Tackle Bags

Recommended Posts

Whats out there that works good for lots of ice tackle, in a smaller size bag? What does everyone use?

I don't use a bag, just a plastic jig box about the size of the ones that slide into the bag I use in the summer.

I use a pistol case. A bigger one for spoons and a smaller one for crappie jigs. Just stick the hooks into the foam

I just use small plaino boxes and put them in my Revolution Bag or my Otter Sportsmans Caddy. Both work great.

I have one of the thorne bros. rod bags. I LOVE it. I only carry 4 rods/reels. The side pockets hold my 4 vex sized tackle boxes, and there's plenty more room for GPS, and all the other stuff (pliars, clippers, bobbers, sinkers, etc). Check them out. They are a great all in one bag if you're looking for something more than a bag to only hold your tackle boxes.

I use a small fabric tackle bag that zippers up with like 10 plastic ziploc bage in it. It's Like a 3 ring binder. Not sure who makes them but they are handy.

This is what I use also. Works well for my needs.

I'll third that but don't have the revolutioni bag. Just put them under a lid in my modified otterII.

I have a 3 tray Rapala bag I bought at Gander Mntn for $9.99, after I bought mine, they all disappeared, must have been a clearance deal

Various size fly boxes work well. Hold lots of jigs and small enough to fit from rod bag to pocket for run and gunning.

I'm going to be using a fly case for my smaller ice jigs, and a few plano boxes for bobbers, weights, spoons, darters, etc. Should keep everything organized and still have room in the side compartments for pliers, extra lights, and a scale.

    • Chocolate peanut butter stout is back on tap at the Boathouse in Ely.    A little thinner than last year but still a treat!
    • Surface water temps in Ely are 69-71 on the lakes we visited.  I think that’s a really fast warm up though and the actual spawning depth temps are lower.  I haven’t seen any bass bedding activity and the 18-19 inch smallies I’ve been catching are all fat and egg laden.     They’re sitting deeper than usual this time of year too.  The walleyes are are still shallow.
    • Pumper don't forget to register your bird.
    • Had 3 long beards come out gobbl8ng and running but not to me.  Had them all fired up but they obviously had another destination in mind.
    • I didn’t know grackles fished either.  Interesting. 
    • Was checking back to see you with a bird pic @Borch
    • So this is not a new thing!  Interesting.  I keep finding more and more complex behavior in so many of these "dumb" animals!  So many of them are anything but dumb.
    • When I was a kid, we used to have a pond in our yard. We would keep fish and minnows in there. The grackles would clean in out! We had to resort to putting a cover over it.
    • Last Thursday on a visit to my sister in Rock Rapids IA, we made a circuit through the Island Park there.  At the low dam just past the former railroad bridge which is now a walking path we saw a group of grackles fishing at the edge of the white water where it ran against the rocks at the shore line.  There probably were a dozen or so all told moving back and forth and some on the rocks at the other shore line.  In something like half an hour or less we saw various of the birds bring out minnows and eat them on the shore to a total of at least 8.  They also contested for the better fishing spots and tried to horn in on other birds' catches;   they would fly out to quite a bit up on shore with a catch to eat it there. I never expected to see grackles fishing.  I never heard of that before, but then it wouldn't be the first time I didn't know about something relatively common.
