Fishing Tackle Storage Containers and Concepts

Pybus Point Lodge Logo

If you're a longtime angler, or even someone looking to become more passionate about fishing in the future, one of the most important concepts here is storing your most important pieces of equipment. One great example: The storage of fishing tackle, which includes equipment like rods, lines, bait and many other potential items.

At Pybus Point Lodge, we're here to help with all your equipment and storage needs for any of our all-inclusive fishing vacations. We're also happy to coordinate with longtime anglers who want to bring some or all of their own equipment with them for their trip, including tackle and tackle storage items. If you're just in the process of increasing your tackle equipment setup, here are a few simple methods anglers often use to keep their tackle items stored safely and securely between uses.

Plastic Utility Boxes

For those looking for the very best waterproof storage for items like baits and lures, plastic utility boxes work well, and you can even get them with a clear lid to more easily identify their contents. Nowadays, these are available in a wide range of shapes and sizes, including options for specific types of fishing like bass or surf fishing. For smaller items, including tools and lures, tackle boxes will work more effectively.

In addition, for items like hooks and other sharp objects that can potentially damage whatever's around them if they're jostled or placed into a box without some extra room, plastic tackle boxes come with dividers to give these pieces their own spaces within the larger storage case.

Heavy-Duty Freezer Bags

For softer bait items like worms, it's ideal to keep them in the original packaging while avoiding the need to punch holes in the side of this packaging. One way of doing this involves using heavy-duty freezer bags, which are designed for keeping all kinds of foods fresh and undamaged whether you're taking them on an outdoor trip or simply storing them at home. These can also be used for other soft objects, including cloth items like lures that can't simply be tossed into a box or bag.

Importance of Labeling and Cleaning

No matter which of these options you're using for storing your tackle, it's important to remember the power of labeling and cleaning to make sure you know exactly what's stored where. Lures, in particular, need to be cleaned of mud and other debris before being stored, to ensure they're in the best possible shape when they're needed for a fishing trip.

And especially if you're building a large tackle collection, labels allow you to easily identify the contents of each container, including what's stored where. Understanding these storage methods can make it easier for you to maximize your space and store everything in the most effective way possible.

Incredible Experience!

Pybus Point Lodge has some of the most stunning scenery I’ve ever seen. I mean absolutely breathtaking! In addition to the amazing fishing, I hiked to a beautiful secluded lake, soaked in some hot pots, saw several waterfalls, went whale watching, saw bears and all kinds of wildlife and marine life. As a photographer, photographing a wedding under a waterfall will remain a highlight of my life.

Wonderful and Magical Place

We had an amazing business retreat to Pybus Point Lodge.  Everything was top notch... the fishing, the staff, the boat captains, the food, the accommodations, and especially the scenery. I really liked that Pybus took care of everything from start to finish. Chef John is an amazing cook. We had delicious hot meals the entire trip.  The cabins were amazing and very comfortable.  The fishing was awesome and that’s coming from a guy that doesn’t fish that much.

We brought home 100lbs of fish!

My wife and I spent a week at Pybus Point this Summer. We had a beautiful, private room overlooking the bay and our own new, ensuite, private bathroom. What an amazing place for couples to get away together. We set our own breakfast time, met our boat captain after, fished the day along, and returned to clean up and enjoy a nice dinner at the restaurant. Next time Alaska is on the trip list, Sherrie and I will go together, and it will be to Pybus Point!

Fun in Alaska

This was my first trip to Pybus Point. I stayed in one of their new cabins. The accommodations were incredible, the view onto the bay in the mornings was stunning. I loved the staff and the food was really very good. All of this and they have new boats to take you out onto fairly calm waters to fish. The fishing guides were great. Overall a great experience. Definitely going back.
