Lindy rig storage

9 posts in this topic

Sandbur,

The best way to store Lindys is to use the spinner tubes that you mentioned. Yes, you will have a difficult time telling which ones are which lengths unless you have a system established.

The best system I have seen is one used by my buddy. He is using the 4" rubber centered tubes (forget the brandname ; tacklebuddy? or something like that) He has 5 of them, one for 2', 4', 6',8' and 10'. He marks the end of each tube with a label indicating lengths (you could color code with nail polish too) and dedicates them to just those lengths when spooling on finished snells.

He stores the 5 tacklebuddies in a plano box (3600 series). Very organized and easy to identify quickly.

What I do is keep everything I need to make my snells and lindy rigs in a zip lock bag in my boat or tackle box. Then I just make them up as I fish, or make a few then put them on rods. Easy and fast. Doesn't take long to make them up, saves you money too.

There has got to be an easier way to store these things! Wrapping them around the tubes even sucks cause I can't tell how long they are till there off. Any ideas?

I agree with pro trapper, why make them ahead of time? I make them as I need, also you never know what length you need for the occasion, sometimes it's 3-4' other times it's 10-12', just keep the line on the spool and make as you go.

Also, I have found a real easy way to tie a "factory" type knot to the hook, it only take 15-20 seconds and it's just like the snells you buy. It's to hard to explain here but if you want send me an email and I'll try to explain it to you.

Thanks to all that have replied.

The reason I need something better is when your really into the fish over the rocks and your fighting a stout wind and you break a line you have to pull out of the groove to retie. I also don't like to retie during the night. I would rather pull out an identical out of the box an go. The rig roller does look interesting! Also a seperate box with just rigs could also solve the problem.

My old boat, a Skeeter 1850, had 7 foot rod lockers with lids about 40 inches long. If you opened the locker, the underside of the lid was lined with foam. I had screws at one end of the lid and could wrap the loop end of the rig to that end and hook the hook anywhere in the foam.

Man, I miss that boat.

Sand Burr, you are right. That same scenario happened to me last weekend. The wind was pounding on us and we were drifting snells. We lost two rigs and with the boat bouncing around, it's tough trying to re-tie and dig for tackle. I tie a loop at the end of all my snells and spinners like most people. I then just spin a new rig off the Rig Roller and i'm ready to go...

    •   Not only that, but the boy they're hitching their wagon to ( Nunes ) said this;   Snip. "But he also re-stated his belief that Obama did not order the wiretapping of Trump Tower"  
    •   Those are great names from the kids. They seem to know where they will end up in the end! Instead of sweety, cuddles, lovey........  Lol
    • For something different and a little less expensive you could consider a Texas hog hunt.
    • red wings are back, sand hill cranes calling  all kinds of Robins nice
    • Not nails but worse, they are self tappers from the metal roofing:)  Sorry, I need to take the angle grinder out there and zip those off this weekend.  Funny you bring up the name kabob, that is actually the name of one of them if they don't produce:)   Here is a short list of the names my kids came up with:   - Kabob - Soup - Nugget - Fried - Drummie - Pot Pie   I cant remember the others but you get the point...    
    •   I agree that in the long run, the very best thing that could be done is to completely repeal the ACA and then continue to reduce government involvement. The problem with that is this is a messed caused by government that would become a disaster at least short term for some folks if it were immediately repealed. At this point, government created the mess so it has an obligation to fix it with as little damage as possible to the people.
    •   No, I'm not totally discrediting any preventative measures, in fact I have stated time and time again that it is the best  safeguard against MOST diseases and other ailments. The fact though is that it will not safeguard you against EVERY ailment. You even go so far as to predict that you will still get cancer in your lifetime. If your preventative measures are a cure all, why do you believe you will still get cancer?   No matter how diligent you are with preventative measures you probably will not keep every ailment at bay. All I am saying is that when you are older you will find this out. I haven't seen anyone live forever yet.

    • I missed the parts in your linky that supported trumps twitter claims of illegal wiretaps ordered by obama.
    •   So when did you become more responsible or did you always eat this way and what event made you consider the change? I rest my case.   If youve made anything about your opinion known, that is not preventative, in fact its been the exact opposite. Youve told me time and time again that im young and wait until im older, totally discrediting any preventative measure.  Thats been your opinion Dave, however its more convenient to just type up some talk for who you think you are, but keep lying to yourself, probably the only one dumb enough to believe those lies.     Leech still believes that being a big meany cause cancer, like he was taught in sunday school.
