Tackle box pic (updated 7/6)

Recommended Posts

I am looking for a big tackle box/bag for hanging big baits. Looking for something besides the plano or lakewood. I use a softside with several boxes right now and am looking for a little easier access. I saw a plexiglass one at the musky show a few years back, but i have not seen them since.

Any suggestions will be appreciated.

Thanks.

I bought a flambeau tackle box from Fleet Farm a couple years ago that was on clearance. They still carry them, but are cheaper at the end of the season. 50 spaces of lures not sure on price.

If money is an issue...I picked up 2-10' pieces of 5" PVC and cut it into 14" sections then fastened them together in a 3x4 grid. Threw on a spare luggage strap I had laying around and bada-bing. I gotta musky box that will fit any size of bait for 20 bucks (from creepers to pounders to bucky's). At any given point I could fit 50+ lures in there depending on the profile of the lure. What's nice is you can expand the case size by adding a few more tubes on there as needed. I'll try and snap a few photos when I get home. Just an idea.

I also did the 4" PVC pipe model, but found that it was a bit heavy. Instead what I did was take a $10 rubbermaid tub, drill a few holes in the bottom, and cut cheap downspout to fit inside. For about $20 I have a customizable box that can fit everything up to 14" Jakes.

I thought about doing something like that around the front seat pedistal. Do the hooks tangle alot. What did you use to connect them together?

The Dunwright is nice but very heavy. I replaced mine with a soft sider Flambeau that I really like.

That's my next plan is to put a few around the front pedestal. I haven't had too much of a problem with hook tangling. The trick is to place lures in the box with the belly of the lure facing the tube in order to keep the hooks a bit more manageable. Here's my plans that I used while constructing, I'll take a pic of the final product when I get a chance this evening.

The justencase boxs are great boxs. I just got mine and mine was the biggest one he has ever built. They hold alot of lures and you can see the lures you want plus these thing are made of polycarbonate which if bonded right almost indestructuble. Call Bob or email him and he will customize anything you want.

I got the (241216D) model which the dimensions are 24L*12W*16H;36 divider sections. I got two inches of height added on to mine which is perfect for the pounders and super model cowgirls and other double bladed baits. The box that I got was 180 bucks not including tax because I picked it up at his house so that shipping rates weren't outrageous. I also got the drawer on the bottom. Great purchase. If i knew how to get pictures up I would definitley show you the box I got loaded with all my stuff.

Setterguy, there is always next year.

I cut notches to keep the baits in place. If you look real close you can see them, not the greatest pic.

Nice box Will. Is that Plexiglass that you used? How tall did you make her? Nothing like good ol' DIY!

    • I just purchased a used 20 gauge for my 14 year old daughter. I hunt mostly state land for pheasants. It is a 2 3/4 auto with interchangeable chokes. What size steel shot and choke tube would you recomend for her?
    • I just got back from a work trip to MI. I could not believe the difference in ground cover. We traveled all the way from Dearborn back to Bemidji heading through the U.P.  Most of MI had very little ground cover but WI was flush, green everywhere! I only got to check a few spots at rest areas but I never saw a thing. The ground was dry at most spots on the way home. I'm gonna go hit my spot tomorrow, hopefully it hasn't been picked yet!
    • love those when ya see them!!!
    • Took the kayak crappie fishing opening weekend and when calm always bring with the DSLR with. These turtles are glad the weather has finally consistently warmed up. I always find it funny seeing turtles stacked on top of each other and found a few along with multiple species which was nice.     
    • I was going to hunt wi this weekend but fishing musky with my fly rod is what I will do instead.  Good luck!!!!!!!
    • Anyone still at it?   not sure that i will get Isaac out anymore, will still ask these last few days.   Good luck everyone.
    • Haha, sounds like you have a good head on your shoulders and great perspective, Borch.  Plus, I think it's good to be upset about missing!  It motivates a guy to take more selective shots and make better shots.  My shot selection was ok, but my execution was not good.  I made a good shot at a stationary target, but the target was walking.  D-U-M, dumb!!!  Such is life!  Next year Morgan and I will shoot turkeys (as long as I can still get her out there).  
    • From what I read the idiot did not tell anybody....was asked to play in the World's and declined saying his wrists hurt so they made him go in and found the torn tendons...what a duffus.
    • It reminds me if the first year I took my son turkey hunting.  He had several close calls but didn't get a bird.  He was upset.  I said, "Why are you upset?  We got to hunt together for several days and had several exciting encounters.  If you shot one the first day we would have missed all that fun together"  He thought about it for a while and he smiled.  The older I get, the less its about the kill.  Reframing what I thought success was has added to my hunts.  Now, if I could get less upset when I miss a bird I'd have it all figured out.
