    I was curious if anyone has tried the Okeechobee Fats tackle bags that Wal Mart sells? They are big bags for a good price, but I can't find anything about the company on the net, which is weird. Any opinions would be good. Thanks

    If its the same one iam thinking of it does get heavy when fully loaded. I bought one last year has side pockets a front pocket for sun glasses and screen on back and top. The only problem i have seen with mine is that the snaps on the plastic cases that come with it can be a pain at times. Not wanting to snap close. Other than that i really like the bag itself.

    Thanks for the replies. The price at my Wal Mart (Mason) is around $38. A pretty good price for a bag that size. Well, looks like I better go get one, off to Wal Mart.

    My uncle has one he just bought at Walmart. I like it, but I don't think I would really want it for bankfishing like I do most of the time. I would love it if I had a boat and kept it in there though!
     
  6. I just got one of these bags and I really like it. Yes it does get a little heavy, but I am usually fishing out of a boat anyway. I like that it has all of that storage space. My only question is what those two little strap things are on the front face. They look like pole holders, but I am sure that is not what they are for. Any ideas?

  7. Hello
    I Have One Also, They Do Get Heavy! But They Are Better Than The Other Bags I've Owned. Those 2 Things You Mentioned Are For Pliers Or Other Tools. I Like That You Have A Place Inside Flap For Storing Your Maps And Gps.

    Well, I made the purchase. I got the red one with I believe 6 boxes inside. Love it so far. Doesn't weigh near as much as my Flambeau bag did. Only thing I don't like is there is no spinnerbait box. I fixed that by buying one of those $5 Quantum binders and put my spinners in that. I really like those tool holders on the front, keeps the plyers right where I need them.

  9. i just bought a tackle bag from walmart also but i got the quantum bag that was almost as big as the okechobee fats bag but it was about 10 bucks cheaper it didnt have a spinner bait box either so modified one of my old boxes and took care of that for now anyway. :eek: :D
