Well built.
I was at first skeptical of this bag due to all the high end products on the market. Upon receiving this product I immediately noticed how well built it was. Another plus was that it can carry a ton of gear. Plugs, bucks, tins and plenty of room for leaders and other necessities.

Good Bag
Bought the bag for surf casting and fishing the Cape Canal. Have been pleased so far, the bag is well constructed and stores enough plugs, metals, etc. to give you plenty of options to fish. Overall a good bag for the money. If you are looking to carry a lot of plugs may want to consider a different bag as larger plugs you can only fit one per sleeve.

do not buy
bought this bag thinking that the reviews were accurate. well to begin the bag opens to the front with velcro, if you take a good wave it can open ( seen u tube videos of this happening to other people) the issue i have had was the entire corner pulled apart after 1 week of fishing the cape cod canal. i was not even fishing hard , leaving the bag on the rocks while casting . there is no reason this should have happened and now the bag is unusable. beware this product is not made well. i am currently looking for a better quality bag and seriously regret my purchase,wish i had just spent the extra up front so i didnt not have to endure this nonsense
Proslots of storage
Consvelcro opening to the front and bag falling open, the stiching on the corners is not strong and poorly thought out

Very nice
Wasn’t sure what size to get but I’m glad I got the small one. Holds plenty of lures, pliers, leader wallet, etc. Quality material. Strong Velcro. Side pouch just big enough for a 12oz bottle of water. Good bag for the money.

Shimano BWVSB250 Bluewave Surf Bag
Great surf bag. I took out the dividers to gain more room and save some weight. After using for 4 seasons the only complaint is the metal clips on the strap are starting to rust slightly but not a big deal. Holds plenty of tins and bucktails easily. No easy place to place swim shads or plastics but still a good bag.

Great bag for the buck
Have used for the last 3 season, you cant beat this bag for the money. Other higher end bags are hitting 200 clams. Never had any issues, some minor rusting on the grommets, but frankly, thats my fault. Spots for metals, bucks, and plugs. Side pouches for otter tails. Plenty of clips and spots for pliers and grips. It is a little much for a belt pouch alone, I wore it more as a satchel.
Pros - Great price - Great durability - Great functionality
Conslittle large (even the small one) for wearing just on a wading belt.

Great starter bag.
I got this bag when I was first getting geared up for surf fishing. It is easy to use and well built. Perfect for an array of lures, and fair price.
ProsFits lots of different lures and doesn’t break the bank.

Great bag
This bag can hold alot of stuff. I have pencil poppers,jigs,swim baits and soft plastics all in this bag and still have room for more stuff. Bag is very useful for long walks and not bulky like other bags
ProsHolds alot
ConsThere are two straps where you store all the jigs and it doesn't opens all the way so i had to cut it so it could open all the way othere than that its my only complaint

Nice bag needing some minor improvements
When I purchased the bag I thought that it was made very nice which is the case after 5-6 uses so far. My issue is that it doesn't really fit Ava jigs in any slot as it's either bring all of your bucktails or bring all of your Ava jigs in the box.
ProsA lot of room for plugs. Made well.
ConsItems fall out of the slots made for bucktails and Ava jigs.

Affordable, Very Well Made, Great value
Was hoping to purchase the large Surf Bag ... but couldn't wait. Drains well. Compact fits most of my plugs, the larger plugs are an issue for me. But honestly, I have so many plugs that I'll need one more surf bag away. Great price point, love the compartments and pocket which offer plenty of flexibility. In my humble opinion, it's well-made and solid. I would definitely recommend this bag.
ProsExcellent value at price point Flexibility Compartment and pockets
ConsTreble hooks can get caught

Can fit everything I want for a trip. The plug box dividers are tough to get hooks off, but not as hard as getting them off the bottom of the compartment, so keep them on. Great if you carry a lot of bucktails or tins.

great off the shelf bag!
look, we would all love to have a custom bag that has all the little accoutrements to fit our style of fishing. but how many can afford that. this bag offers a good amount of storage space. durable, can take a pretty good beating and still survive. sleek design too. plenty of drainage. probably more than some custom bags in my opinion.
Prostop velcro flap flips out and away from you instead of toward you. its very annoying to try and search through a bag who's top flap opens toward your body when its attached to your belt. compound that with a lot of other gear, surf top, waders etc etc etc. and youll obviously have a very frustrating situation. internal dividers with hook holders are a plus when you have smaller plugs, but can also be a pain if they get caught sliding back into the insert. multiple spots for bucktails and tins separated by a plastic divider, which is great for keeping hooks from getting tangled.
Conslarger plugs wont work well with dividers. dividers can also be a pain sliding back into the insert sometimes so be aware of that. belt loops will fail on you. I had to glue them back on and attach a shoulder strap to take pressure off the belt loops.

great bag for long walks
I fished using the Bluewave surf bag from Cape Cod to Cape Hatteras, with everything from poppers to bucktails. Had to swim with the bag a few times and never woried about losing a lure. it's heavy when filled but not really a problem. other reviews warned about the construction, but mine is fine.

Very Well Made Bags!
Being an avid user of Shimano Reels, rods, and apparel, it was only natural that I give this bag a shot. And I am glad I did. If you use Shimano Reels and Rods, then you know how well made, durable, and reliable, they are. Same holds true for these bags. Very well made, laid out, and practical. As well as durable, and well thought out. I actually started with the small bag. Using it for a couple of years, until my lure arsenal became larger. I then bought the medium bag, giving the small one to my Brother in Law. After 3 seasons with the small bag, in the surf, he thought I bought him a new bag! The main differences between the small and medium bag is; 2 extra vertical plug holders(divided in half by black dividers), medium bag has a larger side pouch to hold a small box(small one has a pouch to hold 2 jars of pork), and a larger area in order to store more tins, bucktails and diamond jigs. Both bags have a pliers sheath secured with a Velcro strap on the narrow side, tin, bucktail and jig holders, and vertical plug tubes divided in half with black dividers. Both have a large D ring on the back side of the bag with a large carabiner so you can clip it onto a D ring on your wader belt, taking pressure and weight off of your neck from the strap. They also have a large D ring on side near where the strap is secured, above the pliers sheath to secure your pliers lanyard or anything you may have. And 2 drain holes in the bottom of the bag. The bag closes with commercial grade heavy duty Velcro. And the material the bag is made out of is also heavy duty. And the strap is included with both bags. And lastly, the price of both is great and affordable. I could not find a bag, made of such high quality as these, for under $100. And then the quality of some of the bags for over $100 were questionable. And you have to purchase the shoulder strap separately for some of the others! I am very happy with this bag. And I am sure you will be as well. Be well!
ProsHigh Quality, durable, practical, well though out, large enough to hold a great many plugs, tins, bucktails and jigs, affordable, comes with an attached carabiner to secure bag to your belt, shoulder strap is included

reasonably priced surf bag
This is my first surf bag. I like the layout of the bag- it opens out- which keeps my gear accessible without worry for stuff falling out. I bought a bigger bag because I needed more room and end up using both because I am worried that the other bag will cause me to loose my bucktails and metal. The shimano bag is perfect for carrying the bucktails and metals.
Proswell organized- opens out
ConsThis bag is the small one- so the plug compartments are small- the black sliding hook holder thing is pretty much worthless-
