Default Co-angler question

Hello everyone, I am new to this forum and I am stoked to have found it.

I have a question about tackle bags, I have the Plano Flipsider and it holds 3 3700 series boxes and two good sized side pockets and the front flip down. The problem is that it is fairly large and don't feel that it can carry the selection of tackle that I would like. There are many bags on the market and would like to avoid as much trial and error as possible.

Also how big is too big to bring as a co-angler?

How many rods are too many as a co-angler?

I would like to avoid being "that guy"

Any input would be great!

Good luck stick. What events are you fishing? Individual weight, I have used a smaller flipsider when I had a pattern worked out. You should just get some smaller boxes for your weights, hooks, shakeys,etc. A couple of packs of the hot plastics for the day. You can always add more each night. The flipsider has plenty of holes for hard baits. I have been caught without "the bait" but that is the trials of riding the back seat. My "other" bag is a soft side that holds 6 or so 3700s. I use that one when I am a little more scattered with my game plan.

Rods? 2 spinning ready for my preferred method(s), One reaction bait rod if that is going, One or two jig, texas, carolina sticks. Sometimes I would have as many as 6 but that is a scattered pattern. Try to pare it down with your prefish.

I think the "that guy" myth is overblown. Frontseaters may laugh but who cares. It is your fishing trip. They are just there to give you a ride. Just don't break my boat or get in my way and you are welcome to bring anything you want on my boat.

Stickin It I give you permission to get in ROBERT F's way whenever you want. . Now for Stuff to bring, Robert has is pretty much narrowed down. Ive had ams bring 8 rods, I've had some bring 2. The key thing is to get out on the water before the tournament and try to pattern some fish to the equipment that you have and are willing to bring. If my Am wants to bring as much tackle as he wants he is more than welcome too, HES GOT THE WHOLE BACK TO HIMSELF..... Being that guy isnt always so bad we've all been there. Welcome to CAL-Bassin

Thanks for the feed back. Based on what Iíve read I think that I am in pretty good shape, other than some minor tweaking.

fish some shared events as it will help you develop skills. I'm looking forward to the return of the AC ProAms.
