    Just went out on my float tube for the first time a couple weeks ago, and one thing i think i can be better at is how i'm storing/organizing my soft plastic baits. I've got my variety of senkos, roboworms, flukes, creature baits, etc, all just stuffed into a ziplock bag. But I'm sure you experts have figured out some ingenious way to organize and store them.

    I've got a fish cat 4 if that matters.

    I just use zip locks. Take the air out of them and you can store about 1.2 million plastics in one side. ( A little less maybe )
    I place al my plastics on one side and terminal tackle, and hard baits on the other.
    Works great and it keep your tube lite.

    A saltwater note....
    I don't carry a ton of plastics because...spotties don't care. For the bays I have one or two Plano 3540 boxes, the ones that seal out water. These also come in the 3600 size..but those barely fit in pockets on my small tube. One box has a few ball, shad, and ned rig leadheads, and a couple dozen rigged ScorcherZ tube baits. Sometimes I don't even carry a second box...but if I do, it's got spoons and plugs. And there's a big ziploc bag with a few bags of plastics for the leadheads, and a spinnerbait or two.
    My tube is small and sometimes the stuff in the pockets gets wet. You wouldn't think stuff inside a regular 3600 box would get wet...it's not like it's submerged....but hooks can start rusting if you just whisper "salt water." Hence the waterproof boxes.
    And of course, nothing goes back into the box if it's been in the water. Used plugs and spoons go in a separate spot to be washed at home. Plastics are removed from the leadheads, which are washed and hung up to dry.
    this little beauty was only used once in freshwater....you can see what bare lead does to plastic when it can't dry out..... 20200620_153037[1].jpg

    and here's the boxes I use.
