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.

    • Remember, he liked the neighbors food after he tried it. 😋
    • I fished most of the lake in scout mode today.  Found walleyes early on midlake humps and bars in 18-24 fow.  Got a couple to go on jigging raps but then they shut off.  Spent the rest of the day trying to pin down a panfish pattern.  Found good numbers of sunfish in shallow cabbage beds(6-9 fow).  None were huge but good numbers of 8-8 1/2" gills.  A few crappies are mixed in with them and some are suspending off the break.  There are also good numbers of sunfish in or just outside the reeds.   Most of the sunfish ran smaller though although there were some keepers there too.  Pike and bass I did not target but saw others do so successfully.   Plenty of bass in the reeds and spinnerbaits seemed to be what most were using.   Troll over the weeds and you will be rewarded with pike.
    • I got primary on the Crow-Hassen with a rank of #21. New experience for me as well, with MBRB, been a member for a few years just could never get a hunt.   DanBo - That was one I had on my list as I have a buddy that lives just a few blocks up from there.
    • try them before you knock them....
    • we've only  used the adapter so far at the campsites, as I've only seen the standard plug in's at the boxes; and only running some lights and AC at the most at one time, no fridge to run
    • That is crazy nice Hoey.  😎   But for $3,400 I'll just keep my dirt flakes on the floor and may be pick up another used sled or wheeler! 😋
    • Yes, its a 110v motor. I would've preferred 12v also but not a big deal since all my 110v outlets can be fed from an inverter so they are powered whether the generator is running or not. I think what you mentioned with the single shaft between them will be the ticket. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with.
    • When I was a kid, we came across a small flock of pigeons along a railroad track while grouse hunting. Shot three and my mom put them in a crockpot with other ingredients and, although I prefer grouse, they weren’t bad. 
    • You should get the 30 amp power cord if you don't have one already. You can use the 30 amp power cord adapter(30 amp female to 15 amp male) for home use. Otherwise when at the campground plug the 30 amp power cord into the 30 amp receptacle.  Now your set for any situation.     Your 20 amp receptacle is protecting the wire from receptacle to breaker panel. Besides running the AC, your running a refrigerator, 110v receptacles, and convertor.  A 16 gauge extension cord is no good.
