WHERE TO KEEP EVERYTHING!!

Recommended Posts

There is NO room whatsoever in my tackle box for my plastics. I was wondering a cheap but affective way of getting your plastics around with you while you fish.

Thanks

I use a backpack

Yep. I throw everything in a backpack. Including food and a drink or 2.

I just went to wally world for 6$ and got a plano box that is perfect for all my plastics. Fits a ton of them and has a nice cary handle. I grab that and my small FLW gear bag that has 4x medium planos and 1 small double sided I use for terminal tackle. Messing with sealable bags thrown into a bigger bag is just unorganized to me.

    Get an duffle bag.  The size of the bag should depend upon how many plastics you have.

There are several variations and brands,

but this is THE solution:

Really wish I hadn't clicked the link.  On the bright side, I got some more sweet gear that I don't need on the way!

I use two FTO speed bags, a small and a double.  Each has a matching size Plano box with the hooks and weights that go with those baits.

I like to keep all of my plastics in the bags they come in, so I have a few tupperware type containers that I label the top of. One for worms, one for creatures, one for trailers, etc....I carry them in a regular tackle bag.

I know this isn't the point of this thread, but...I have recently been doing a lot of wade fishing... And my favorite tacklebox for this? Believe it or not, it's a simple pair of multi pocketed Cargo Shorts. I can go with one rod, a pack of hooks and weights, and about fifteen bags of plastics in my various pockets... ;)

Cargo shorts rule.

I keep all of my plastics in 2 BPS Double Sided Large Binders.  I keep all of my plastics in their original bags then just place them into the Double Sided Binders zip lock bags.  This way I can easily store more then 1 bag of plastics per zip lock bag.  Lets me squeeze more into each binder this way.

Later, ;)

I knew a guy in Wasington who carried a six pack in his backpack and a small fly box in the pocket.  He caught a lot of fish and had a lot of fun.  Maybe we should carry more beer and less lures!

It really depends on where I'm going and how much plastic I'm carrying. I might put a couple of bags in my pocket, the knapsack works well most times, as do those plastic totes. For larger and salt water ones on the boat, I have one of those plastic cleaning product tote things. They have 2 compartments and a handle. Keeps everything in one place and out of the way.  I have been known to throw them in a trader joes bag or such. Organization is not one of my strong points though, fishing, yes....

I keep them in the orig package then in gallon zip locks labeled for worms, craws, flukes etc. Put them all in an old case for a laptop (it was free), a back pack would probably work good too, but i'm cheap.

This post is 8 yrs old. @thinkingredneck keeps dragging up old topics Lol I try to check the date when I see a new thread to see if it's one someone brought up from the grave.....and I'm sure it's fine to do that but I check so I don't get confused.

I carry lots of baits with me. I have two 9606 split roof boxes one for topwater baits, one for crankbaits. My third box is for weedless smaller split roof box,  my next tackle box is for plastics. I was carrying seven tackle boxes, then down to five, now down to four. It's hard to leave anything home. Now I purchased Plano 3400 plastic boxes to line them up in the bottom of the 9606 split roof boxes. Maybe I expanded too much.

 

on the motorcycle I carried those velcro bait raps and a telescopic rod with a zebco reel under the seat.
