Well, for me it depends on the bait. Like my zooms, I will just keep them in the original bags. But some of my other baits like my productos I will store in a tackle tray like the plano 3600's or 3700's. Then there are senkos and any other baits with a high salt content. I keep those in a good ziplock bag and will generally throw some rice in the bag to help absorb any moisture so it doesnt draw the salt out of the baits.

I use both systems (loose and bagged).

If I know I am going to be fishing plastic, I will go to the bag method. Easier to keep in your pocket so you don't have to dig into the tackle bag to get a replacements.

CHADWLY, I swear, one day I am going to install my bag system from Cooks. I like the concept and it does look like it would keep your baits out in easy reach.

I use zip lock freezer bags and label them. They seem to compress and store better for me in the boxes I use to store my soft plastics in.

I keep the baits im using for the specific trip in a small tackle bag the soft baits are in the bottom and all the hard baits are in their own trays cranks in with cranks and so on. Everything else is at home, except my "oh s**t" bag which has all my confidence baits in it, those stay under the passengers seat. Dave

Soft plastic baits:
Worms and creatures in flat 14 X 9 x 1 3/4 boxes labeled by size, color, style and mfr. 14 boxes in the boat and keep the night stuff and over flow in the garage cabinet. It is important for me to have worms lay flat and straight as possible. The boxes are organized and stored on the wide edge so I can read the labels like book binders. I also keep the smaller 11 X 7 1/2 X 1 3/4 boxes with drop shot worm, grubs, hooks, beads, Peg-IT, weights etc., in storage bags in the locker. Swim baits in 14 X 9 X 3 1/2 boxes, laying flat, not on edge.
With this arrangement I can find what I need fast or grab a terminal tackle bag and whatever soft plastic boxesI needed when fishing in another boat. I keep my jigs, pork trailers and crank baits, spinner baits and spoons in a separate Albacore tackle bags.

For you guys using the Cooks Storage system I have a question. When you "drill the screws" into the lid of your compartment what size screw do you use to keep them from poking through the top and carpet of your deck? Many boats use metal lids for strength and weight and they are just not very thick. So how do you keep the screws from poking up through the carpet and making that a problem when walking on it? Do you guys glue it on instead? This is a problem that I consider with this system.

My friend has it and is having a hard time figuring out how to install it as his lid is metal and too thin for any screw and like most of our compartment lids, has foam on the underneath part making it difficult to glue without having to remove that foam.

Your thoughts?
