    i am the worlds worst at haveing boxes bags etc.
    my wife tells me i have a box for a box:eek: .

    she may just be right.

    ive shot myself in the foot on this now as i have misplaced my (box) of
    hooks for cats.

    it was a last minute change in plans and i misplaced the plano compartment box that has about a hundred differant sizes and styles of catfish hooks.
    circles bait holders treble kahles you name it .
    i finally decided to get this plano box like the one i got my son and see if this will be better suited than my other 3 dozen boxes i get and decide i don't like.
    i guess i'm as bad an old woman with a bunch of purses in her closet.
    the plano i got this time is called the 4x system its a tall box with a narrow design and has 4 boxes /trays that pull out the front and a larger compartment in the top. got it at wally world.
    i have a kazillion weights in the bottom tray that makes the box almost untippable.
    now i gotta buy new hooks as i cant find the other box.
    i really am a loser LOL

    My girlfriend found the perfect sulution for me. It's a plastic Stanley rolling tool caddie. It has a top that seperates from the rolling bottom. I keep all of my prepaired bait's(Wicked Sticky, Danny's, & Rusty's) in the bottom, and in the top I have 3 Plano storage boxes. One strictly for weights(Splits, 1-6 oz no-rolls & Bank sinkers), and the other two carry all of my hooks, Looper Rigs, and barrel swivels. On top of that is a removable "shelf" that holds my unused Looper Rigs, leather glove, rags, knives, pliers and Flash lights. On top is two small compartments that are perfect for holding batteries, bells, or glow sticks. On the outside, there are two small velcro compartments that I keep my small screwdrivers in, along with another small flashlight. Your price you may ask...$29.95 at Wallyworld.

    It's great for the car, and I can take the top off and just have it with me if I go out in a boat with someone, or I can roll it down to my favorite lake that's a quarter mile walk from the lot.

    It supprised me when I got it last Christmas, but now I don't know what I'd do with out it.

    Man I know what you mean, Ive got a home tacklebox, a boat tackle box, the car tackle box that is the only one I seem to use, along with my archery tackle box, muzzleloader box, rifle and shotgun boxes, a reel tub and more.
    Whew was that all one sentence.

    My favorite would have to be my flambeau box that I mainly use. Its got a flip up top for room for knife, bait, water or whatever. The bottom holds three of those slideout containers, so I can take those out if I want bait below and drink in the fliptop upper portion. Its also got little slots i put pliers and scissors, I can get these without opening the box at all.
    Also on the very top there are two small slide in pocket boxes. All this and I use it as a seat, and it has held up better than any other box.

    It has to be one of the best presents Ive ever recieved. :) Totally unexpected, and now Id hate to lug any other box around the bank.

    Ive had many plano boxes and they just dont seem to hold up. Ive noticed plano has plastic pieces that hold up the trays where flambeau has metal pieces. Flambeau also seems to have thicker plastic, I can sit on my flambeau but Ive never had a plano that will take the abuse of being used as a seat.

    Cant find my digi cam, but I looked up some flamb boxes in cabelas catalogue.
    Mine is a front loading box, you might check these out. They seem to have a new line called Zerust. one is the 8050 Brush Guard and theres another called 7045 Night-Ranger Lighted tackle box.

    A lighted tackle box.
    How cool is that, if it works?
    You should at least get a better idea of them anyway.

    Had some real good pics and a write up in the old library on the bag system I use. Can't seem to get in there and retrieve it. I've found that travelin lite and organization is the key to success. Everyone knows what they use on just about every cattin trip ya go on. Trim your load down to that, organize it and take it.
