Brandyn Stoker:
Welcome back everybody. Brandyn Stoker here on behalf of Monster Bass. In today's episode, guys, I want to talk to you about keeping rust out of your tackle box. When I first started fishing, guys, I really didn't care about preventing rust in the tackle box at all. Before you know it, at the end of the season, I had lures that were just caked in rust. A lot of them I ended up having to throw away and that's a lot of money wasted by the way. Then my tackle trays, I actually ended up spending all this time cleaning them, ended up throwing them into a dishwasher just to get them clean and get all that rust out of them, but if you don't keep rust out of your tackle box, it can spread like crazy. It can ruin a lot of lures and lures are not cheap as you guys know. If you're going to let it ruin all your lures, you're going to be spending a lot more money.

Brandyn Stoker:
That leads me into my first tip, guys, and this is probably the easiest thing that you can do. That is going to be, after you're done using a lure, let's say you're tossing around a frog, I've got a box full of frogs here, and you're tossing around the frog and that thing's just caked in water and everything. The best thing that you guys can do is actually take that lure, whatever you were tossing around, and just leave it out, either on the deck of your boat, build a little rack where you can kind of hang the lure to dry out, or if you're not on a boat, just find a way to let that lure dry out.

Brandyn Stoker:
If you can let that lure dry out without putting it back into the tackle box or tackle tray and getting that moisture in the box because that's part of the problem, too. You throw it back into the box and all that moisture gets locked into the box. It starts to spread around and get onto other lures. Even if you put it in its own little slot, there's still moisture in the box. Then in a little bit of humidity and it just spreads like crazy. If you can let that lure dry out somewhere, that's going to be an absolutely huge, simple thing that you can do to keep rust out of your box.

Brandyn Stoker:
Well, the next thing that you guys can do is these Flambeau boxes have these blue slots inside of them and these are really good. They're supposedly for rust prevention. I've used them a little bit. This is just one of my jig boxes and these little individual slots here are meant to prevent rust. If you guys are looking into some boxes, these Flambeau boxes, that's what they do. Apparently they block out rust.

Brandyn Stoker:
This was my first year using them and this tray has no rust in it whatsoever using these trays here. If you guys are looking into tackle trays, I don't know what other companies do this as well for tackle trays, but I would suggest maybe looking into a tackle tray that specifically has these individual sliders or slots in there that help prevent rust. Anything you can do to prevent rust is huge. These things are fairly cheap as well. When I'd seen him I was like, "Might as well pick some up." So far they're working pretty good, so I mean you don't have to go with Flambeau, but I would suggest if there's a company or a box that has these in there that can prevent rust, you might as well pick them up.

Brandyn Stoker:
The last tip that I have for you guys for keeping out rust is these rust blocker strips. I just bought these off of Amazon, guys. These are Bull Frog Rust Blocker Strips and what they do is they basically have an adhesive on the back. All I do is I just pull off that little sticker deal and I put it right inside my tackle tray. This is kind of like a sponge deal. What it does is it absorbs all that moisture so that the rust or that moisture doesn't get on anything else. It'll soak it all up.

Brandyn Stoker:
This is a tip that I actually learned on YouTube myself from a pro. I can't remember what his name was, but he was a pro bass fisherman. This is stuff that he uses in his boats. These are strips that he uses in his tackle trays and in his boat. You can buy really big ones as well and he sticks them on the inside of his compartments. I've never done that, but I have bought these little Bull Frog strips, put them on the back of my tackle trays, and they have helped substantially, guys. I would highly recommend those. I would highly recommend getting those strips. They slide right on. They're super easy. You can pull them right off, put new ones on every year if you want, and they're fairly cheap as well.

Brandyn Stoker:
Those are my tips for you guys. That's just a few different ways. If you guys have some tips for keeping rust out of your tackle box that I didn't mention here, go ahead. Drop it down in the comments below. Share the knowledge with us, but like I said, those are my three ways, guys. I think if you just combine those three things right there, you'll have no problem keeping rust out of your tackle box. Like I said, let the lure dry out. That's probably the most important and easiest way to keep it out, is just letting those lures dry out. Look for those boxes that have rust prevention in them, and also those Bull Frog strips, guys. Those work really, really good for keeping rust off there, especially if it's really rainy out and you kind of just start throwing your lures back in because you have to. Those rust strips are really going to help out with soaking up that moisture in those boxes. I hope you guys enjoyed today's episode. Give it a big thumbs up if you did and we will see you guys on the next one.
