Tackle bag question

Postby Rodster14 » Thu Apr 20, 2017 5:33 pm

I currently have a BPS 370 stalker tackle bag. I am considering downsizing a bit to something like a Cabela's large bag to conserve space (since I don't use most of what is in my tackle bag anyway). Also, has anyone used a front loading system? What are your thoughts?

I don't really care for front load bags. I think they take up more floor space in a boat and are harder to access, and generally don't find them as flexible as top loading bags, particularly bags that hold the 3700s vertically. YMMV

Do yo store your plastics in a worm binder that fits inside your tackle bag or in a Plano open storage box?

I've had a big yellow BPS boat bag for years, and it hasn't even blinked. I fit everything in, including lunch and rain gear etc. All zippers/handles still intact, has one interior mesh pocket in the lid. Fits all the little extras. Leave it open, dump your broken plastics/line/wrappers etc in to it all day and you don't have to clean up the boat. It's simple, rugged, easily accessible and entirely modular as to what fits in it, since it's just a big duffle bag with a protected bottom.
Set hard and set often

I've been eyeing the Simms Challenger duffle bags or the new Bass mafia one. They seem really huge, the simms in size L can fit 8 3700 boxes and S fits 3 .. I think? and the bass mafia one fits up to 10.

I just wish there was a duffle style bag that can fit like 6 boxes, a good medium sized one.

There is a large zipper area in the back that holds tons of bags of plastics. I also put them in 3700 and load them up front.

I use boxes, binders, and big ziplock bags. That's one of the big advantages of a top loading bag: they're much more versatile at holding a variety of different types and sizes of containers.

The Bass Mafia bag will only fit 9 boxes, and that is with the slide out handle mechanism removed and it still just barely closes. It will not do 10, even modified, the roller wheels place the last box too high and it will not zip shut. They are huge bags. The BPS 370 was my go to "little" bag for years.
I like TD-Z's
