Any suggestions for Bucktail Box/Bin/Storage etc.....

6 posts in this topic

i currently use a bucket to store all my spinner baits and bucktails (hang em on the edge of the bucket)...any one know if there is a better storage option or something that works really well for hanging tails and spinners so they dont get so tangled and not organized???

The lakewood spinnerbait box is really nice, but it is gonna cost you some jingjing $$.

I use my older plano hanging bait boxes just for bucktails and spinners b/c you can pull out the dividers and make the spaces wide enough to put the spinners in a slot and have there arms in another slot w/o having to bed the arm. (I could throw up some pics later, if needed).

there is a divider system that fits in a pail, but not sure how it would work for spinners.

that is about all know

tight lines

The bucket deal is called something really simple like muskie bucket or something. I almost bought one but ended up with a Lakewood instead. I like it a lot but need to wear a weight belt anytime I move it.

A foam cooler is a nice alternative to the bucket, you can sink the hooks into the foam to keep them from moving and hooking each other. Although you have to search around to find the high quality kind that won't explode when you accidentally kick them.

They're probably not the greatest for a permanent tackle box but they're really nice to use as temporary storage when you're switching lures in the boat on the water - Attention Fall Trollers who are constantly switching lures trying to dial in depth, size, and color patterns.

Rollie and Helens sells a bucket insert for about $20. Seperates the baits well and holds around 20 bucktails pretty easily.

I have a Lakewood and like it, but it's heavy as HugoBox mentioned. It's a bit hard to see the lures though, as it's all black inside.

Another idea I've seen is to use a milk crate, it holds 16 tennis ball cansiters prefectly. Pretty cool idea really!

I've made a couple bucktail boxes from plastic file folder storage boxes. I drilled a holle every 1/2" around the edge and added a plexiglass center divider noched every 1/2". Works nicely. Total cost about $8. Not quite tall enough for DCG, but good for reg bucktails and spinnerbaits.

    •   Well may be instead of buying a few over priced pizza's and eating them while you're sitting on the internet Beoshing about others doing something with their time and money you can get off your atheist ars and go help the folks with a few blanks! Freeking Hypocrite much!

    •   Dave- I'm as disillusioned as you with regards to our two main parties and I've been known to lurk around the edges of the Libertarian camp. What keeps me from coming all the way in is silly stuff like this.   You're as delusional as an altar boy that thinks the priest wants to be his "friend" if you believe churches are going to fix anything. They never have and they never will.    If churches help the poor, why are there so many poor people?   Here are a couple great examples of christians helping poor people- 1- A group from my community just got back from a mission trip to some central american rathole where 27 men that paid over $2000 apiece to go 1500 miles to build what were more or less 3 garages for some poor community. A little time for sightseeing and photo taking and they are back home with tons of pretty pictures proud of themselves for doing gods work. 2- The wife just bought 3 overpriced crappy pizzas from my niece to fund her New Orleans mission trip. A bunch of kids will raise several thousand dollars from suckers like me, take a nice trip somewhere I never went as a kid, see some sights and paint a couple houses.   Meanwhile, we live in a county where real, abject poverty actually exists. Students of mine go to bed hungry, don't have enough blankets in their house and live in homes one wouldn't leave their dog in.
    • Last week I got my two Helix Mega in. I a lot of people ask me how I install them and how to avoid interference. Follow these tips and interference will be a thing of the past.

    • You really don't need much insulation under the ground slab, I like to use pole barn ins.[bubble wrap] or 1 inch r board [heat rises],gyp crete works but it is patented and can only be installed by certified and licensed factory contractors. they mix it on sight, it cant be mixed by youre local ready mix provider,as the formula is property of gyp crete.
