Default High Speed Weight Storage

Anyone have any clever ideas for storing high speed trolling weights? I have a 28' cc and most/all of my storage is in deck. I could get a soft sided cooler or something similar to keep them relatively contained, but wasn't sure if anyone had come up with a clever solution.

Was just curious if anyone had seen or done anything unique with them.

Look for a post by Texas Blue. He made a drop weight box for his console floor. I'm in the process of doing the same thing. Making a 40" X 20 X 4" high box and sticking a helm pad on top.

We use a vented plastic produce crate.. when we get home we hose down the lures and weights inside the same crate and let them dry before storing again.

Someone has too much time on their hands, a tool bag works just fine

Harbor Freight tool bag for less than $10.

Put some foam in the bottom and you're cookin' with gas.

I use a plastic tool tray with a slit cut out of the bottom so that the cable can lay flat. There is a solid plastic handle in the middle. I also added some feet from short sections of hose.

Anyone know where I can get a mold for these high speed weights? I have looked everywhere and have about 800lbs of lead to melt. Thanks

Not sure, but most interesting to me, where did you get 800 pounds of lead?

Any good machine shop can do it for $300 to $600. Mine makes 24 and 32oz and cost $500 15 years ago. Can buy quite a few weights for that price.

I just sold it all. I will just buy leads. More time fishing less time working.

X2 on Harbor Freight tool bags
I also use them to carry Plano trays to the boat. (The 12 inch for small trays and the 15 inch for the large trays.)
