    during the summer, when it is all catfish and gar, I bring:
    • Rod & reel
    • Cast net
    • Tackle container
    • Pliers
    • Landing net (only if I am targeting big gar)
    • Stringer
    • Measuring tape
    • Pocketknife
    I fit the stuff into a big outdoors back pack, get on my bike and ride a mile down to the river and fish all afternoon. That is how my fishing is all summer.

    I pretty much take the same stuff but will also take cell phone, gun, and sometimes food if I plan to stay a while. I will also take my son every couple of trips. Usually, though, we plan trips just with him in mind so everything takes a backseat to what he wants to fish for(more and more though that is catfish) n:smile2:

    I take pretty much the same stuff but I will always have a 100 gallon oval poly- horse tank with a built in aerator in the back of my truck....just in case a I land some fish that I want to keep alive to take some pictures of and then release.

    I agree with adding the Cell Phone. I always like to take plenty of food so if I don't catch fish I can change the trip into a picnic.:haha: We used to take TWINKIES but not any more there has been a twinkie shortage in the states that surrounds Kentucky:waaaht: :shame: :too_sad: :hungry:
