How to store your decoys?

Recommended Posts

merkman

I have a tuperware box that I put all my decoys in but that just isn't working anymore. It gets cold and cracks and the decoys get pretty beat up clanging around inside there.

What do you guys use?

I want some thing that is big enough but not so big that it is a pain to move around.

I have just over a dozen decoys that I use along with a small tupperware with assorted snap swivels etc.

Let me know. If you can post pics that would be even better.

Yea merk I'm trying to figure out somthing too. I tried a ice rod bag and its alright but the decoys still get beat up pretty good. I'm thinking about shellin out the money for a musky bait box or makikng a divder system for a 5 gal bucket.

I know what you mean glenn sometimes you just have to have a certain one and then I end up with another one.

i place all mine in a tool box at the end of the year. As you all know, i always use the same two decoys. So i have 3 that i keep in my house, and have the rest in a old tool box to keep them in good shape.

I put mine in a small toolbox that has a tray on top that way you can divide them up, plus i put a small piece of carpet on the bottom oof the box to absorb the blows and keeps them from sliding around on the bottom of the box plus it soaks up the moisture. Plus the box has one of those small plastic boxes on top that slides in a grove that you can put small stuff in like leaders,swivels, extra line sinkers etc.

plus it soaks up the moisture.

That is a good idea.

I lost my cell phone to a bear creek decoy.

I put the cell phone in the decoy box thinking it would be safe since I didn't have zippered pockets that day.

At some point I was tired of the bear creek and put it in the decoy box. I guess I didn't drain all the water out of it since the water from it ended up in my cell phone. cry

Good thing it was a cheep cell phone. frown

      Definately made by JB lures but I have not seen them in a long time.  Check on their website and if they have a contact link send them a picture and see if they can help you out.

      Thinking about heading to vermilion tomorrow morning. Does anyone have  any new reports

      I’m surprised no one has said Lake Minnetonka yet. Ron Schara’s annual crappie contest always yields some enormous crappies in early May. Last year the winner was a 16.5 incher.

      Anyone else tired of the cold yet because I sure am!!!  Friday night got down to the cabin l went out and got holes drilled and heater running. Fished an hour between 9 and 10 we landed 3 or 4 crappies, they were either 8 inches or 13 inches. Fished Saturday morning didn't catch a thing. Moved house and started fishing for evening bite and landed about a dozen crappies and we found them either small or huge no middle ground. Sunday morning no fish. Sunday evening landed 8 and they were 10 inches or over 13 again. During then later hours ended up a 21 inch eye on a rattle reel.    Crappies wanted glow jigs in 4 mm or 3 mm tipped with soft plastics with wax worms. Few did end up taking large crappie minnows. Had mixed bag of minnows and shiners, rainbows and fat heads never got bit. Weird.      Hearing good reports of panfish being very active especially if you stay mobile. Guys fishing shallow are finding fish in the weeds.  Also hearing the elusive winter bass are starting to put the feed bags on. They are cruising the edges of weeds. Haven't heard any reports of walleye even with the full moon we just had.      Attached are two different fish from the weekend put back into the lakes.
