Worm Storage? Bag Or Box?

Recommended Posts

Do you guys keep your soft plastic ribbon tails and trick worms and such in the bags they came in in your tackl bag or boxes?

Keep them in the bags they came in. This keeps them fresh and keeps the scent on them and your scent off of them.

 

Putting them in the box can get messy real fast.

 

And if you want to re-scent them, just open the bag and spray in the scent and close it up.

 

I often drop in other lures in there too before using them so they can pick up some scent too- if it helps any.

I use the plano water proof boxes for all of my tackle... This way it is much easier to see all the colors and options while still keeping the bait nice and fresh... This system IMO is the most efficient method I have seen, especially if you bring a large amount of tackle...

Awesome. I keep them in original bags, but saw some folks in other posts say they have dedicated boxes for plastics. So thought I'd ask

I keep them In the original bags and take what I need from the fishing closet and place the bags in the side pockets of my tackle bag. I also put a few bags of what I expect to start with in the mesh front outside pocket.

I do have dedicated boxes for plastics but I keep all of the in their original packaging. Within the boxes I sort them by type of worm, flukes & minnows, craws, frogs, and tubes. I don't really sort by color but I have a good idea where everything is so it isn't hard to get to.

I keep mine in plano boxes and label them. Craws,flukes,senkos,beavers,ect it lets me easily tell what I'm getting low on and need to buy. I can also grab the exact box I need while fishing and don't waste time digging around in compartments. I also take 2 boxes and create an assortment of go to stuff that I'll be using so I have it ready and within reach. For bank fishing I just make up 3 boxes with various things for the day and this will be what I do for kayak fishing this year too. Keep it light.

I do the same.

I have to bring everything in one bag if entered in a tournament and having mutiple bags doesn't make sense.

I use the plano boxes with the permanent vertical dividers that I store vertically in the bag and label as:

* Stick... Senkos, sluggo's, trick worms, cut r's, etc.

* Creature...beavers, brush hogs, tubes, lizards, etc.

* Swim...big ez, flukes, skinny dippers, etc.

Another box for frogs, top water, cranks/jerks/traps, and terminal tackle.

I use one of these for all of my Strike king prefect plastics/rage baits.  For my Senkos, I basically use just one color, baby bass, so I keep all of my packs of those in one large ziplock bag.  Any other plastics that I only have a pack or two of, are put in a plastic grocery bag for now.

Original bag, but store them in a box and when i go out I put them into there own separate bag to carry.

Unless you know what can mix with I wouldn't mix. I have put plastics into a of their own to find them melted mess...

I just picked one of these up from TW. I like it, but not in love with it for plastic storage.

Yeah, Its kind of bulky.  Once I figure out what I am going to be using for the day I leave those packs out and toss the box back in the storage compartment.  I really wish there were more slots for the dividers so I can organize it a bit better.

Ultimately I would like to have one container per style, but my collection of softs isn't large enough to require more.

I saw another guy using these for plastics. Seemed like a pretty nice box and efficient system.

I keep them in the original bags inside an extra large BPS worm bag.   I would love to replace it but they don't make the model I have anymore.  I can't find one big enough.

These are a pretty good idea, but at $25 a piece, you could probably save a bunch of money with some good tubberware containers and thick pieces of cardboard stuck in there for dividers. Just a thought.

Not sure where you seen em for $25, but we only paid I think $11-12 each for ours (I bought one and my dad bought one)

I'm using a binder now and don't like it. It's organized but difficult to use. I want one of those zerust boxes

I keep mine in original packaging and as soon as the wife isn't paying attention I will be buying a plano kvd speedbag worm file. It holds 45 bags according to the TW website. Trying my hardest to be a co-angler this year.

Both.

 

Some things I put in 3700 like tubes lizards, and some other baits.  Things like Rage Craws, Menace, etc I have them in the original packaging then in a box like above.  This helps keep them organized.
