Default What tackle box are you using??

I'm looking for something very minimal to keep my basic fishing tackle in. The one I have is falling apart. Thinking maybe a couple of waterproof plano containers in a soft side waterproof bag of some sort. What do you guys use?

I got a small Plano bag with 4 containers at walmart for like $19.99 or $29.99. Can't remember. Worked great until I started getting more.

Now I use a large calcutta bag that has 4 containers and a lot of pouches. I have all my shark leaders I've made, crimpers, box for weights and swivels, another for just hooks and one for lures. It holds everything I need for sharking, boat, etc.

For you tho, check walmart or tackle shops. Most come with containers and pouches.

I use 4 plano "trays" that I have seperated for different types of fishing and I will stick one or two of those in my backpack with line, pliers, knifes, water, ect. Really easy, all fits on my back, plenty of space.

Default east german packs

http://www.majorsurplus.com/East-Ger...ck-P16726.aspx

i use these... they are cheap water proof and built like a tank. I believe in using military surplus anytime I can. Half wore out military gear to me is always better than brand new from Walmart. The ones they sent me are brand new made of the same material as our duffle bags. Even a better deal when they go for a 5 spot apiece. Add some plano plastic boxes you probably already own and your ready to go. Also makes it nice when you have a species ready bag no more shifting items around for a day fishing. just grab and go

I have Plano, Cabelas, Orvis, BassPro that hold the standard boxes. Anything that is fabric will eventually die.

Also have several of the plastic tackle boxes, but find them them clumsy.

if you get a bag just make sure you spray some silicone on the zippers to keep them from corroding, or you can use some chapstick.

I gave up on the' tackle box idea and now have a variety of bags with plano trays that I just grab n go as needed. Have one for surf, one for crankbaits, one for hooks n sinkers etc. Some of my bags are old (really old) racquetball bags, hiking backpacks etc. I know which bags to grab for inshore redfish/speck fishing, which for Bass, which for small stream, which for offshore etc. Have a small one with spools of leader material, braid scissors, nippers, crimpers etc that always goes with...just don't find that big hard plastic tackle boxes to go well in boats or kayaks
