Pack Basket Modifications

by Scott C. in Minnesota

Modifications include:
Hardwood runners on the bottom of basket for stabilization
Plywood piece on bottom of basket which reinforces the bottom of the basket
I filled in the holes in the bottom of the basket and drilled new ones on the opposite side.  If left unplugged the old holes will allow water to drain out and while carrying the basket it will result in wet pants
Bait containers made of PVC the size of normal 1 oz. lure jars were riveted on.  This keeps it organized and keeps everything from bouncing around and/or breaking
I also bolted on a section of PVC for my hammer
Those alligator style clips hold my gloves onto the side of th basket
