    I'm looking for some opinions for the best one for the money. Really not looking to spend over 100 bucks, but would like a bag that keeps everything dry, has plenty of room for jigs and plenty of terminal tackle .

    WFO makes high quality stuff. I ordered the small reel bag and i believe it is the best on the market. I plan on buying other tackle storage items from them.

    How about the Cabela's magnum bag w/8 3700-size plastic boxes? Here's the link:

    Cabela's Advanced Anglers Pro Series Tackle Bags with Boxes

    This or the one I prefer, which has an overhanging waterproof top, would organize and carry a lot of tackle. When not fishing, you load your jigs into it and carry it around or to the gym for an aerobic workout.

    Side pockets on WFO will fit a bunch of long lures still in package. Or you could put them up top. After i open poppers i put them in the trays..and i put the jigs in a jig bag that fits in the top compartment or in place of a storage tray.

    Your will never find a standard bag that will fit your needs. You either have to make due with the standard bag or box or get one fabricated to your specs. I own a bunch of tackle boxes and bags. Nothing is totally waterproof. Different trips take a different style bag. Day bags, two day boxes, and travel bags.


    I had a upholstery shop last year make me one that is awesome. He wrapped a waterproof fabric around a custom fabricated frame of aluminum and fiberglass. It's really cool. It's my perfect tackle carrier for a one or two day trip. I'd post pictures, but Uncle Russ would probably get jealous and drop everything to try and outdo me.:)

    i put jigs in thinner plano boxes without assist hooks. works fine. i put poppers in thicker boxes. trebles can be annoying, but again, works fine.

    bait stuff is kept in boxes as well. i only bring what i need at the time out onto the deck.

    assist hooks/rings/split rings, etc are in a separate pouch.

    if a jig bag or popper bag helps you be more organized then go for it. i think the key is just staying organized as best you can.
