Default Weather permitting, hunting a lake today

Hopefully the weather allows it...I'd hate to be out in a thunderstorm...


I need to figure out where to store my numerous finds today I only have my current "junk" pouch (when dirt fishing I put "keepers" in my pocket) that's really a tool belt.

Any expedient suggestions? I'd hate to use the pockets of my suit and end up losing them.

I use a fat pill bottle and put it in my pants pocket. The fat ones want come out even when I'm water hunting in the high surf.

I use a simple drawstring back pack. I just throw everything I find in it and sort trash vs treasure after the hunt where it's dry. Keeps the finds secure and makes for some awesome tan lines!

At the beach and in the water I use a mesh bag with a draw string. Carry it on my belt. Have never had a problem with items not staying in the bag.

That was the case here...I could have hunted the small beach area, but not worth it...it's about the size of a large tot lot...


thanks all for the ideas though.
