Default Big Bait Box

I looked high and low for a storage system for big baits that wouldn't cost $140 to no avail so I built one. Here's what you need:

Iris Weather-Tight File Tote with Organizer Top- $19.99 at Office Max


Cut 4 slots on each side


Wooden Dowel cut to 4x13"
Rubber 'O' Rings
Duo Lock Snaps












The O rings were the most expensive part of the project. I probably could have got it done cheaper if I shopped around for the snaps and cheaper O rings.

Nice! Are you going to go buy swimbaits with your savings? Of course, it looks like you already need another box!

I need to rig something like that up for my jerkbaits. When you pile as many as you can fit into a box, it is quite a pain to get out the one you want even if you're careful about it...

I use a spinner bait box, with basically the same concept as above (hanging the baits). They still get tangled, especially if you end up dropping the box or flipping it upside down, but does help if your careful.
