You arrive at the boat launch ahead of schedule only to find a line of trailers already there ahead of you. What you thought was ample time to beat the first-light rush turned out to be a pretty common idea, so now it’s time to sit and stew over the day’s plan. Like any good angler, you begin to glance around to see what other anglers have planned and what intel you can gleam from them; your eyes eventually make it to a fully tricked-out 30-foot center console that makes your 18 look like a dinghy. As the owner eases the trailer down the incline towards the water, you admire the brand-new pick-up truck and recently waxed boat. This is one tricked-out rig in which the owner invested some serious cash, but as he launches several 5-gallon pails slide down the deck, tip over and spill all his tackle on the deck. What a tangled mess, and here’s where you begin to feel better about your rig. For all the time, energy and money put into this fishing machine, the owner neglected one of the most important aspects of a successful fisherman: tackle storage.
Fast-forward a little more than an hour and you finally begin to throttle down as you approach the drop-off just outside the river where you launched. The tide is two hours down and the rip line is well-defined. Your plan today is to bounce bucktails along the bottom of the rip for stripers. All your gear for the day is neatly packed, organized in a Plano Z-Series Tackle Bag, and each Plano Edge Series storage case is labeled in sharpie on the end making for quick and easy access. With varied currents you need an assortment of bucktail colors in different sizes to adjust to changing bait and current and present your bait properly. Being able to find the right bucktail quickly can make a big difference as condition are always changing; the last thing you want is to be searching through messy tackle trays to find the right lure. Another benefit of the Plano EDGE system is that it has a crystal clear duraview lid that’s not only strong but super easy to see through so you can scan what inside. Plus it has a one handed latch making it a breeze to open and close to get what you want and get back to fishing.
You’ve gone through your share of wasted bucktails, hooks, lures and more over the years as they can be a challenge to keep in pristine condition. They’re notorious for having a limited shelf life if not cared for, especially in saltwater conditions. The Plano Edge series of tackle trays addresses that challenge and is one of the most advanced tackle systems ever developed as it’s designed to allow airflow throughout the tray while the DRI-LOC O-ring water seal keeps water out. The EDGE Rustrictor technology delivers 360 degrees of rust-prevention and helps lures resist corrosion and stay in their best condition. Too much moisture and colors fade, hooks rust and bucktails – any lures really – are less effective. Inside the box there’s a special, reusable, water wick divider that dries out moisture left on the lures when stowed away. Plus whether bucktails, diamond jigs, plugs, terminal tackle, or anything you can make the box your own, as Plano’s EDGE boxes include a fully customizable internal divider system to make every compartment exactly the right size for every lure.
