    Default Organizing halibut tackle

    Looking for some ideas on organizing my halibut tackle.Wondering if anyone has certain tackle boxes they recommend or maybe some kind of homeade setup? I can never find the right tackle box for the job and was kind of thinking of maybe I could build or make something,possibly from a 5 gal bucket.

    My weights I keep in a military ammo can

    Halibut rig I have pre made. I got a wood dial and hung that to the cabin of my boat. I just hang the halibut lures on it.

    Jig, and other lures I have a soft shoulder carrying gear bag..

    For my jig heads I have a 5 gallon bucket that I keep in my bait well. Middle of the bucket I have a gallon of herring oil.

    Default Halibut Rig Storage

    All weights are stored in an ammo can with felt padding in the bottom, the hooks are 16/0 and pretied with cord and swivels attached. These are stored in a small box by themselves and the large jig heads are hooked over a five gallon bucket edge. When there done they get stored in a small tackle box along with herring oil and extra swivels. use 1/2 size ziplocs to store the small items in the tackle boxes when possible.

    The 5 gallon bucket works great. Put sinkers in the bottom. The take a 3gallon bucket to place over sinkers with other junk like hooks and jigs. You can even get a tool bag that fits on the outter rim for knives and other items. Place a lid on it and you have a seat. Coast Guard stops you and asked for your manual de-watering device and you are covered.
