Tackle Storage For The Winter

Recommended Posts

Greetings, Due to the recent birth of my new daughter ( :D ) I have lost the spare bedroom as my tackle storage locker.

Is it ok to leave tackle in the shed all winter? i suppose all the hardbaits are fine but what about softplastics? Im in the Northeast and its about to get REAL cold REAL soon and i just dont know how that will affect my baits.

I would find a place indoors to store it, somewhere where its dry, dark, and no rodents.

I've always stored my stuff in an unheated shed. No problems so far.

That sounds dark and rodent free. Is it dry? By that I mean not humid or damp. If so, it's fine.

I live in Missouri and I've not had any problems storing soft plastics in my unheated outbuilding. I do keep everything sealed in plastic show boxed or storage totes, something to keep the mice out. This summer I used some pork baits that I had forgotten about and had been through several (6 or 7) freezing/thawing cycles, and they worked fine. They were a little softer than new pork baits, but they worked ok. I wouldn't worry about it.

Congrats on the birth of your new baby Dman!

I have free indoor storage for all of your stuff at my place! I'm in Southern California and will keep all of your gear in tip top shape as I will use them all winter. :)
