The Bud Bag by Bass Mafia
What sets it apart?
Bass Mafia has long been known for innovative tackle storage solutions. The brand-new Bud Bag addresses the issue that anglers always had with storing buzzbaits and spinnerbaits. Although Bass Mafia is calling this a spinnerbait/buzzbait storage system, it could be used to store a wide variety of lures. The Bud Bag comes with five binders with five compartments per binder for a total of 25 total compartments. The material used on the binders is the same durable material that is used to build the popular Money Bag. Between the heavy-duty zipper and a treated fabric that makes up the outer shell, lures are safe from water and potential rusting. The Bud Bag also has a little brother called the 2 Bud. The 2 Bud is the same design but a smaller profile with five binders and two compartments per binder for 10 total compartments.
How do I use it?
There’s no shortage of options when determining what to use the Bud Bag for. Just about any single hooked bait will fit perfectly in the Bud Bag — few examples: spinnerbaits, buzzbaits, jigs and vibrating jigs. My original thought was that the Bud Bag will be much easier to store in a boat and will take up less room, but then I got to thinking about how ideal the design would be for kayak anglers or bank fisherman as well. Both sizes of the bag would fit nicely into a crate or even a backpack.

One of the most frustrating things as an angler is finding rust on any favorite lures. Anyone can always replace hooks on a treblehook bait, but if you find rust on a spinnerbait, buzzbait or jig it’s as good as done. The Bud Bag will help eliminate that problem. As an angler who buys a lot of tackle — and I mean a lot — I’m always trying to figure out the most efficient way to store tackle in my boat and still carry as much equipment as I can. The Bud Bag is a step in the right direction for being efficient while still protecting equipment.
