I take at least 3 with me 1 for musky, 1 for just throwing it in and letting it sit, 1 for throwing some lures around.

I've got 12 on the boat. I usually have at least 5 of them rigged on the deck

I fish primarily from my boat for catfish, both flatheads and channels
I take 4 rigs for flathead cats, 2 rigs for channel cats, 3 rigs for bait fish, and occasionally 2 or 3 rigs for bass. I think I'll cut down on the flathead rigs to 2 in the future though so that will make a total of 7 on most trips.

Usually, when I'm fishing alone, 2 or 3. One light spinning set up for tossing lures, one conventional set up for bait or bottom fishing. If I'm not feeling lazy, I'll take a heavier spinning set up, just for good measure.

I will take five with me two baitcasters and three spinning set up for top water, finesse, spinners, and body body baits etc. If the lake has Walleye I take six with the extra set up for trolling.

For me depends on target species but in general I bring 3-4 if solo by foot or boat. If my wife and 2 kids go its usually 12-16. I like having diff class rods with diff rigs, makes it easier than using a heavy rig on a light rod or vice versa. Or having to retie everything. Sometimes the fish don't follow protocol an we gotta switch it up haha
