I've always wanted to do a skiff trip since I was a kid, and I finally booked one. I know things have changed with the way folks fish bass on these trips and I've got seven months to get prepared so I figured I'd throw this out here now. I feel pretty confident about my rods and reels for the big boat, but I want to make the most of my time in the skiff. I plan on bringing some backup reels because doing good work can put the lighter stuff with heavy braid out of commission. I also plan on bringing some extra shimano ARBs in case I kill some. I fish local bass on my skiff with my friends and maintain the gear and the boat, but I don't want to be a kook on this trip, so any suggestions for helpful gear would really be appreciated. I really want to enjoy this time off. So far my rod/reel list is: Graphite USA 85 Mag/300ej (with spare reel)-(65 braid) Graphite USA 85 Mega Mag/ct400s-(65 braid) Shikari 909H/tn14 (65 braid) Calstar 100j/Torium 16-65 braid (light jig stick) Calstar 90j/Newell 332-5 (with spare reel)-40 mono (jig stick) Truline D8/Newell 332-3.6 (straight 30 mono) Calstar 870-H/PG545 (kelp cutter 65 braid) Calstar 700H/Narrow Tiburon Newell 500-4.6 series (yoyo straight 50 mono) Calstar 610/4/0 topless YTS (flyline straight 40 mono) Truline TNT/4/0 topless (dropper loop straight 60 mono) I know I'm nitpicking but I want to be ready by February and test the gear on my skiff before the trip. Any advice is really welcome. I can build the rods and reels so it's more of an issue of prep time than money. Also, how much plastic will I actually burn through? Thanks in advance.
