Bass Tackle Organization?



Just started fishing heavily this year, hoping to re-group for next year and hit it even harder.

I didnt start out with much tackle, but have acquired a little, and I am afraid half of it I will never use.

Before I jump into all that, I would like a way to individually organize my tackle (keep in mind this will be in a milk crate)

I am thinking of using the smaller Plano boxes (1 for spinnerbaits/buzzbaits) (1 for terminal tackle) (1 for crankbaits) (1 for topwater pop-r/frogs) (1 for jigs) (Binder for soft plastics)

After I figure this out, I need to be learned on sizes/weights of baits: I feel like my spinnerbaits are fricking obnoxiously sized.

Damn thats pretty slick. Might have to look at that soon.

I really want to cut out the stuff Im never going to use, and make room for new. What is a common buzzbait/spinnerbait weight? 1/8, 1/4?? I have a few, but they feel like im casting bricks.

I just use the clear Plano boxes to organize baits by type, then I throw all of those in a parachute bag I picked up at the military surplus store for $25.

Ive got 3 big ones now, thinking that if I went with the smaller ones I could group baits better.

I am probably wayyyy overthinking this, I have just become consumed by bass fishing since I got a kayak.

I use the big/deep ones for worm packs. I got one for flukes, one for senkos, and one for creature baits like lizards and craws.

I put ratltraps, top water, and crank sits in the thin boxes.

I have about 10-12, and a soft bag with the zipper pouches for plastics...

I'm probably not the best guy to take advice from on downsizing come to think of it... Good luck though.

I prefer Tupperware boxes for my plastics over binders. I keep them in bag they came in and organize by type, size, and color in the Tupperware boxes

Damn I like that Palo.

As I post these pictures, if anyone can help me weed out the stuff that I will probably never use, that would be great

Only 2 buzzbaits I have. Black one is a dollar cheapo, white one is a 3 blade strike king.



Larger spinnerbaits (1/2 oz maybe )



Smaller spinnerbaits



3 jigs (1 hand tied bucktail)



1/4 oz spoons



Terminal hooks and weights
