I’m leaving on a 6 day Sunday and bringing 10 rods and one SKB. I’m ready for paddy fish, Lupe YFT and bluefin.
I would agree except for when there is no good place (or any place) to put your rods or tackle box other than to scatter your own stuff all over the boat.It would be physically impossible for me to give less of a fuck what other people bring or don’t bring on the trip they paid for.
Those are two separate issues. The problem you stated in your post does not arise from the amount of gear one brings, but rather from individuals who are inconsiderate in regards to where they place/store their gear.I would agree except for when there is no good place (or any place) to put your rods or tackle box other than to scatter your own stuff all over the boat.
On an offshore trip targeting BFT? Two of each is plenty. A YT trip? 3 surface irons and 2 yoyo Iron. I’m pretty much packed up for my Cedros trip at the end of Aug and it would all just about fit in a 12 oz can.I'd love to reduce the amount of gear I bring but can't figure out how many jigs, snipers, and flat falls is enough?
How FUCKING DARE you enjoy your fishing trip in the manner you deem fit! THE NERVE YOU HAVE!You don't want me to be on any of your trips..that is for sure- .
hmm for a 1-3 day with known possibilites of larger fish..
2 popping specific Spinning stella rods. (1 for small to medium and 1 for big only)
2-3 jigging specific rods. (1 PE4 1 PE7 and 1 PE10(if biggies are going to be around)
1 surface iron specific rod (YT or colt sniper type)
bait out fits from 20-100 (usually bring 1 25 lb kelp small stuff rod, 30, 40, 50, 60 and 80/100
and a kite outfit because the boats kits outfits are beat to shit usually.
no less than 50 jigs 10 surface iron and 10 poppers. and that is for any trip.
Multiples of all of my favorite jigs. must have 3x of my go to's..
may I not use most of them- YES
but if I Ido and it's home... well that sucks.
Cleaning it up afterwards- I don't dig it but the :
not having it is > >>than not having to sort it later (for me)
I bought the Intex Camping Flocked Pillow and use 2 of those and are great. They are inflatables. It's about 18" wide.I’ll be glad when that silly rule goes away. More than 50% of my backpack is bedding, and I went to REI ( Sorry BillW, that’s what it is named ), and got the smallest bedding and pillow I could get.
FYI guys. I think the bedding has gone away for all the boats. Just got off a 6 day on the Vagabond ( Lupe trip) and we did not have to bring pillow and blanket. Both provided. But a couple of trips I took the first 2 weeks of July I had to bring both and that meant taking another small duffle bag. VERY GLAD to not have another bag now for this.I’ll be glad when that silly rule goes away.
