Jigging Spoon Storage

What do you guys use for this? I have a beckman product and would like to get more but can't find them anymore.

I just keep mine in a small Plano case that fits in one of the pockets of my Beckman rod case.

I use Today's Tackle storage pouches. Less banging around inside the tackle box and a lot less hook tangling. These pouches full of tackle fits fine my small ice tackle tray.

Find it here at Outdoor Pro Store

I think this is what you are referring to?

I use the small plano boxes. However, I also cut a wine cork in half lengthwise. I put the hooks in...usually can fit 6-7 spoons on a half of a cork. Not as many tangles. and I can sort them to size/shape/type/etc. Kind of nice with cold hands...I don't have to sort through and untangle treble hooks. I just pick up a section of cork, look to find the right spoon, and tie on!

Intersting idea, I may have to give that one a try. This would realy be handy for spoons with trebles - they love to get tangled in to an interlocking ball smirk

Thanks for the tip.

Yep, I'm glad I could pass on the tip.

I thought of it...surprise...sorting jigs,spoons, and the like while, yes, drinking wine.

It can be a little tricky cutting a cork in half lengthwise. I used a method not recommended...holding it on the counter with one hand and cutting it with a steak knife. Safe to say, I had too much wine that evening. crazy

If I did it over again, I would probably utilize a vise some how and a little hand saw or dremel tool.

Here's what I've been doing for 4-5 years now.

Got about a dozen of these boxes full of spoons organized by manufacturer and style.

Hanson,

How in the world do you decide which boxes to take with you on any given trip?!?! All those pretty spoons all lined up so nicely.

Those Glo-Devils get me going. You reminded me that I need more firetiger patterns for my Glo-Devils!

Hanson, I thought I was pretty organized with my stuff. But, you bring it up to a whole diffrent level ... very impressive.

Hanson your way to organized! LOL..Smart system..I like it.

I recommend the type of storage box's with the Zerust Blue tab dividers. These rust inhibitor impregnated box's will keep your wet jigs from rusting off the hooks and split rings.

Lots of size options to fit most anglers needs around to chose from. Every Gander Mountain soft side tackle box comes standard with them now, and they are widely available separately.

They work, I have no rusty jigs, hooks, or cranks all season long now from switching to them. I tend to ride my tackle hard and put them away wet...I need the box to take up my slack..(I'm a slacker..Eh)...as I'm not nearly as organized as Hanson is. wink

I also like and use the Today's Tackle storage pouches. I especially like the size "C". I call it my Chubby Wrapper....Ah..Yupper...It's Always safer to "Wrap that Rascal Chubby". smile

Beege - I believe those are fly boxes that Hansen posted. Anywhere you find fly fishing gear, check there.

Fly Fishing Boxes. These particular ones are from Gander Mountain. I searched and searched for something that would work well and the Gander boxes have worked the best. Cabelas sells them too but the box sizes and shapes are a bit different and I didn't think worked as well.

The black "stuff" on the left side of the photo is foam weatherstripping that I picked up from Menards. Its adhesive on one side. I have a couple layers of weatherstripping stuck down to eachother to get more height. When you shut the lid, the weatherstripping compresses against the spoons and holds them tight. They don't shake, move, or become tangled at all.

I've been doing this for about 4 years now. It takes up a little more space but I've never had to replace a spoon because the paint chipped off or anything like that. If I do happen to lose a spoon to a fish, I know which ones I'm missing so I can buy replacements. Its a pretty effective storage system.

    • One reason for me to be muzzleloading is to scout areas for next bow season.  I liked this low area I found yesterday.  I got a good feel for how the deer use it.  Saw one small 8 and had two put their tracks in mine, but out of sight.  I'd hunt it differently with a bow.  
    • wear a good balaclava and get a open face with a cold weather breath box never had a problem
    • In my opinion I would look for a nice used wingmaster 2 of my friends have bought a new 870 express about a year apart and they both had the same shell extraction problems. Maybe just a fluke but when I see two different people have the same problem with a Gun makes me think to find a different choice. Heck I have a Mossberg 500 that I treat like poop and I have never had one single malfunction.   I have shot my friends newer express and I can really tell the difference in quality beside my wingmaster  
    • I have Ice Kings.  They are in a word, awesome.  They are about 20-25 years old. Dang I hate dating myself but I have never even bought new liners for these boots.  They are probably one of the finest products I won.  I have never had so much as a chill i my feet.  I usually fish outside but if I am in a flip over, my feet are usually on the ice.  Again, never a chill.  I typically wear a midnight smart wool sock.   For some reason I have been considering new boots.  I guess it is the weight, I would love to have something that is not s heavy and also has better traction.   Today I visited Joe's Sporting Goods and saw some really nice boots (they have a great selection) by Muck, Lacrosse, Sorel, Baffin and some other Canadian made boot that looked very nice. I checked out the ice Kings........they are not the same boot as I have, they don't seem to have the quality to me.  They might be as warm but the rubber feels more stiff almost like it would crack, the uppers are solid leather, mine are leather and corder combo.  The liner also seemed thinner.   After looking at all the boots, I am surprised none offer water proof uppers. Also I am not entirely certain why some seem extend up to your knee with insulation.  Just seems like Over kill because most who would where these boots owed also have some sort of insulated pant on.  Overall I found the boots to be pretty heavy, I was surprised with 20 years past boots have not advanced more.
    • But will be missed but most.............you mad bro?    
    • You boxed yourself.   He was not supporting the Vikings stadium, he was saying that Republicans supported it and now are feigning outrage over the cook subsidy. And then not to be outdone the Republicans are now celebrating the Carrier subsidy.   Pretty much just reinforced his point.      
    • Think we should change the topic to "Trump for Trees."........and all will be well.
    • Had to go all the way back to Missouri to hunt in the snow this year! Beautiful morning but not much movement. Did see some late rut activity Friday.
    • Dotch, you guys over there are almost famous....   Almost because it is Waseca, but whatever.    Mark Seeley's weather blog... http://blog-weathertalk.extension.umn.edu/   .... Waseca now reports 54.13 inches of precipitation for 2016 and this is a new statewide annual precipitation record, surpassing the old one of 53.52" at St Francis (Anoka County) in 1991.
      ....   And an interesting thought...(from Mark, not me) Commentary on Winter TIME: No question will be answered this week, but I want to take TIME to make a comment about Winter TIME. Managing the TIME in the Winter Season in Minnesota is a different ball game than other seasons of the year, because everything takes longer. No question winter will be felt more frequently soon in the daily weather, and snowfalls will become more frequent this month. The rash of bicycle, pedestrian, and vehicular accidents reported during the snow storms towards the end of November reminded me about adjusting for Winter TIME. Our concept of time needs to be adjusted. Lengthen the time intervals that you have intuitively built-into your everyday habits and tasks. It takes longer to walk places, longer to drive places, longer to dress and undress, longer to warm up the car, longer to degomble (shed snow) when you come into the house. You need to make time to shovel snow, scrape the windshield, clean the furnace filters, When you walk take shorter steps and not too fast...put the boots, gloves and hat on when you go outside....check on the neighbor if their place hasn't been shoveled...everything should slow down..except for the long Minnesota goodbye..that is better shortened...just say goodbye, open the door, leave and close the door behind you....no need to stand in an open doorway for minutes conversing about last minute stuff. Winter TIME is an adjustment that may save you anxiety, regret, or even injury.
