Over the last couple years my swim bait collection has become a problem in my boat.
All of these baits are huge and take up a lot of room, sometimes only getting a few in one box; this can be a huge waist of space. Being compulsive and not wanting to mix lure types in any of my boxes I ended up with a lack of space in my lure locker.
I just recently went on a cleaning rampage and found a couple inexpensive boxes that really helped me control the mess.
There are a lot of expensive boxes and bags out there these days but I needed something that fit my existing system of Plano type boxes, Besides I use my swimbaits I am not looking to display them.
I have two types of boxes I use for all my different types of swimbaits. One is the Plano "2-3731" this box is about 3 inches deep and has no compartments it is all open. As you can guess you can fit a hell of a lot of shit in this one.
The other is a sturdy Box I found at Osh or "Orchard Supply Hardware". It is made by a company called "A Myers Industries" this is a 3 compartment box that will hold up to nine 8” Hudds no problem. These boxes are only around ten bucks.
I am sure over the next couple years we will be seeing a lot more boxes specifically designed for the storage of swimbaits, however I am quite happy with what I have going here. I would much rather spend my money on Baits than boxes to keep them in.
