How to store pre-tied lures on a leader?

I know about a way to store pre-tied leaders with individual hooks, like this:

And it's a neat way to do it.

But is there a trick/technique for storing multi-hook lures on a leader?

I'm talking something like this:

You can't really wrap it around a pool noodle, like an individual hook. And when I try to use regular tackle boxes with compartments for storage, the leader just springs back all over the place before I can close the box.

There has to be a way, but I just can't think of anything.

Use the noodle and open the slit, hook lure inside the noodle maybe 🤔 🤷 ??

As to your pool noodle method, Years ago when I did mine, I got some pipe insulation that was already slit and did like you showed, but I went one step further and got some white PVC pipe and cut it to a length to fit the foam and I cemented a permanent cap on one end and a threaded cap and collar on the other end. Make sure it is of the design that has the same ID as the tube so that your foam hook keeper can easily slide out. You can write on the tube what is inside then cover writing with clear nail polish. Now it can literally be thrown around in the boat on shore or where ever and the leaders are protected from all elements especially the Sun. Your pool noodle may have a better grip on then put into the slit, forget how tight the pipe insulation is, just another method.

I used to strain my brain on this issue as well... but frankly I have come to the conclusion that if I can tie on a lure with a good simple loop knot it's alot of brain burning for knot (sorry, couldn't resist) Google salt strong or simple loop knot and see how I tie 95% of my lures in less than 30 seconds

Welcome aboard Howard. Missed your post yesterday. What kind of fishing do you do? I fish the Keys and West Palm Beach about once a year. Gordon

Leave the leader with a snap on the end on your line. Don't have a leader on each lure. Or if you don't wants to use a snap just tie a quick loop knot to add your lure.

The best solution that I have found for organizing lures and hooks with (and without) leaders is using pieces of foam floor padding that are cut to fit my tray compartments.

Below is a description of what's in each compartment (left to right) of the tray that is pictured below.

You'll notice that all of the treble hooks have one prong removed. I do this primarily to increase the efficiency of the hook set and strength but a major side benefit is for storage space. (See separate topic titled: "PapaD, why are all of your treble hooks broken? The beauty of duplex hooks")

Since the contents are random items I grabbed just for this photo not all of them have leaders. If I was going out for the day in my paddle (not pedal) kayak, most if not all of the lures would have leaders pre-attached.

#1. (left) Swimbait and cocktail (or anything with a single hook in the middle). Note that the foam has a V-notch in the middle for setting the hooks.

#2. Live bait hooks with leaders marked with hook size, leader strength, and leader length. Note that the leaders are wound into short slits on each end marked with a felt pen to make them easy to see in low light without changing glasses.

#3. Loose lures (jerk-bait and rattletrap) without leaders get stuck into small pieces of the foam to keep them from tangling.

#4. Long broken-back lure with leader and hook set on the side.

#5. Two 1 oz KastMasters and two Krocodiles with elastic hair tie holding them to the foam.

#6-top. Roughly a dozen rooster tails and super dupers hung on the narrow strip of foam to keep them from getting tangled.

#6-bottom. Trout lures with pieces of synthetic cork on their hooks again to keep them from getting tangled.

On the lid you will see a repurposed prescription bottle did I use to keep loose hooks, snaps and swivels. They are easy to open and yet still very secure.

Hope this helps.

GO OUT AND GET SOME!!!

One more picture of how I keep my setup trolling rigs.

This one has a 32" leader (most of it is under the dodger) to the lure and 60" of 50# mono to the weight.

Hope this helps.

Is the lead on a three way? Usually, we need 8-12 oz balls here for salmon. 8 on back of boat and larger on bow if fishing 4 or more rods.
