    RL,
    You might want to try a soft, waterproof bag with boxes inside. I have had great luck with them. Great way to keep things organized. Cabelas has a full line of them.

    RL your right everything is made over sea these days. I've gone or graduated to what KELSON advised one main water proof bag with assorted boxes were you can mix and match plastic trays/I have G-loomis bag with 8 units per box. one bag for just Salmon/one for fresh water/one for sturgeon,my fresh water box is so full I've gone to small zipper compartment type unit to hold special hardware one for wobblers/one for Silver gang trolls/one for brass gang trolls/one for down rigger clips and hardware/I am extremely organized I have boxes of just Hookum rollers 10 rollers everything pretied with each roller having wedding rings/ two rollers with hooches /one with assorted spinners etc./ dosen't take up much room in the boat. I went to Mack lures and purchased a large assortment of components to mix and match any color wedding ring ever made thats in my fresh water box A man can never have enough tackle. I can guarantee what they are hitting on I won't have in the boat

    My problem with soft bags is that the zippers fail, either get eaten by salt or just fail way before they should. Boxes are hard, maybe one of the bags with velcro would work, anyone using them?bob r

    I have been using the soft bag the plastic boxes without any troubles. Another idea is to use the CD holders that will also hold your variety of dodgers and other near-flat gear.

    These bags use velcro...i use one for dodgers, one for flashers, and one for small lake trolls.

    As far as lures go i just keep them in plano box's and store them in various compartments on the boat. I also take along a couple regular fold out plano box's...had them for 10 years with no issues.
