Best Tackle Box on Wheels

A good tackle box is crucial for any fishing trip.   Whether its a backpack, a soft tackle box or a tacklebox on wheels you need a quality box to carry your best lures. 

We’ve scoured the web — and deleted 90% of our list to narrow down the two best rolling tackle boxes on the market based on versatility, usability and reviews!

1. Elkton Outdoors Rolling Tackle Box

  • L 15.7 x W 9.6 x H 18.5 inches / 11 pounds/
  • Waterproof /
  • 5 Removable Tackle Trays /
  • 4 Rod Holders/Rolling Fishing Tackle Bag/Roller Tackle Box

Elkton Rolling Tackle BoxA rolling tackle box can come in handy when you’ve got a large amount of tackle. By grabbing the handle and pulling it around, you prevent the back pain that’s associated with lifting a heavy box a few times per day.

This Elkton huge, as it can hold up to 18 trays of various sizes, of which 5 especially large ones in the front. On the inside, there are 3 separated slots where the remaining 13 tackle trays can go. These slots can be adjusted according to your personal liking. The rolling box is fully waterproof and made with a durable fabric.

Even though this is a rolling bag, you can wear it as a backpack tackle box as well, as well. Besides the compartments for all sorts of fishing tackle trays, it’s also got 4 rod holders. This is pretty much a complete fishing solution since none of your equipment will be left out.

In fact, it offers room for up to 26.5 lbs. of fishing gear, which is no small thing. If you don’t have any use for all those rod holders, you can simply remove their tubes and use the resulting pocket space. This is one of the best rolling tackle boxes out there, and it’s constantly picking more ground among fishermen, both rookies and pros.  It’s definitely worth considering if you’re shopping on a budget.

Pros Cons
  • Provides a ton of storage space
  • Made of durable material
  • Can be used as a backpack
  • Rod holders
  • Waterproof
  • Fairly affordable for the quality
  • Solid zippers
  • It can get quite heavy if packed fully

2. Okuma Nomad Travel Series Tackle Rolling Deck Bag

Nomad Tackle RollerThis Nomad rolling tackle box is your alternative to the Elkton. This, too, can hold up to 4 tackle boxes and 4 rods. This bag has two sizeable side pockets to carry your ice fishing tackle.  I consider this my favorite bag for ice fishing because of the rollers and the rod holders.

  • High Grade 600 denier rip stop polyester with PVC coating
  • Sturdy easy operation retractable hangle
  • High quality molded composite zippers are extremely strong and corrosion resistant
  • Comes with (3) 3700 tackle trays and (1) deep 3730 tackle tray
  • 17.25″ x 17.75″ x 9″

  The top storage compartment is endowed with adjustable dividers, so you can shrink or enlarge it however you like. The PVC tubes that would hold the fishing rods can be removed in order to get more storage space on the sides. All the zippers are made with high-quality composite and are treated in order to be resistant to corrosion. When it comes to the trays in the front compartment (they’re included, by the way), they are pretty large.

The top one is a 3730-size tray and the remaining, bottom 3 ones are 3700 each. These offer a very large amount of space.

One minor inconvenience about this particular tackle roller is that the handle is surprisingly short. Don’t get us wrong: it doesn’t affect the overall functionality of the roller, it’s just that tall people will have to bend over to be able to grab the handle. You’re probably wondering why we’ve chosen this to be the runner-up instead of the winner. The answer is simple: it is quite expensive. If you’ve got a nice budget and you want to purchase a high-quality tackle roller, however, please be our guest. You definitely won’t regret the buy. In the case in which you find this too expensive, you can go with the slightly better Elkton.  

Pros Cons
  • It is very well-made
  • Plenty of storage room
  • 4 rod holders
  • Huge side pockets
  • 4 trays included
  • The wheels work like a charm
  • We, as well as other customers, wished the handle were longer
  • More expensive than most similar tackle rollers
