Carrying and securing all your fishing gear in one portable and easy to use carrying case can be extremely difficult, regardless if you’re a spring bass angler, summer redfish chaser or winter diehard going after whatever is still biting.
However, in the case of the Bass Pro Shops Stalker Backpack Tackle System, there’s also room to carry along a hot breakfast or cold beverage for later in addition to keeping all your regular tackle dry and secure.
The backpack itself is constructed of heavy-duty 600-denier water-resistant polyester and can be purchased separately to fill with tackle boxes and other gear you already own, or as the system with three 360 utility boxes included. In all, the lower compartment can hold as many as five of that particular size utility box.
There also are exterior pockets for accessories, a line spooling pocket, a molded integrated lure case, a pocket for jarred baits and a mesh accessory compartment.
The system is tailor-made to customization, not only in your fishing gear and tackle but also in your angling pursuits. The backpack undoubtedly is suited for largemouth anglers but it also is perfect for kayak fishing on the Texas coast, allowing easy access to gear before, during and after hooking any number of species.
The only big drawback to the components is that the area designed to hold and help you spool up line isn’t large enough to hold bigger spools. However, the limitations in that regard aren’t that much cause for concern as the overall system more than makes up for it with plenty of room and options for all your fishing goodies.
The system retails for $64.99.
