bass fishing luresAnglers all have one thing in common: tons of fishing lures.  We have spinnerbaits to topwaters and they are all in different color schemes.  If you are like me, I like to make sure all my lures are organized within a nice sized tackle box (or two).  Depending on your level of fishing, be it only a hobby or you are a professional in the sport, you may have different needs when it comes to your tackle box.  This led me to this informational guide of the best tackle boxes and their special features.
