Bass Pro Shops® Bucket Caddy
Color not as shown... still a great product
Still giving this product a 5 star rating due to its usefullness. I always carry a 5 gallon bucket with me to store pre-made rigs and tools. This is the perfect solution to help me organize everything.
My only gripe was that the picture shown on the site was blue and the items i received were red. Being from Hawaii, the most affordable method of shipping was parcel post and took about 3 weeks to arrive. After waiting that long, i wasn't about to wait another 3 weeks to return the order and wait for the correct color. They need to update their item description!

bucket buddy slipping?
I solved the problem of the buddy bucket slipping down the bucket. Put the apron where you want on the bucket and secure it with tiny nuts and bolts. Below the elastic strap, drill thru the top of the material and thru the top of the bucket. Than fasten small bolts, (1/8" x 1/2") with small washer, backed up by a lock washer and nut. I used seven around the top and two on the bottom corners. I waterproofed the bottom corners holes in case I wanted to put minnows in the bucket. Works great!

Works pretty good
This caddy really helps to organize your ice fishing stuff and keep your inner bucket open for flasher and other important things. Don't have it loaded down with things yet so haven't had problems with it sliding down, but that's an easy fix anyway. One thing that could improve is to make the velcro straps shorter above the pockets, there is no need for them to be that long, it's just more of a hassle to use. For the price it's well worth it though.

This bucket caddy is good in keeping your ice fishing equipment organized such as ice rods, rod holders and fishing line. However it has one major flaw on the design. It only has 1 adjustable velcro strap at the top end. You have to tighten it so much in order prevent it from sliding off the bucket so easily. If there was another adjustable strap at bottom end. This would aid the top strap in preventing the caddy from sliding off your bucket.
