Establishing some semblance of order


Hopefully your bass fishing tackle isn’t in quite the state of disarray mine was in, since mine was as far from the OCD order I like to keep things in as it has ever been before. For my spring cleaning to begin, I had to do nearly a complete clean sweep and just start over from scratch. In order to get the ball rolling so I could do a thorough inventory, I had to start with storage. I lined up my boxes and started sorting things out.

I like to mix it up with my storage options, both in the sizes and shapes of the boxes as well as the brands. I have certain Flambeau, Plano and Bass Mafia boxes along with a few others I really like. The Flambeau 4510 is by far my favorite box for storing the majority of my tackle like soft plastics, hollow body frogs and other baits I like to keep in their bulkier original packaging. The only issue is that this box doesn’t have a waterproof seal, but it does have Zerust components that help to cut down on rust.

Then there’s my Bass Mafia Bait Coffin 3700 Deep¬†that houses the majority of my mid-range to deeper-diving crankbaits. It does have a waterproof seal and can store A LOT of baits. And then there’s the Plano XL Dry Storage which I use to store spools of line and extra reels. So I took all of these boxes that I had and sorted out all my loose lures and packages until things were back in order.
