Tackle storage when chasing the Macs

Postby pazz » Mon Feb 20, 2017 6:52 pm

Question for the offshore crew, how do you manage / store your different rigs in the yak?
I have 2 tackle boxes that I use for large live rigs, large dead rigs, small live rigs & small dead rigs. Which rig I go with is dependent on what live bait is available on the day.
It sort of works but I generally end up with a tangle of hooks, wires, trebles, ect....in the boxs.
Trying to find a system that avoids crimping any wire.
How do you store yours?
I was thinking of a roll up version that may get less tangled - does any one know of anything commercially available.
Any good ideas out there (other than take less rigs)

Cheers

I think most place one rig in a zip lock sandwich bag, and all the bags in a small watertight tupperware box.
Nothing too fancy....ive used a lure case.... zip lock bags in a zippered case. Zipper seized after a month....

I use soft tackle bags. I put my rigs individualy in each zip bag. Waterproof and no tangles.

As above all my rigs go in zip locked sandwich bags or bigger if needed and labelled with permanent marker, easy to flick through them and pull out the one you need.

Thanks guys.
Sounds like the ziplock bags are the go. Off to Woolies instead of motackle.

I cut a number of pool noodles to size, wrap my rigs and pin with a nail, place in a small plastic container. The rigs remain tangle free and roll out straight ready to use.
Win Win, catch a fish, happy days, the chance of catching a bloody big fish, even happier days
