How do you store your demersal jigs?

I'm looking for ideas on how to store demersal jigs. I've looked at the Shout jig bags and while they look the goods my main issue with them is IMO they are very pricy given the small number of jigs each one actually holds. There must be better storage bags, boxes, etc available out there. So what do you all use?

one of the ever popular Team Daiwa Jig bags. They're a good compromise for storing both long and short jigs.

 I use a Crossfactor jig roll

 I use a Crossfactor jig roll for my most popular demersal jigs, then a spares box for the ones i rarely use. Use a shout assist case to hold assist hooks, means they dont get caught up in the mesh of the bags.

Shout bag all the way for me.

Shout bag all the way for me. If you get an additional insert for them they hold quite a lot, there's gotta be at least 30 jigs in mine.

Rest sit in a cardboard box at home!


When asked by a non-fisherman 'how many fishing rods do you really need?' the correct answer is either:

n+1 (where n is the number of fishing rods you currently own); or

n-1 (where n is the number of fishing rods which would cause your significant other to dump you.

Hi Mate,Agreed with dkonig82.

Hi Mate,

Agreed with dkonig82. But I don't carry as many as him when I go jigging cos I know I will only use a handful.

So get a proper jig bag - be it Daiwa, Shimano or Shout. Pre-select the jigs you want to use before your trip, taking into account the depths, wind speed. Keep the rest in a box at home. So long they are not being moved about, they would not rub off each other's paintwork. U can store them in cardboxes long enough to accommodate the jigs. Example - shoe box.

I use one of those long pencil cases with neoroprene (neoroprene) to store the jigs when I am not using also.

Not bringing ALL the jigs you have on the trip also prevent you losing everything in one go - not all eggs in one basket. I lost my jig bag in the beginning of the year so I only lost a few jigs + the bag.

Make sure you rinse your jigs and dry them before storage.
