How many combos do you bring? One tackle box?

At most 5 but usually 3. I use to be the guy that brought 7 or 8 and only used 3 of them.

My tackle bag that I use to jump from boat to boat use to weight maybe 35 pounds. Now its down to 6-7 pounds and I almost never feel like I need something that aint in that bag.

Keep it to a minimum and your buddy will appreciate it. Chances are if your buddy is catching them on something you don't have he will be more than happy to share with you anyway. Catching fish puts people in a sharing mood. grin

Four or five rods. One tackle bag and one bag with lunch and drinks. I use a pack for my tackle. Works good.

3-5 depending on what we're doing. 4 would do the job 95% of the time.

All you need is one and a watermelon red trick worm rigged up Texas rig.. You can only fish with one rod at a time. I've caught more fish with one rod/reel and a soft plastic out of 12ft jon boat than I've ever caught out on my current rig and 10-15 combos! stir

Depends how long you've known him and fished with him/her. Case in point, I took 15 rods and 14 boxes to our last tournament we fished. Thankfully he has the room in his boat, and I used 12 of the rods.

Depends on how well u know him like BNKrust said. I've got buddies that fish with we bring whatever we want and make room. Normally we discuss what our plan of attack is and go according to that plan. 99.9% time we bring 6-7 rods each

I don't really care what my buddies bring. Usually 6 combos is good. Medium tackle bag fits under the console. The one thing that they have to bring, is an 18 of miller lite. It fits perfect in the cooler

Everybody that fishes with me brings 15-20 rods. As much tackle as they want.

General rule I take 7 for practice, like to narrow down to 4 for tournament.
