Storage on Crank Baits

Recommended Posts

Just wanted to shot and see how you guys store your crank baits after using them. I have a weird way of doing it, but i wanta see what everyone else is doing. I take twist ties and fold the hooks under the bait, take the tie, and twist the hooks together, this way when you grab on lure, 40 of them dont come out at once, only that one. Whats everyone else doing.

I untangle them crazy.gif

Quick Q - Does anyone bend the front treble so it looks like a T for a better hooking percentage? I saw that on a show this past weekend. Made sense

I use the Plano storage boxes in my soft side tackle bag. Every crankbait gets its own slot. I think the box I use is 3771, its half as tall as the normal planos and allows diagonal dividers so I can pack in more baits. But of course thats not until after a couple of days sitting on the console. I like to leave the baits on the console to dry out before storage, reduces rusty hooks/split-rings.

Hi, my name is Tom and I'm an untangler..... blush.gif

I have found out that shaking them really works - sometimes they really do come apart....like on TV

As for the twist-ties - sounds like an awesome system but I can see my boat having hundreds of those things laying around on the floor. Would make it more time consuming to change plugs which is why my boat would have them littered all over the floor...I'm just too danged lazy to be that organized.

Daze Off

Bass,

I use the Falcon organizers. The trebles lay below the bait and if you have the right bait in the right box the trebles can't tangle. They have several sizes based on different sized crank baits. The thing I really like about them is they are thinner then a Plano and you can fit almost twice as many in the same area as Plano's. Check them out, they really make things a breeze. A little more expensive then the Plano but worth the extra money!

I have quite a few crankbait boxes... and will usually only bring along the boxes I think I will be using that day. Then if I know I will be using quite a bit of cranks I will pack a seperate box that isn't nearly as full with the "starters"...so I dont spend as much time untangling. Otherwise, I'm an untangler too...I havnt found a box that can hold enough crankbaits that doesnt take up too much room for the number of baits that it holds?...

I have a soft sided tackle box that has 8 of those boxes. I bought a few of the sealed boxes to. Work well, but I have (depending on the size of said crankbait) up to 5 or 6 per compartment so yes a tangled mess it can be. I have 2 crankbait boxes. The box that I use and the box that I don't tongue.gif

i have looked into the falcon ones as well but as dietz states they don't hold too many baits for the room they take up. But if you don't have that many cranks then they are probably perfect.

    • I'd like to see how the Helix handles interference.   Interference was the reason I went from my Interphase Video to a flasher. Currently using HBird Ice 45 and MarCum LX5.
    • I put all the boats put away,  subsequently the rain stopped.  I'll take that and finish pulling the dock in.
    • Posting.  Cuz I can’t sleep worth a dump.  Gonna be a MEA yahoo for most the rest of the week.  I’ve heard good reports from the friends that are already out there. They took the whole week so I’m driving myself out Tuesday night.     Just getting the the back of the truck filled with dekes got me too revved up.  Gonna be hard packing anything else besides waders, layout blind, guns and shells!  Who needs food and more than one change of clothes for 5 days anyway?!
    • I was ALMOST headed to Ely as well but opted to stick to “productive” pursuits at home, figuring I probably missed the October window this year.  That only lasted a day though before I headed west.   It looked really cool though.  Quiet too I bet.
    • I have a couple LX5s and have been very happy with them.  I had to get a second one for the wheelhouse since after I set it up for the wife, I usually go out hole hopping my original one.  Then come back with fish only cuz I was using the “cheat mobile”.    With the second one I was able to let her stare at it long enough to figure it out cuz apparently my teaching skills are sub par.  She normally wanted to have the camera down all the time but come dark, it’s kinda hard to see anything.     Who knew a wheelhouse and flasher would change her from a winter hibernator to an ice fishing addict.  She wants to go EVERY weekend now.     Anyone wanna buy a wheelhouse? 😉😂   Just kidding.... but I wish she’d wanna try for lakers every once in a while.
    • Was up in Ely over the weekend, darn windy and chilly Sat night.  You make it look so warm and fuzzy with the camp setup and fire. 😊
    • I have no doubt that by now there is something on the market that is better than my FL-20 and my FL-8 but I already own them and they work for me and I am long over the days where I have to have the latest and greatest fishing equipment.    Most of these gadgets, gizmos and lures are better at catching fishermen than fish.
    • My bird places nice with vexilars and doesn't get it too bad when there is a marcum in the next hole.   Keep my FL18 as a backup/loaner, it's been bulletproof.  But I haven't looked backed since I got an ice55 bird.
