Boat Storage & Tackle Bags
Organization is a huge factor in the success of fishing guides, tournament fishing teams, and recreational anglers all over the world. Keeping your equipment safe and secure on the way to your fishing grounds can eliminate any potential headaches. Knowing where your equipment is at any split second can be the difference between landing the fish of a lifetime and a heartbreaking “one that got away” story. » Read More
Organized gear and fishing tackle bags come at a premium on all boats, big or small. Not only can storage be critical to fishing, but it can also be critical to the safety of everyone on board. A cluttered deck can lead to falls, and loose rigs and tools can lead to hooks being stepped on and other safety issues. On the water, these minor inconveniences can have more severe consequences.
T-top Bags for Life Jackets & Safety Gear
While safety equipment can take up lots of room, it needs to be easily accessible in the event of an emergency. T-top storage bags are great for storing bulky items such as life jackets and throw cushions. Not only does the T-top bag utilize previously unused space, but it also keeps your safety gear within easy reach.
Suspended Tackle Bags
Suspended tackle and gear storage, like those made by TackleWebs, also turn previously wasted space into storage. These can turn the framing of your T-top into storage that can hold tackle boxes, pliers, rig bags, and other equipment. Using special bungee cords, suspended storage can be installed essentially anywhere there is a vertical void created by the framework.
On smaller boats, like flats skiffs, suspended storage containers can utilize the wasted space below your casting platform or the framing below your poling platform. These mesh bags are low-cost and can go from boat to boat to serve multiple roles in maximizing the storage space available on deck. They also help maximize deck space and dry storage, unlike traditional tackle boxes and bags, which usually end up on the deck or in a compartment.
Velcro & Stick-On Tackle Bags
To utilize even more nooks and crannies, adhesive or velcro-backed mesh tackle containers can go on the sides of consoles, under gunwales, or inside hatches to organize large underdeck storage areas.
We offer Velcro-backed tackle bags in 16” wide x 12” tall and 12” wide and 16” tall options that allow you to take them with you, or stow them when you’re not on your boat. When you’re fishing, you can simply re-attach them to their Velcro strip to have your equipment easily accessible.
Cooler Lid Storage Bags
Even the underside of your cooler lid can benefit from a mesh storage bag. Cooler lid storage can keep your snacks dry and cool above the potentially fishy ice. Although not as portable as a standalone soft-sided tackle bag or tackle box, mesh boat tackle containers can serve a broader array of functions and are geared towards broader boat storage use.
On a similar note, although they may not be as tidy as a built-in tackle cabinet, they are a fraction of the cost and can be mounted in a variety of different ways.
Besides keeping your boat neat and organized, tackle storage can also play a part in your fishing rig’s longevity. Fishing lines and lures can all be sensitive to sunlight when exposed for significant amounts of time. Tackle bags can keep your rigs in pristine condition, ready to fish at a moment’s notice.
Tackle bag storage is not exclusive to smaller boats. Even on the largest sport fishers, it is important to have your rigs clean, organized, and ready to use if the bite gets hot. Some tackle bags are made to be stored on hooks, while others are designed for hanging on specifically made tracks. Protecting expensive fishing kites is also made easier with specifically made kite storage bags.
For custom applications, custom-made net storage pouches can be made to order. Regardless of what size your boat is, or what kind of fish you’re chasing, having a well-equipped and organized boat can make any day on the water more enjoyable.
