I hang it on a nail and put a piece of card board underneath in case the grease drips.

Because I have to have mine with everyday I wrap it up in an old bath towel and put it in the tool box.

On a nail upside down to keep air bubbles away from the pumping mechanism.

Ever since I moved last fall I've had it laying in a crate on the garage floor. I'm getting real tired of getting grease on my pants every time I brush the business end!

You guys should check this out. Do a search eng. search on "grease gun caddy". A couple places make these things and they work great for in boat/skid steer trailer/ work shop. They do not cost much and mount any were. They also have a drip tray to catch dripping grease. I saw one at local Skid steer dealer and feel in love with it. Northern tool has them for cheap. I mounted one on my car hoist a couple weeks ago. It replaced the hook/nail. Good luck!

Let me know what you think of it?

      You were in the right area, maybe just the wrong time.  I went out late this afternoon to see if the house my Dad has been using came through the "flood" OK and decided to drop a line when I was there. When I first dropped the hook down the hole a walleye screamed up off the bottom and slammed it 5 feet off the bottom. So out of curiosity I just sat there and jigged 4 to 5 feet off the bottom and they kept coming up and slamming it. They never touched the dead stick that was set 1 foot off the bottom.  All I can think of is that with the snow cover gone they could really see something up against the sunlight. I hadn't seen the walleyes that aggressive all winter.  maybe it was because I was fishing in a hole about 20 inches wide due to the water running down it.   No I don't think so cuz I have a big roll of duct tape and a bunch of white sheets. I'll wrap me, the Jeep and the dog in white sheets. We'll be just like ghosts.  OOPS, just remembered that the snow is all gone. I really think that after all the years we each could stick a pin in a lake  map guessing where the other one would be and we would each be within 1/4 mile. From his description fishing tech was right on the eastern edge of your favorite area.

      What needs to be in the boat, to be legal to fish Superior. I've been trying to find it in the book with no luck.
