I'm a reasonably organized guy, at least with my tackle. Most all is in Plano boxes that are labeled. Soft plastics are in bins that are labeled.

What do you do for hooks? I'd prefer to keep them in original packaging and dislike the zip binders. Any Plano boxes that work?

I just bought the plano 3741 waterproof utility box from academy for this exact reason. It's deeper than the regular plano boxes and I plan to store my hooks/tungsten/pitching/shakey heads/swing heads etc. in the original packages. I'm tired of removing everything from the packages and putting it all together.

I keep hooks in a Plano 3700 sized box. Don't know the model number. It has a rubber gasket and three compression latches. Keeps stuff really dry and doesn't let the little hooks slip over the dividers and run away. Lol.

I've got one of the newer rust stopper 3700 boxes. I can't remember the brand. They are great for my crank baits but for my hooks it's not so good. They end up all over the place and mixed up. Need a new hook box.

One thing to try is putting them on a safety pin. Just slip the eyes on a safety pin and latch it. Keeps the hooks of the same size together and keeps them from going all over the place if they aren't in the package.

The viagra pill bottles will keep the hooks from bending as well!
