! Can you imagine finding where to put all that stuff in a 10' V bottom or 12' flat bottom?!!
