Fishing Plastics Storage Idea

Recommended Posts

I never really liked the idea of having a binder to hold all of my plastics when I am out in the boat because they usually don't hold enough packages or they always find a way to leak/tear. I came up with this idea last season on a better way (at least for me) to store all of my plastics.

I went out and bought four of the Plano Spinnerbait tackle boxes and ended up pulling the plastic inserts out of each one of them except for my Crappie Plastics box.

The above image is a side view of the panfish plastics that I have. I left the inserts inside this tackle box because it is very easy to separate the tubes from the twister tails and the other style plastics. Also, the dividers allow me to be able to locate which type of plastic very quickly, instead of having to sort through all of the tiny panfish plastic packages inside the box.

Above is just an overhead view of how the panfish plastics box looks. Notice how the inserts separate each style of plastic.

Other than panfish plastics, I also use the spinnerbait boxes for my walleye and bass plastics as well. It works very well without the inserts for the bigger plastics because I can just flip through the packages and find the style that I am looking to use on any particular day.

I hope this tip helps keep you guys a little more organized when you're out in the boat and it also will give you a little project to feed that open water itch that a lot of us are getting at the moment! wink

Those are nice, but they are imitating the top container made by Flambeau.

These Flambeaus are the best two boxes I could find for storing all my plastics. Any knockoff brands I own end up in a ziplock bag in the shallow box and the name brand plastics go in the taller box.

They sell for about 12 bucks at Fleet Farm

Rawhog, thanks for the find! Those are even an upgrade from what I modified. It also looks like I could have one big box instead of my smaller individual boxes.

No problem brotha! What you have are perfect until they start overflowing with plastics lol, so no need to upgrade until then. Its all about being organized and finding that perfect bait ASAP!

Holy balls^ I only need 3! I bet you could fit 30 full bags of plastics and 60 half-full bags of plastics in one of the tall boxes if you utilized every single square inch wouldnt be pretty/organized)

I prefer the Plano spinnerbait case because it is smaller. Have lots of larger containers, but don't generally need/want that many plastics with me. The Plano allows for better portability. Still, nice product by Flambeau.

    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
    • I ripped a hole in one of my favorite pairs of fishing shorts just need a decent sized patch to cover her up
    • I am not sure what happened either but we lost all of the posts last couple days not just this thread. And it looks like the same thing happened over on FM site as well. I know the site was down last night while I tried look at it.
    • We had no problems but only brought 10 extra gallons over.  We fished 5 days, pretty much running wherever we wanted and ended with 7 gallons remaining in the boat.  So, we burned 30 gallons of fuel in a 1785 Lund with 90 hp Mercury 4 stroke.   I thought that was pretty good!
    • Seems to me that we are missing an entire page from this thread that was here yesterday.... what gives?
