    In Mexico where I fish, no need for a basket-the fish will take every bit of line you let them have :)

    Container should be weighted enough to prevent it from blowing overboard either in wind or while running the boat. Best if it will hold a little water to keep running line slick.

    The very expensive LMD (line management device) is made of PVC and is heavy. The next one down was made of foam and could come with two bottoms that allowed the angler to fill the bucket with 15 pound of water then put the 2nd bottom above the water line.

    All suggestions work great.............. matters on what you like to spend money on................

    Re: Line Bucket or Basket

    I have success with a using a laundry basket on the boat for stripping line into. It helps a ton. Haven’t found a great solution for kayaking, but i also have a bunch of extra gizmos hanging off the yak.

    I see guys with a box on their belts in surf, and that seems to work ok, but it looks shallow to me.
