Was wondering what tackle tray everybody is using to organize them. Plano edge was one that I was looking at, but open to suggestions. Thanks

I'm really happy with the Plano edge so far. Great for jigs and chatterbaits!

I keep them in their original pkg till used in a cheap Tupperware box. some soft plastic trailers if left on can deteriorate the rubber o-ring collar if stored together. another reason to hand tie em or just use ones built with wire.

Your storage system depends on the skirting material. Silicone will allow you to use open tray type containers. Your rubber bands will be the first thing to go; so get that problem worked out; so you can use the open trays. As already mentioned; hand tie the skirts and do away with the rubber bands for longer live of your jigs and remember to remove the rubber trailers when you store them away. Store the trailers in small amounts using 4 mil. bags in one end of the tray.

Now if you are going to use the more productive living rubber skirting the open trays are OUT. Each jig should be kept in a small 4mil. resealable bag and allow the jig to dry before putting it away. Baby Power is the key once the jig is dry and ready for storage into the bag; coating the skirt with a light sprinkle of the powder. Also use one of the Worm Binders to store your individually bagged jigs by color and size for each page in the binder. Keeping Living Rubber air tight is very important for a long life. These skirts must be hand tied eliminating the O-Ring. All trailers must be stored in their own 4 mil. bag and kept in a separate page away from the skirting material.


Each person you work with holds some promise to your future success.

I bought a deep 3700 box. I then take same weight and same color jigs and place in ziplocs. I place ziplocs in a row ie flipping jigs, football jigs, swim jis. Its easier for me to keep up with them that way.

This is what I do and is by far my favorite way to store them.
