Large forward box. PDFs , first aid kit, tools, fuses, elect tape, zip ties etc, spare change of clothes, shoes. rain gear, flares, flashlight, fresh water, canned tuna . and anything else I can cram in there before I launch. It holds my HELIX 12 which I mount once underway.

Anchor locker, holds TM foot pedal, anchor , Mooring lines, dock lines, dock bumpers, 16" pruning shears to cut out snagged baits above and right below the surface. There is one under a tree in Wolf Creek. Reminds me I need a tether for the new one.

I select all my tackle for each trip and put it in the boat the night before a trip

I always pack a day bag with food, spare hat, sunscreen, fishing gloves, spare shirt, and waterproof bag for phone and external battery pack, wallet and keys. Hand Gun choice of the day.

The key, if I'm not an idiot on that particular day. Some days are better than others.

First aid kit, sunscreen, dry socks, rain gear, and baby wipes and a gallon ziplock (The last two are for after the coffee has done its thing..)

My boat already has everything I need. I just put drinks, snacks, and ice in the cooler.

The "everything I need" is the question here. Some free wheel it and hope for the best and some prepare for the worst, and most of us are somewhere in between.

Spare drainplug. Everything else is optional.

Way more than I need. The downside to having a lot of storage space if you don't use it wisely.

Its obvious most of you guys have a bigger boat than I do! (16 foot Lowe)
I'm good with the life vest, a cooler full of of cold water, and a few snacks.
I'm jealous of the bigger boats but my garage just won't handle it.

I went from a 21 foot bass boat this year to a 20 foot center console. Storage was cut 80%! TP was one of the first things to go in. I have a 70 plus quart ice chest under the leaning post that carries tools and life jackets. I went from 22 combos to 8 max. Tackle wise i cut it down abunch.

Did I mention TP?

I went from a 21' bass boat to a 22' bay boat. Gained storage space.
