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.

    • DonBo, good luck on your bow quest,  your father raised you well!  What a great way to celebrate life by sharing a hunt together.
    • My family has LIfe 360 on our phones. It allows you to know exactly where that phone is at all times. My teenage kids were not to hip on the idea until my wife explained that you either have the app or you don't have a phone. It already saved a phone. My son dropped his phone in the middle of a bean field last summer.  We were able to use the app to drive a wheeler to within 10ft. Well worth it.
    • My personal opinion on the backup pumps is that they are a stop gap to buy you enough time to minimize the amount of water that backs up during a torrential storm while you get your primary pumps on a generator.    Obviously the biggest factor is to figure out how much water can enter the drainage system during the heaviest downpours and that can help you decide what gpm you need to stay ahead of the water. If you get a bigger backup pump then you will burn through a battery faster.    If you don't get a lot of water in the system ever and if the sump pump only runs periodically during even heavy rains and wet weather then you can get more run time from a smaller system.    There really isn't a way to say exactly what you need to be 100%safe unless you know exactly what flows you have.
    • Already doing many of these.  It's slowly improving.
    • I was just getting some info on this unit: http://www.zoellerpumps.com/en-ap/product/63-basement-sentry#features     I am sure you could hook up multiple batteries as well
    • Sunday, pulled a group of 3 toms from about 500 yds across private into the public only to hang up at 60 yds. We worked them for 2 hrs and they never got in front of the blind. They finally got closer, but instead of going in front of the blind, they got behind the blind at about 5 yards inside the woodline and could hear them stepping on twigs. Man what a rush. Sadly, they walked back onto private and out of our lives LOL. Kinda wish I was hunting with a shotgun!   3 or 4 gobblers were rattling off behind us in the woods in the morning and shut up by 7. The 3 that we got to come in from private were to the other side and they didn't gobble til they were close enough to see/hear our setup. Those two hours were between 8 and 10. Will try again.
    • They will lose 90 to 100 games again this year. They do not have the pitching to even get to 500. Santana will be our lone all-star and be traded before end of year. Hope something changes but they did not add anything for starters or offensive so until they do we will get the same junk. Really sucks cause i love watching and listening to the games all summer long.
    • % of people that have picked that person. 
    • Some rainy river monsters! 61" 60" and a 54"! Have a look!  
    • Many big sturgeon boated this past week again.  Has been a great year for sturgeon so far up and down the river.  Fish different holes until you find fish.  Use a 3 ounce no roll sinker, a 1-1.5 foot leader, and a circle hook loaded (called a sturgeon rig) with frozen shiners and crawlers for best results. Anchor boat up stream of a deeper hole and pitch sturgeon rig into the hole. Heavy equipment is preferred.  Pike fishing is going good right now in shallow bays and on the Rainy River. Best methods so far are using buzz baits or lying a frozen cisco on bottom with a hook and weight(similar to a sturgeon rig but with less weight).   Pike are active in bays. The lake and bays and water starting to warm up and pike are being caught.  Pike are open all year up on LOW.   Up at the NW Angle, the ice is gone and it's open water.  Remember, walleyes open May 13th, pike and crappies open all year for LOW MN and sturgeon fishing through May 15th and then again July 1st.
