Default Storing soft plastics

With my ever growing assortment of soft plastic baits I am running out of room for them. So my question is what do ya'll use to store your plastics while keeping them in the original packageand finding them quickly. Also need the ability to move from boat to boat as I fish with different people quite a bit.

I posted a while back, I had found in walmart in the craft section, a scrap booking box that I keep mine in. I have 4 of them, 2 I keep in the boat. I have in 1 box 69 bags of plastic's for less than 20 bucks and they work great.

You're right that looks like it would work great.

I have this small bag I received from BASS when I joined that I keep all mine in. I go back and forth between my boat and a friends boat and needed a way to bring them along in some portable manner.

Popr, I can't quite tell from the photos. Are those boxes about the size of a normal tackle box in terms of length and width?

I have a couple of plastic containers in my boat in the same idea as Popr. I also try to put what I think will work on certain lakes in a worm binder. ( so that can get changed from lake to lake )

If a buddy asks me to go fishing with him at a certain lake, I will just take the worm binder with what I think will work. Plus a small plastic lure holder for some cranks etc.. ( holds about 6 lures ) that can be stored inside my worm binder as well.

In my shed where I keep alot also ( for restocking lol ) well, that isnt to organized. I have some on the wall, some in old tackle boxes, some in plastic containers.

Great idea! I need a couple of those because i can't see all the baits i have because the plastics are in one box and are stacked in the extra space in the bottom of my tackle box.

I love the binders from basspro shop. I have a few of them - three for my senko's alone. I like them because they have plenty of bags, you can add plenty more and they have pockets you can use for the hooks or jigs or anything else you need for the type of plastic you are storing in that binder. I also take a silver sharpie and mark on the top of the binder whats inside, senko's, large or small grubs, ect. If I need to change whats in the binder, a blue sharpie works good to erase the silver writing and you can't even tell you had used any markers once you use the blue. The nice thing about the binders is they store pretty nice in my storage area (they fit like books on a self) on the boat and they don't take up a ton of room. I can only fit about 4 or 5 tackle trays in the storage area but with the binders, I can fit a dozen FILLED binders in there and I have a ton more stuff in the binders compared to the tackle trays.

I keep mine in a combination camel back/backpack. The ones I'm not using I store in a desk drawer that I don't use.
