Spinner Bait box

Recommended Posts

Is there a Plano or commercially available box for holding the larger sized spinner baits we use for muskies, that isn't already the size of tackle box itself? Ol' Matty, you said you were planning on making one. Have you completed it and how did it turn out? I prefer not laying them flat on top of each other in a shallow open Plano-type box without the dividers, which is basically what we're doing now. Any suggestions?

Found it... it's called a Shimano Baraja Tackle Binder. jumbo or monster sized i'm sure would work for you. just need to make sure they are dry i suppose before storing though. hope this helps.

Lakewood makes a spinner bait box as well that is pretty small compared to their other boxes. They are around 50 bucks though. Reeds or Thorne Bros should have them.

Yes they do (for bass sizes) and I remember looking at one last year thinking that it would work pretty slick but never pulled the trigger. Sorry, I don't have a clue what the brand was. Sinnerbaits take up 3 times the room as inlines.

So like a vinyl softpak deal? I'll check it out.

yeah, clear vinyl. never really held one but in the pics i don't see holes, and i didn't look real close when i saw it... i think at sportsmans warehouse... but this got me thinking (thanks a lot props cry) of an idea for a breathable folder. now to find the ''stuff'' to make it. i normally just take three or four in a lakewood at a time so i never thought about it before. let us know how it goes, huh?

The Bailey Pac is a suitcase style spinnerbait pack, that I designed a few years ago. You may have seen it at one of the Muskie shows in the last few years.

You can check them out on my HSOforum or come and see them at the MN Muskie Expo. They are much better quality than any of the fold up stuff you'll see at the stores.

They even float, so you won't ever have to worry about dropping them in the water.

I purchased a lakewood muskie medium box for my spinnerbaits. It has 3 rows of 4 squares with 2 slots in each square.

The way I put them in is two to a square (call it square #1, one per slot in the square) with the spinners in the next square (#2)..say...to the right. Then, I move to the third square (#3), and put two more bodies in there, with the spinners going back into square #2. So...you get 4 spinners into 3 squares, and you can repeat that for the next three squares on the same row. Then, row 2 does the same thing, as does row 3.

So...by the time you are all filled, you have a total of 24 spinnerbaits in the muskie medium box, and if it tips over, you don't have a mess of hooks to untangle...just two hooks.

I picked up a Magnum Tackle Logic soft side folder for $6.97 and put a dozen spinnerbiats in it last night and it works like a charm. It freed up about 1/4 of my Lakewood coffin. It didn't come with enough bags, but a quart size ziploc will hold even the biggies with the #10 blades. I'm a huge fan - now just need to fill up the empty space in the Lakewood... wink

Where'd you get that Erik? Can you just add ziplocs to it - are they like a 3-hole punch binder system?

Hi Keith-

Sportsmans Warehouse. I think you could get them anywhere - I just saw it for cheap and picked it up. To add Ziplocs I just added some duck tape to the bag so i could punch holes for the rings. So far I have about a dozen safety pin spinnerbaits in there as well some jigs. I'm also thinking of adding some of my smaller spinnerbaits. The space savings is amazing. My real camera crapped out on me but I'll send Hunter a text with some pics tonight. If I get by there this weekend and they still have them on sale I can pick one up for you and give it to you at the expo.

Bailey pak works great for me last four years or so.

Hold bunches of big time spinnerbaits for me...M&G to huge Longtails...good mix...also easy in an out of rig an hound proof.

Lays flat, take up about as much room as a daily paper.....plus if full you can hang a bunch from insert holder deals an just fold in an they stay put.

Purdy sweet.

smile

Very classic type spinnerbait holder for sure.

Before that we used plano flat boxes..the 3 inch high ones...forget number...dump incerts.....cut V in sections halfway down to bottm of box....lay spinner in there...works like a dream an top of box keeps baits inplace.

Cheap easy way to go....but can't go wround with Bailey pak.

Thanks Tommy,

I have them on sale right now and will ship them anywhwere for FREE!!!

The pack has 12 compartments I put 3 baits in each one so they will hold 36 baits with no trouble. It floats, even with a full load of baits in it and it has a handle so it's easy to carry. They will fit in most storage compartments of any boat as well.

They are self contained so you don't have to put them in some other kind of bag or box. Just grab the handle and go. You can also see all the baits when you open the pack. You don't have to page through it to find what your looking for.

Shoot me an e-mail if you want to get more info. Otherwise I will have tham at the Muskie Expo in April, where you can see them in person.

For spinnerbaits, I have been using the "Hybrid" Lakewood (which is really big), and the Dunwright tubes that fit on the post of the butt seat. Most of my friends know that I use the dash and the floor as much as anything. So far no injuries or lost lures, but there certainly have been some interesting stories to go with the mess (it usuually involves someone trying to net my fish with a bag full of lures)! I really should be more organized...this Bailey Pak has definitely picqued my interest.

    • Anyone still at it?   not sure that i will get Isaac out anymore, will still ask these last few days.   Good luck everyone.
    • Haha, sounds like you have a good head on your shoulders and great perspective, Borch.  Plus, I think it's good to be upset about missing!  It motivates a guy to take more selective shots and make better shots.  My shot selection was ok, but my execution was not good.  I made a good shot at a stationary target, but the target was walking.  D-U-M, dumb!!!  Such is life!  Next year Morgan and I will shoot turkeys (as long as I can still get her out there).  
    • From what I read the idiot did not tell anybody....was asked to play in the World's and declined saying his wrists hurt so they made him go in and found the torn tendons...what a duffus.
    • It reminds me if the first year I took my son turkey hunting.  He had several close calls but didn't get a bird.  He was upset.  I said, "Why are you upset?  We got to hunt together for several days and had several exciting encounters.  If you shot one the first day we would have missed all that fun together"  He thought about it for a while and he smiled.  The older I get, the less its about the kill.  Reframing what I thought success was has added to my hunts.  Now, if I could get less upset when I miss a bird I'd have it all figured out.  
    • Excellent.  Nicely done.
    • You got it, Borch!  I was disappointed with how the season ended, but you're definitely right!  I also learned a trick this year- cards!  Morgan really enjoyed playing cards with me in the blind.  It was a good way to pass the time and we enjoyed it quite a bit.  We had a great season together and enjoyed it a ton!     That last encounter we had was really something!  I'm convinced the worst thing birds can do to a bowhunter is to come in to the deeks is stand there and stare.  I'd rather they hung up and didn't come in or did pretty much anything but that.  It makes it virtually impossible to get a bow drawn!  The turkey was at about 5 yards, because I knew we I needed one close for Morgan.  However, at five yards and staring directly in the direction of the blind, she was smart to not try to draw.  That dang bird stood there for two full minutes and didn't move a muscle.  Morgan had a smile from ear to ear and at one point told me "I was so excited and my heart was pounding so hard I thought I might die!"     It would have been a slam dunk with her crossbow, but she wanted to get one with a vertical bow.  I'm proud of her for sticking with it and she said "I'm just fine with not shooting one, Dad."  I'm glad she's ok with that.  I wish I was more ok with it...  but, that's hunting!  
    • Sounds like he is going to bring "fire" to the team haha.  Hoping he can come up with something to do with all the aging players who aren't living up to their contracts.     Also heard that Coyle played the last 2 months with torn ligaments in his wrists.  Going in for surgery.  Kind of an eye opener really, Coyle with torn wrist ligaments is better than anything they could've moved up that is healthy?  Uh oh....
    • Hey, it's all good. Morgan and you spending time together in the outdoors and getting a close encounter is what it's all about.     Sometimes the birds win and we simply run out of time.
