    im getting tired of too much gear littering the deck of my boat
    almost lost a couple nice forceps and a knife due to loose gear getting in the way of nets or rope .
    well if i can pull this off here is a doctored up picture of my boat and
    what i want to accomplish with some spare stuff around my garage.

    i have a bucket organizer and lid and i want to drill appropriate sized holes in the middle and bottom of bucket and in the middle of lid so bucket is
    stable.
    this setup should hold all sorts of stuff like pliers ,scale ,lip grabber ,
    camera , stringer , long cigar bobbers ,
    etc in the out side pockets .
    in the inside of the bucket you can store spare rope ,hatchet ,
    papertowels ,etc.
    whatta ya think???

    I have an open fiber glass boat with little storage and I thin that the bucket idea is grate. If I keep the boat I will defiantly put this idea to use

    Drc, i had the same problem and what remedied it was hanging a soft tackle bag off the seat by the strap on the sitting part of the seat. If i turn it moves around behind the seat keeping it out of the way and in hand reach about all the time. Those soft sided tackle bags are the way to go!

    Looks like it should work. Buckets are the prolem solver for catfisherman.
    I think every boat needs a bucket and ducktape on board at all times. I have cut, drilled, heated and bent to modify buckets for all kinds of uses. I even tried to use one as a backpack by adding straps. keep up the good ideas.

    Leonard, you forgot the bailing wire. Every, self respecting person in the U.S. should carry some bailing wire. Fixes cars, tractors, combines, plows, harrows, springboards, fastens items together, secure rods to boat. Nope, you just can't beat bailing wire. LOL
