So...before this last trip, I bought a new one. Boy is it AWESOME!!! The new tackle box is all one peice with no trays. It boasts 6 extra large trays that make up to 74 areas for lures. It comes with double closure (one on each side) to ensure that the case closes securely.
Now...I do not know about all of you but I need 74 areas. As a matter of fact...I need 740 areas but I will work with the 74. I like to have a wide array of lures available to me at any point and time...and I love for them to all be organized and color coordinated. Color coordination in a tackle box is important.
Bass Pro Shops user reviews gives this tackle box a 4.5 out of 5 STAR rating. A few reviews say things like:
"This box is huge and durable..."
"This is a great tackle box with lots of room..."
"Has plenty of room for all types of tackle..."
"Sturdy and Spacious..."
and my favorite...
"This is THE Box..."
I am in total agreement with all of the above user reviews. This box did replace my old one quite adequately. I do admit to feeling pretty sad about leaving my old box at home. I thought maybe its feelings were hurt that I did not want to take it fishing anymore. But Oh Well...I needed a better place to store my pretty fish food.
The best thing about this tackle box is that it closes up nicely and pushes up against the side of your boat and stay pretty much out of the way while you fish. There are no trays all over the boat. AND most importantly, I found that it made a nice pillow for those long trips across a big lake.
It unfortunately only comes in green and beige. As you all may have guessed...I was really looking for something in PINK!!! So my next question is...of course...can you paint tackleboxes with spray paint? LOL...
Happy Lure Storing and Tight Lines ~
