    Welcome to the BOC! I use a back pack for a tackle box. I have everything organized in those plastic trays. I dont bass fish but I suppose you can put that in there too. If you really feel the need to.:smile2: Its easy to carry and can hold ALOT of stuff.

    A back pack is a good idea. You can buy those individual plastic organizers at wal mart and load up a back pack and carry alot of stuff and keep your hands free to carry alot of rods and other things with. Would be a great asset especially if your a bank only fisherman.

    andrew i use 2 boxes one for general purpose (bass, crappie, gill,s ) other is for cat,s only . i got my cat box from a yard sale for about 2 bucks if i remeber right . my general box i bought at a yard sale for 5 bucks . my cat box has 3 trays that move with the lid and my sinkers are in the bottom tray to stablize it when open ( learned the hard way) and hooks and swivels are kept on top tray. it,s not a very big box i also keep stringers in there and i have a very long set of pistol grip needle nose pliers in there for removing hooks that are swallowed. those are really handy got those for like 3 bucks at a tool sale there in greencastle armory . i hope this helps you i hope i didnt bore you with too much info . have a good one and catch some cats.:smile2:

    I like to use a 5 gal. bucket for all my stuff. I'll use smaller boxes for hooks and stuff and small jars for sinkers, and a coffee can with lid for scales and cameras.

    When I started getting the boat set up, I wanted to make best use of space. I use two sizes of the water proof boxes that most sporting good places sell. In the smaller size, I can get 4 of the plastic divided trays standing on edge. The larger ones will also hold 4 of the bigger size trays on edge. The seat box I built will hold 5 boxes across. It holds everything from hooks, weights, floats, spare line, folded lake maps, small assorted things like spare reel parts, weather radio, etc.

    I bank fish so it is easier to carry everything. The one I use is a single strap messenger type bag from Wally world. Plastic containers from around the house when Catfish is not looking.:roll_eyes:

    I personally use a backpack with lots of pockets.

    If you are looking for an actual tackle box, you can not beat the Plano 777

    Good luck

    I have a Cat tackle box which doubles as my Red Drum box ( I live near the coast)
    I have a Bass/Speckled trout/Flounder box
    I have a Crappie/Panfish box
    I have a "day on the fishing pier at the coast" box
    I have an offshore King/Cobia/Dolphin box
    I have a "you can borrow this stuff" box
    I have a "quickie stuck in the truck toolbox w/ a Zebco 33 and rod for those hmmmm wonder if there's fish in that hole" box.
    I have a "fishing tools" ( scales, knife, pliers, dehooker, hook sharpener, reel lube, line pick, screwdriver, light, batteries etc. go with me everywhere box.
    And I still have stuff in plastic sorting boxes, cardboard boxes, trays, baskets and all over the table in my workshop...LOL!!!!!
    I have found it easier to have duplicates of some things in different boxes is easier than trying to carry it all............
    and you think you have a problem??????
