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.

    • Hey @rl_sd who had the meat on sale? Looks great btw
    • chicks maybe exploring what the beak is for
    •   You can also be a little creative with the leftover meat.  For example: The wife and I will whip up a spanish rice mixed in with the pork and make Enchiladas or heat the pork on the stove top, mix in some BBQ sauce and make quesadillas (the grandkids love them).   There's more to pulled pork than sandwiches.  
    • that is great!!!!   good for you guys!!!!
    • Your right rs_ld,  a full smoker is the way to go, leftovers can always be frozen and re heated..good eats.
    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change!
