After some researching of some of the options it was down to the Plano Guide 7771, 777 or 787. The only difference between the 7771 and 777 was that the 7771 has 4 lure trays instead of the 2 two tier trays. What I like about both of 777's was that they both feature spinnerbait hanging racks, with quick access from the top and a secondary box for the others that don't get used as often.
The 787 is physically smaller, has a total of 9 trays and a rear pocket for putting maps, water bottle etc. After looking at all the options it was down to the 777 or 7771, then it was out of my control as my local only had the 777 in stock which made the choice a little easier. If it wasn't for the spinnerbaits, I probably would have gone the 787.
So this morning was spent cutting dividers and moving my lures from their existing trays into their new home. To say I'm pleased with the product is an understatement. The ability to have everything on hand, know where it is and not have to worry about it finding it's way to the bottom of the bag is a huge advantage. Below are some photos to give you an idea. A 10/10 for me.
Opening the clear lid on top will allow quick access to your go to lures and the separate lid on the right to give access to the spinnerbait rack.
Open the main lid to get to your other gear like leaders, pliers, head lamp and also comes with 3x 3500 series plano boxes shown the left (only 2 in the photo).
A secondary spinnerbait hanger is located on the front of the box with a separate hinged door for quick access.
The 2x 4700 two tiered trays which are accessed from the front.
The first tier of both trays.
The second tier of both trays.
In my opinion the Plano Guide 777 could be the ultimate freshwater fisherman's tackle box.
