  • How do you organize your tackle???

    I'm looking for some sort of a system to get my tackle organized. I have everything in one of those big plastic bins right now. It's about 24" x 16" and it's overflowing. I like all kinds of fishing -- inshore, offshore trolling for kings, bottom fishing. My regular tackle box can't begin to hold everything I use and to use it for a particular trip means taking stuff out and replacing it with other stuff for the targeted species. Any ideas?

    I have a big orange waterproof box that I keep all my offshore fishing tackle in.. I pre-rig everything for bottom fishing and live bait drifting. They are in a type of sealable bag, similar to ziploc but much thicker. I label them such as snapper, trigger, live bait drift, etc..

    As far as inshore fishing, I have a large Plano tackle organizer that i take with me. I have had/kept the same (basically) tackle box for years and I know where everything is.

          One box does not do it for me. I have one what I call a rigging box with spools of line for leaders, swivels, snaps, fish finder slides, beads and such. One box for sinkers. One box with a variety of floats. One of these https://www.planomolding.com/fishing...-tackle-system
          with a few extra of these https://www.planomolding.com/fishing...ustrictor-3700 With different types of lures that I change out depending on the type of fishing I am doing. And another box or two with other items needed for fishing...Charlie

            A bucket or three with with five gallon bucket rubber cup holders, some mesh lure bags for plugs and skirts, Stanley organizers from Home Depot for bottom stuff, a bunch of old tackle boxes, whatever other piece of plastic I might find lying around! Can you say scattered??

              2 rows of holes, each row has 16 holes. Couple holes in bottom so I can spray them down and it drains.

                  Bought a bunch of lure bags off Ebay for trolling lures and whatnot. Got a big yellow bag from Bass Pro that I cram the lure bags, pliers, etc in for each trip. Usually has what I need. Also pre-tie leaders and hooks, loop them and secure with Scotch tape They go in zip-locs sorted by size.

                  The big yellow bag makes it easy to forget everything at once. Yep, I've done it.

                    What worked for me was getting as orange waterproof box, as KMac pointed out. It saved me a ton of space because I can carry many more things in 1 box instead of several.

                    You should be able to get one yourself, they are not too expensive and def worth getting.
                    I love sailing and I sure like big boats! I was always passionate about renting dubai yachts, that's a dream of mine.

                      I have a great way to store stuff on my boat. It’s under $70 and it works 2X better than I hoped it would.

                      Plano rolling work station 826-000.

                      I keep trays in the bottom section, tackle in the drawers, and knives, misc in the top. It’s on wheels so you can move it wherever you want it. I have had mine for 5+ years and it’s loaded with a lot of stuff and it is still in perfect shape. It costs a fraction of a custom tackle center and if you break it it’s only $60 to replace it.

                        I have one of these I call my bitch bag.
                        it has my most common hooks and jigs
                        easy to throw in the bucket, boat, on the bridge, canoe etc

                        One of these just for lead and all my hooks and sabikis for saltwater

                        I have a soft bag for trollers

                        mesh ditty bag for leader material

                        Ive downsized from big tackle boxes considerably
                        im much more efficient this way.

                          I use Plano in milk crates. They fit perfect and are easy to store. The Plano are bone dry too!

                              I have a West Marine blacktop tackle "box". Holds 4 Plano boxes. Replaced the standard clear boxes with the water tight ones. Holds hooks and little crap. Have a box that was meant to hold like ten smaller boxes of photos/recipe cards. Have different hooks in there.
                              Duplicate lures or ones I don't use much stay in Craftsman box

                              on the boat, black Bart micros I put in normal Plano. I cut out some of the dividers to allow for leaders.

                              For hooks, swivels, little stuff I have a couple of these
