Designed by surfcasters for surfcasters, the Shimano Bluewave Surf Bags will keep you well equipped with everything you need for a successful day in the surf without weighing you down. Lightweight, compact, and built to last, these surf bags utilize convenient storage and carrying methods to hold just the right amount of gear without hindering your mobility. Available in two different sizes, the Bluewave Surf Bags utilize cylindrical tubes for storing larger lures like poppers and swimming plugs. The Medium size includes three tubes and the Large size includes four tubes. Beneath the tubes is a durable mesh bottom that allows for easy rinsing and quick drying of your lures. Internal pockets alongside the plug tubes are perfect for holding metal lures like tins and diamond jigs, as well as bucktails. Both sizes feature an easily removable carrying strap for slinging the bag over your shoulder, as well as integrated loops on the back for fastening the bag directly to your wading belt. This rugged surf bag is constructed from a heavy-duty rip-stop polyester fabric with double reinforced stitching at all seems for maximum durability. The heavy-duty TPU corrosion-resistant zipper closure is designed to resist wear-and-tear over time for smooth and consistent operation throughout the life of the bag.


  • Shoulder Strap & Belt Loops

  • Heavy Denier Rip-Stop Polyester Fabric
  • Strong Velcro Main Compartment Closure
  • Heavy-Duty Outer Liner Increases Rigidity

Well built.
November 22, 2016
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.

I really like this product...The material is strong and the price is Good. ..plug bags of this quality usually cost twice as much..I am going to eventually get the smaller one.

Excellent Quality

Love the lure bag, will hold up well surf fishing this year. Wish the width of the tubes a bit wider. Overall happy with the bag.

So far so good

After one season I'm satisfied with the carry-ability, payload and durability of this bag. I wish it was bigger but I was leery of a large bag when I purchased this bag. It's the perfect size for when you know what you're going to be throwing. Plenty of strap holders for tins and bucktails. Otter tails, leader pouch, finger tape roll, split rings, barrel swivels and fishing clips easily accommodated. Strap is long and easily adjustable. I can squeeze 6-9 plugs up to 8" inside. Some plugs will fill a tube slot while I can also fit 2-3 needles or SP/bomber types into another.

Nice entry level plug bag

Whether you’re a beginner or pro this bag is perfect for your plugging needs so you don’t have to run back to the beach to swap out plugs!

Great Bag
June 5, 2019
For the price, its definitely an awesome bag.. It has withstood the test of time. I try to wash it every time it has taken a dunk. Drainage is good, it's functional and, I have yet to loose anything to the surf. A pad on the shoulder strap would be nice, when the bag is loaded up it can get a little annoying after hours of fishing.

Great Bag For Fishing From Surf
April 30, 2019
I bought the Bluewave Bag last season as a smaller plug bag to fish the beach with and honestly works perfect not too big but it can fit anything in it. Pliers holder came in handy in waist deep water and it clips to your wader belt perfectly. Totally would recommend this product for anyone going out in the surf

A nice bag if you're not wesuiting
April 22, 2019
This is a nice simple surf bag. I use it as my night bag when I fish back bays, open beaches and jetties (basically any place where I am not going to really wade and get the bag wet). If you're going to wetsuit and swim out to boulders or wade deep and get your bag soaked, then this is not the bag for you. But if you keep it fairly dry, don't over load the bag, and fish from the sand, or maybe wading up to your knees then this a great bag that holds a ton of bucktails. 3/5 material is sub par and the square tubes means plugs get stuck in corners if you over fill the bag
ProsPrice. Fine for basic use in average conditions
ConsNot made for wet-suiting and fishing in more extreme conditions. (You will want an ODM bag or Gear up bag with a lot of Velcro if you're going to swim and fish really nasty wet conditions)

Good surf/plug bag for the price
March 3, 2019
The velcro on top is good for easy opening. A mesh on the side can fit 1 or 2 fat cow trailer container. can fit 4-8 plugs and a lot of jigs. the olastic mesh on the bottom facilitates drainage of sea water. helps keep all your plugs and jigs organized and available for easy access.

Perfect Surf Fishing Bag

This has greatly help reduce the clutter of gear while surf fishing and keeps everything clean and dry in a compact space. Perfect!

Great bag
October 17, 2018
Bought the smaller one. Hold a fat plus per square. But needle fish popper and a slender minnow can cram in one tube.

Lots of extra elastic bullet holder style loops for single hook lures like bucktail or tins.

I can fit all my go to option's for the surf and a spare.

The okumas bag uses the Plano box. That's a good swap bag. Go from bait to jetty to surf in a second.

I use the Shuman for surf and the okumas for bait on the jetty.

Great bag for the buck.

Good Bag
June 28, 2018
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.

from New Jersey asked:
November 6, 2018
On the small bag, B230, there are 4 white tubes so the pictures on your web site are of the larger bag which is showing 8 white tubes, is this correct ? Also does the smaller bag have the same spots for storing bucktails and tins like the picture shows on your website & the outer pockets also? Please clarify the differences since the picture seems to be of the larger bag and I would like a better idea of what the smaller bag looks like. Thank you, Mike.
1 Answer
They are the same exact bags just different sizes. Yes, both bags have the slots to store bucktails and tins.
