For bass fishing. There isn't really a need for more than 15 setups. IT's the upgrading and not selling off the dusty stuff that adds up.

But if you fish the surf that could be another Dozen rods.
Boat for bass blues and bottom fishing. Tack on another 12.
Tuna, sharks and swords......another 20

Trout...add another 5.

Salmon and steelhead...another 6

if that is anyone's collection, I think you need theropy. Many of those rods have the loomis labels still on the cork.


When I look in a much smaller rod locker, this is the image I get. Took me a long time to realize this. Actually fishing out of a second boat in Florida with only 6 rigs taught me I catch more when I focus and that fighting clutter actually negatively impacts the experience.

If you can do without the beats and remove the sub you should have room for some more rods. :lol:

On a serious note it looks like a shipment of rods for a show that some rep is transporting.

Hopefully he doesn't need one of the rods on the bottom.

I'm wondering if that truck was broke into and the rods were taken would your insurance cover the loss? You better have a good rider on it...... Or if it was parked in your driveway would your home owners take care of it?

I'm just going out on a limb and figuring on a low end, but there has to be a hundred combos there at least and I will just throw a average of 400 a combo. (I assume I am on the very low end) All I can say is that I am very jealous, that figures out to more than my salary. You don't have a spare 893 in there you wanna part with?if you can find it lol.

There's never too many rods if budget and priorities allow.
