How do you wear your surf bag?

I wear my plug bag on my belt with its belt loops and even though I have a quality surf belt, the bag can still weigh the belt down a bit. I know many guys just wear theirs around their shoulder with a strap but I feel like that'd get uncomfortable after a few hours of casting and 10 lbs of lures in the bag. How do you guys wear your surf bags comfortably and effectively?

Belt and shoulder strap is what I like. Shoulder strap adjusted so that Most of weight is on belt with just a tiny bit on shoulder to keep belt from not sagging down.

I do that when possible but most of my surf fishing is done wading out to rocks in Montauk

Years ago when I was a jetty jockey I would lay my bag next to me on a flat bolder.. Those were the good old days..

All my bags would last ten years or more because I would contact cement stipes of leather to bottom of the bag.. The stripes were usually made of old discarded belts that I outgrew..

I use my 4 tube over the shoulder. I just switch it from shoulder to shoulder as needed. My 2 tube is on a belt I tend to pack lighter when using it. So there’s not much of a problem with discomfort or sagging.

Yup, 2 tube and make plug selections based on area you’re fishing. I try to carry about 10 plugs total, and a handful of bucktails. If you pay close attention to your rotation, you’ll find about 6-8 plugs that never get fished, only add weight. The tough part is trying to find the cutoff point to what you want or need, to carry.

I wear mine attached to the rock hopper belt for beach and jetty.

Over the shoulder for wading the bay.

 

Talk about weighed down.

 

This fell out of my bag when I dumped it at one point last fall, I know I know...lol
