Minimalist kayak fishing! I found myself carrying 3 rods out and I am still okay with that number as most of us have room for these without space issues. But, a big tackle box? No way unless someone is just in favor of it. I have much more fun either knowing the lake or finding out as much about it ahead of time as possible, then looking at what the weather is supposed to be, and more research. The research will help you leave 90% of your tackle at home.
Like most kayak anglers, I lean heavily toward finesse techniques, so I would normally have a drop shot, maybe a wacky rigged senko, and maybe a topwater if that might come into play.
I don't mind taking a moment and changing up, so the senko set-up could be quickly re-worked into a T-Rig or a weightless worm or a split shot. The topwater could quickly be reoriented to shad-like swimbait.
A handful of plastics, some replacement hooks, etc., a few lures. Off you go.
