Tackle bags, such as those manufactured by Bass Pro Shops and others, provide six to 10 clear tackle boxes, as well as pockets for sunglasses, shears, wire cutters, pliers, knives, leader wheels, hooks, gloves and more. I suggest creating optimum tackle-box mixes and tailoring your inventory for the upcoming day's trip. At day's end, portable tackle bags pack up neatly and take up minimal space for the ride home. If you have built-in tackle stowage on board, portable bags are a welcome addition and give you more of the right stuff to successfully leverage sudden angling opportunities. Waterproof models are worth the premium charged for them.
