    tackle storage organizer

    not sure if this is the right section for the question since i'm new here. But anyways i just purchased a Skeeter ZX195C recently and wondering what people use to organize their tackle boxes? I have just been stacking them on top of eachother. Kinda annoying. Let's see some pictures!

    Had similar problem for one of my Ranger storage areas, so I made a holder for the Plano boxes that looks like a file folder holder you see in offices. Two pieces of Trex as long as you need for the space and about 2 1/2 " high, with saw cuts about 1 " deep and spaced the thickness of your Plano boxes, plus about a 1/2"apart. From Lowes or a Depot store, I got some of the plastic wall covering mat'l like you see in mobile homes and business bathrooms and cut it into divider pieces to insert in the Trex saw cuts and glued it into place with some silicon. No metal, no rust and still working after 10 years of service.

    Modular wire racks like these. They are lightweight, inexpensive, can be connected end-to-end to make longer racks, and don't even need to be bolted down. Nice for end of year cleanout.
    Holds single 3600 series boxes, or two 3500 series side by side in one rack slot.

    Harbor Freight has this nifty storage set up:

    I keep jigs in one box with foam slits for different sizes marked on the lid:


    Different boxes have either no separators or a few.10 boxes in all. Cost $9.

    Just thought I would pass this on. This is an “Ike” terminal storage box. The width is perfect for my sinker storage bottles and the depth is enough to accept my hooks stored on safety pins.
