Orders over $150 are shipped FREE!* Orders less than $150 are billed for shipping. Upon placing your order you'll receive an immediate confirmation via email. You are not billed at that time, the confirming email may not reflect oversize or overweight charges or other issues requiring direct contact. We process orders manually, preferring to have a human actually check things over and contact you should there be questions. Within 24 hours of placing your order you will receive a follow-up email confirmation and final  invoice (pdf doc) reflecting your total charges (Monday-Friday). You are not billed until we actually send you your final invoice.  Orders shipped to CA addresses will have California Sales Taxes applied, out of state orders are tax free. During the ordering process you can select expedited shipping if required. The Free Shipping offer applies to ONE standard size/weight box going to ONE address. Orders requiring more than one box will have additional shipping fees for the second box. (Within the USA we usually ship via Federal Express ground. International, and oversize/weight items will be billed for shipping and you will be sent an emailed invoice reflecting total charges prior to actual billing. We will not ship without you having had a chance to review the invoice). Hawaii and Alaska shipping will be accomplished using USPS Priority service, and our standard shipping cost policy will apply unless the item ordered does not fit in their standard size boxes. If additional shipping fees are required we will contact you.)

 

SKB

Remember the good old wooden tackle boxes.  They were great, just impractical, and awfully expensive.  Then along came Mark Pack with their soft-sided component style bags.  They introduced a different style of tackle box to fishermen. But, many of us wanted the extra protection a hard case offers. You can fly with these checked into baggage, I'd not do that with a soft case.  Back in 2000 SKB introduced their hard case, and I was probably the first guy with 'em. The owners son dropped by my barn/warehouse before I had our retail shop opened the following year.  I was impressed, as were our most serious clients. SKB combined some of the best aspects of both styles of tackle storage - hard and soft pack. SKB has produced an excellent tackle box. I think it's the definitive hard case.  

Please note, our special sale prices are not shown until you add your selected SKB item to your shopping cart.

skbnew1.jpg (544980 bytes)If you've ever wielded an ax...make that guitar, you probably have heard of SKB. They make some of the finest hard cases around.  Well, as so often happens in this business, the owner of the firm is a fisherman.  In fact, he recently picked up a nice little 50'+ Viking as I hear it.  The guy wanted a tackle box, not a tackle bag. So, he built one, a really good one.  No matter how good a Mark Pack Hippo or Long Ranger are there really are times a hard case can be a plus. Sure, weight favors the soft case, but the hard case's weakness of high weight lends to it's incredible strength.  For instance, there have been times I've used my own SKB at the warehouse as my step ladder...and I go in over 200 lbs. these days. It's a better tackle box, but it's a secure step too with the rubber feet and indestructible rotationally molded construction.  

Let's just quickly go over some of the features: rotationally molded construction, top lid opens 90-180 degrees for easy access to a storage compartment behind a clear acrylic door, four Plano 3700 boxes, high quality stainless steel hardware, hanging jig area and travel cover to keep 'em in place on the airlines...(handles up to 40 jigs), padded removable shoulder strap, two outside box pockets (great for glasses or sunscreen), and there's obvious  attention to detail demonstrated in the fit and finish of these serious tackle storage devices. Oh, I almost forgot, there's also a lifetime SKB warranty on the box, too!

For 2003/4 SKB made a change in the big box.  It now can accommodate rocket launchers!  Just like their 7100 and 7200, you can bolt on rod holders!

Shipping will not be free on SKB tackle boxes, sorry. We apply a discount to your shipping for these oversized tackle boxes. Shipping costs will be added to your order at $20.00 for USA shipping, Alaska and Hawaii will be higher and we'll notify you of charges prior to billing.

SKBsm3.jpg (120997 bytes)SKB Does It Again

Like the full size model, their new slightly smaller Jr. is another great product.  Excellent strength, at about half the weight of the bigger box (the new one's 10#). They also added a nice feature that might just make this the perfect tackle box for you.

The new smaller SKB uses the smaller size 3600 Plano boxes, still retains the lure compartment on top, jig holder with bottom hole....  Instead of the side pockets, the smaller box features four rod holders!  Now that's a great idea.  Just put the box on a small airline carrier, load on your rods to the box, and start rolling down to the boat.  Life's getting too darn easy these days.

THEY'RE BACK! After being off the market for several years the little SKB Mini has been brought back by popular demand (heck I recently saw one sold on ebay for OVER $400 - a truly stupid price, but some dummy paid it). They are more expensive than 5 years ago, but they're a great product and we're very happy to see 'em return.

SKB Mini

skbmini2model.jpg (88507 bytes)Well, there are times when taking things down a notch or two is in order.  The new small box from SKB hits the nail on the head for one to three day trips for many anglers.  It holds three Plano 3600 size boxes, has top storage, and you can even enhance the box by adding the optional rocket launchers.   

Please note, our special sale prices are not shown until you add your selected SKB item to your shopping cart.

SKB Rod CaseSKBrodcase.jpg (120766 bytes)

SKB just did it again.  They've produced the definitive rod case.  It can hold seven rods of seven foot length.  It's the strongest rod case I've even seen, made from the same tough material as SKB's great tackle boxes.  They have a unique construction that affords excellent security from crushing blows that would pulverize most other glorified rod tubes.  These things are hard to photograph, but they are excellent.

 Shipping within continental USA is included with this item.

SKB Back Pack

SKB also produces a very nice soft pack tackle back pack. There are not too many of these on the market today, and that's unfortunate because they are very useful things. Having free hands is a good thing when you're loaded down with gear trying to get to the boat. A backpack style tackle bag done right is very useful...and SKB made an excellent little backpack. It has room for 5 Plano 3600 size boxes, and it comes with a lunch cooler which can fit into the case replacing two of the boxes. There are plenty of pockets, even one for your glasses. (These are only available in black)
