Why Do You Need a Tacklebox?


A tacklebox or a tackle bag is a necessity to store your fishing lures, bobbers, and hooks.

A tacklebox is a necessity to store your expensive lures. The more you fish the more expensive lures you will accumulate. I can't imagine over time having a tangled mess of barbed metal to contend with. Nothing beats staying organized. Therefore, having a tacklebox is a must.

So the question remains what type of tackle box do you need? There are many different types of tackleboxes to choose from. I suggest a tackle box with sufficient storage for your current needs then double it. Also to keep in mind your tacklebox should have sufficient compartments to hold some oversized lures. You wouldn't want the oversized lures to tangle maps, leaders, or bandages.

What should you include in your tacklebox?

  • Bandage strips contained in a water-resistant container
  • Matches sealed in a water-resistant container
  • Suntan lotion
  • Flashlight and spare batteries
  • Spare car key in a small case attached to a large colorful bobber. (Hint: The bobber has to be large enough so that the small case does not sink).
  • For the salt-water enthusiast, tackle bags may be a practical alternative to tackle boxes. These tackle bags have plastic cylinders inside to hold saltwater lures. As well, the tackle bags have side compartments for leaders.

    Although the tackle bags are convenient, remember not to lay your tackle bag on the sand as the tide can sweep up your tackle bag and take it to unknown places along with your expensive saltwater lures and your car keys. Or may have the unfortunate fate of having your tackle bag run over by a four-wheel drive vehicle or a dune buggy. Yes, this can happen.
