Guide Series Blade Bag
Blade Slingers Have Their Soft-Side
Plano adds the ultimate spinnerbait, buzzbait and chatterbait wrap to their superior Guide Series line of tackle totes
picture of part

There’s no denying the best method of locating active predator fish is to cover as much water with artificial lures as possible in a short period of time. And the supreme baits to handle the task, by far, are spinnerbaits, buzzbaits and chatterbaits.

Ask anyone with big-bladed-bait knowhow, however, and they’ll tell you the size, style and color of these aggressively-fished lures can make a difference between getting bit and being ignored day to day, hour to hour. This is why some of today’s top blade slingers take a wide variety with them every time out, along with component parts in case a minor tweak is required.

In the past, this meant a tote full of the flamboyantly-bladed baits here and a box of pieces and parts there, scattered all throughout the boat. It’s for this very reason Plano has created the distinctive Guide Series Blade Bag - the heavy-duty yet totally soft-wrap solution for taming these run-cast-and-gun baits.

New for 2016, the Guide Series Blade Bag allows anglers full examination of a multitude of the temptations that just might make the grade with a flip of each double-compartmental clear PVC sleeve. And inside the heavy-duty nylon shell are various zippered and slip-in pockets to hold extra blades, skirts, trailer hooks and the other components anglers use to customize their baits.

An easy-to-grasp pull tab makes securing all zippered compartments a breeze, and all hold lures snug and secure no matter the size or shape.

Specifics Include:
#461300 Guide Series Blade Bag
Organize up to 64 bladed baits in one small bag
Interior walls with 8 clear zippered sleeves with 2 pockets per sleeve
Size: 10.75”L x 2.5”W x 13”H

M-Series Hydro-Flo Tackle Bag
The Bomb For Big Baits
Hydro-Flo design applied to hanging bait storage in all-new Plano® M-Series Hydro-Flo™ Tackle
picture of part

In 2011, Plano’s original Guide Series 4674 Hydro-Flo Tackle Bag earned an ICAST “Best of Show” for an ingenious design that allowed water to flow right through the base of the bag, an industry first. Since then, the Hydro-Flo has become a favorite with anglers the world over.

For 2016, Plano’s angling engineers have applied their award-winning Hydro-Flo design to the all-new M-Series Hydro-Flo Tackle Bag, a beast of a bag with a manageable footprint and shockingly cavernous interior configured for space-saving storage of big baits via vertical hanging.

Muskie maniacs, swimbait specialists and saltwater jig junkies have had limited tackle storage options... Until now. The M-Series Hydro-Flo Tackle Bag stores up to 25 of their large lures in clever hanging bait compartments. Tie ‘em, fish ‘em, hang ‘em and rinse ‘em. The M-Series Hydro-Flo’s spacious main compartment keeps big baits organized, secure and dry, courtesy of a flow-through design and the reinforced namesake base.

This strikingly stately olive green and cerulean blue bag is big business on the outside, too, with a parade of plus-sized perimeter pockets that zip open and closed to secure all the tools, goods, gear and accessories any angler could need during a day on the water.

Thanks to Planos Hydro-Flo performance, you can now ride your big, expensive baits hard and put ‘em away wet. They’ll dry fast inside the new M-Series Hydro-Flo Tackle Bag, one of four all-new high capacity M-Series designs - including 3600 and 3700 size M-Series Tackle Bags and an M-Series Messenger Bag - merging voluminous interiors with a sexy signature look.

Specifics Include:
Plano #414300 M-Series Hydro-Flo Tackle Bag
Hydro-Flo base allows water to drain out bag’s bottom for drying or rinsing of lures
Cavernous interior with 25 hanging bait compartments to house your large lures
Exterior pockets to secure all your tools, accessories and gear in easily accessible locations
Holds 25 hanging compartments, plus one 3700 Series StowAway

M-Series Messenger Bag
An Instant Tackle-Toting Classic
Plano M-Series Messenger Tackle Bag repurposes classic messenger design for anglers
picture of part

The “Messenger” bag used by so many students to carry laptops and books has some fascinating, historic origins. The very first versions of the utilitarian classic were used by Pony Express riders; a more refined version by utility linemen in the 1950s; and later, as the go-to, carry-all worn by traffic-weaving metropolitan bicycle couriers. Thank you, Kevin Bacon.

