My new tackle box!

23 posts in this topic

Ok so my dad and I were at Fleet Farm last night and we stumbled by this great deal!!

We at first had 2 of these tackle boxes filled to the gills:

and then we converted both of our boxes into this one, it came with 8 plastic boxes inside of it and we only really used 3 of them.

I have a similar bag that holds 6 boxes, my problem is most of the boxes are filled with crank baits which take up a lot of space. I do like my bag, but for some strange reason it is getting awful heavy. I wonder if it could be all the gear I manage to stuff in all the side pockets? Hmmmmmmmmmmm.........

Jordyn, I have the exact same tackle set up that you and dad do now. I took a sharpie and wrote on the sides of the boxes what is in each, generally speaking: crank baits, stick baits, top water/bass stuff, spinner rigs and terminal tackle. It makes looking for stuff a lot easier and if someone else is fishing with you all you have to do is tell them which box it is in.

Oh yeah, the front pocket will hold a medium size box that I put all of my jigs in, each bin labeled of course

Yes, it does get heavy, but I rarely take it out of the boat

I have also have a bag set up, i got mine from 'Belas and its in a back pack form. there is room for four boxes down below and I can put all my plastics and another 2 boxes in the top inside pouch. my clippers, pliers and that sorta stuff go in the top outside pouch. it even has a pocket for a gps or camera.

I love the back pack form because it makes carrying it very very easy and allows me to carry rods and other things without having to worry about it slipping off my shoulder.

tackle bags are deff the way to go

"looking". I'm do for a new tackle box 10 years is a long time for the old boy but its time to retire it with honor.

Yup. I'm careful to only buy bags / boxes with heavy duty, large "toothed" zippers. Chincy, fine zippers don't last long in my boat.

If you don't mind me asking, how much was it? It looks like exactly what I'm looking for and if the price is right I'm gonna go look at it tomorrow.

    • One reason for me to be muzzleloading is to scout areas for next bow season.  I liked this low area I found yesterday.  I got a good feel for how the deer use it.  Saw one small 8 and had two put their tracks in mine, but out of sight.  I'd hunt it differently with a bow.  
    • wear a good balaclava and get a open face with a cold weather breath box never had a problem
    • In my opinion I would look for a nice used wingmaster 2 of my friends have bought a new 870 express about a year apart and they both had the same shell extraction problems. Maybe just a fluke but when I see two different people have the same problem with a Gun makes me think to find a different choice. Heck I have a Mossberg 500 that I treat like poop and I have never had one single malfunction.   I have shot my friends newer express and I can really tell the difference in quality beside my wingmaster  
    • I have Ice Kings.  They are in a word, awesome.  They are about 20-25 years old. Dang I hate dating myself but I have never even bought new liners for these boots.  They are probably one of the finest products I won.  I have never had so much as a chill i my feet.  I usually fish outside but if I am in a flip over, my feet are usually on the ice.  Again, never a chill.  I typically wear a midnight smart wool sock.   For some reason I have been considering new boots.  I guess it is the weight, I would love to have something that is not s heavy and also has better traction.   Today I visited Joe's Sporting Goods and saw some really nice boots (they have a great selection) by Muck, Lacrosse, Sorel, Baffin and some other Canadian made boot that looked very nice. I checked out the ice Kings........they are not the same boot as I have, they don't seem to have the quality to me.  They might be as warm but the rubber feels more stiff almost like it would crack, the uppers are solid leather, mine are leather and corder combo.  The liner also seemed thinner.   After looking at all the boots, I am surprised none offer water proof uppers. Also I am not entirely certain why some seem extend up to your knee with insulation.  Just seems like Over kill because most who would where these boots owed also have some sort of insulated pant on.  Overall I found the boots to be pretty heavy, I was surprised with 20 years past boots have not advanced more.
    • But will be missed but most.............you mad bro?    
    • You boxed yourself.   He was not supporting the Vikings stadium, he was saying that Republicans supported it and now are feigning outrage over the cook subsidy. And then not to be outdone the Republicans are now celebrating the Carrier subsidy.   Pretty much just reinforced his point.      
    • Think we should change the topic to "Trump for Trees."........and all will be well.
    • Had to go all the way back to Missouri to hunt in the snow this year! Beautiful morning but not much movement. Did see some late rut activity Friday.
    • Dotch, you guys over there are almost famous....   Almost because it is Waseca, but whatever.    Mark Seeley's weather blog... http://blog-weathertalk.extension.umn.edu/   .... Waseca now reports 54.13 inches of precipitation for 2016 and this is a new statewide annual precipitation record, surpassing the old one of 53.52" at St Francis (Anoka County) in 1991.
      ....   And an interesting thought...(from Mark, not me) Commentary on Winter TIME: No question will be answered this week, but I want to take TIME to make a comment about Winter TIME. Managing the TIME in the Winter Season in Minnesota is a different ball game than other seasons of the year, because everything takes longer. No question winter will be felt more frequently soon in the daily weather, and snowfalls will become more frequent this month. The rash of bicycle, pedestrian, and vehicular accidents reported during the snow storms towards the end of November reminded me about adjusting for Winter TIME. Our concept of time needs to be adjusted. Lengthen the time intervals that you have intuitively built-into your everyday habits and tasks. It takes longer to walk places, longer to drive places, longer to dress and undress, longer to warm up the car, longer to degomble (shed snow) when you come into the house. You need to make time to shovel snow, scrape the windshield, clean the furnace filters, When you walk take shorter steps and not too fast...put the boots, gloves and hat on when you go outside....check on the neighbor if their place hasn't been shoveled...everything should slow down..except for the long Minnesota goodbye..that is better shortened...just say goodbye, open the door, leave and close the door behind you....no need to stand in an open doorway for minutes conversing about last minute stuff. Winter TIME is an adjustment that may save you anxiety, regret, or even injury.
