Normally 4.  2 for each of my Jawjackers, then my main rod for whatever I'm targeting that day, and a backup rod for when the inevitable happens  :tipup:  :-\

home waters I take 3, anything outside of that I take 5-7

That's pretty similar to how I pack.  Typically two graphite, one lighter action, then something glass.  If I'm not sure exactly what to expect, I bring a few more spares to cover my bases.  If others need rods, I bring 1-2 per angler plus maybe some sort of tipup to fill the gaps.

For cases, I mostly use Eagle claw or Lakewood soft sided.

Usually 6 or 7: 2 rigged with slip bobbers for the evening crappie, one for the automatic fisherman, two very light rods for jigging up gills and two med/heavier rods for jigging for walleyes/bass.

6, but will be 10 this season, we can use 5 a piece.

I’m sorry but I have never seen the ability to fish more the 2 at a time so I think 5 is impossible.
It can can be done, it's a lot of work, but only usually use 2, they're all rigged with different jigs and spoons, so I can change rods quickly.

Anywhere between 4 and 10, depending on how much room I'll have and what species I can target. I can cram all of them in the eagle claw case if I get creative. Have one dead stick 'dangler', have one set up for a jaw jacker, and the rest I will set up with a variety of different baits so I can quickly switch between them to see what the fish like. Once I narrow in on what's working that day I will re-tie some variations on that. Having a bunch of rods ready to go also lets me keep a couple heavier walleye/northern setups ready to go in case i see one cruising on the sonar.

Usually seven; my sled box has five holders and I always have a Schooley rig  (sometimes two) and another short rod in the box. Each one is rigged differently for varied presentation.

I usually have 6-10 rods with me on the ice, and then another half dozen or so rigged up at home that I grab when needed or when friends wanna tag along.

I take 10 but want to expand to 12. Idaho can have 5 lines in the water. I set up 3 on jaw jackers. Then I have 2 lines in the shanty with me. One that will be usually dead stick with an occasional jig and then one more active. Also helps me have a better shot at getting fish when a school moves through. Those 7 rods not on the jaw jackers are usually all set up with different jigs/lures to i can easily switch around. Also allows me to bring a friend or something who may not have the gear. I also have 2 finders. I have taken a few new-to-ice fishing folks out.

I always have 8 in my hut, in Nebraska we are allowed 5 in use. I have 4 for only dead sticks, 2 ultra lights and 2 medium lights. Do use 5 very often, but always prepared.

A dozen.   Couple rigged as dead sticks. The rest with an assortment of jigs for different targeted species.

 






Wow.  What does all that weigh and how do you bring out to the ice??

Usually 2 or 3 rigged with different baits. Mostly fish for panfish so that's all I need.

Doesn’t weigh all that much. Usually pull by hand using the “Smitty” sled in the corner of the  picture.

2 when strictly panfishing.  For walleye and perch, I take 4.

2 for jigging heavier baits (kastmasters, jigging raps)
1 for deadsticking/slip bobber
1 ul for tungsten/panfish jigs

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
What happens in the shanty....stays in the shanty
