Umbrella rigs catch plenty of fish, but they don't do much for saving space on my 22-foot center console. To keep them out of the way and from getting tangled, I store my rigs in two-liter soda bottles. Carefully cut the bottom of the bottle off with a razor blade and remove the cap. An umbrella rig folds neatly inside, and several bottles will stand in a cooler or onboard fishbox. When the day is done, just hose the rigs down while they're still in the bottles, and the water will drain out of the bottom.
