I use a one man portable and because of it I dont have a lot of room. I mainly fish pan fish. I bought a small plastic box that fits in my pocket that has compartments. In it I keep a little of everything I need so I dont have to dig out my main box. I personally like the clear plastic kits. I have everything I need in one small carry pouch that also has enough room for my wire cutters, plyers and forceps.

For jigs, you can't beat bug luggage or a rose creek fly box. I also have a Falcon crappie jig organizer box that holds jigging spoons, chubby darters, more jigs, split shot, ice buster bobbers and all kinds of other little odds and ends. The reason I love the Falcon box so much more than your typical Plano of Flambeau box is that the compartments are solid molded, not adjustable. That means none of your jigs migrate from one spot to another, hooks don't slide under, it all stays where it was put. I don't have a pic of the Falcon box off hand, but here is a shot of the bug luggage with some of the top jigs. The one jig that is missing caught me three crappies tonight. wink

Get the boxes with the moisture absorbers to prevent rust they go along way for ice fishing tackle

Those bug luggages look sweet Polarsus. Did you purchase locally? I am on the hunt for one of these bad boys. wink
