Lucky Tackle Box XL Bass Review/Giveaway

What comes to mind when you hear Summer? For some it is the beach.. the lake.. BBQs.. Well, in our family, it is camping and fishing!

We love to head to the lake for the weekend and camp out. My husband will wake up at a god awful early time and head to the shore to get his poles in the water! He can sit there for hours on end, casting and recasting until he snags that perfect fish. Most of the time with great success!

So I was really happy when I was given the chance to review the #1 subscription box for folks who fish - Lucky Tackle Box!

This is a monthly box you can receive that is jam packed with fishing goodies like Lures, Jigs, Bait, etc.

You get to choose between several different types of fish that you were shooting for on your fishing trip.

Each type of box is designed with the tackle that is best for that specific fish type. You can choose from: Bass, Bass XL, Catfish, In-Shore Saltwalter, Multi-Species, Panfish, Walleye, Trout and Fly Fishing!

Each box comes with around $50 in merchandise  to use. I'm not sure if each box or month comes with different values. as I could not find that on the site but my particular box, when priced out by item, was worth $50!

The cost of the subscriptions are as follows: 1 month is $14.99 or $24.99 for the XL boxes, 3 months is $14.39 or $23.99, 6 months is $14.24 or $23.79 and 12 months is $13.75 or $22.92 per box.

Not a bad deal for new tackle each month!

I was given a few things in my box to add to my husband's tackle box. The card that comes with the box lists each brand included, along with their website addresses so that he can purchase more of the ones he likes best.

Among the items in the box I received are a package of Hammerhead Crank Bait, Assorted Crank bait, Flat Wild 4", Fat gap flat nickel hooks, Link top-water bait, and Chatterfrog.

Now to someone who doesn't fish, this is all a bunch of gibberish and possibly made up words, but for someone who fishes, this is some pretty top quality stuff!

The cool thing about this box is that once you receive it (shipped every 10th of the month), you can go onto their website and watch a video on how to use everything that you received in your box! How cool is that?

Also included in the box is The Biggest Little Book on fishing, a small guide to the items that are included in your box as well as some little tidbits that are fun to read.

So we live in Sunny Southern California where as of late our lakes and rivers have become more abundant. We are finally starting to get through the dreaded drought and our lakes are flourishing.

We took our Lucky Tackle Boxes on two separate trips to the lake.

Our first trip was to Lake Dixon in Escondido, CA. This lake is known for their Bass and Catfish.

We had two days of fishing and were in a pretty secluded spot in the shade where normally the fish would migrate to.

Day 1, we had no luck, nothing even bit. It was a really hot day so I'm assuming that the fish were all in the deeper water.

The second day we were able to catch a nice sized Catfish (with the bass tackle, using the worms).

I will not blame the product whatsoever for the lack of catching fish because we even switched out to our typical lures and bait and still were unsuccessful.  Just a bad trip apparently.

Even a bad day fishing has its consolations.
Our second trip was to Lake Hemet in Mountain Center, CA. They are known for their Bass, Blue Gill and Catfish. I knew I should have gotten the Catfish box too!

This trip we were also unsuccessful on catching anything worth noting. I look forward to trying this gear out again on our next trip to the lake.

Would I recommend this box to my fishing buddies? Of course! Who wouldn't love to get new fishing gear each month to try and up their fishing game?

Now would I recommend this subscription box to my stubborn grandfather? Probably not! We all know that the old timer fishermen have their ways of doing it and have learned their ways over the years of fishing.

I feel like he would look at some of the stuff and think 'what is wrong with my old lure?"

But for the fisher looking to get to know some of the products out there, I think this would make a great gift for the fathers and brothers in your lives - as well as the mothers and sisters who fish! I wish that I had had my hands on this box in time for Fathers Day - this would have made a stellar gift for my husband.

Give them a look at their social media pages and see what they are all about. I think you will be thoroughly pleased by their products. I know that we were.  And then read on to see how you can enter to win an XL Bass Box from Lucky Tackle Box!
