Professional bass angler Justin Lucas outlines his simple color-coded tackle box management system. It allows him to immediately identify which boxes contain lead-based baits (think jigs and ChatterBaits), topwater lures, all other hard baits, as well as his soft plastics.


Additionally, Lucas explains how he further refines each box’s organization based on lure weight and why clear boxes are his go-to over solid-colored tackle boxes. For Lucas, tackle organization is a simple home-based task that provides measurable time savings on the water.
