I've minimized these days to keep it simple. I also use the replacement tub in the center hatch and keep essentials there. I use the rod holder tubes in the front during transport and then leash rods in the ones behind the seat while on the water. I only take three. I have a home made (Home Depot plant stake) stakeout pole that also stays in the rod storage tubes when not in use. Tackle box under the seat secured by a web, Tackle Webs on the sides of the seat, a small tackle bag for extra lures, etc. behind the seat. I don't use a crate any more, it's simpler this way for me. Everything is in easy reach and 90% is in or on the PA while trailering. Launch and go, fast and easy.
