Tackle box pic (updated 7/6)

41 posts in this topic

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.

I think the plexi boxes are called "just encase" seem pretty nice and I think you can custom order one any way you like.

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!

    • If you use the vinyl kind it coils horribly and if you use the braided types your trebles get stuck in it. I'm not smart enough to do it but I wish some company could figure it out.  
    • So you are saying we all should have voted for a corrupt Clinton over the other candidates? Or should we go back and forth and point out the failings of Democratic states and go round and round? I voted for Johnson, both parties are useless to me but if you want to put on a blindfold and cry about the other party you go right ahead. It's obvious you can't look at any issue without those tinted political glasses on, I'm sure JV would be happy to fire up a tax based argument based on political leanings.
    • Ahhh. Another shiatty weekend for putzbutton.   "We talked about sore winners in the earlier segment. We really didn’t lose. This was sort of a successful failure,” radio host Mark Thompson said on MSNBC Saturday.   "A successful failure"   See !!   There is a silver lining for you libbers...      
    • Sounds reasonable.  We were just under that at a guy up north west of the metro and we had a 16 footer.  Called about 10-15 places and that was the low side of average.  
    • the guy that smoked it is a pro so I would think he did all the precautions needed. I will see him again this summer and ask him.  
    • Didn't catch the game last night but Parise hasn't looked like himself for sure. With some of the younger guys stepping up and Staal it hasn't hurt us nearly as bad as past years but it would sure be nice to see him get healthy. You kind of knew his contract was going to hurt at some point, hopefully it doesn't start this soon.
    • They look nice but but they also look expensive for what they are.
    • I worked all weekend and got the siding up.  I was hoping to have the diamond plate and the roof on too, but I guess that will wait for next weekend along with the ramp furring strips and wiring.  I should be able to put up the plywood for the roof and the furring strips during the week in my shed since I won't need heat for that.       I called around Friday looking for a spray foamer in my area.  Apparently our local painting company no longer does spray foam.  I had guys that weren't interested, to guys that would do it for 2000 if I supplied a heated building to do it in.  Finally I found a guy about an hour away from me who has done several fish houses before and quoted me 1600 and can do it in his own shop.  I was expecting between 1000 and 1500, so it's just a little over my high end.  Does that sound reasonable on a 21' fish house?
