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.

    •   Ok, well what color would he like? I got some left over rounded ones from the kids so he wouldn't stick himself even!
    •   Bahaha, was checking to see what the new slug for deer hunting maybe, also? 
    • PF - Sorry to let you down.  I see you are a slug expert!!!!
    • Sheesh.  I clicked on this from the recent topics page thinking there was a new deer hunting thread......  Get a spray bottle with a salt solution and give them a shower. I think water with Dawn soap might be an option
    • I am flattered fellas, but in rebs defense he did say " goodies" and not "goods" or he would have some explaining to do . between the different s.i.t.e.s.  were on I post no shortage of food shots ,so reb grab that scissors from leech lol. You pick up  a belly yet moon lake?
    • wren chick sat on a chair on the deck for over 2 hours. cute little bugger

    • I think last year was probably the best/first year we should have gone for it at the deadline so no regrets on that one. We got Pommers at the deadline as well but he had some years left and we were able to resign him and overall he has produced for us so no biggy there either. I'm sure we all wish we could take back the Matt Moulson trade back, that was the only bad one that cost us a couple of 2nd rounders and he looked terrible, but again hindsight is always 20/20. The rest were all minor deals that didn't do much either way.    Someone will get moved at some point, we just can't fill out a team and or sign Grandlund & Nino without it, at least not that I can see. Sounds like we had a deal for the Canadians first but their guy was there so they kept the pick, no problem with Fletcher being patient on the trade front, might have to wait until some teams don't fill their needs via free agency before a move happens. 

       
    • anyone else have any issues with ChartInstaller? I last used it on my laptop a month or so ago and it worked fine. I am getting ready to go to North Dakota for a couple days and wanted to download some areas to my card that I hadn't before.   I removed the sd card from my Hummingbird Helix and put it in the laptop. Opened the CharInstaller program that was already installed and was prompted to update. I downloaded the new Chart Installer.exe file and no matter how many times I download it, reboot and retry install etc it will not install. I just get an error "There has been an error. Unknown Error upacking file C:/Program Files (x86)/Chart Installer/nwjc.exe   So while doing the upgrade I lost my desktop icon with no software to update my chart. I understand there is a 1 year subscription but I just got my navionics+ and put it on this card last October.   Any ideas?
