Importance of Fishing Tackle Storage

You finally sneak up on a school of redfish, make the perfect cast and hook into a good one but the leader pops… are you able to find your backup lure and re-rig in time to catch another? Having a dedicated system for tackle storage makes sure you have everything you need when and where you need it. The accessibility is important but so is the quality of your tackle storage, life is too short for frayed line and rusty hooks. A good tackle box keeps your tackle dry, secure, and organized.

Types of Boat Tackle Storage


Looking to add some tackle storage under your learning post? Free-standing tackle boxes are the perfect option, they have a fully enclosed exterior and can be easily mounted to the floor of your boat or secured to the leaning post. Usually found under a leaning post, along the transom, or in the pilothouse, they are a great way to add storage to any area on your boat.

Built-in tackle boxes are designed to fit into empty or unused space making them an incredibly efficient use of the limited area on your boat. These qualities make them the perfect fit for installing into areas like consoles, gunwales, or transoms. We often see inset tackle boxes used to fill the void of factory-installed accessories like refrigerators, cabinets, or under gunwale rod storage.

Tackle Box Installation

Installing a tackle box is as easy as measure, cut, and install. When it comes to installing, boxes should be through-bolted to the mounting surface, however, self-tapping screws can also be used. We recommend adding a bead of sealant around the box before installing to keep the area watertight. Please reach out if you have questions.
