I love my big bronco when I'm heading somewhere new and fit a lot of different stuff. then I got two BW belt bags that are great when you wanna travel light and also the precision small bag for night fishing. They all seem to hold well although you may wanna change the bw tubes as they come apart very quick, use tennis ball tubes as replacements

2 AS large, 1 VS, 3 Plano, and 1 ancient canvas bag, one of those old army green ones with the leather straps, that I'm emotionally attached to.

The AS bags are setup for Montauk, one day, one night

The VS is my daily bag for here in Jersey - holds a little more, especially tins

The 3 Planos are used mainly for baitfishing. You can take the dividers out leaving the plastic box frame - perfect for carrying stuff. One is setup for bass one is setup for fluke and one is used as a backup plug bag.

The old canvas bag is unique in that it holds the biggest kind of plugs, things that don't fit at all in the AS and are too tall for the VS. I've had it for so long that I can't even remember where or when I got it, all I know is that it's the greatest bag of all time for humping big pluggage on those long walks at Sandy Hook.

I have the AS small single row belt bag. Nice, but not tall enough for most of the plugs I use. The tall version is on my wish list. I had the large AS plug bag as well, also a tad too short for some of my bigger plugs,,, but it's currently on the ocean floor somewhere near Cow Town.

Two row bag from The Surfcaster. I "inherited" it from a friend, but would absolutely buy it for myself. The material, stitching, inserts, etc. are built to last.

I use the medium 2-row BW... ( I think they changed their label & name... same bag, new generic look) I like the bag, and was much cheaper than the rest... save $$$ where you can so you can splurge on other things.

*why the hell are aquaskins dry tops so damn fruity looking? the colors they pick look like youre training for the tour de France or like a teenager going boogie boarding.

My consolidation "Bag" is the entire back seat of a full size extended cab GMC pick-up, the over flow goes in the bed.
My carry bag is a USMC issue alice pack that holds 4 plano boxes.
To narrow down for off shore walks to barely visible reef tops, I use an old canvas Medic bag that holds 30 or so plugs nicely tangled by the hooks.

Jacob I think I saw that bag floating in the gulf stream when I went tuna fishing off Hatteras.

I bought Shimano bag to replace my old metal insert bags and the old army gas mask bags. I didn't care for Shimano and chucked it out for Aquaskinz bag. I wish they had put some holes in the bottom of the inserts. I picked up another one that had the holes on the bottom.

I have just revamped my original bag. It's an old canvas bag with 8 tubes. I removed the shoulder strap and added some belt loops and velcro. soon I will probably add drain holes.

A guy named Jim Reid builder of those early khaki colored bags wasn't a fisherman but identified the need for a retail plug bag in the mid 60s and came up with a canvas bag with riveted sheet metal inserts and built them from his basement shop in East North-port Long Island. They sold for 15 bucks and were available until the late 70's before being discontinued.
Some are still around.

Surfcaster Ultimate 3 row plus when I'm staying put and I have a Canyon 6 tube when I'm climbing on rocks. I think I'm going to try a small belt bag for that this year though.....
