Under Seat Lure Holders

Recommended Posts

In my winter boredom I've been trying to come up with an under seat lure holder, to avoid the lure mess on the floor (after a day's fishing when a fish finally hits) at the most inopportunitive time. Similar products are marketed, but seem "pricy" for what they are....essentially a half dozen or so pieces of 12 to 14 inch plastic tubes glued together.

I've tried craft stores, hardware stores, office supply, shipping companies, even fabric stores (seeing what the rolls of fabric come in on), all to no avail.

Does anyone know of a source for clear 2 to 3 inch diameter plastic tubing? Closest I've come is PVC in 3 inch, but enough to cut to make a seat post circle is almost a push, and it's pretty thick still and not see thru. I have received lures from companies that package lures in similar tubing, so I assume it exists......

Suggestions? If someone knows a trick with a coffee can I'm all fot it!

Thanks, Chris

One thing that would work for smaller diameter lures or bucktails is tubes that fluorescent lights come in. Most hardware stores will have them. But any bigger lure won't work, I think they are only a little over an inch in diameter.

I did some looking on the web a year or two back to try and do the same thing. What I found then was alot of places had tubing. What they wanted at the time was for you to buy in bulk. I think the least amount I could buy was 40' or so. Well, I didn't need that much.

If you find a place that will sell it in smaller numbers, please post it on here, I'm sure others besides me would like to know.

Funny that you say that about the lights.....it was putting away X-mas ornaments that made me think of it! I'll keep looking and let y'all know.

This may or may not be the kind of thing that you're looking for, but I've used a plastic plant pot that works great to hold my lures. I found a decent sized on that would accomidate my 8"+ lures (I keep the bigger stuff stored away, but you could get a bigger pot to do this with larger lures). I notched out the bottom to fit my release tab at the bottom of the pedistal. I put velco on the bottom of the pot and on the top of the base for the seat. This keeps the whole thing from tipping over when in transit. Finally, I notched out a couple dozen spots to hang the back hooks of the lures on. This keeps them from working their way around the container and getting all balled up on one spot. It might sound corny, but it works great. If anyone is interested I can take a few pics and post them. If it's too goofy sounding I'll just keep it to myself! wink.gif

    • I think Parise has been great this year, like his old self,  one of the few bright spots during a slow start. Liking Greenway more and more, he isn't producing yet but he looked good last night, really starting to use his size out there. Need to see more out of Coyle and Nino. 
    • I still run my fl8 that I bought in 1996. I don’t need zoom and I have watched many friends with the new fancy locators not see fish under the ice. Not me I catch em. No stinking updates for my fl 8 and my fl 8 has fallen down the stairs more times then me. It still runs I had new brushes put in after I fell on it and smashed the casing. O yeah i fished all day with the smashed casing let’s see the new units do that. It’s fixedand runs perfect. Never notice the noise you guys are talking about as I am to busy catching fish!
    • Does that come with ear plugs to drown out all the noise?
    • Since there isn't a lot of covering ground I just don't need the last 30 seconds on a graph or a GPS map to know I've been sitting in the same spot for the last hour.  My phone is always on me when I need to move and I run navionics.  Half the year I'm in my truck when I'm on the move anyway.  If I'm on a dogsled in the bwca I have a handheld.   I'll stick to the flasher.   I upgraded to a bigger screen with the bird, but I just dont need a ton of features that really only make sense on a moving boat.   Just my two cents.
    • Graphs are nice for fishing in a boat for sure.  They show you the nice big history picture of what has already gone by and gives you a good view of what the changing bottom depths look like as you float around.  Really though, when your fishing in a little hole over the same bottom for an hour or all day. What’s the point?  The important part of a graph for ice fishing is that ¼” or so of edge on the far right and what is happening on it real time.  Which then, is just like a Flasher only giving you real time info and why I went back to one from my graph.   Worley Worley!  😉  
    • Good luck on your hunt, let us know how you do!
    • I have another weekend in me to fish and fight the winds and weather and then the boat will be done for the year.  Guess it is that time of the season but would really love to get another couple outings in but such is life! 
    • who uses flashers now days haha; I'm a helix convert now too, i was hesitant at first as the Lowrance had a LCD screen a few years ago for ice fishing but the lag was unusable, but hbird figured it out. Mapping, flasher screen if wanted, and sonar all in one, its like a smartphone; everything in one.   also, I have not had any interference issues with others using the helix, especially with all of hte chirp setttings
