"It can be a bit intimidating when you’re on a big, stained water lake like Lake of the Woods. The sand flats stretch out for miles and it can feel like it will take forever to find the best places to catch walleyes.

To protect my investment, I've always tried not to let them get beat up in my tackle trays too much. Heck, I've even packed some of my most expensive ones in cotton balls. I don't want them to get chipped or cracked whatsoever.
The Lure Lock Medium Cavity 3 has proven to be a near-perfect solution for keeping my collection safe. In the photo above, just those nine crankbaits are worth well over ..." Click To Learn More >> Lure Lock Tackle Box Medium 3 Cavity Review
