I have a binder I bought from Academy. Its overloaded and I need to get another one or something else.
What is everyone else using?

I do not own a boat with storage compartments and tend to bank fish a lot of tanks, ponds and on other peoples boats so I move my gear around a lot.

Thats a great idea. Im looking more along the line of a similar binder or bag like i have where I can bring a large amount of my plastics along with me.

Um....zip lock bags hold WAY MORE than a notebook.



+1 here on using gallon zip lock bags. Work great. I keep brands and types separated. I can usually stuff about 10-12 fully packed bags in a dry box on my boat. I keep the "others" in a few Rubbermaid tubs that' are about 2ft x 18in x18in when I'm traveling.

Sterlite stacking boxes work great! You can get them in various sizing. I leave my plastics in original packaging.. the boxes will fit well in a back pack if you fish someone else's boat. Or they fit great in storage in the boat

Ziplock bags in a tub is a good idea too. Just browsing the net considering spending money that I probably dont really need to.
Like I said, I don't have a boat with storage really.
A tote might be easier though now that I think of it.

Do you know which quart boxes you are referring to?

I keep them in their original package and store them in a big Plano storage box. The large one carries most of the stuff I use on a consistent basis. I'll go through it once a month to weed out what I haven't been using and add in the other stuff I've purchased that month. Works well for me and keeps them organized.

I keep everything in their original packets, and toss all of those in a big ziploc bag also. Easy to see everything that way. And it stows great, forming to as little room that is left under the bench.

1 gallon slide lock bags with all worms in their original bags. I put all the bags into a larger canvas bag.

I label and categorize the bags like: tiny Senko, medium senko, large senko, Drop shot, creatures, trailers/grubs, traditional, extra large, etc.

I love the idea of binders with slide lock bags, but i have yet to find one implemented well. The bags are always cheap and you can't fit much into them when they are in a binder.

plano 3700 boxes, a separate box for

zoom worms
zoom trick and finesse worms for wacky rigging
zoom trick worms and flukes for twitch baits
zoom brush hogs
zoom lizards
rage craws
larew salt and hog craws
lake fork ring fries
yum swim baits

I only use 4 to 5 colors so i can put two packs of baits in each subcompartment. i reload after each trip. each box is labeled so they are easy to locate, no wasted time searching in the boat storage box.
