How Is My Tackle Box Looking...

Recommended Posts

Hellow all, just joined, and this is my first post.

 

I live in Ohio, just bought me a new 2014 16' 2" Lund Fury this year, and getting back into fishing.

 

I have been working hard at building up my Tackle Box. How do you think I am doing?  :)

 

This is how she currently looks:

Tray 2

Tray 3

Tray 4

My next order will be to fill this tray up:

Megabass Ito Shiner - Length 4.5", Weight 1/2oz, Hook #4, Depth 8-9ft. (Suspending)
(1) Color: GG. Perch

Megabass Ito Vision 110 Squarebill - Length 4.35", Weight 1/2oz, Depth 6-7ft. (Floating)
(1) Color: GG. Gill

Rapala BX Balsa Extreme Jointed Minnow 3-1/2", 5/16oz, 6-8ft, Hook size 6.
(1) Color: Smelt
(1) Color: Gold Shiner

I figure I will move my Smithwick Limited Rogue in the Nuclear Clown color, into the same slot as my new GG. Perch Megabass Ito Shiner, as both are suspending class baits.

That will give me (2) 'Big Boy' Suspending Jerkbaits...

And (4) 'Big Boy' floating...

Cotton Cordell Red Fin - CHR/BLACK BACK
Bomber Long A B15 - Silver/White/Red
Bagley BangOLure Jerk Bait - Baby Bass
Megabass Ito Vision 110 Squarebill Jerkbait - GG. Gill

Probably a healthy ratio of Floaters to Suspenders...
This will also scratch my itch for some more natural looking jerks. smile.gif

I will just line up the 4 floaters on the left side of my tray, so its easy to remember.
My 2 suspenders will go top right.

I wish TW had those old school jointed Rapala minnows.
I would buy one.

Welcome!

It looks like you are developing a nice range of techniques and colors. You might find more versatility in having more than just those few sizes of bullet weights for texas rigging. Do you have any spinnerbaits or buzzbaits hiding in those pockets? Don't forget those! For carolina rigging, you could try some glass beads (8mm), they will make more noise against your sinker than plastic ones, and you can get them pretty cheap at a hobby store or craft store. It doesn't look like you have many crankbaits that go past 10-12 ft. Depending on where you live, if the water goes deeper then you will probably find bass there too.

 

If you want some jointed Rapalas, try ebay. Sometimes you can find new ones, or even just buy used ones and put new hooks on and they should work fine.

Lookin' good!

I will look into picking up some new bullet weights...

and some glass beads too.

 

I don't keep my spinner-baits in that tackle box, but I have them too...

Looks good :) Keeping it that way will be another story after awhile:) Looks like a nice bag too-what kind is it?

 

Also-if all those boxes of tackle are cluttering up things,just send them to me,ill properly dispose of them for ya :)

I will keep you in mind KDW96, if the clutter gets too much out of control. :)

Looks awesome!

 

You might consider adding some Siebert jigs to the jig box. They're unparalleled in quality IMHO!

How do you find anything in that mess?? Mine look more like this,

You have a good selection going, just add to it slowly and one day you too can spend 10 minutes untangling hooks to finally give up and just use whatever comes untangled the easiest.

I would add some walk the dog topwater to it.  A good ole spook works wonders!

I have not had a walk the dog topwater type bait yet.

 

Some good advice, I will have to look into that.

:eyebrows:  That sounds familiar!

 

OP - You have a great selection there. As soon as the weather permits, get out there and fish it!
