Multiple Lure Storage in a Small Tackle Box

Post by Mzuri3 » Mon Aug 16, 2010 12:56 am

If you have ever fished from a sit-in kayak, or waded trout streams, you would realise how essential it is to have minimum tackle in a confined space. Over the years I have sort of resolved the problem by taking only one tackle box, stuffed to the bream with lures and aided by simple small and replaceable rubber bands. Each lure has an easily removable rubber band placed around the hooks then either pulled over the bib, or strapped over the body.

Some may find it annoying, but I swear by it, and you can buy a bag of rubber bands from your local news agents which will last for years. They do perish after time, but they are so simple to replace.

I'm glad that this works for you...but I don't like the hook points being exposed and getting tangled crazysmilie

Here's a topic about tacklebox organization I had started on my HOME fishing forum on the NAFC here in the states. You'll see pics here of stuff a very good friend of mine has with the hook bonnets on them (he got the idea from me with a box of spoons I have)...and although none of my pics shows the bonnets...I have since added bonnets to many of my lures.

For me...it seemed that I ALWAYS get the point of one hook into the top loop of another treble...and that can be maddening to get out sometimes -duh cww

The bonnets also limit the "movement" of lures in compartments...thereby helping to keep the paint job / finish on them pretty decent thumbsupsmilie

Thankyou for your advice River Man Dave, I have used hook bonnets in the past, and your totally correct in their usefulness, but sadly, being a kayak fisherman, I have to cram in as much as I can in small containers, as there is always a day when you don't have the right pattern colour or colour of lure, and I discovered that the bonnets do pose a restriction when cramming.

Your comments are definitely justified, as yes, there is always an occasional prick of a finger, and regrettably the lures are open to all sorts of damage, but for my needs, the rubber bands are extremely effective.

Thank you for pointing out the errors that may occur with my storage method, as I did actually fail to notify others of the consequences, especially the lure collectors.

Nice one. I carry far too many lures in the 'yak as well (don't ask how many), but instead of rubber bands use the twist ties that come with freezer bags. Got to keep an eye on them in case one starts to rust though...

That's a classic River Man Dave, I can just picture it.

lol

Actually, I recall seeing pictures of duck shooters in the USA wading the swamps with a tow line on their belt pulling a small floating capsule type unit for their gear, decoys and ducks. Pretty nifty idea too.

Mully won't need the extra space though, as he has a pretty good looking and decent size yak to stow things.
