I'm quickly out growing what I bought, so this thread has helped. I'm leaning toward setting up smaller bags/boxes for the type of fishing they are for.

This one has treated us well going on 5 years now. No zippers to mess with and you can interchange the tackle trays based on what type of fishing you're doing.

I have abused my offshore angler bags-bigger one is toast as I broke zipper

Only thing with the Bags is its hard to keep organized-and the larger bag gets heavy when I overstuff it.

They get pretty stiff in cold weather

I havent found a decent alternative for me

Milk crate holds my tackle utility boxes in one place and easy access. Offshore bag holds the rest and has for a long time.

X2 here. I got tired of replacing my bags every year and this thing is indestructible. The BIG plastic zippers don't corrode and always are easy to open/close.

First of all I realize this is a older thread. I just wanted to add that my Shimano bag gave out and I ordered the KingCast Lunker Bag. I wondered about the Hawg but it was borderline TOO big. I am very happy with my purchase as the Shimano bigger bags are not made any more.

Here is the standard Amazon link Here is the standard Amazon link

The bag does not come with size 3700 or 3600 trays so some may feel it is too expensive. I already had the trays...

PS - there is a vid

I know I'm gonna get murdered for this, but, I did buy a Yeti bucket with the lid and the inner tray thing. Used it for the first time last week down in Marathon. Loved it. Had all my crap in there, kept it all organized. Water proof. Just a suggestion.

I will never knock Yeti as Yeti buckets are good. Just like eight 3700 organizers for lures, hooks and terminal stuff and side pockets and the like. Yeti bucket is waterproof and would probably float which gives it an advantage.

my favorite is the HPA 90 L for my multi day offshore trips and the 50 L for day trips. Very well made and a sponsor here is selling them for 1/2 of retail. I bought 2 more 50 L (60.00 shipped) for friends and they love them.

also use cabelas bags to organize by species - have held up very well for years. great so you just grab the right bag(s) and you know you have everything you need.

I’m using the yeti bucket two. You can get the whole yeti loadout set up, lid, tray, and organizer, for the same price of most bags, that have cheap metal zippers that will be trashed in a year!
The bucket holds up to weights, can be used as a seat, doesn’t slide, has the quick access organizer for tools like pliers and grippers, and can be hosed off at the end of the day and is totally waterproof.
For the money, I’m convinced it’s the best solution.

Thanks for the link. I have a similar bag but will support sponsors on this site. Looks Very Nice.

My Shimano bag has lasted me for 15 years nearly in a saltwater environment. All zippers now are frozen :-) New bag is most welcome.
