Unboxing Lucky Tackle Box - November 2015

In a recent conversation with my good friend and business partner Mark Watanabe, we decided that we would subscribe to a couple of monthly subscription boxes to see if they are worth the money. After doing a quick Google search, which revealed hundreds of options, we each picked one to try out for three months.

As you can see in his article titled "Unboxing BattleBox Mission 1 - Is It Worth It?", Mark choose the "BattleBox". I was looking to stay a bit more fishing specific, so I went with the "Lucky Tackle Box". I opted for the three-month subscription, which brought the monthly box total down to $14.50 per box.

According to Lucky Tackle Box, the box's total value is $29. As you can see in the unboxing video below, the box came with five items. Below the video, I'll post pics and links to the items to see if the box was truly worth its claimed value.

 

 

Here are the items that came in the box. Since it was a bit difficult to find one store that carried all the items, I decided to do a quick Google search for each and select the lowest price from a reputable store.

Mustad Big Mouth Tube Hook

Mustad 4/0 "Big Mouth Tube Hook" - Tackle Warehouse 5 Pack $3.49

Yum Wooley Bee

Yum F2 "Wooly-Bee" Bait - Walmart $8.35

Road runner "Randy's Bass Buffet Rig" - Academy $5.99

Snag Proof Bass Grabber Jig

Snag Proof "Bass Grabber Double Hook Jig" - Amazon $13.81

Bone Head Tackle 7" Ring Worm

Bone Head Tackle "7" Ring Worm" - Bone Head Tackle $4.49

Adding up the prices listed above, the box total comes out to be $36.13, so it was absolutely less expensive to purchase the Lucky Tackle Box than to buy theese items individually. Now the real question is, "Is the box really worth it?" For me the jury is still out. We'll see what comes in the next two boxes, and I'll draw a conclusion from there.

Stayed tuned to YakAngler.com and our YouTube channel for more unboxing videos and other kayak fishing related videos.

Until next time, cheers!

My question is do I want any of those items? Would I buy them, even if I had a gift card? Do they fit the type of fishing I do?

To me many of those things would just sit on my work bench. They are not things I need or want. Not a good buy.

I hear ya. As I mentioned at the end of my article, for me the jury is still out. There are a few items that I would certainly use and a couple that I probably would not.

I've used similar items to the Bass Buffet and had lots of success so I could see me purchasing that. The hooks I would buy and use, and the worms I would probably use. The jig and the wooley-bee's I probably would not have bought. So, After 3-months I'll make a more informed opinion if I like the box or not.

I guess ultimately this article is serving its purpose. If you don't feel that the box is worth it, then perfect, I just saved you and anyone else that may have considered purchasing a few dollars.
