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

Jordyn I was a fleet a weak ago and saw those boxes and what a great deal they are. Well I guess I'm going back to do some more

"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.

    • A CO2 detector also protects you from what comes into your house thru a cracked window. Had mine go off last week on red. Turns out the wind had changed and generator exhaust was now blowing towards house. Generator was 50' from the house. 
    • After I got laid off awhile back I searched all of the above daily.  There would be some duplicate jobs posted on every site but a large number would only be found on one site or the other.  Companies seem to have their preferred job board and then stick to it for all their job postings so you really need to look at all of them.    Also don't over look the idea of targeting companies.  If you know a certain area you'd be looking to move to look to see what companies in that area might be able to use someone with your skills.  Then look at those companies job boards if they have them or send in a resume to their HR dept to see if they have any openings.  There are a lot of hidden jobs out there that don't get posted to a normal job board so you need to be savvy to find them.    A recruiter can also help but you need to find the right recruiter. I worked with a few and only one was really any good and had connections to the right kind of jobs for me.  If you can find one that specializes in your field then it might be worth connecting with one.  When i did it didn't cost me anything but a little bit of my time and they were able to hook me up with a decent contract job to help fill in the gap until i got on full time somewhere. 
    • Trump Touts "People Are Seeing Big Stuff” After GM Unveils 7,000 New U.S. Jobs   Confirming rumors that leaked yesterday, GM has just announced plans to invest $1 billion in its U.S. manufacturing operations and add 7,000 jobs domestically, over the next "few years".  Of course, the move follows similar announcements from Ford and Fiat-Chrysler over recent weeks in an apparent effort to appease the incoming Trump administration amid threats of a 35% import tariff and after years of outsourcing automotive manufacturing jobs to Mexico.  To add icing to the cake, GM notes that 450 of the new jobs will come from insourcing jobs previously moved to Mexico.          The winning continues...
    • Hyundai To Boost Investment In The US To $3.1 Billion Over 5 Years   Korea's Hyundai Motor Group said it plans to lift U.S. investment by 50 percent to $3.1 billion over five years and may build a new plant there - the latest auto firm to announce fresh spending after President-elect Donald Trump threatened to tax imports.      
    • This is our year! i feel there is something different about them! I see the passion and intensity they have. Putting the puck on the net is key!
    • OK, let's play you're game. Deficits and debt are no problem, I'll take your word for it.    Please tell me then:
      Why does YOUR party want to reduce the debt?
      Why was your party against debt when Obama was racking it up?
      Why do you vote for Republicans when you don't agree with them on very many issues?
    • What I worried about in the past and why I was not to high on them was because Parise and Sutter were supposed to carry the load but that is evidently no longer the case.  The Sophomores and Juniors have "figured it out" and have stepped up and are carrying the team...not to mention Stall is "reborn".  IMO as long as Dubnyk stays healthy I don't think we have anything to worry about. It is all about he playoffs now as they'd have to take a huge step back not to get in IMO....we'll so how far they can go....with this new found success.
