Just wondering how some of you guys/gals carry around your gear and what vehicle do you use? If possible post a picture with your vehicle all loaded up.

It depends on the trip.

If it is not local, more than 30 mins., I put the tube in the back of my wifes zx2. Deflated of course. I carry a blanket to throw over the hood and inflate/attach all my stuff to the tube. This saves on gas so I can buy more fishing gear.

If the fishing hole is 30 minutes or less from home I inflate the tube and place it in the back of my tricked out full size truck. I have some fishing holes I can get to and on the water in under 30 minutes.

You should always take a pump with you.

I agree with bigfish on all parts, remember also if you are traveling to a place of elevation you want to completely deflate your tube as the change in altitude with cause your tube to inflate.

I have a tiny Hyundai Sonata. I pull the back seats down, deflate the tube by about 2/3rds capacity so it's partially in the back and partially in the drunk. Put my poles in so the reels are sitting in the passenger side floorboard and poles are resting on the armrest between driver and passenger.

I use to drive a two door civic and it was getting hard to load up my gear. So I sold it and got me a truck.

Having a truck or suv really come in handy when carrying or hauling gear around.

Two door accord here. Rod rack/waders and fins go into trunk first. Deflate and fold up my tube, toss into trunk. Rods will sit shotgun.
