Recommended Posts

As of now all my fishing is from the bank and iv been looking for a backpack style tackle bag but havn't really found much. What backpacks would you recommend?

Backpack is the way to go....I got one for my shore fishing but now i dont leave by tackle in my boat, the backpack is what comes with me there too...I easily just reload it with what i need for wherever i am going.

This is what i have: Calcutta backpack

Mine is a couple years old and actually has 4 boxes and not three.

Here is a new model just put out by Shimano, though a bit more expensive (these bags are worth it though for all the stuff you can comfortably carry around!)

Shimano backpack at TW (wont let me post a link - hope this much is ok)

I found the shimano backpacks and like the large size but the price is a little high. I found a video on youtube when i was searching and found a review for a spiderwire backpack

but havnt found it for sale anywhere.

Try Googling spiderwire backpack and you'll find sellers.

Backpack is the way to go...

To each his own. I greatly prefer a shoulder bag for easy one-hand access to whatever I need while holding a bass.

Me too, I actually use a creel bag and it fits my needs perfectly

check an army-navy store for an ALICE pack, they hold about 4 or 5 3700 boxes plus some extra room.

I agree , a vest is the way to go , that's all I need when fishing from the bank , you'll be surprised with how much you can stuff in a vest. B)

I use the BPS XPS Stalker Tackle Back Pack and can't say enough good things about it. Except the new color scheme. Blue and orange just looks bad.

I like the small chest packs, though some complain they get in the way.

I like a "sling bag" that JanSport makes which they call the "Air Cisco."

By comparison to traditional backpacks, I think it's much easier to put on and take off and has a velcro strap for adjustment (and also for extricating yourself from the bag if you choose to do it this way). It has two main compartments which are nice for organizing gear . I use them to separate my creature and crawfish baits from my worms and jerkbaits but obviously one can personalize it to suit their own system. It probably doesn't hold as much as some bags or backpacks but I find it very handy. And the zippers are not prone to tearing at the seams under weight like some bags/packs. My only complaint is that it only comes in black and get's pretty warm in the summer.

I second this. I have the same bag but in the gray color trimmed with red. Here is a link to the bag that we are referring to: http://www.basspro.com/XPS-Stalker-Tackle-Bag/product/10221672/112339

I don't know what they were thinking when they changed to the blue and orange, but it is still the same bag.

I couldn't be more happier!!
