    Hey Guys...
    Ok, I seem to always have issues with rusty hooks. I seem to have found good solutions for preventing rust on my crankbaits, topwaters, etc, but the one place I seem to always have things get rusted is in my worm hook box. I have tried 3 different boxes now for storing hooks, and it seems like no matter what I do, eventually, they all end up getting rust! Has anyone found a good storage solution for their hooks where they are not having any issues with rust?

    I have used one of those silicone packs that come in the TV or VCR or any electronics box that you buy at the store. I put one of those things in with my hooks, and the rust went away
    good luck dude

    That's smart, Matt. I do the same thing. I get my packs from Bacon Bits packages. They're small, so I use about 3 in my hooks/weights box. Seem to work pretty well. Because, I don't get to fish much these days, yet my hooks are always good to go. And, even though I didn't ask the question, thanks for the reply!
