Best Tackle Boxes for Fishing

When it comes to tackle boxes, there’s pretty much three different types of tackle boxes to choose from.  First there’s the regular old tackle box with trays.  Second you have tackle boxes with drawers.  Third there is the new style called tackle bags and they use drawers just like the second type I mentioned.


So what type of tackle box is the best you might ask?  Well, to me I’m definitely gonna have to go with the new style, the tackle bags with trays. 

I’ll tell you some important reasons why. 

One main reason is the effortless way of carrying the tackle bag, it has both a sling and a handle. 

If you fly fish or travel through mountainous regions to get to your special fishing spot, the sling will provide support while just having a handle will be very uncomfortable and you probably won’t get very far.  And having drawers provides easy access!  Drawers also prevent lures from being mixed up, I’ve always had that problem with regular tray tackle boxes.

The second best is having a tackle box with just drawers.  While the handle won’t give you support like a tackle bag sling will, having drawers in your tackle box is the second best thing to have.  It provides easy access like I said above, doesn’t allow your lures or weights to be mixed up.  And easy closeup provides not having to deal with awkward function of trays.

Third best or should I just say the last on the list is the old style tackle boxes.  This relic type of fishing equipment is a thing of the past.  Trays never tend to close right.  If you hit a wave in your boat your lures will mix together.  Or even if you accidentally tip over your tackle box your lures will mix.  And the handle is the most uncomfortable way to carry your lures around.  This is what I currently have and let me tell you I’m ready to upgrade.

Eight years ago when I was younger, they really didn’t have many different styles of tackle boxes to choose from.  I just went with the biggest, while it was a great buy at the time.  It isn’t anymore, I’ve had many problems with my old style tackle box.  The lures are never independent from one another, the hooks are always snagged with one another, and the trays never close right if a lure is popping up.  And when it comes time to cleaning the tackle box, the trays make it even harder to clean in the back areas.

The box has lasted me through the years, but I’m ultimately sick of it.  Since I just bought a new Crestliner fishing boat, I am short on money.  But I can tell you this, soon as I get a little money in my bank, next purchase is going to be a tackle bag from Bass Pro Shops.
