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?

      I have also worried about the quality of the bite...and the absence of perch. At least on the northwest side, anyways, where we almost never mark small perch anymore.  In years past, the best indicator of a soon-to-be big red mark on the Vex was that the small perch vacated the area.  I did see TONS of perch down on the south side this year, but I don't know how the numbers there compared to years past, either.   But yeah, the bite has been excellent for, what, three years now?  We're also catching a decent mix of fish (though of course most are from the 2013 year class).  The only good thing to mention, at least in my experience, is that the fish do look very healthy and fat, very unlike the fish during the "boom years" in the mid-2000's when everything you'd catch would be a skinny 26 incher.

      Bite has been non existent for us this weekend for pike...we fished out of springsteel yesterday one flag. We are out of warroad and no flags yet... We tried as shallow as 4ft, out in 11ft now.
