But whatever you use, do yourself a favor and line bottom of the inside of the crate with something solid before putting the tubes in & filling them with plugs (I used rectangular sheets of the Styrofoam insulating material - super light, cheap & easy to cut).  There's nothing worse than when a plug falls through the tube and snags whatever you've set it on or on the crate itself & you end up taking everything out just to get that treble unstuck.

Good idea. I like the styrofoam idea. Will water drain through it or should I come up with an idea to help drainage? I can always punch some holes in the foam.

Still awaiting the first casts of the season. Came up wth a storage solution for the plugs... half way done. One more crate should do the trick (I hope)

these can be purchased on the cheap, an open crate full of plugs is asking for a busted window in a night time parking lot

I keep them inside my vehicle, but the crate itself is full of holes ;)

I just had this vision of you strapping that crateful of plugs to your back and wading out to a rock LOL

 

As far as the other poster and the fear of getting your vehicle broken into, I always carry a beach towel and throw it over them - however, unless I'm traveling some kind of distance to fish, like Montauk - then I'm not taking the crate, I'm just filling my bag and when I can't decide what to bring (or leave behind), I throw the extras in plastic container and call it a night.

 

I find that the problem with a lot of those boxes is that they're not tall enough for my pencils and/or needles when the heads are sticking up a couple of inches.

Whats the name of that storage box? @ferret

Maximizer can be found at walmart $84, but i thought I've seen similar for much cheaper
