Another thing that works really well is to get some plastic down spouts cut them to the length of a 5gal bucket. I think you can get 9 or 12 in a bucket then you use the whole bucket and the baits don't tangle as bad.
I was worried about the tangling thing too. However, I have tested that pretty well just be carrying it, and shaking back and forth, and it is not an issue. Becuase the hooks all hang downward, they really doen't grab each other. I can't wait to get some real use out of it. I actually think this will allow me to catch more fish. Reason being I will have my full assortment of pike lures at my finder tips. I want have to hund through trays in my soft box or dig through the twisted mess of lures in the bottom of my plano hard box. Having all my favorite choices will definatly encourage me to use the more, and keep me fishing instead of digging. As far as the kinds go, I can't really help you with that. However, it would not take much time to put all back in plce as the lures are big. I though about doing the Vinyl pipe thing, but this will leave a much smaller footprint in my boat.
I won't bother posting a photo, but I added one more thing. I clipped a wire hanger to add a hanger going cross-ways across the inner part of the bucket. This allows me to hang some large spinners in the middle of the bucket. I planned to lay them on the bottom, but this will be better.
