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?

Here is one posted on a different thread

tackle organizer

Other than that I just throw my stuff back in the box and then get upset when I cant find anything. smirk.gif

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

      Was out for a while on the Partridge River this afternoon, didn't have any minnows, managed one 13" crappie on Gulp waxes.  But, the old Strikemaster almost bottomed out-close to 30" of ice.

      I don't know what your Helix 7 requires in the manual, but a quick look would figure out if that 3amp is too small. Definitely wire your sonar to the motor battery using the correct gauge wire and fuse. If you connect it to another battery, it should be a stand-alone. Connecting to the trolling motor battery will generate interference.

      I've done cheeks quite a few times and they are always good. They take only a few seconds to carve out. I like to get the most out of the things I kill to eat, so I'm not afraid to pull them out of smaller ones. I'm glad to see that so many people picked up a new tip. That's the point of congregating on these forums. I wonder how many non-registered folks will read this and learn something new.

      I've been doing them for many years.  Like Cliff, a friend who was a guide on LOW brought some out prior to the main course-been doing it since.

      With the snow cover completely gone and lots of standing water, 60s in the forecast, with plenty of sunny days next week, and a good chance of rain mid-week; this may be my last weekend on the ice, South of Hwy 210 anyway . Fish have really been on the chew

      hey guys..i installed the helix 7. took it out the other day. it keeps  randomly shutting down, with the motor off it will stay on no problem. Heres where i think i f'd up. i used the same 3 amp fuse harness from the old sonar that came with the boat, the old hb depth only kind. its wired right to the ignition wire. i used the correct gauge wire where i needed it. im guessing its not getting enough juice? also if i wired it direct to a separate battery, how do i go about hooking up and on board charger? or would i be ok just wiring direct to the battery that runs the motor? thanks for any advice. those musky lures look so bad ass! nice work !!

      I think it is a matter of the material involved.   Ethanol can corrode some metal and dissolve some organic stuff like rubber or plastic that gasoline doesn't affect.   Or so some sources say.
