How do you keep your tackle organized?

Recommended Posts

Other then in plano boxes......for me one example is rapalas. I label the row with the model and depth range. To me they all look the same after a while. crazy.gif

Any others?

I take a fine permanent marker, and put the

depth on the crank-bait's lip. As you said, they all

look alike once out of the box..

I don't keep a lot of different diving or sinking lures, just some good ones. The diving lures all have the running depth written on them with permanent marker.

Each species has its own tackle boxes that are labeled such. Then I use Todays Tackle pouches to keep the tackle oraganized within that box. As for the crank baits I keep most of them at home except the ones I am going to use that day and a few extras. One of the hardest things on tackle is bouncing around in the boat and rubbing against eachother. take just what ya need and use the pouches to keep it in top notch shape and organized.

For my crankbaits I purchased a box that holds the baits vertical, each has its own area and can't get hooked together. The boxes are not carried in stores, I got my at a walleye fishing expo. It works great.

I have a tackle bag that holds 8 3700s. I have them organized by type:

1. stickbaits

2. crankbaits

3. spinnerbaits/spoons

4. plastics #1 (assorted plastics/hooks/weights)

5. plastics #2 (senko-type lures/hooks/weights)

6. crappie jigs and terminal tackle

7. Crappie plastics

8. muskie lures

i also have a smaller box that fits in the front pocket of the tackle bag for walleye jigs. I have one of those snell things with the velcro for another side pocket, along with various bags of plastics in another side pocket. Mine even has a hard-sided sunglass case on the front of it, along with sleeves for pliers, nail clippers, hook sharpener, and jaw spreader.

Keep a huge box orginized to your preference. When you head out take 1-4 poles rigged different and keep a small tray or bag of just baits and lures/rigging or bobber componets that you need. Works great and saves space and clutter. I wouldnt recommend this approach to all day trips or tourneys though. WHen I fish alone no matter how long I cary my whole box in place of my brother grin.gifgrin.gif

Other than 1 tackle box for stick baits, and a couple for ice fishing I just lump the rest of it together and fish with a basic mess blush.gif

      Great video Curt, for as much of it that I could see. Keep up the good work, and one question, Are there any live emerald shiners around the Baudette area to be had, or just frozen ones?
    • eyeguy 54
      Its a little stiffer than my titanium spring boober and much more sensitive.  I like it  better than the 27 inch ul ticklestick. Only used 3 and 4 mm jigs so far. Thumbs up from me.

      2/18/18     Got out on an area lake an hour before sunrise Saturday. Got a bunch of crappies until they slowed about 9 am. Most between 9.5 and 11 inches. Sunfish started biting about sunrise and bit all morning. Half of them were 8 to 8.5 inches. Most of the rest were 7 to 7.5 inches. Kept two meals of fish--released the rest. 1/32 ounce VMC Tungsten Tubbies tipped with a single wax worm or two red Eurolarvae fished just above some weeds in thirteen feet of water caught fish after fish. Lots of good ice on area lakes. Even though walleyes and pike close in just over a week and wheel houses can't stay out unattended soon, still a lot of good ice fishing for panfish to come. Will have plenty of ice for a while, so get out and enjoy the peace and quiet and fast crappie and sunfish action that March will bring. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Had a chance to rub shoulders and fish with some of the ice team guys today. Great bunch of guys we had some good laughs and of course discussed plenty about fishing. Even shared a few hotspots. The hands on they give the people that sign up for this event is absolutely amazeing! From hands on to tips on everything to do to make your day on the ice way more productive. From what I witnessed it would be well worth the investment to sign up for one of there events , if you are new to fishing or heck even a seasoned angler.  Fished with one guy from Nebraska said he has done 5 of these events and has enjoyed everyone of them.  Fun day for sure

      Royce, how’s the sensitivity Is the tip soft like a tickle stick and how’s quality seem? About same price as a tickle stick I see may have to try one for next season. If It passes with flying colors do you it must be good! Tough day for me not much happening went from about 8-29 FOW and just nothing. Found perch in about 19 but even they seemed finicky and would only hit the dead stick. A bit windy on the lake today to!
    • The Chemist
      Yes that would be the one. A friend of mine sent it to me. The guy who got it is a friend of his nephew. 
    • The Chemist
      So that explains the traffic and also the one where they were shooting video of what appeared to be about a drill type auger. Did drive by an ice team truck on the way out also.
    • The Chemist
      The warmer weather has brought alot of people out to the area. We are waiting for the later bite. Most are setup in shallowet water. Haven't marked fish yet but tendto see them at sunset.    Be careful with all the holes being drilled! I found one that was covered back in, got my shin, luckily not my ankle.
    • eyeguy 54
      Started out in 26 feet this morning and had 5 dandy crappies in 15 minutes then it was over. moved a mile and found a few dandy gills in 16 feet. And a couple bass.  Day 2 with the new rods and liking them more.
