My Lure Boxes and Why I Prefer Them

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

Here is my lure box, usually called a tackle box, but I use this mainly for storing my trolling spoons, thus I refer to it as my “lure box.”
I prefer this set-up over traditional lure storage for several reasons:
1. I don’t have to open the lid and look through drawers or racks of lures. They are all right there visible and handy where I can see them all
2. I can see both sides of them. Some spoons have colors, white or some reflective surface on the back side. With these small crates, with open sides it’s easy to see both sides quickly and easily.
3. They are always out in the open air where they will thoroughly dry and not rust. (especially the hooks of some spoons.)
4. They do not acquire a smell that will repel fish as long as the crates are not stored in your bilge or some other pungent area.
5. They are cheap. You can get them from the dollar store for $1 each.
6. Each one has 4 sides that can be used to organize them by color, size, weight, action or any other way you prefer.
7. The bottom can be used for other tackle, like clip weights, releases, snubbers or whatever you use on a regular basis. Other tackle is stored in a traditional tackle box.
8. The size is good for fitting in smaller places than normal boxes.
9. They are stack-able, even with some lures hanging on them.
There is certainly room for improvement, but I use them and like them for the many reasons stated above.
