Tackle Tip: Hook Organization

For many of us inland kayak anglers winter is a great time to take inventory of our tackle and begin to organize it for next spring.  We've had a couple of winter tackle tips here on yakangler; End of Fishing Season Task and Basic Reel Care.  This week I wanted to share a little trick that I found that really helps to keep your hooks organized and easily inventoried. 

Now, I’ll be the first to admit that I have a bit of OCD when it comes to my fishing tackle.  My personality makes me want things to be very well organized, grouped in like categories, and not tangled.    So as all of you kayak anglers know your hooks can be a complete mess.  No matter how many times I would organize them by size after a couple of outings, some hooks would be mixed in with other hooks and I would have to reorganize again.

To solve this problem I bought one of those Styrofoam noodles from Dicks Sporting Goods (one of the cheap ones for like $2-3.00).  You can cut little rectangular sections out of them to fit in the slots of your Plano box.

Then simply put your hooks into the Styrofoam and place back in your tackle box.    Now you have a well organized tackle box for your hooks that you can keep organized during and after your kayak fishing trips.   The nice thing about this soft Styrofoam is that you can reuse it quite a bit before you need to replace it.
