Whatever you use-I put those little packets you get in shipping packages that cut down on the moisture level and keep your hooks from rusting.

Not as much of a problem in CO but it sure is in TX.

Im right there with you. This is 100x better than the mess of **** I had before. I ordered mine from http://www.customjigs.com/icefishing/accessories/rosecreek_boxes.html
only because I was getting some other things from them. Im going to order more spoon boxes now that I've tried them. I dont have nearly as many jigs as I do hard lures, and I love the way these hold them

What is the problem with a normal tackle tray and putting the jigs in those, seems like they would hold much more and are much cheaper

Wasnt being negative just letting whoever know what happens over time and also if you dont want a mess before you fill it up, pry the sides up carefully and re-glue thoroughly...because over the course of a season the weight of the jigs will pull one or both sides loose...I bought three of them at the beginning of last winter to organize my little stuff for ice...I am 50-50 on whether I would buy them again because they are pricey...but I am a find it organization freak and it does piss me off that they come loose...great idea but it needs refinement or maybe there is a better mousetrap out there that I havent found yet...

Cheap fly box or small plano works much better.


Your "solution" sucks.

Ok maybe it was just a problem with the 1st batch or something that happens with time with the glue...

I was being serious, there is a direction the hook goes in. But sounds like you know that though, a lot of people miss that point. Just trying to be helpful from what I had read of others having issues with jigs falling out. And don't go by my picture, mine are in ass backwards as well.
