Tackle Storage Tip from Peter T

I like to setup my Z520 to be efficient during tournament situations. One of the ways that I do this is to setup my fishing tackle from the front to the rear of the boat. In the front center compartment I keep my plastic boxes with all of my top water, crank baits and my tools such as culling pins, pliers, sunglasses, etc. in them. This allows the boat to perform better, because I am not overloading the front of the boat.  In the rear compartment, behind the passenger seat, I store my soft plastics, jigs and my terminal tackle (hooks, weights, etc).  By loading the boat this way, I keep the heavier tackle on the opposite side of the boat from where I am sitting.
