Plano makes a good panfish bag also. It comes with one 3500 plastic box, but it will hold 3. I bought two more for mine. It has 3 outside storage compartments as well. Two of the outside compartments zip closed, and the other one is a mesh material with elastic across the top. It's small enough to carry when bank fishing, but with the two extra boxes it holds plenty of tackle.
I just got one of those tackle bags. I was ordering a camp stove from Cabela's anyway and adding the tackle system nudged me just above the amount needed for the free-shipping coupon code I had. The offset of the shipping made the tackle system not quite free, but really, really cheap :-)
It looks great, I can't wait to transfer my stuff into it and start using it!
Mr. Waldman, thank you very much for the reply. That sounds like a great setup. I have one large bag, but I am thinking of going to two. Right now, I have one box slip floats, one box fixed floats, one hard baits (cranks& spoons) and one soft baits. Then two small divider boxes,with terminal tackle. Any pics would be great and thanks again.
(1) how many bags to you carry with you? (2) How do you organize your soft plastics? Once again I love your setup.
I have 2 bags, the one in the picture for live bait/float fishing (any species), and another just slightly larger (but 4 mini boxes also) that I carry all my plastics and jigheads in. It serves as both a crappie and bluegill box. If I'm fishing from my boat, the somewhat larger plastics bag is always with me since that's how I fish most of the time. However, if I'm going to fish live bait, I just toss this little bag under the console and I'm good to go with both setups. If I'm doing a shorter trip from the bank, then I simply commit that trip to one style or the other, and only bring one bag.
Soft Plastic organization: Two small divider boxes of tube bodies (what I throw most), one small divider box of curlytails & shad bodies, one small divider box of miscellaneous plastics/jigheads/spoons/etc. The bag has a front compartment that I add 3 spools of line along with a couple spare reel spools. In the side compartments I have even smaller divider boxes that house my jigheads. All this fits into the main single soft pack bag with a little bit of room to spare for things like pliers or snips, etc. Perhaps I can drag that bag out and photo its contents, also.
If I can't figure out how to catch some fish between the contents of these two small soft tackle bags, then I certainly don't deserve to catch any fish that day :) More than enough stuff to try on any given trip.
now thats organizing! perfect set up
Mr. Waldman, this is way off, what this post started out as, but here goes. After seeing your floats organized, they way they are, you got me thinking of ways to get my tackle better organized. I have some questions, as I love your, organizational skills. (1) how many bags to you carry with you? (2) How do you organize your soft plastics? Once again I love your setup.
Thanks for the clarification on removing earless shot. My wife is a hair stylist and barber (both licenses), so there are always plenty of razor blades around here, plus a straight razor or two (but you might find me on the wrong end of those if I swiped one for fishing lol).
Jim what brand of shot smaller than B you using ?I never see smaller than B in the shops I hit up.
Yea that goes for me too .I havent seen the micro shot in the shops by me and need it for a few of my floats .
Thank you Jim. It is hard to find, anything smaller than b around here. I love the Thill super shy bite float, Have been having problems, getting it to sit right, because most shot is too heavy. Thanks for the input, once again I learned something.
