Frustration-Free Saltwater Tackle Storage

September 12, 2018

By Jot Owens

Saltwater can have disastrous effects on fishing tackle. Even hooks and other terminal tackle made for saltwater should still be protected. I need a rugged, waterproof and reliable option to protect my gear day in and day out.

Plano Z-Series is the best option I’ve found for frustration-free saltwater tackle storage. Here’s why:

  • No zippers. The Plano Z-Series is zipperless, eliminating frustrating failures that are common in many traditional zipper bags. I used to actually waste time lubricating zippers on other bags. Now I don’t have to worry about zippers getting bound up or corroded from saltwater use.
  • Waterproof. The molded waterproof base prevents my bag from soaking up water. Plus, it provides extra protection from the usual wear and tear of lots of use and abuse. The high-performance waterproof fabric protects everything inside – and the Kryptec pattern is a good-looking, popular design (that matches my fishing shirt)!

As a fishing guide, I’m on the water more than 200 days per year. I need to be organized to be effective. Luckily, there are versatile options within the Z-Series to give me flexible storage solutions.

  1. Z-Series 3600 Tackle Bag. With five 3600 Stowaways, I use this bag for my terminal tackle, like hooks, swivels and weights.
  2. Z-Series 3700 Tackle Bag. With five slightly larger 3700 Stowaways, I use this bag to organize my lures, softbaits and hardbaits.
  3. Z-Series 3700 Tackle Backpack. This is my go-to for surf fishing. It allows me to keep my hands free and there’s no need to worry during the afternoon rains while I walk to safety.
  4. Z-Series Wrap. I like this lure wrap for off-shore fishing. It has six large compartments that are clear so I can easily find what I’m looking for, and an efficient pack-and-roll design.