So what made the messenger bag so integral to these physically-demanding jobs?

The messenger bag proved superior to other totes for keeping heavy and bulky contents organized - also safe and within reach, all without causing carrier fatigue. So it’s really a no-brainer that Plano has co-opted and improved on the classic design for anglers. New for 2016, Plano is proud to introduce the M-Series Messenger Bag, a new take on tackle-toting destined to become an instant classic.

Comfortable and roomy, it’s a brilliant alternative to fishing backpacks and other tackle storage systems. First, it fits a ton of tackle. The M-Series Messenger Bag includes five 3600 Series StowAway utility boxes, although it will hold up to nine!

So, whether you want to set the M-Series Messenger Bag up for multi-species fishing - with a box dedicated to each kind of fish - or as an entirely species-specific tote there’s plenty of room. As for the exterior, 600 D Poly ensures years of durability. Plus, fold-down sides allow for quick access to leader material spools or other repeatedly-used items.

Additionally, an EVA-molded insert stores a 3600 StowAway in one side, while the exterior includes eight pockets plus two tool holders! Merging form and function, the M-Series Messenger bag’s look is also smart, clean and bold. A mix of olive green and cerulean blue with the bold leather Plano badge just signifies quality.

Specifics Include:
Plano #413900 M-Series Messenger Bag Includes five 3600 Series StowAway utilities Capacity: nine StowAway boxes Fold-down sides provide quick access to gear EVA-molded insert stores a 3600 StowAway in one side Exterior includes eight pockets plus two tool holders Size: 19”L x 13”W x 18’H

Trending Tackle Bags Showcase Aggressive Attitudes
Plano’s new T-Series Tackle Totes bring the bling but won’t break the bank

Competitive bassers to weekend casters, each angler works the water with his or her own brand of fishing flair; flat bill hat and Chuck Taylor Cons’ to skull cap with flip-flops. Dudes and dames each want statement-making gear that reflects their own ruggedly individualized attitude. So much the better if the stuff saves time and adds convenience.

Taming the totality of your tackle collection, of course, isn’t the easiest task on earth. So when all your jigs, cranks, topwaters, plastics, and swimbaits come together inside one stylish statement-making tote, somehow, it all makes setting the hook just a little sweeter. And perfectly portrays the progressive spirit behind Plano’s flashy yet functional T-Series Tackle Bags.

The aggressive new-look totes extend a stand-out style-rad patterns brought back to earth by a subtle brown base color. Per usual, Plano engineers went a step further, employing a special fabric that’s softer, tougher and built around a quick-access enclosure.

Competitive minded T-Series bags gift anglers with a three-tier approach to toting tackle: the T-Series Tackle Bag, T-Series Power Bag and T-Series Messenger Bag.

The T-Series Power Bag incorporates a totally new zipper-free design for granting immediate access to tackle. This enlightened blueprint also moves the stress-point of the bag away from what used to be the zipper to the buckle-straps, assuring even weight distribution and more years of rugged performance than ever.

With a continuing flair for thinking ‘outside the bag,’ Plano’s new T-Series Messenger bridges the gap between “wearable” backpacks and traditional shoulder-strap designs. This is accomplished by using a silhouette common in bags for other categories but sized specifically for fishing. The main compartment of the Messenger Bag holds eight 3600 StowAway boxes or four 3700s, while the front pocket carries an additional 3600 or other gear. Two more zippered side pockets plus exterior slip-pockets assure ample storage and versatility to the max.
