You gotta have a place to keep all those fishing lures and accessories you buy every year. Tackle-storage makers answer the demand with new technology advances each year to give angler new, smarter, ways to keep and protect gear.

From specialized systems that allow you to customize your tackle storage based on fishing style and technique, to contain-all-you-need tackle packs that can double as a seat for shoreline anglers, much of the new innovations each year are unveiled at the annual ICAST trade show, this year being held online due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
