With Spring nearing, it’s time to come out of winter hibernation and prepare for all the activities spring has to offer, such as fishing. Not sure what to bring or what to prep?
There are endless amounts of gear to bring along on your trip and things you could do to get ready, but we’ve got you covered with the basics. Here’s a rundown of some tackle box essentials and a few things you should do to prepare.

2. Get Other Fishing Gear Ready
Tools, apparel and boating equipment should also be prepared before fishing season opener.
Ensure fishing tools are in good shape. Clean and lubricate pliers, scissors and other tools.
Replace worn or lost items. Restock fish attractant, sunscreen, insect repellent and other commonly used supplies. Inspect and clean rain gear, waders, personal flotation devices and sunglasses. Repair or replace damaged or expired items.
3. Organize Tackle and Restock Supplies
It’s good practice to go through and reorganize gear during the off-season. Here are some tips.
Clean tackle boxes, trays and bags with a damp cloth. Let dry before returning tackle. Go through each tackle tray, making sure the right lures and terminal tackle are where they’re supposed to be based on the organization system you’re using. Label trays to identify contents. This makes it easy to find a tackle and return it to the right spot. Inspect baits. Cut off leftover knot tags and sharpen hooks. Replace damaged hooks and rusty components on lures. Sort through soft-bait packages and fill tackle tray compartments or binder storage bags to stock-up supplies.
