I wanted to throw this out there to see if anybody has found a solution. I have two of the large worm binder bags and stay overloaded and the plastic ziplock envelopes are always tearing or wearing through. Is there a large tackle system out there that will hold all the plastics I have stuffed into the two large worm binders I have now? I thought about getting one of the larger soft tackle storages and just taking out the hard cases that come with them and somehow organize the packaged plastics in their original packages inside of that. Anybody try that and how is that working out? I want to be able to put the plastics into something that I can carry so when I fish in somebody else's boat I can just bring all my plastic with me. Suggestions/thoughts?

honestly, I carry a backpack in these situations.... and in that backpack, I use the front compartments for hooks and weights and line clippers and that sort of junk, I also have a very small plano style box that can hold that stuff in the backpack.

Then I just load whatever I want in the main backpack and go.

I used to load it down with lots of stuff... but I've wheedled that down to just what I'll use.

I can hardly lift my bin of plastics. I use two Browning Bags. They large one (storage mostly, HEAVY) and a small one for toting.

Since I basically fish with just a couple of colors I use a Walmart bag. I use an empty Zoom bag for weights and one for hooks.

I do exactly what you are thinking all the time. I have several soft side bags that I keep soft plastics in their original package in. That way you can add what you need or take out whatever you don't need for the trip, depending on the season or techniques you plan to use that day.

Get a soft side bag that has other pouches on it for other stuff like pliers, hooks in their original package, weights, and dip n dye since you are planning on taking it with you as a co-angler.

I keep a collection of the originals in their bags at the house, but I put a few of each(about 5 or 6) in a plano box for quick access. If I ever like a color I will look through my collection and see what it was to buy more. To make for more compartments I put similar colors in the same compartment of the box.

If the bass are really keying in on that particular color and I go through my supply in the plano box then ooops. Hasn't happened yet though.

I haven't seen a great set up yet but I use 3700 boxes. Dump the bags out into a slot for whatever bait and color. Of course that takes up one back box in my boat but I can grab a box of the exact type bait I want then pick a color. Works for me but I know there has to be a better way.

Okeechobee Fats Large Soft-Sided Tackle Bag, I use this went not fishing in my boat. I can fit 5 3700 boxes and a ton of gallon size bags of plastics. In my boat I had 25 of the 3700 boxes at one time. Way too much. Now some 3700 boxes (5) and small tupperware bins separated by original plastic's bags and style.

If you don't keep the plastics in their bag, they will lose their scent. and may damage your box or the bait. You can find triple layer worm bags on ebay.

I have tried a bunch of different boxes and I always go back to the gallon size Freezer Zip Lock bags that I cram bags of plastics into. I organize them by style of bait. If I am going to go in someone else's boat I just grab a few more Ziplocks and throw what I think I will need into them and throw those into a duffle bag.

I do something very similar. For instance, I'll put bags of craws into the gallon size zip lock storage bags, sorting them by styles or colors, (lights and darks), then put those bags into 2 1/2 gallon bags with a strip of duct tape labeled "craws". Less clutter and works for me.

I use two small six pack size coolers to keep mine in, although I can't tell what all is in there easily.

I've never found a good solution to storing plastics after fishing for 30 years. There's not one IMO. I now have a pegboard in the garage with most of my bags on it and then each trip I take off what I will need and leave in BPS sacks in my middle storage bin on front deck. Grab as I need them. I always have surplus in there, too, so not to run out. Then, periodically, I have to go and revise what I have in boat and hanging on the wall. What a vicious cycle!!!

I use a paper holder purchased from staples. Its pretty much a rectangular shaped box with a lid that lets me put my worm in two rows. So far so good.
