Fishing is a hobby that tends to consume people day and night. If you aren’t actively fishing, you probably think about fishing, planning your next trip, or organizing your gear. And, as any experienced enthusiast knows, fishing is a hobby that requires a lot of equipment.
With that in mind, using a shed as a fishing tackle room is an idea you might want to consider. Having a dedicated space to store your equipment and get it ready for each new adventure is a beautiful luxury to have available. So let’s use this article to discuss how you can bring this concept to life!
Of course, you can’t turn a shed into a fishing tackle room until you have a shed on your property. But, with the help of Carport Kingdom, you can quickly bring that project to life!

Clear the Space
If you are making a fishing tackle room out of an existing shed, you’ll first want to get everything out of the space and ensure it is nice and clean. Trying to start this project in a shed already cluttered with some other stuff will only create headaches. However, decluttering won’t be an issue if you order a new shed from Carport Kingdom for this project. In that case, your primary concern will be the design of the shed, starting with the size of its footprint. Next, figure out how much space you have available on your property to use for a shed. Remember that you’ll need some space to walk around it. Additionally, you must consider any setback limitations and code restrictions.
Make a Master List
Knowing precisely what you want to put in your fishing tackle room before adding things to the shed will be helpful. While this list will vary from person to person, here are some likely items to include.
Your shed will need a rack to hold all of the poles in an orderly manner. Placing this rack against the shed’s back wall is likely your best bet since that will keep it out of the way and limit the risk of damage.
You probably have plenty of tackle and various baits for your preferred fishing methods. Adding a shelving unit to the shed will make it easy to stack up boxes without creating a big mess.
Nets, life jackets, etc.
Along with poles and tackle, the many other accessories that come with fishing must also be stored here. You might do well with a couple of large plastic bins or totes with lids to successfully contain the sprawl of these items.
As you move into the space, go slow and be intentional about what goes where and why. Resist the temptation to push everything into the shed and shut the door behind you – that will make it far more difficult to find things when you need them, and you won’t get as much use out of the space in the end.
Consider a Table and Chair
While not essential for a tackle room, you might consider adding a small table and a chair to this space. A quiet place to sit would be handy for anyone who ties flies or prepares bait. Having a dedicated area for that work while surrounded by everything you need is a nice bonus and may make your experience in fishing more enjoyable.
