Plano has hit it out of the ball park with this new bag design. The Plano Guide Series is extremely durable and well designed for anglers of any age. It comes in 3 sizes including 3600, 3710, Hydro-Flo 4674, and 3 Bass Pro exclusive sizes 3500, 3650 and 3750. With all of these various sizes available for prices that range from $52.99 to $96.99, you are sure to find the right size of bag for your angling needs.

Plano Guide Series2All Plano Guide series bags incorporate the same angler friendly features. They all come with five internal stowaway boxes and one stowaway on top held in by an elastic band and hook. They also include padded and labeled compartments for your pliers, sunglasses, cell phone, wallet, rear PVC mesh pocket for items such as lake maps or ponchos, a front zippered compartment with elastic bands to hold your scents and dyes, and a padded shoulder strap to give added comfort and support when carrying your bag to and from the water. As you can tell, this bag has a lot of compartments and pouches.

I have had my Guide Series 3710 ever since they hit the market at ICAST 2013. It’s durability and functionality is unmatched in it’s competition.  I’ve had my bag in snow, ice, rain, and extreme heat and it still looks and feels brand new. The zippers still function like new and are easy to zip open and shut. The elastic band still holds the top stowaway firmly in place and the molded lid is still holding it’s shape.  The stowaways inside the bag are a breeze to pull out and put back in and the shoulder strap is still holding strong. Overall, this bag has been time-tested and put through abuse to my approval!

Co-Anglers need to be organized and ready at all times. The less time a Co is looking and sorting through his tackle, the more time he/she has to catch fish. Plano’s Guide Series has 5 stowaways to keep just about any assortment of lures organized and 1 stowaway on top for quick access to lures one might need on a specific tournament day and the molded lid acts as a hard surface to work on.  The labeled compartments make quick and easy access to your tools and the front zippered pouch makes it simple to get to your scents and dyes. The back mesh pocket allows the co-angler to store a poncho, extra bags of soft plastics, or anything else they might need for their tournaments. This bag was designed for quick and easy access to anything a fisherman would need making it a great choice for any Co-Angler.
