Carrying equipment when setting or checking traps.

What do you guys use to carry your equipment?

Re: Carrying equipment when setting or checking traps.

There's a video going around where a guy used an Alice pack and trash can. Or you can rig up a 5 gallon bucket or just use a traditional pack basket. Johnson's has pack baskets or the 5 gallon bucket organizers

Re: Carrying equipment when setting or checking traps.

I have a tool bag with my equipment in it and one of those shotshell bags you wear on your hip while shooting trap for my baits and lures. Works SLICK! 3 pockets. I keep urine bottles and bait jars in the big one, lures in the middle one and in the front I keep a plastic fork for dealing out bait, a pen and a ziploc bag with my notebook.

I have a bucket for remakes with all different equipment from my new set bag. Regardless of what I'm doing, I just snap that lure / bait bag around my waist and go.

That's exactly what I use lugnut but mine is tan.

I keep anti-freeze in the two big bottle holders.
