Hello everyone,
Been a while since I posted. Been busy with deer season and holiday. Plus I kinda got discouraged when my boat broke down this summer. But, now I am starting repairs and getting stuff ready for spring.
Last summer while is was cruising across the lake, the lid of my tackle box must have caught just the right amount of wind because it flew off and wizzed past my head into the lake, unable to be found. So, now Iím looking for a new tackle box. Is anyone aware of any super good deals going on right now? Iím still trying to decide if I want a box or a bag, but Iíd like to look at both and compare my options. I didnít know if there were any great after Christmas sales going on anywhere. If anyone knows of any, please let me know. Thanks!
Jesse

love this thing. Have probably 75-80 bags of plastic in the bottom and all the jig heads and terminal tackle in the trays above. Leave it on the deck all the time and does not leek.

I like a top loading bag for versatility and Cabela's green advanced angler bags have held up the best for me over time. I've had a red BassPro bag for several years but the material has torn in several places and the zippers have a mind of their own.

Been there, lost a 3 day old cover for my fishfinder last week. Had just put in a new tach and was so enamored by playing with it that I didn't even notice the wind sweep it out of the boat.

I have a couple Plano bags, one is empty with line, bagged soft plastics, and other junk in it. The other holds 5 plano trays, I keep them below deck so the wind doesn't bother them.

I personally like the bags that hold the trays. I switch them out for what I think I might need for that day. I can take my bag and then add or remove the trays I want. Then if the bag wears out, just get another bag the trays work the same. I have also pulled just one tray and took that before looking to go lightweight.

Though I've both would rather have the bag. The same thing happen to me other day. The lid was not lock down and open up on the highway. Lost lot of bags lures that flew out didn't know it was open until stopped to get gasoline. By this time to late scatter bags of lures a long ways.

I just put my lures in Plano boxes and keep them in a big hatch in the boat. Always loaded and ready.

I've had one of these in Magnum size for several years and love it. Lots of room for boxes and storage.

I use a hatch in the boat but have a small travel bag I take when I’m invited in another boat. The hard Plano boxes that take the trays are nice but don’t fit the way I do things. A bag has worked well in the past but it had a rubber bottom and would hold water if rained on. The white Plano boxes are all over my boat and shed and I take what I need for the day, so whatever I use will accommodate that line of thought. If I had to remove my gear when the trip was done I would have a good sized bag.

Over the years I think I have tried every configuration known to man from the hard boxes with 3700 plano boxes storage to the large soft side bags and now I have finally ended up using 2 med soft side bags and for my plastics I have one of the zip up Berkley wallet style binders.

I went with 2 of the Ike Flambeau bags on my last switch. I like the flaps which fold down acting as a rain cover and the squick connects on the corners which when using the top handle eliminates the pressure applied to the zipper picking up the bags weight.

Sounds like a lot but it actually makes it easier in the boat as I know what is in each bag and it is easy to grab the smaller bag I need to access the right box rather than have to always fool with a big bag.

Also the bait binder works well as that is the most accessed bag and the binder keeps everything organized, easy to get a fresh bait out.

Out of everything I have tried this system works the best and yes I do find I sometimes switch out the storage boxes depending on where and how I will be fishing that day.

At least for me I find the multiple smaller bags to be easier to work with while I am out on the water.325983325984325985

A lot us of own the bags. A little clue might help every one I keep a garbage bag in the bag if starts to rain slip the garbage bag over the tackle bag. Keeps it dry.
