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.

    • I was glad I had scratchers on thursday,,,, after 7 miles on the trail my skid looked show room clean ,,, put the scratchers down and all was good ,,,Trails are still rideable up here but showing some snert,,, Gonna switch to ice fishing till we get some snow cover again 
    • I thought it looked cool, the way it unfolds.   Run time indeed is an issue, and it would probably take slogging through them one by one to tell.
    • U have to keep telling us.......
    • duurrrr whats a heat exchanger I sold my trail sled and only have my f/c ice fishing sled now.   I was thinking about buying a new trail sled beginning of this year but glad I didn't I just don't have time for both ice fishing and sledding oh the hardships I have   I wish I lived in the mountains I think snowmobiling would win over fishing
    • Have the 8" k-drill. Bought it at the fishing show. Had it out about 8 different times and love it. No complaints. Very light weight, drill about 20-25 holes out each time. Only on Monday did I have to use a second battery, had about 21 inches of ice. I have two 5ah batteries for it.
    • It was awesome.....it is not exactly a new thing for presidents to lie, but the guy actually brought in clappers to clap for his lies about pee and crowd gate.....as this means somehow he wasn't lying his a$$ off?  Watching Spicer later in the day trying to provide cover for the boss was almost painful. ....if it wasn't so funny. No clappers there    #sidetrackedfromallthefirstdaypromises
    • Looks like great sub-flooring but not sure how well chip board products would hold up for a trailer top? Even if it's a covered trailer the slush and salt will do a number on the bottom side I would think? For the cost I would just put some 5/8th treated plywood down.
    • I used to sip cognac with a beer and I didn't even get in to whiskeys or bourbons until 8 or 10 years ago, so as a novice I started with the Canadian blends like Crown, Tangle Ridge and Pendleton and I'm more of a sipper using the old fashioned glasses.  I can't give recommendations on any of the really good brands, but if you ever see some of this... run screaming from the bar.  
    • Catfish is right up there with walleye, perch, trout, steelhead, salmon, flounder, grouper.....
    • What does it matter what Bernie Sanders had figured out considering the DNC blatantly rigged the primary against him? And then they tried with all their might to do it again and were exposed.   Face it, you party is fueled by people who are showing that they are the very ones they claim to be fighting against.    Immoral, intolerant, violent, judgemental and full of hate.
