    I used to think tackle box, the bigger the better.... That was before I started mostly catfishing. Now a couple of trays to hold hooks, crappie floats or foam ear plugs, swivels and weights is all i need. I can put the trays in a backpack and then have room for line and my other supplies. It's so much easier than a tackle box. Look on Page 2 of the member library area.... There's good information on this subject in there. Katfshn50 has done an outstanding job on this subject.

    for catfishin i use a back pack i got from marlboro and load all my hooks,sinkers, and stuff like that in one of those trays, and that leaves room or sodas and camera, scale, and snacks but the best thing is that it frees up my hands to carry poles and bait bucket, now my bass gear is a big back breakin box:confused2:

    My boat IS my main tackle box, and everything else is replenished from it. I also carry a med. sized tackle bag in the tool box of my truck, and supply my fishing chair, and pants pockets from it. My fishing chair I got from Gander Mountain. It has enough pockets to accommodate 2 people for several outings, a built in cooler, and also converts to a backpack to free up you hands to carry a bait bucket.
