Default Umbrella rig storage

How do you guys store your umbrella rigs on the boat? I use the larger 20" 4 arm for blues and striper. They can be a PITA with all the tangles.

Leave them on the rods. Hook bait(s) on reel and crank tight.

Spares get stowed in a plastic storage tub.

I was using a big plastic tote, then I got a bunch of these Penn Tackle Rolls at Gander Mtn when they went out of business. Can store 6 umbrella rigs and rolls up nice and small. Plus it is mesh and lets things dry out nicely. Wet stuff got mildewed in the totes.

The 4” drain pipe cut to length of rigs. Then you can stuff 5 lengths (I believe) into a 5 gal pail. Drill 1/2” holes in the bottom for water to drain. I just leave on the deck and when your done for the day a quick rinse will get all of them.

in addition you can hang other lures in between the pipe and rinse everything you’ve tried for the day.

The larger diameter downspout pipe works best. It is rectangular and with a set of snips and a heat gun you can fold one end closed like a box top. Naturally drains. Very cheap.

Hard to tell from the picture, but it appears the rigs are slid in sideways? I got confused with the statement "I just slide them in, connection end first". I assumed the "connection end" was the end that connects to the line, not the lure.

9'ers uses thin plastic. When it wears out or cracks, I replace w/the white sch 20 drain tube.
