How do you organize your tackle bag?


Recommended Posts

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 similar set up as mrfish.

Box 1 has terminal tackle and jigs

Box 2 has slip bobbering stuff and spinners/lindy rigs

Box 3 has crankbaits

Box 4 has spoons and large trout/pike selection

Also use bait boxes for the big water tackle...

B.B.1 has reef runners and other cranks

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.

      Heard that too. Also heard 38 was closed for a but north of rapids due to flooding.    I know the water really came up when I was up last week compared to when I was there in April.

      Someone said 4 inches in the past week, more expected this weekend. A few roads, including county roads that are asphalt ended up with sink holes. Lakes are the highest I've ever seen in the 30+ years coming to the area and now living here. Several people lost trees Tues night

      Dang Kettle  that bites. Great to hear fishing was good though.   How much rain you get up that way?

      50 in 6 hours is great. Boat issues really put a damper on a great day though. Hope you get it fixed quickly.

      Well boat finally got "fixed" and I picked it up Saturday. Last week worked 96 hrs so Sunday wanted the day to fish alone. Boat ran great out to the spot, 4 miles or so. Fishing was great boated over 50 walleye in about 6 hrs. Caught them lindy rigging, jigging and bobber fishing watching them on the live scope. Kept 6 between 18-20 inches. After using the trolling motor for the entire time fishing, go to fire up the tiller and it bogs down and dies. Another 4 hours running the trolling motor back to the launch. Fortunate it's under warranty. Bummer of a day but fishing was great landed one about 7 lbs too

      Terrible news for that area especially this being such a prime time for tourism. We can only hope for dryer days ahead so they can get back to normal.

      For those not in the area, the Lake Vermilion area got anywhere from 5-10" of rain the other day (depending on your source). The lake is rising rapidly affecting docks, shorelines, and cabins. The Littlefork River that runs through Cook overran its banks and flooded the town. It's not expected to crest until at least Saturday, which means things will get worse. Places such as the Comet, the Muni, the library, and many other businesses are flooded. Many roads in the area have been destroyed by flooding as well. There's lots of damage. Below are two quick links.   https://www.northernnewsnow.com/2024/06/20/floodwaters-inundate-city-cook-evacuation-location-open/   https://www.mprnews.org/story/2024/06/20/cleanup-continues-flooding-in-northeast-minnesota-southern-minnesota-rivers-rising

      Apparently just the motorized portage.   If you paddle you are good to go.

      The only way I could do it is running parallel to the shoreline on the "L", but with the wake from the boats and my rocky shoreline, the waves just bounce it around too much, even with bumpers tied off. My neighbors dock is recessed off the main channel, I'm going to sweet talk him into letting me dock it there.

      They closed the Trout Lake Portage down washed out.
