I always struggle to find a way to bring everything I need with me depending on if I’m fishing in my boat, from shore, or a buddy’s boat. Now I have everything I need in one compact package that I can change which Plano boxes I keep in it depending on what I’m targeting. Pockets for my scale, pliers, soft plastics, and anything else I need. Great for pier and shore fishing too!! Just really happy with it so wanted to share and see what everyone else uses because I’m bored and can’t take my boat out lol

    I've got a cabela's backpack similar to yours. I've had it for 8-10 years now and love it. Easier carrying everything where ever I am fishing.

    If I went that route, I’d need one of these:

    I don't own a boat so it's nice for me. I have to make choices before going for the day. It will hold 4 of the plano boxes plus a smaller box of plastics I use and a box of spinnerbaits/buzzbaits I have. Then tools in a bunch of different pockets. I get what you're saying though about needing more space.

    I only take what I need depending on which species I'm after. For the most part, I can fit what I need in a chest pack. I do have a backpack as well but it isn't often I need to use it, it's mostly used for camping trips. My chest pack holds everything; a box with the baits I'll need, a box with terminal tackle, some leader line, and a few other odds and ends.

    Here's mine, they're usually around $25 on Amazon and occasionally go below $20. I think I paid $18 IIRC. https://byallen.com/product/fall-river-chest-pack/

    Go to tj max and buy a backpack that has a sleve for a laptop. I bought one like 10 years ago and paid maybe 25 bucks.

    I have multiple soft bags with cases inside them. I take and load each on for whatever I’m targeting(walleye, brookies, pike etc).

    Took up kayak fishing in 2003 with no deck storage and wanted to reduce in-hull clutter in case I ever needed to bail out.

    Now my lake tackle consists of one 8x11 Plano flat box with the essentials, inside a soft bag with plastics, a spare reel, knife, hemostats, and a spare spool of line.

    Simplifies choices, cuts down on unused lures, and makes packing in and out of the car a lot easier after a six-hour paddle.
