Im currently using a "worm book" and bag for all of my soft Plastics. I keep them in their original package. I am tired of the clutter of a hundred worm bags in the boat and it's not very efficient! How do you guys store your soft Baits?

I get the 14"x8"x5" clear containers from The Container store and they will hold around 40 to 50 bags of each in them. Label the top makes it very easy to see and go thru to get what I want out of them.
Senkos
Worms
craws
flukes
finesse worms

I have a large ziplock tote with six latches and a sealed lid stuffed full of soft baits. I'll grab the magic stuff of the day and throw it on top of the tackle bag. Swap out what's in there for the new magic. There's a variety of little baits for bream and crappie that stay in the bag.

I'm looking at books but haven't found one I like yet.

It all depends on if you tourn. fish or not. No one wants to get caught with what they need hanging on the wall in the shop. You will eventually get to the point that taking your confidence plastics in the boat is all you need and will fish with.

If I am going just for one day; two packages of each of those is all one needs. I carry my back pack with 30 packages of various plastics in the top. It attaches to the front pole pedestal or the back seat if you are a non boater. Everything is in there that I need for the day for that particular lake. The good thing about it is I never have to leave the deck to dig for anything. Good partners that are schooling you on catching with something you do not have will share.

Even if I fished by myself this would still be the system. It gets loaded for each trip. You just need to do a little home work on the weather, water conditions and the areas of the lake you will be fishing like shallow, mid range or deep. Then pull the plastics off the pegboard for that day and go fish them.
I fish Mexico for a whole week and the back pack is all I take; but the baits we catch them on is narrowed way down. I might take a small duffle bag with extra packages of plastics to restock the pack at mid-week.

I keep all of mine in their original packages, sorted into gallon sized Ziplock bags. Makes it really quick and easy to find what I need.

Does anyone take them out of original package and put them in Plano like boxes!? I am hesitant that they might lose their moisture/salt/scent but would love the organization of them in my boat if they were each labeled by type. Creatures/senkos/crawls/big worms etc.

I did it that way in olden days. Worked fine. Nowadays we have different plastics and different scents/tastes. I keep them in original bags to preserve them.

I have the worm book and while it organizes well, it is a pain to get to them. I finally just started taking small bags that my drills and things have come in and load them up with plastics by categories. Didn't cost me anything and works well. I'll probably invest in some small tubs to do the same thing and organize them better.
