Some awesome looking wood went into that box. Did you make all the dividers too?

That is an awesome box!
Is someone actually going to take that out on a boat/pier and get it dirty?

I was ten years old when I saw my first muskellunge, a.k.a. muskie, which had been caught by a close friend of my Dad’s. It was caught on a baby duck lure and scared the living daylights out of me when he got it in the boat because it was over 25 pounds and looked like an alligator. (This was when I was living in Minnesota.)

Lord Amighty if that isn’t the coolest looking tackle box I have ever laid eyes on. Wood choice is through the roof. Now are you really gonna drag that thing out in a boat?

Please state the dimensions. I know Musky lures are pretty big, and that looks more like a foot chest than a tackle box closed, but I’m not sure of how big, not that it matters that much.

OldNovice, I love that story. I was around 14, but it was hanging on a stringer, and already dead. It was 48” long, and weighed 52 pounds. It was scary dead. Just can’t imagine a live one in the boat with me, I’d be a dancin, and generally I am not a chicken.

Mighty fine looking musky box. If I could only get them all to fit in there. You always need another musky lure.

That’s beautiful. It drew me to want to look inside to see fine crafted lures.
