How to Organize a Tackle Box for Saltwater Fishing

Learn how to organize a fishing tackle box from expert Captain Layne Wagner in this saltwater fishing video from Howcast.


Hi, my name is Captain Layne Wagner of Hawk One Charters. I've been a captain for over 40 years. I've fished all over the world and now I'm up here in Long Island, New York. You can find me online at Hawk One Charters, I'll be talking to you today about saltwater fishing. An important part of fishing is organisation, saves you time and when you need your stuff you know where it is. Now days they've come up with these neat plastic containers that keep your tackle dry and organized. So let's say we're going stripe bass fishing and we want our artificial lures, there we go, everything's got a place, and every place has its thing. There's more here, these are all stripe bass. There we go, say we need a buck tail. Lure, here they are, different weights, the light, to medium, to heavy; to real heavy. Then from there, let's say I need sinkers, I need diamond chicks, I need other kinds of chicks, my weights. Everything is separate, and organized. And to stay, we have to snap and close, and then they all fit in a nice dandy tackle bag, where they all stack. These are called stackers. You just put them in, zip it up, take it over your shoulder and go. Very simple, this is called a soft tackle bag, not like the old hard tackle boxes. And with these you can carry ten times the amount of tackle that you used to be able to carry.
