GENESIS OF THE SPOONCRANK BOX
Started fishing perch with my grandfather when I was six. Had to fish by his rules; Bait my own hook, take the fish off my hook, go when he was going and return when he decided that it was time. During the summer we went fishing almost every evening at Pool Pond in Ringe, New Hampshire. In the picture is my grandfather, my older brother, cousin and me. Also, you can see the 18 foot row boat that we used. This great experience established my love of fishing.
Over time I acquired more fishing tackle and must have tried every fishing tackle box invented by man. Started with a tin box for hooks and sinkers moved on to plastic tackle boxes by Plano and Flambeau. Later I switched to fishing tackle utility boxes, satchels and tackle bags. At one point bigger was better like the Special Mate boxes until I realized that I was using the same lures over and over to catch all my fish. That coupled with the fact that my boat got smaller when my two fishing buddies were on board and we found ourselves tripping over the First Mate boxes.
It got bad enough that I started to look for a better solution. I couldn’t find a commercial solution that fit my needs so I decided to make my own. I picked a size that was big enough to hold all my go-to fish catching lures but small enough to store and access easily. I live on Grand Island, NY and am fortunate to be able to conveniently fish trout and salmon on Lake Ontario and walleye and bass on Lake Erie. Needing a combination of spoons and stickbaits lead me to design a fishing tackle storage system that easily accommodate both lure types. Hence, the insertable partitions which allow me to customized the box to my needs now and in the future.
When you buy a SpoonCrank Box you are buying the convenience of having all your go-to fishing lures and terminal tackle equipment organized in one easy to store package. You do not need separate boxes for spoons and stickbaits.
15% of my customers buy two SpoonCrank Boxes. They are split between wanting more storage capacity with easier boat storage or customizing each box to a particular fish species. They have set up boxes for spring brown trout, trout & salmon and walleye. Just grab the box that fits your planed day of fishing and go.
Hope you like my concept and get to enjoy the convenience of this unique tackle storage system.
