How do you keep jigs from snagging inside your rod carrier?


Recommended Posts

Even with the hooks hooked in the little wire hook holders on the rod they get snagged in the padding of my rod carrier. I was hoping they made some sort of small velcro folding type thing that could go over the lure and protect it. I know they used to make a larger version, but I wondered if there is a smaller one. I figured someone out there probably has a home remedy for this problem.

I use just about all the sizes as sometimes I have a small jig like a OPtic Stealth on and at times a larger eye jig. Since I strarted using these my tangled line problems have about stopped. I have one on all my rods with jigs.

Todays Tackle has done a fine job making this handy little pouch.

I see there are three sizes of the tackle pouch. What size is best?

I like Harv use all the sizes. But if you want to be sure, order the larger ones. The larger ones I use for larger lures like the angle eye and rattle varmints. Then I use the smaller ones on my panfish rods, but I dont see why you couldnt use the larget one, it would still work.

Better yet, make your own. For a buck's worth of velcro and a buck's worth of material (and 20 minutes on a sewing machine) you can make up a bunch that are exactly the size you need, and usually as good (if not better) quality that what you might buy for a few dollars a piece.

For my tipups, I use M&M'm Minis containers. Slice a notch in the side of the snap-top container and rubber band or zip-tie it to the tip-up or rod handle. Big enough to hold a jigging spoon or large treble hook, but secure enough to keep a micro-jig in place. These little containers are the perfect size for cotton swabs as well (great for camping or travel), and you get the bonus of eating some M&M's.

I'd think you could do the same thing with old film canisters or pill bottles, I'd figure out a way to tether the caps to the bottles so they don't get lost.

Try using small corks. i ordered like 100 of them, can't remember what size. real small ones. i keep em in my tackle box, pull them out when i'm storing my rods in the fishing bag. works really well, and cost is very little..

try it. i got mine on hsolist for $5.00

I use a HT bag, the only hooks I have trouble with are treble hooks. These bags are the cats meow, BTW. My dad swears by his round caddy that holds like 6 or so rods, the other day I went to get it out of his truck and got hooked by a swinging line.
