Jig storage for the boat

Jig storage for the boat
I've never been keen picking jig out of a bag or having 5 bags of different weights and hook size in the box. Here's an alternative.
1. packing foam is stiff and allows slits to be cut for hooks.
2. Amazon sells storage boxes that lock

Cut the foam to fit in the inside of the box. Cut slits in a line and label the lid of the box with each size jig weight and hook size.

When I lose jigs, I just replace them in the box. Larger jigs have their own box. As you've noticed, unpainted ball heads are the only jigs I need for soft plastics - even 5" Kut Tail Worms. 

For wall storage in the basement or even in a container (plastic shoe box), I use the same foam and put it with certain size jigs and hooks in a storage bag knowing they are easily accessed and protected from rust. I hang these from a pegboard installed on a wall in the basement.
