Sea fishing tackle box in rib recommendations

I need a new tackle box for reels/spools/hooks/leads/traces/priest/pliers/swivels/scissors etc. Any recommendations folks?

Depends how big you want to go & how much gear you want to carry.
A plastic seat box as used by coarse anglers holds a huge amount of kit but might be too big. That said, although it fits in my boat easily, once the rods are set up it usually lives in the car as I use a plastic bucket with a clip on lid to carry what I need for the day. Saves carting it back & forth to stop it being pinched. I have several - one for sea fishing kit. This sort of thing:NEW Shakespeare Beta Coarse Fishing Seat Box - Blue - 1155173 | eBay

Lots of boxes, bags etc used by carp anglers that would probably suit, get a copy of a fishing magazine with one of the free tackle catalogues from such places as 'Glasgow Angling Centre' they keep putting in them.
Or look for a large tackle shop near you & pop in.

As above, main box lives in the car, no point having to wash off EVERYTHING when you get home. No matter how careful you are the salt water gets everywhere.

I've got a Leeda tackle box, it fits everything I need to make up traces/rig etc. these traces then go into a rig wallet along with a few swivels/quick links and the like.

All I take on board is a flare tub that has the leads in, i then chuck in the rig wallet, a couple of reels, pliers, T-bar and digi scales. Its so easy just to have the one little tub rather than a big box.

Top tip... In my rig wallet I carry a few ziplock bags, once a trace/tackle has been used I stick it in a ziplock then wash it at home, this way nothing goes rusty.

Seems that my 2ftx1ft, clear £3 box from the cheapo shop is the way to go. Just need a new lid then. Ta

Depends what fishing your doing.
I use mainly Plano for larger boxes. But why would you need to keep reels in it? (Don't they just live on your rod?)
On my small rib for light fishing I bring lure boxes and a Plastic waterproof ammo box to keep everything dry. It works for me.

But like most fisherman, however hard I try to be tidy my shit is still a mess.

Not a tackle box as such but something really convenient and practical.

Buy a 5ltr plastic fuel can and cut an access hole in one side, leaving the handle in place. Drill some drain holes in the bottom and some profiled holes in the top for your knife, pliers, snips, disgorger etc. Throw all your weights inside and you'll have a really handy storage point.

Here's a photo of my charter one without storage points (my RIB one is buried somewhere in the garage)

Holy cow, I'd be gassed after taking just those leads up from the bottom, let alone a fish as well.

Thems is beauties. What size are they?

1lb to 2lb's, there are some lighter ones in there

But this is my Charter kit for much deeper and faster flowing water. My other lead box has smaller leads and is what I take on my RIB.

You can also tie a Spongy Bungee to the top so that you can wash the guts off your mits.

Spongy Bungee, the biggest waste of money ever.
£12 for a sponge on some string.
Your as bad as Carp anglers.😉😂

You don't buy one! Make one with a piece of bungee left over from an old boat cover and a 50p sponge. Does the job nicely for a season.

My advice is keep it simple,don't take extras you won't need.....just for the type of fishing/species you are targeting...A good Toweling cloth for wiping your hands is a must,unless you like scales and blood/guts all over your Boat! As is a Priest....if Bass fishing a de scaler is much easier/cleaner to use while at sea...make up any traces/end tackle at home,and remove ALL kit AND ancillarys from the Boat for a clean/wash down after use,if you don't want it to let you down next time.
Not a fan of tackle box's (tend to fly about too much!) on a RIB I use an army rucksack with lots of designated pockets,easy to locate what you need..and if it's Knarley or Wet stuff it into a Dry Bag.
A decent fish bag which can be left wet is a help too/I do use a cold bag/box for Mackies especially if the kids are aboard...or if it's a full days trip out.
Hope this helps
