When I was a young kid many years ago Mepps Lures Company each year would put about six of their best spinners in a cool little box with lots of pictures of giant trout and pike caught on their spinners with those pictures plastered all around the box. I gotta say it would get me all excited and pumped up looking at all the pictures on the box. Then, looking at the spinners inside, I couldn’t wait to get to the lake and fish the spinners. There was a feeling of excitement that was hard to describe.
That’s the exact feeling I got when I received my Mystery Tackle Box in the mail. I was very excited to open the box and see what baits were inside and look at the lures and could not wait to try them out.

Mystery Tackle Box is a monthly subscription service that introduces anglers to quality new lures and techniques for just $15 a month. Not only do customers receive cutting edge tackle at an incredible value, but you also experience the excitement of receiving a package every month.
The Mystery Tackle I received had five awesome lures and baits inside starting with a WackOJig which is a revolutionary jig head that will change the way you fish a “wacky” rig. Along with the WackOjig were some 5″ Sick Stick wacky worms, that were perfect for the jig head. I also received a cool Strike King football head jig for going after the big girls, along with a Raptor Tail Chunk to put on my jig as a trailer. Last but not least was a Chatter Frog Micro which I was very impressed with.
The best part of the Mystery Tackle Box is the cool cards that come inside the box that briefly describe the lure, or bait, and have a link to a webpage where you can learn more about the bait along with a video review and demonstration.
If your new to the sport of bass fishing, or have been in the sport for years, I really think you’ll enjoy the Mystery Tackle Box. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve said “I should have bought that lure,” and didn’t. Now, I have a chance to get one each month as well as some great how-to use information on techniques and a full lure description.
Pros: How can you go wrong getting well over $20 of lures for $15 and how-to info that will help your fishing game immensely.
Cons: Found none, great idea!
