Grab your UV protection fishing shirt and your fishing mask, but before you head out to that water, you need to make sure you are prepared. Along with the right performance fishing gear, a properly packed tackle box will have everything you need to be successful for your fishing trip. While some people choose to pack a tackle box just for the day and others choose to have everything and anything handy, there are some items you should always have with you. If you are missing just one of these essential items, your fishing trip could end in a disaster.
Filling Your Tackle Box
Not filling your tackle box with the right gear is like neglecting to wear sun protective clothing for fishing and wondering why you are sunburned. What you fill your tackle box with will vary on what you are trying to catch and where you are, but at Gillz Gear we want to give you a list of just some of the basics that you will need with almost every trip you take.
- Extra line
- Plastic worms
- First aid kit
- Nail Clippers
- Sunscreen- Even if you have UV blocking shirts and fishing masks, it is still a good idea to pack sunscreen.
- Bug spray
- Ruler or scale
- Soap, wipes, and hand sanitizer to wash your hands
- Rag, cloth
This list is not all encompassing, but it is a good starting point. At Gillz Gear we suggest not only following this basic tackle box checklist but also adding to it as necessary. Do not forget to get your Gillz Gear performance fishing gear and UV blocking shirts either.
