A tackle box can be handy. First, you can always use it for storing and transporting your tackle. If it’s durable enough, you will be able to use it as a seat as well. However, in that case, the box will be quite large and heavy. You have to decide what exactly you want and expect from the box.
I’ve picked 5 best tackle boxes for you. To make a choice of your own, I advise checking out my Buyer’s Guide.
Top 5 Best Tackle Boxes in 2019
1Lakewood Musky Tackle Box — Most Durable and Sophisticated
This is a great tackle box, but it does have one major disadvantage: it is hilariously overpriced. But it’s still a good tackle box, one that I don’t recommend unless you want a box to sit on it. It’s durable enough for that.
You can keep everything you need in the box. Even a fishing rod, provided its transport length no more than 18 inches and a half. You don’t even have to worry about losing the case in the water. Even if you drop it, it’s not going to sink, as it is nigh-air-tight when closed.
- High capacity
- Made in the US
2Spiderwire Wolf Tackle Bag — Most Convenient
This tackle box has a large capacity and is reasonably durable, although not as much as any of the Musky cases known for their durability and also high price. Speaking of the cost, you don’t have to worry about this case being too expensive, because it is not. The problem with this case is that it has weak trays, but other than that, it’s great.
- High-quality zippers
- 1680 denier polyester
- Multiple compartments
- Trays. It’s nice that the case comes with them, but they could be of higher quality
3Plano PLAB35110 Tackle Case — Best Bang for the Buck
If you really don’t like the idea of paying the price of a Musky case, and even less expensive options seem prohibitively expensive to you, I advise trying this fishing tackle box. They don’t get any cheaper. If it’s still too expensive for your tastes, you can just make a tackle box yourself. At least you can be sure it will be of high quality if you know your way with tools. But if you want a ready-made tackle box, you can’t get it cheaper than this, not one of quality though.
- Cheap. While it's far from the most durable tackle box you can find, you can't deny it's cheap.
- Utility trays
- Multiple compartments
- Thin material. You can not expect an underpriced tackle box made of premium materials.
4Aventik Mag Reel Combo Case — Reels’ Tackle Box
Do you need a place to store all those reels? If you have a lot of them and you want all of them packed, this tackle box is the right choice for you. It’s a dedicated reel tackle box with a dozen compartments. The type of the reel doesn’t matter with this tackle box, as it has a place for any.
The box isn’t durable, though, but I guess that’s not the point.
It is especially useful if you’re into trolling fishing or spinning fishing.
- Heavy-duty molded zippers
- Made especially for reels
- 12 compartments
- I can't really think of a disadvantage. I guess I wouldn't advise sitting on it, but that's not really a bad thing
5Elkton Outdoors Rolling Tackle Box — Easiest to Transport
If carrying the tackle box is too much for you, you don’t have to worry about that anymore. With this rolling tackle box, transportation is more comfortable. All you have to do I to grab the handle and pull. It’s that easy.
Speaking of transportation, it’s not the only advantages. The box also comes with rod holders, and I think it is more than convenient for really dedicated anglers. Even if the rod is too long, it doesn’t matter, because it’s outside the box.
Assembling the reel does not cause any significant problems, and the reel looks very good on any rod. It is very fast..
- Rod Holders
- Tight zippers
