    You can buy the corn cob holders (they're big enough) at the Dollar store...for a buck. Step-stool basket for $5. Bungie cord for $3. Unicorn and Barbie stickers, priceless.

    Jason,
    I made my own basket out of a rubbermaid dish pan and used it for years.
    Then I bought a now discontinued LL Bean basket. After using it, I'd never go back to the homemade basket. The cones work great.
    The Linekurv is a knockoff of the Bean basket. If I didn't own the Bean basket I'd own the Linekurv. If the Linekurv wasn't available, then I'd buy the Orvis basket.
    Slap a Hello Kitty sticker on it and start fishing.
    I saw a number of people trying to fish without baskets yesterday. It just looked futile as far as line management goes.
    Hope this helps.

    Gary, I like that. never thought of it. I use strips of weed eater line or the round ties. I just made a basket real quick this time with the weed eater line but want to find a curve rubber maid and put those cones in it. mine is real ratty but it's ok for a bit till I find what I really want. mine is a rubber maid and I like them better. tight lines, now for the pinks to arrive.
