7 Tips To Organize Your Tackle Box

When you are a FishVault subscriber, one thing you can be sure of is that you are going to get plenty of tackle, baits, and lures. At some point, that is going to require you to organize your tackle box.

Someone once said “preparation is key” and the same advice rings true for the sport of fishing. Experienced anglers would agree that an organized fishing tackle box can make for a more productive and enjoyable day on the water. The opposite can result in waisted time, fewer catches, and a frustrating experience.

To ease your mind, here are 7 tips for how to set up a fishing tackle box and keep a lure in the water while maintaining your sanity:

  1. Select fishing tackle boxes or bags that are suitable for your needs and that have plenty of storage and organization options.
  2. Use clear compartment boxes to store and organize terminal tackle such as lures, hooks, and sinkers.
  3. First, sort tackle by the type of species you’re targeting; bass fishing tackle in one box, backcountry saltwater tackle in another. Then, sort by the type of tackle; topwater baits together, spoons together, crankbaits together, etc.
  4. Preserve soft plastic baits in the bags or containers they came in. Avoid mixing colors or placing soft baits with hard baits as the chemicals can cause damage and the colors can bleed into each other.
  5. Label the outside of each box.
  6. Utilize side pouches for spools of line.
  7. Place pliers, line-cutters, and de-hookers in an easy-to-reach external pouch.

Now that you know how to set up a fishing tackle box, it’s time to put these tips to the test! Unbox your next FishVault fishing subscription box and find a home for all the exciting tackle. Happy organizing!
