What Does Your Tackle Box Weigh?

Recommended Posts

Been going through all my tackle the last couple days and took out everything I "possibly could" to cut down on the weight. Alas, this is where it ended up (TW shipment comes next week):image.thumb.jpeg.4f1063a18363bfcbcaa40fd

Still seems way too heavy. 

What does yours weigh?

I weighed my worm bag...full from all the south FL fishing I did back in the 80's and 90's.  By itself it weighed over 15 lbs.  Not sure about the other two tackle boxes...BTW, all the worms are still in good shape and not a melted mess.

My tackle box has a neat trolling motor attachment and needs to be trailered.

It's pretty heavy but there's still plenty of room for more

I don't want to know.

Depends what I put in it. All my tackle stays in my truck and I bag only what I want for going out on the water. I fish from the bank and a kayak.

Too much.  Usually load 3 in the boat.  Which ones depend on plan for the day.  Probably overkill, since what I use in a day could probably fit in a lunch box.  But I still carry a bunch for the same reason your mother told you to always put on clean underwear... because you never know.

Too heavy for sure. But too afraid to take anything out!

Before the trip: Oh I don't really need that last crankbait (takes it out).  After the trip: If I only had that one crankbait I took out I would have slayed them (puts it back in).

I'm pretty ruthless about taking stuff out; when you're a bank fisherman, you don't want a 25 lb. bag weighing you down. I just cut mine down to 10 lbs.

Yes, I stay with th k.i.s.s. approach.

It's been working well for me close to 35 years now of bass fishing.

And if I use 20 percent of what's in there in a days fishing, that would be high.

I also stay with the k.i.s.s approach but what I use and what I carry are two different things, better carry and not need than need and not carry.

I fish out of a kayak I have 3 gallon zip bags. One terminal, 1 creature baits, and 1 senko/sassy stick. 3 Plano 3600 hard baits. Plus stuff stuffed in other crevices throughout my yak.

I would say my backpack weighs between 15-20 fully loaded and my tackle bag probably weighs close to 30-40.  When the pack is on my back and the bag is slung across my body it's not bad.  Remember, soldiers carry 75-100 pounds on 30 mile runs.  Suck it up and fill it up...
