Hook Storage

9 posts in this topic

I'm trying to find a way to store my hooks. I don't like Plano style boxes because the hooks have a tendancy to slide all over, so I'm looking for something that I can leave the hook in its original package for easy separation and identification. Anybody have a system they use that works well? I think I remember someone mentioning a CD case...that may work well.

Just thought of this, find a plastic box thats used to hold recipe cards or 3x5 notecards. You could put the hook packages in and separate each style/size with a note card and on the front of the note card write what they are for easy access

That could be a good idea. Hopefully I could find one small enough to fit in the side pocket of my tackle bag.

I've pondered this for ever and tryed a few of the same things. I guess what I have now is a good quality box that does NOT have the removable/movable seperators. It has worked very well for me and is much easier in the long run. Very few times the hooks will jump compartments.

My dad used to buy magnetic strips w/ a sticky back and put them in the bottom of the compartments in his old planos. I just use small pocket size boxes for lindy rig components and hook storage.

I just use the small zip lock bags, maybe 2.5"x1.5", and just separate the hooks by size. I just store those small bags in the Plano boxes. I really don't have that many different sizes. I use 10, 8, 6 for panfish and walleye. All the bigger hooks I may use for bass or pike are stored loose in the Plano style boxes.

In another recent post someone had mentioned a small flip style hook storage case. I think it was referred to as a wallet. It had multiple pockets. I want to say it was made by Rapala.

I use a small molded tackle box with roughly 1.5 inch square compartments that do not have removable dividers. I believe there are 3 rows and 5 columns. Works well and fits in the top of my soft sided tackle box.

Mozy,

Take a look at my Tackle Pouches. www.todaystackle.com

I have put many hooks and jigs etc in the Tackle pouches. They are clear bendable plastic with velcro. They also fit right into a plano tackle boxfor storage. You can put them in your pocket and even wrap (cover) your jigs on your rods to prevent tangling! The size (A) is the smallest which will accomodaye you.

I just use one of those older style screw together, stackable, things. They're kind of like little jars all hooked together. I just have different sizes &/or colored hooks in different compartments. I store this in the big open area of my box. Spare trebles I keep in a 35mm file cannister. That fits right in between the trays in one of the plug boxes.

    • That little doe is a sweetheart. Reminds me why I gave up hunting. But I did it for more than six decades from MN to MT to AK and Canada. Before somebody jumps in with a snide  comment, I don't care if YOU do it but it is just not for me any more. Carry on. Nice pix....couple nice looking bucks.

    • I agree; stay away from the extended warranty.  If my dealership (Village Chevrolet) won't honor the original warranty, what makes you think they will honor an extended warranty?  This problem was discovered well before my warranty ran out and they still treated me like an ugly sister...

    • You two must be elitist walleye guys. 
    • I can't say I'm much in agreement with Gary Johnson on this issue and I can admit it. I will say however that it makes more sense than the deal Pence struck with Carrier.   1. The carrier deal handed away state money while still being a net LOSS of jobs in that state. Johnson's program enticed new business into his state and resulted in a net GAIN of jobs and probably tourism dollars as well.  2. I think these types of deals should be handled as locally as possible. It's called representative government. Maybe it makes sense in the New Mexico deal that it be handled at the state level since it probably effects the state as a whole at least to some degree but I don't know. The Indiana deal should have been handled locally, especially if any of the tax cuts promised were property taxes. Those benefit communities at a more local level and the jobs saved benefit communities at a more local level. The state government possibly should not be handling these things but the Federal Government most assuredly should not be involved in these deals.  3. I'm pretty sure that the threat of interference with federal contracts had much more to do with the Carrier deal anyway so why did they give Carrier any tax breaks? I thought Trump was a tough guy and a strong armer? In the New Mexico deal, tax cuts are about the only leverage someone would have to bring that extra revenue and jobs into the state.   I'll say it again, I'm really not in favor of the government picking winners and losers. I do think the Pence deal is something that happens every day but the only difference is it happens at a local level and you don't have a blow hard President-elect taking credit for it normally. Time will tell whether it was a good deal or if the rest of the manufacturing community will hold the Government for ransom now like every professional sports franchise does these days.    Gary Johnson is in favor of replacing the current Tax code with a 'Fair Tax" system.
