I'm not as sick as you guys. I only have 15 trolling and 3 spinning setups. Also a couple spare rods & reels just in case something breaks. Got out of ice fishing years ago and my son took all that stuff along with a couple spinning outfits.

Once you get over 50 then you'll start to lighten up the load a little :lol: .

Why are you doing this? I woke up and felt good about myself this morning, even with the cold and wind. Then I answered your little poll, had to take inventory and now realize how much I have spent! Darn good thing I'm single, or I would be soon! I have 4 wire set ups, 6 innerflow rods for planer board and walleye, and I think 8 - 10 regular trolling rods.

4 leadcore setups

1 600' copper setup

10 Rigger rods

4 diver rods(2 wire/2 mono)

10 spinning rods

3 fly rods

5 bait casting rods

5 icefishing rods

A friend of my entered the dark world of float fishing. Its the bastard child of a noodle rod and fly reel. allows for better drifts using skein and a bobber w/ just enough shot to keep the bait just off the bottom, one of many combinations. Basically it does what a cane pole used to do, but costs a lot more~! Some day I'll give it a try~ sad, but true

WOW.....didnt realize the amount of money I had tied up inrods and reels. As far as I can remember off the top of my head I have:

22 trolling outfits

23 bass outfits

1 ultralite

1 flyrod

1 noodle rod

4 ice set-ups

Of course I didnt buy all the trolling setups, but I use them :lol: . If I were to put my dad and brothers other rods into that count it might touch 70 :shock: setups.

I'm gonna include both mine and my father's as we share most of the boat rods:

4 BWD ugly sticks for riggers

4 regular ugly sticks with shimano saharas for planar board trolling - shallow for browns and such

2 diawa accudepth/ heartland dipsy/ rigger rods

2 diawa sealine/ heartland wire dipsy rods

2 diawa accudepth/ firewolf dipsy rods

2 seth green rigs with pflueger 3180 reels

2 no name dipsy rods and accudepth reels - don't use much anymore

2 st croix spinning rods with stradic reels

2 ugly stick lite rods and sahara reels

2 guide series spining rods and symmetre reels

2 fly rods

2 ultra light rods and symmetre reels.

I guess that's about it. It makes 26 total


we still use our seth green rigs in the spring and occasionally in the finger lakes. They can be a pain sometimes but they work!!!

How come there is not an over 50 setups on the poll question??? Closing in quick on 100

...... there also seems to be a little discrimination on this poll :shock:

we'll have to start another area that is made for old guys (people) with too much equipment :lol:

Can't wait to see who starts the poll on "How many boats do you have??" ;)
