Last night I was going through my tackle box trying to get it a little better organized. The problem was that I had hooks and weights spread out over different section of the tackle box. The top of the box is mostly lures and a few weights and hooks. With the bottom of the box being an assortment of different hooks, weights and other supplies.
Some of the lures in the top of the tackle box include rattle traps, crank baits, beetle spins, and a couple of tiny torpedoes.
After looking through my tackle for a little while, I realized that I fish for about 3 different types of fish – perch, bass and catfish.
For perch I use split weight and small hooks. To organize my tackle box for perch fishing gear, I bought a small double sided container. On one side of the container goes hooks, on the other side goes split weights.
Since perch stay in shallow water, I try to keep a small stock of bobbers (corks).
For bass fishing I use artificial bait, like worms and lizards. A bottom section of the tackle box is dedicated to artificial worms, on top of the worms is a small double sided container like what I keep the perch fishing stuff in. In this container hooks go on one side and weights go on the other side.
