I always take 6 rods plus tip ups. We are allowed 6 lines here in a Wyoming and when I always rig up 2 rods so when the bite is one I can just grab second rod and get back down to the fish quickly
Just to keep people out of trouble, in Wyoming we can use 6 rods only on lakes designated in the Special Winter Ice Fishing Provision; everywhere else is 2 rods per angler.

I used to take 6-7 rods during a solo outing, but now this year I'm in an apartment...so my gear outfitting has had to be slimmed down a bit.
I'm going to try and bring only 3 or 4 rods each outing this season. (Only allowed 2 lines in the water here)

I take 6.  I have 3 jigging rods for panfish (one for a jig and spike, one for a light spoon, and one for slightly heavier spoons or lipless baits), one heavier rod in case I want to jig for bass or walleye (not much for walleye around me, but hey...you never know), and then I have two cheap rods that I can set on my Arctic Warrior tip-ups.
My Setup:  Otter XL sled on a smitty.  10" Strikemaster Lithium 50 Volt auger.  Clam Bigfoot XL 2000 hub.  Garmin Striker 5 Ice Bundle.

7 or 8 we are allowed 7 lines per guy here in NYS. Doesn't matter in what combination we use them either. Can be 1 jigging rod 6 tip up or tip downs or you could have 7 jigging rods in at one time. As long as there isn't more than 5 lures and 15 hook points your in the clear in nys

Usually 3-4.  Two noodles for panfish jigs, one a little heavier for spoons/raps, and sometimes one for a minnow deadstick.

Holy cow, in Iowa we get three but have to buy the third one.

I wish we were able to buy extra tip ups. It'd be nice to hand fish two rods and then have three or four tip ups as well

Usually take 3 rods when just jigging...one with 2lb test for bait, one with 3lb test for plastics and one with 4lb test for spoons.  Times will bring Jawjackers and have one rod for each.  Nez

The question is how many rods do you bring, not how many are you allowed..

In Michigan I can bring as many rods as I want, but can only have three in the water per person.

I bring rods with assorted jigs so I can change fast when I am viewing the camera.

5 tip ups and 7 rods is normal for me.

Wow that's crazy. They obviously don't consider or care don't if you lose a rod down a hole or break a rod, then you're only left with one! What a narrow-minded and unnecessarily strict law!

Ive always had 3 with me but going up to 5 this year. They have never been jerks b4 about it when dec stops by so I figure they realize things like that too, anyway only my jig rod and dead stick are ever out the rest are in the bag. I do over run wires and tip downs every now and then.

I bring 10 or 12 with different jigs on them, don't like to tie jigs on in cold.
If fishing is a sport are we considered athletes?
