The Sabiki Sleeve

This idea hit me after been hooked by a Rapala lure/hook (not fun) and hearing about my buddy's having a Sabiki hook up his butt the week prior. So here it is!

No more Sabiki hooks flying around with the Sabiki Sleeve. "Installation" took 10 seconds. That is cutting the pool noodle with a knife. When you're done with your Sabiki, just wrap it around the pool noodle making sure each hook is secured into the foam, and store it in this container. It also fits a sinker weight and small iron jig if anyone's using one at the Sabiki's end (I do, as it goes down faster and the iron jig flashes catching bait's attention). Close the lid and you're ready to go. The rubber ends are flexible, so if you wish, you can add a small ball bungee cord on the bottom's end and secure your Sabiki Sleeve anywhere you like while launching/landing.

Total cost: $6.

$5 for the plastic holder (found at any local Home Depot stores; NOT found on their website for some odd reasons). Called "Viewtainer Slit Top Storage Container 2.75"X5".

And $1 for the pool noodle (Walmart). Look outside in the garden section.

I like it Filippo. I've tried wrapping my sabiki around several different things, but nothing as neat at that. Thanks!

BTW, I use a small blue & white iron as the weight at the end of my sabiki, and I've caught several fish on the iron, so it does more than attract attention. I caught a jack smelt, corvina, bonito and several mackerals.

The hole in the noodle is perfect for that.

I'll take two!

Thanks guys!

Mr. NiceGuy - I believe you. Once a mac ate my sinker weight and it passed through his gills. It was pretty funny. I guess we really don't need hooks. Anything shining works.

Bob - I buy the Mustad Sabiki Bait Rig, SBM-30, from Walmart. Used the same rig about 5 times and still going strong.

Where did you get your stadium seat? mind sharing the link to buy and any tip on installing it? Picking up my new PA14 here shortly and would love to take my daughter out in the bay with me.

Thanks!

Costco has offered nice quality stadium seats for the past couple of years for around $14. What you do with it depends on your own creativity and mechanical skills.

Nice idea!

A little piece of hypalon will also work and takes up less space.

Anyone picking up tar on the boats?
I use Goof off spray and it literally melts off.
Re: sabiki thread ; I just found the noodles very helpful.

Hey Dgax65. I'm new to this forum. Had to say how nice your wiring is. Clean and waterproof. Looks like you are using heat shrinked butt connectors too. Nicely done.

At the rate I catch big fish I should be able to give two bags to my kids in my will.
Funny, I did the same thing and it works great and is as light as a game bag gets.

Another year on doing well

Well, despite being doomed to corrosive failure, the box is still going strong. Replaced a fuse once after letting her sit a while but the o-ringed covers on switches, goop on case rubber switch covers faul, and liberAL use of dialectric grease on the buss inside has kept her looking new. Run lights fishfinder, bait tank and marine radio off it all day with no issues.

Took it out, and while it didn't get a full dunking, it got pretty wet. Appears to be no moisture whatsoever inside the box. Gotta give it a few more days to check for any moisture or corrosion, but appearts to be holding up pretty well. After use, have decided to mount the ff to the top of the box (assuming it passes the longer term corrosion test).

Goop is great!!!!!

Update: 16 days later and nary a bit of moisture or corrosion. I'll keep inspection, grease and regoop as needed as a critical pre op check and it should be fine. Now to build out the light rig.

Cold Steel Boat Bat - Made for Kayak Fishing

I started out using the Cold Steel Brooklyn Shorty after testing it with the guys at Cold Steel, and it worked great, however I gave the guys at Cold Steel some feedback and they took my feedback and came out with the Boat Bat. High Visibility Orange and a hole for a leash, not that its necessary since it floats, but so does my radio and I still managed to lose that at Montana De Oro.
