It all looks good to me. I find that I buy stuff other people show me and so it starts to accumulate, but it all has caught fish at one time or another.

We don't have many deep spots around here so 90 percent of my crank baits are 200 series baits, meaning they run 2 feet deep at most.

Keep those spooks for sure . Those are as good of a big fish bait as you'll find . If you can swing another rod and reel I'd try a medium action seven footer with a fast tip . It'll be a little better for those cranks and spinners . Especially the crankbaits you will see your fish losses cut in half if not more .

Ok that makes sense now. I was reading about Bandit 100 and 200 series cranks today. Just overwhelmed with the wall of colors when I saw it.

I love 100 and 200 series bandits . They are some fish catching little bastards . I like the KVD square bills a lot and the lucky strike Rick clunns . Both of those square bills are great . I have about 10 of the nadir square bills and have never caught anything on them .

Thanks again Ray...

What makes the square bills different than the traditional ones?

Just in general. I have one small square bill. I just dont know when to say "i need to use a square bill crank right now instead of a regular one"

Me personally I use square bills in shallow water with cover like lay down , cypress knees , or even old pier pilings . If there is milfoil or hydrilla sitting 3 ft below the surface ill burn a square bill over the too of it . Most will only run about 3 ft deep so it works really good for that . They bounce off cover really well and still look natural when they bounce off something . They have a distinct wobble also that the fish love

Square bill is for bouncing off of wood and structure.

Round bill for weeds and mud.

I have mine organized by bait type but thinking about changing to location specific organization.

For example. Fishing thick weeds and grass I want all soft plastics, a frog or two, and some buzzbaits. But my buzzbaits are with all the other top water baits with trebbles I will never use in thick grass.

Open deep water some heavy plastic rigs, some heavy spinners, and cranks and spoons. All stored separately now.

I guess if you have a boat and plan to keep em stored in your boat by type is good but if fishing sporadically different bodies of water with buddies it seems helpful to have go bags for each type of environment .

I really like that idea. I might try to put that on paper tomorrow and see if I can make it work in the kayak.

I'm no yak fisherman but I think you would do great with a worm binder and Plano KVD tackle bag . It's not huge like some of the others but will still hold s lot of stuff

BP, I fish yaks and small boats almost exclusively. I have one large soft side tackle box which I use as storage. This serves to hold all of my baits when not in use.

I have a smaller soft side with 3 smaller clear trays that I modify for each trip. One tray I use for terminal tackle, and single hook baits (spinner baits, buzz baits and frogs). The second box is used for trebble hook baits (top water, crank baits, and jerk baits). The last box is used for jigs and chatterbaits. The large pocket is used to store soft plastic baits.

I have found this system to be ideal. I don't clutter up small water craft but still know whee everything is located at all times.

My larger storage tackle box is similarly organized. As such I know where to go to exchange baits based on the upcoming trip.
