Before I got a boat, I had this bag which had all of the side pouches full and all of the plastic boxes in it.
https://www.academy.com/shop/pdp/Pro...dCatid=3420848

I actually have two of the same, one for inshore fishing and one for bass fishing. For inshore, replacing hooks, adding more leader material, replacing a popping cork with leader and tackle; I seemed to be using much less in the bag on a regular basis. My solution is to just take a plastic box or two, but then I won't have all the soft plastic bags I like to use. So, I thought a little bigger duffle would be useful to 1) hold the couple plastic boxes, 2) have a side pouch or so to hold all the soft plastic pouches, and 3) hold some of the other odds and ends I take on the boat. I already have a smaller roll-up type waterproof bag that I carry more essentials with me.


I appreciate the feedback everyone. There's a couple bags I had already seen and seeing someone post them here makes me feel a little better as well.

I have had a similar problem. I packed so much stuff into the bag, but most of it was stuff I rarely used. I had all this "just in case" stuff, and then I literally wound up carrying a plastic shopping bag with extra "essential" stuff that I didn't have room for in the duffle.

For me, the answer was just a commitment to stop focus on putting only essentials in the duffle. Stuff I know I used all the time. The idea of carrying a plastic shopping bag with non-essential stuff seemed sort of silly.

The only thing I have against fully waterproof bags is that when something wet does get inside, it doesn't dry out. I've ruined some tackle that way.

I have a couple, one is a Scott tackle bag ( small duffle size) the other bag is a Yeti Panga. I know the Yeti is pricey, I got mine half off sale CoOp points from REI.

Slightly off topic but I recently put "drainage tile" in the bottom on the storage on my boat. Especially if you plan on leaving the bags in the boat. Lets water out and air move around vs getting trapped under the bags and molding in the compartments.

I just ordered the lightweight plastic stuff off amazon not the heavy rubber mats

Also, aside from the fold-over bag, I use one of the BassPro bags for my 'Ditch Bag' and Safety gear, with the water tight storage trays it floats, you can fit allot of stuff even in the smaller bag like I have, see link below.

I've had it in the rain and occasional splashes and haven't had any issues the way the top covers the zipper

Look at the post by Curlin in General Merchandise classified (Ziplock Bags).
I bought 100 of each and I believe they will solve a lot of your problems. They are very heavy duty and will last.

For tackle, I use several types of bags. In addition to the Lew's bag that I use for my lures, I use waterproof roll top drawstring bags for my soft plastics. I leave the soft plastics their original bags and the drawstring bags hold a lot of those bags. It takes 2 bags to separate all of the soft plastics and colors that I have (too many). These Gecko drawstring bags work great: https://www.academy.com/shop/pdp/gec...tSku=114658572

I use that big Sak Gear waterproof duffel only occasionally and only for bigger stuff. The Lew's tackle bag and the Gecko drawstring bags stay resident in a drybox dedicated to tackle. The idea of putting deck flooring tiles in the drybox is a great idea. Tiles have been ordered! I always have a little moisture in the dry box and I have to open them up to air them out. I think moisture is getting in when I blast the deck at the car wash.

Plus most of these bags have plastic teeth zippers but have a metal zip and it eventually corrodes. I used to have one of those bags, didn't make it 2 years.

I like roll top bags, but don't get the ones with the windows.. either get complete clear vinyl or complete colored vinyl, NO WINDOWS.. all the window ones I've had leak.

for a bag or duffel, that one posted by Habanero Joe looks like it's perfect combination of roll top and duffel combined.

I bought an Ozark Trail Cooler and even though it doesn't hold ice as good as the yetti, I'd say so far the zippers are holding up great and seem to be sealed. That looks like a good low cost option.

This is what I thought the OP was asking about. I use them as a dry duffel for a change of clothes, a towel and food/dry goods I don't want to get wet.

For key-fobs and cell pone, I use a small plastic clamp style hard plastic dry box small enough to fit in the center console or leaning post.
