Get ready for a great fishing trip.

Bass fishing is a sport that can require a box full of tackle for the dynamic bass fisherman. Keeping all of your tackle organized and easily accessible is a formula for the proficient bass fisherman.

I am no perfectionist on this organization topic and have even been called sloppy and unorganized by my fishing partners at times but in an instant if I want to throw a specific lure that I have in my boat, whether it is a lure that I haven’t thrown in years or days I know right where it is and can be fishing that lure in moments.

If you have an intuition to throw a bait and you know the bait will work in a situation, whatever it might be, then you have to put that intuition into action. If the exact location of that bait that fits your intuition is unknown and it would take you five minutes to find it, the timing of the intuition is thrown off and it is lost. Your frustration of not knowing where the lure is overpowered the intuition and the feeling is wasted and unfulfilled. You might not even take the time to look for the bait if you don’t know exactly where it is and the same thing happens. You cannot fish instinctively to your maximum potential if you don’t know where all of your baits are.

There are certainly plenty of other reasons to be organized in the boat , however, this is one of my main reasons for being organized, so that I can act upon instinct in an instant.

I keep most of my crankbaits, topwaters, rogues, hooks, weights, and soft plastics in clear plastic boxes. The boxes are labeled: shallow cranks, mid cranks, deep cranks, worms, craws, french fries, soft jerk baits, hula grubs, topwaters, rogues, diving rogues, etc.

The labels are all in plain view and facing up at me when I open my deck lid in my boat. It takes constant maintenance to keep these boxes organized. All of the baits you use in a day have to be put back where they came from at the end of the day to keep up with this system. After a while, you will memorize the location in each box where every single lure lies and this will even speed up your lure location when you need one.

This all goes back to the “little things” that I refer to. If you constantly strive to do the little things, they will eventually all add up to making you a more effective bass fisherman and lead you to catch more fish.
