Actor John Ratzenberger Launches FishingGiftBox.com

(Las Vegas, NV – May 26, 2017): Actor John Ratzenberger and entrepreneur David Polinsky continue to expand their online shopping portal The GiftBox.com with the addition of the Fishing Gift Box.

The Fishing Gift Box includes a monthly collection of the best lures, spinners, jigs, soft plastics and terminal tackle on the market, delivered anywhere in the continental United States. Both salt water and fresh water boxes are available with a recipe created by renowned chefs nationwide.

“I’ve been fishing my whole life and I’m still amazed at how advanced the tackle has become. I wanted to help my fellow fishing enthusiasts and take the guess work out of what to pack in your tackle box,” says Ratzenberger.

The subscription price for the Fishing Gift Box starts at $19.99 and lives on TheGiftBox.com platform. Based on a proprietary technology platform, TheGiftBox.com is unique to any other subscription box service by offering a choice of multiple categories all on one site. Subscribers have the flexibility to change, pause or cancel their membership at any time. There’s one monthly flat fee, no yearly upfront payments, every purchase ships free and earns rewards points towards free boxes.

So Dan was kind enough to have a fishing gift box sent to me and I must say it was pretty cool!

Some cool stuff in there!

So, they claim that the box is valued at around 50 bucks and I would say that’s pretty close. Some of you sticklers might price items out more advantageously but just looking it over and comparing to items off the shelf at a big box store, I’m OK with their declared value. If you choose the most expensive plan option, a one-time purchase, it costs you $29.99 and Im pretty sure you get that, at least.

It’s cool that they include a list and a description of each item.

The folks at The Fishing Gift Box claim on their website you will receive lures, soft plastics, jigs & spinners, terminal tackle (hooks and swivels, etc.) and recipes. That’s what I received so they delivered as advertised.

Honestly, I love the recipe card. I’m pretty good at catching fish, but woefully not creative when it comes to cooking fish. A recipe card is a pretty nice addition!

Overall, I’d say this is a pretty cool idea. It might make for a pretty neat gift too! Personally I think it would be fun to have a surprise every month but some folks might be concerned in receiving products they won’t use. It’s a great option to be able to choose freshwater or saltwater as well. For a 12-month plan it will cost you $19.99 per month. To go month-to-month it will cost you $25.99

This fishing gift box didn’t have any junk in it, it was fun to receive and open, and I think the price is fair. It gets the Desert Rat Seal of Approval!
