Tips On Organizing Your Bass Fishing Tackle

Aug 17, 2007
The difference between a successful angler and an unsuccessful one usually comes down to something as simple as managing their bass fishing tackle.

Well organized tackle could mean the difference between "snagging" a bass lurking in your vicinity or the fish simply losing interest in what you have to offer simply because you've spent the last half hour looking for a hook, weight to just unraveling line. You know the feeling, by the time you've got a line back in the water the moment has passed!

Organizing Your Bass Fishing Tackle

As a child, I often used to watch in wonderment at my old man before every fishing excursion; he was so organized that there wasn't an item in his tackle box which he wasn't aware of. He always spent time before we left organizing everything neatly into an arrangement so when he needed it, he didn't have to waste valuable time looking for it.

To be honest, it drove me mad at the time because it seemed like a chore but years later, I've now realized how important managing this area really is.

Organize Your Fishing Day

One of the biggest mistakes anglers can make is to over prepare for a day on the water. What do we mean by this? Simply taking along equipment which doesn't fit in with the day's requirements.

If you are just going out on the water for a few hours or a even a day, it's not likely you are going to need every piece of equipment you own. Taking what you need means cutting down on unnecessary bulk and weight and means you can move around a little more freely. It also means when you need a piece of tackle in a hurry then you'll get to it reasonably quickly.

If you are traveling away for a few days then yes, you'll need to cover most angles which means a different variety of bass fishing tackle is required. A good tip for long fishing excursions is to take a mainstay tackle box containing most of your gear plus a smaller storage system, something like a wallet or smaller soft binder. Put what you need in the smaller container and just re-stock it when you need to.

Organizing bass fishing tackle just makes sense. Two questions you can ask yourself when placing it in a storage area are: is everything going to be easily accessible and will I be able to locate what I need in a hurry? If it's well separated from each other as to avoid frustrating entanglement, then there is no reason you should have those nightmarish moments when everything is mashed up like a spaghetti dish.

The Importance Of Storage

While the storage system is vital in good bass fishing tackle management, just as important are the various tackle organizers available on the market. Hooks in hook organizers, weights in weight organizers, baits in bait organizers...you get the picture. Organizers are ideal in larger storage systems such as the bulkier tackle boxes or simply keeping them in an area of the house such as a garage away from the children.

From traditional tackle boxes to the new soft binder storage units, managing tour tackle shouldn't be a chore; it should be a pleasure particularly if you are serious about your bass fishing.
