Now that I'm starting to stock up on Senkos, Yum Dingers etc. ... What it the best way to carry them around? At the moment I toss them all into my fishing back pack but its not real organized.

keep colors sorted so they don't bleed onto each other.

Keep your plastics in their original packages, put them in freezer bags, they come in assorted sizes, and throw them in a back pack, or get a double sided worm wallet, they come with 10 sealed pages in front and 10 in back, with places to keep hooks and bullet weights.(BassProShops carry them):D

I agree with shamoo...
be aware that many plastics on the market today have petrolium based ingredients and can cause harm and damage to your tackle system.
The plastics that have scent on them already can use a dab or two of some extra scent for storage.
Worm oils and amino acid fish attractants will not cause a break-down of the bait.
As shamoo states...certain brand plastic bait colors do bleed and it is very important to keep everthing in your tackle system clean.maintained,seperated and protectected at all times.
Everything from reels and rods (rigs) down to your lines should always be kept spotless and as new.
These are the "Tools of the Trade" when you are an avid angler.
BTB tip...Use an old sweat sock and pull it up over the butt(cork) end of the rod and proceed to cover your reel when in transport or storage.
The socks make for great reel covers if you do not want to spend on reel covers.Also...Cork drys out when not stored properly.
I like to use Falcon and Plano worm boxes for my daily adventures,however,for long term...the original packaging and freezer bags!
I also Label everything with a P-Touch Label maker.
