Taking my dad out crabbing next weekend for fathers day.  Typically we use bull lip and my baited line will fit into a 5 gallon bucket.  We are going to try razor clams this time.  I know that wont fit into a 5 gallon bucket.  My question is for those that use clams on a 1200' line what do you use to store the line in?  I was thinking about getting this from Walmart, but wasn't sure if it would be big enough.

When I bait with clams, I can get 600' into an orange basket.  I need 2 orange baskets to store 1200' of clams.  My "clam lines" are only 600' long and I just clip each section together to make up the length that I want to run that day

Hey CrazyStups,
I use the Walmart 20 Gal. garbage can. Cheap, nice handles and 1,200' line with bags fits just right.

I've used those round plastic totes with rope handles Walmart sells for like $5 or a trashcan for a 1200 ft line. I also like my lines in 600 ft sections so you can easily split them like D said.

20 gallon Rubbermaid "Brute" trash can.  I used to buy the cheep cans and they did not hold up to the abuse that i dished out. the Brute cans i have are 15 yrs old & still going.  it fits 1200 soft lay with bags & pipe

I have a lot of baits on my line and find the 32 gallon trash can a better fit.  And that height allows for deployment over the rim and out of my boat.  For comparison, those rope tubs that hold 600’ so we’ll are typically 17 gallon.
