What do you need in your Tackle-Box?

Before going to your favorite fishing spot, ensure you've gone through your fishing tackle box. Trust us, having the appropriate equipment is crucial when you're out on the water.

Naturally, what you pack in your tackle box may differ based on the fish you're aiming to catch. However, here's a standard tackle box setup to help you (or someone special) begin.

Tackle-Box Checklist

  • Extra fishing line
  • Lures or flies
  • Bobbers (or, floaters) 
  • Swivels, to keep fishing line from twisting
  • Leaders
  • Sinkers (or, weights)
  • Different sizes of hooks (for different types of fish)
  • Needle nose pliers, to help remove hooks out of fish (and maybe you!)
  • Stringer, to hold all the fish you catch
  • Sharp knife (such as a Swiss Army knife)
  • Ruler/scale
  • A small flashlight
  • First-aid kit (with basics just in case a hook gets stuck in your thumb)
  • Insect repellent
  • Sunscreen
