Starting lineup storage in General Discussion Posted January 18 Actually, I leave the lures - even crankbaits on my lines when stacked together and laying in a pile in the back of the boat. Two things which help. One is hook the lure to the front part of the reel,either on the level wind cross piece or to a cross piece just below the level wind mechanism. Second, grab the line between the tip and reel (not the part going through the line guides) then give the rod a two or three spins. This will lock the line against the rod and it won't be like a bow string. If I have 12 rods in the pile, maybe one or two will be goobered a bit.
