How do you organize your tackle bag?

15 posts in this topic

Just curious to see how some of you organize some of your Plano Boxes in your bag.

Here is something I started doing this past year for my walleye boxes. Sure helps keep everything together and not floating around in my bag.

I have all my blades sorted and put in these little plastic boxes that fit right into a 3700 size box. I also keep weights, beads, clevis's, hooks, and everything else for walleye fishing in these little boxes.

Works awesome!

Let's see your ideas.

I bought them in bulk from a dealer. My brother used to work for a company that these are what the welding tips came in. I got quite a few of them left, PM me if your interested. Not the cheapest pc of plastic I have ever bought but they sure do make organizing nice.

I use a large soft sided bag with the large plastic containers, and mark the outside with what is in each one.

I use those weekly pill boxes that you can get at any drug store. They're only a buck or two and you get seven compartments. They fit nicely in my 3700 boxes.

Lets see. I usually buy new tackle, open takle box and dump in. Then when I need them I open takle box dig and dig and dig til I find what I need. I then run around the boat picking up packages the wind has blown around and repeat. crazy

That is very impressive!

I have been searching for a walleye rig kit along the lines of something like that to buy pre-made, but can't find anywhere where they are sold in kits larger than like 300 pieces.

I buy a pack of blades or clevices and lord only knows what happens to the rest of them after I open the package...

Very nice!

I have a bigger GM bag that holds 6 bigger boxes and one little one in the main compartment

Boxes

1. Topwaters

2. Rattle Raps

3. Other Crankbaits

4. Plastics

5. Live bait stuff (bobbers, hooks, jig heads, etc.)

6. Leftovers/spares

7. Spinner/Buzzbaits (the little one)

The rest of the bag is filled with the rest of the stuff in your average box.

Just for grins and giggles I took out the Berkley scale and hooked 'er up. 17.8 pounds. I thought it felt a little weighty on the shoulder.

    • Last weekend spent some time re-sealing a small seam leak on a trim edge. Found out the owner before us had a leak on the same trim edge spot and left out a screw!! Also washed down the canopy and the ever reoccurring black streaks around the roof edge.   This weekend may go back and clean out and reseal a few other areas the passed own made a mess of sealing with sillycone! Using Butyl rubber this time as silicone can be pulled right off after a few years.
    • Lots of talk on sports radio and social media lately on whether the Wolves should workout a deal that sends Wiggins to Cleveland for Kyrie. Of course there would likely be some other bit players involved to make contracts work, but for all intents and purposes it's Wiggins for Kyrie.   As a fan, would you do it, yes or no?   I'm personally leaning toward "no." Kyrie is very good and still young. But he doesn't seem to offer much beyond scoring - not a prolific assist guy and his defense has never stood out. Perhaps most importantly, if reports are true and one of the main reasons he wants to leave Cleveland is so he can be the primary star on his own team - that makes me question what type of leader, team player, and locker room presence he would be. Say what you want about Lebron, but on the court he seems like an ideal teammate, almost too willing to make the extra pass. And Cleveland still has one of the best routes back to the Finals, why would you want to get away from that?
      Wiggins certainly has his faults, but he is a dynamite scorer. His defensive is poor, but at least the tools are there to be a good defender. If we lose him we also have a pretty big hole to fill on our roster. Whereas right now we have what appears to be a solid PG in Teague.    I wouldn't hate it if we landed Kyrie, but with our current situation I prefer Wiggins. All in all though, it's certainly fun to finally be in a situation where stars want to play here, not avoid Minny at all costs.
    • For many years my dad, uncles, etc have been heading to the Leech Lake area every spring and fall to fish for walleyes. There are usually 8-10 guys that go. Many of them are from the Barron, Wisconsin area. Since I've never really fished in Wisconsin, thought it might be fun to head to there one of these trips. Have always heard the Hayward area is pristine. Does anyone have a favorite lake, or possibly a favorite resort in the area I should add to the list when doing some research?  Walleyes are the only thing these guys are after.   I know there is a Wisconsin form, but it seems kind of quiet over there, so I'm hoping to get some opinions here.    
    • Well except for the owner. He's kinda ancient!!   We did the same thing with the frig to Dave on the first camper we had.

    • I've done a few things to the old camper in the last few weeks.   First I replaced the old crank jack with a new electric jack.     Then the cooling unit on my fridge went out so I ended up just replacing the 6 cu. ft 2 way fridge with a 9.9 cu. ft. residential electric only fridge.   Next order of business is new tires.
