Hook Storage

Recommended Posts

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.

    • It might be better to buy a small second unit and link them.    My guess is what you want is not something enough people want to justify implementing.   Personally I have a hard enough time watching a bobber.
    • Welcome to the Forum.  What brand gun is it? Would help to pick choke tubes out.  Size 6 shot should do the trick, but I'm sure more folks will chime in here. 
    • I upgraded my electronics this year to a Humminbird Helix 10. I love it so far with the exception of not being able to split the screen into 4 separate screens. The max that you can do is 3. I would really like to be able to have the map, sonar, down imaging, and side imaging on the screen at the same time while trolling. I emailed tech support and they said it's not something that is an option at this time. Right now when I'm fishing I switch back and forth between map, sonar, and DI and sonar, DI, and SI. Is there anyone else that thinks this should be an option? I don't know see why you can't customize the screen to show whichever features you prefer instead of only using the preloaded options that Humminbird decided on. I have thought about emailing the company weekly asking if they have that ability yet but wanted to see if anyone else thinks it should be an option. 
    • I just purchased a used 20 gauge for my 14 year old daughter. I hunt mostly state land for pheasants. It is a 2 3/4 auto with interchangeable chokes. What size steel shot and choke tube would you recomend for her?
    • I just got back from a work trip to MI. I could not believe the difference in ground cover. We traveled all the way from Dearborn back to Bemidji heading through the U.P.  Most of MI had very little ground cover but WI was flush, green everywhere! I only got to check a few spots at rest areas but I never saw a thing. The ground was dry at most spots on the way home. I'm gonna go hit my spot tomorrow, hopefully it hasn't been picked yet!
    • love those when ya see them!!!
    • Took the kayak crappie fishing opening weekend and when calm always bring with the DSLR with. These turtles are glad the weather has finally consistently warmed up. I always find it funny seeing turtles stacked on top of each other and found a few along with multiple species which was nice.     
    • I was going to hunt wi this weekend but fishing musky with my fly rod is what I will do instead.  Good luck!!!!!!!
    • Anyone still at it?   not sure that i will get Isaac out anymore, will still ask these last few days.   Good luck everyone.
