Tackle box that protects tackle

    I have about $1000+ worth of ice fishing jigs that have been essentially ruined from getting beat up in the sled. Maybe it’s $2000+, honestly I don’t want to know. I am in search of a new box that will keep them from rattling together and getting all beat up and I am looking for suggestions. I believe this was talked about in the last few months but I did a quick search and couldn’t locate the thread. Please provide a link if you know the thread.

    How about a cheap fly box? Some of them can hold a couple of hundred flies.

    I use one for panfish jigs but I haven’t seen any that would work for jigging spoons, raps etc. that I use for walleye, trout etc. If you have one that you think would work I’d be interested in a link or a brand name to search.

    I don’t mean this rudely, but am generally curious. Why carry around that much tackle?

    Go to FISHMORE.com. They had a booth at the ice show. They had some nice looking and functional boxes. I purchased some jigging boxes.

    I have the slotted foam jig boxes from clam and they work well. They rode in my cargo box on my snowmobile all last season and never had a problem

    Thanks for the suggestions. Those fish more’s look nice. Is the plastic tough on them?

    Not only did I ruin tackle I broke some of Plano plastic boxes within the soft sided tackle bag. I make 10-25 mile runs on big water and speed is necessary which is tough on gear with rough ice.

    Good question. I certainly don’t need it all. I had all ice tackle in one bag that held several Plano boxes. I was too lazy to shift tackle around depending on the species, location etc. I am now going to set up the boxes species specific and scale way back on what I bring. I had a tackle addiction and had way more than any guy could need but I am going to try to scale back as I rebuild and try to keep them nice.

    Agreed. I keep everything I can on my sled versus in the otter flip over. Electronics, auger, rods, tackle, heater, etc. Only thing that goes in the tub is the propane tank.

    Fishmore is the best box ive found for keeping spoons seperated, and not taking up a ton of space like the Clam ones. I have 2, one in the smaller spoon size, and one in the larger spoon size, both 3700 size boxes. Those go with me on the lake. Then have Gamakatsu G Boxes for all my bulk storage at home.

    This seems like a odd statement coming from a Bass Fishermen. They are know to carry around more tackle than just about any group of fishermen on earth. I could not tell you how many bass fishermen who had to buy a bigger boat just because they needed more tackle storage space.

    Lures being ruined because paint has chipped off = custom color painting fun.

    If you or anyone else need any let me know. I got a ton of beat up jigs I’d let go for cheap.

    I will take you up on that.

    If you place the small hooks in a chunk of foam it will stop them from banging around so much. You can buy these plastic tubes in bulk for cheap.

    Gruv boxes or the boxes from Nicole stone outdoors work perfect for protecting jigs.

    Lol. Agree. I like the box design, actually bought from another supplier here in canada. The Gruv box is slick for jigs.
