    Not cheap but I prefer these over the usual drain spout and crate. They are plano big game boxes

     

    I can fit 80-100 plugs in each box.

    I have something similar, Flambeau Maximizer.  Works well

  4. A million years ago, when I was young, OK it was only 30ish years ago, I used to buy pre-tied teasers from Smith Point Bait and Tackle.  I'm not sure why I remember this but the rig was a swivel on top and clip on the bottom (duo-lock if I remember correctly).  The teaser was a red gill that was tied on the tag end of the knot from the swivel.  I don't remember the knot, I wish I still had one around.  If anyone knows Craig maybe he might remember.


  5. Always use a leader with braid.  As strong as braid is, it pops pretty easy once it gets chafed.  30-36" is a good length.  In rocky areas I use 60# Jinkai, it makes handling fish much safer on your hands as well. 

    I do not use a swivel, many do.  I prefer to tie leader to braid with a slim beauty knot.  Other good knots are the FG, Alberto or Albright.  If you want to use a clip I tie a Uni knot, or a palomar.  If you want to tie your leader to the lure I prefer a loop knot like the Rapala knot.

    If you like these, you should go google Frank Frazetta.  He's the artist.  Passed away a few years back.  Did spectacular sci-fi - sword & sorcery fantasy artwork.  He did all of the Conan paperback covers also.

     

     

    I read a bunch of Edgar Rice Burroughs books when I was a kid.  Always thought the covers were great.  If I remember correctly I took a Frank Frazetta book out as well.  It had a bunch of his work, so much detail.
