May many 5 pound smallies bless your hook. p.s. Im sure you will do great with them, just remember they really shine in clear water, if you fish murky or tannin water, use the motor oil colored ones with the chartreuse tail.

only spinning lures I use are inline (mepps are hidden in there somewhere, you can see the buck tail sticking out on one of them) and when I make a harness with blades. Also, only pack in white mr twisters which I will just tie to the outside of the tackle box with my stringer.

By increasing use of "elaz-tech" plastics, I may be able to reduce the third column to nothing. Some of those bags are combinations of lures. I don't do as much changing of lures while in a canoe though. Everything should fit into a small tackle bag, along with pliers, stringer, spreader, knife, rag, and nipper.

This is constantly evolving. I really should be able to get away with no more than 3 of each: jerkbaits, shad raps, topwaters, lipless crankbaits, spinnerbaits, in-line spinners, spoons, then maybe 1 or 2 chatterbaits, swim baits and some miscellaneous. Also 1 or 2 bags of Zeros, Zulus, Grubs, Tubes, finesse worms, Gulp leeches, 10 or 12 jigs, a variety of hooks, snaps, and weights, and a couple of leaders. 3 or 4 reels, 2 rods, spare spools, extra line. I might bring a float, but I don't usually use live bait. I also will bring crappie size tubes and jigs fwiw.

A tip for those who like their Rapalas: I bring a LOT since they weigh almost nothing, but always have needed to either divide them up into individual sections or leave them in their boxes to avoid dealing with 5-6 of them tangling together. A simple rubber band can be hooked on the lip and to the back treble, then the front and middle trebles can be coaxed to lie down along the body, slipping two of the hooks on each treble under the band. Is it perfect? No, but you can save a lot of space by stashing a lot more choices into one area, and you'll maybe only pull out one or two at a time instead of a whole handful.

That is a veritable ton of plastics. Question - how soon will you throw away a Gulp (or whatever) package after you open it? Days or weeks? Even with the ziplock, I assume the scent goes bad or they eventually dry out once opened.

Hey fishguts - maybe you can enlighten me...what kind of bait is the perch colored popper directly below the shad pattern skitter pop (2nd row down, middle). Looks like it has a clear skitterpop lip, but a wider body like a popmax from Megabass. What is it? Looks pretty hot.

Actually I prefer powerbaits over gulps. If I keep the packages sealed good enough the gulps don't dry out and I have a few a couple years old opened but resealed. If necessary I could also drop em in the containers with the liquid juice, but have used those even less...my gulp containers are going on 4 or 5 years old now :C


I prefer the 2.5" powerbaits over the 3" variety...I've got a bag of 3" powerbaits they have been in a baggie since a 1999 trip that still have the strong smell to them. Since I use the smaller size the 3 inchers rarely get used but I bring em along for backup C:

Spent some time today adding a few and taking a few out from last year...finally about ready to go. Heading out early June with a primary target of smallmouth bass...hence the excessive amount of topwaters! I'll also be bringing in some leeches for walleyes...it'll be the first time I've used leeches.

You guys take a lot more gear than I do... I just feel like I end up using so little of what I have taken along in the past that I par things down a lot now. Always bring extra blue and silver and black and silver original rapalas though. They catch fish. Hard to find a species of fish they wont catch either.

I'll bring 5 trays of lures this year. One for plastics, one for jigs, bobbers, spoons, and spinners, one for crankbaits, and two for all my son's lures. There will be inevitable duplication with my son's stuff but I want him fishing with his lures so he can catch fish and create memories from his own tackle box.
