Bass rod, bait rod, jigstick.
The answer: 1
Penn Fathom 25N with a 7'6" or 8' MH rod.
I usually bring 3-4 setups depending on trip length
(1) 20# 8' graftec 800m progear 255 (surface bait/swim baits)
(2) 30# 8.5' calstar 220c progear 251 (surface bait/light iron)
(3) 40# calstar 900H penn fathom 25N (surface irons/dropper loop)
3/4-overnight all of above +
(4) 30# calstar 800m progear 251 or progear 545 (utility rig surface irons, surface bait , drooper loop, flat falls,etc)
Usually 4 but this season 5 since anchovies are always in the baitwell.
Depends on the fishing you do. On a private boat I have:
5 trolling rods/reel - lever drag TLD's and Fin Nors. Some 80lb rods, some 20-50lb depending on jig used. All rigged with straight 40lb mono.
1 9' jig stik with Lexa 300
1 8' heavy rod with big ass spinner for casting to big ass tuna
5 Medium action Ugly Stiks for live bait. Two with spinners (for people not used to conventional), three with conventional. These are used at Cat, locally, and off paddies mostly.
2 spear guns. 1 for open water paddy hunting and one for kelps and reef
I would like one dedicated to sabiki as well. Other than that I feel like I have my bases covered.
I'm loving everyone's suggestions and setups. Kind of lets people know a little bit about your own personal fishing style and what your arsenal looks like.
