Hi everyone, wanted to know if anyone could tell me in their opinion what they think is the best tackle bag. I like to be very organized so the bigger the better. Price does not matter to me.

There are many styles of bags - some with tote handles/shoulder straps, some you wear like a backpack, etc. You have to decide what style you're looking for.

For a regular tote/shoulder type bag, I've always been impressed by the green bags at Cabelas. I don't normally use a tackle bag, but if I did, these are what I would use:

Advanced Angler Pro-Series Tackle Bag - no boxes

Advanced Angler Pro-Series Tackle Bag - with boxes

These bags are on sale right now!
Just fish...

I bought 2 on black friday... they have the Spiderwire tackle bag at Academy.. with the trapdoor on the sides... love it... but if you want a bigger one they have the one at Cabelas that holds the bigger tackle trays.. 5 of them... think it's called theCabelas x50... I bought one and it's real cool looking...might check their website to see if they still have them... I paid 29.99 without the boxes and I think the are 59.99 with the boxes...

I use one of the aforementioned Cabela's. However, I sound like a broken record on the subject of tackle bags. There are a number of brands that are well made. First, determine what best fits your needs with regard to size, capacity, number of pockets and pocket configuration. Then buy it if it's a name brand or you otherwise believe it to be a well-made product.

I wish I had seen those Cabela bags before I bought one at Bass Pro Shop a few days ago. A large Advanced Anglers Pro Series would have been perfect...

I'm pretty sure that Shimano, Jeeps, women, rye and the Chicago Bears are the keys to a good life.

I like the Shimano Blackmoon. Buddy has it and seems to hold everything he needs when we are fishing the rivers on a long day. Get the Medium size one if size and price does not matter to you. I like how the plano can slide out like that.

I use the advanced Angler bags. They are high quality and tough as nails. Had mine 4+ years now, and no issues at all.

I use a bag bought from Academy. Holds 4 3700's and 1 deep plano box that I put my plastics in. Also has tons of pockets for tools and line and accessories. Cost me 30$. Best tackle storage system I have used yet.

I picked up on sale at a dicks earlier this year the veritas bag..... and while it is not the best bag out there, I really like it. I keep my plastics in a binder separate and carry a side bag with bug spray, flashlights, scents, ..ect. The veritas bag is great for me, the boxes it came with are big, deep, and versatile. The side pockets hold scales, lure retriever, line conditioner, and bullet weights. The front holds my terminal tackle box, and there is enough room in the main pocket that I can lay my jig box on top of that. Again not sure it would work for most as an "everything" bag, but it has been awesome for me in the role I use it for

I use a Cabela's Advanced Angler's Super Magnum. My boat has very little storage room so I have to carry my baits in a tackle bag. It's basically just large enough to carry all my hard baits I carry but I have my plastics in binders. I think it fits 12 3700 boxes so it's probably plenty big for most guys.

So from what I'm hearing, the Cabelas Advanced Angler series are good?

A bag that limits your tackle to only what you will consistently use. Less tackle = more fishing.
