I have to wonder:
How much "fishing gear" would you need to have to stay out for a whole week?
That is a good question, as they say. I don't know what Hollgi would take, but I've learned to keep the gear down. No matter how many lures/hooks/baits I take, I use very few--those combos that have worked before. People say, "what is your favorite lure?" The answer: "the last one I caught a fish on." I know what will usually catch dinner:
1 rod/reel, a Cajun Thunder rattling cork, a couple Gulp! pearl white shrimp, some fluorocarbon leader, a few hooks, and a small fishing net. If I'm going for a week,
like a 70-mile trip from Flamingo to Chokoloskee along the Everglades Gulf coast, I would take 1-2 rod/reels, 2 or 3 rattling corks, leader, hooks, and 15-18 Gulp! shrimp, a pair of Chompers grips in place of the net. Except for the rod/reels every thing fits easily in the round hatch in front of me. Now, since I usually designate a couple days for fishing during a week-long trip, I would carry a few of my truly favorite lures (yeah, the ones I've caught fish with) and maybe 1-2 new ones. These lures would fit in a small box which would also go in the hatch in front of me.
Now, that I have a pair of hakas, I will probably carry 2 rod/reels lashed to the hakas. The fishing gear including rod/reels weighs less than 5#.
Now, that is my approach. Others are going to do things differently.
