    Typically put the 4oo+ feet of rope for pots inside the pots for storage but don’t want to fight with that any longer. In the way and tangled.
    Would like to find a good tough plastic basket or barrel that could handle that amount of rope. Interested to hear how others manage their pot rope. Thanks,

    I used a big blue garbage can with the wheels on one side of the bottom. I just stick it in the back corner of the boat while running. I can cram 3 600 foot runs in it . Then I pack a smaller tote with another 600 feet in it for my last 2 traps.

    I have used these muck buckets for years and for a variety of things. Sometimes, I see them at Canadian Tire, Costco or Princess Auto.

    I use the roughneck bins but the rectangle shape doesn’t help it coil well inside

    Garbage can with lots of 3" holes drilled out on the side to keep the sets of rope dry.

    Good idears, thanks.
    Was able to find a 10 gap Brute plastic garbage can. Holds 450ft. of rope and the buoy. Have to put it to work to see how the set up functions.

    just so you'r not called a landlubber or a cowboy-buy rope in a store-take it on a boat and it's called a line-bowline, trapline...
