Walmart New Jack City!!!!

Recommended Posts

Man I got a hellova deal x3 today.

Stopped off at Walmart today to pick me up a rod. They got a new shipment in yesterday and called to say they had more of the 7' MH Berkley Lighting Shock rods in stock. I know the manager at the sporting goods counter from several previous trips. He called my cell and said they were in and on the shelf.

Found the rod and decided to shop around some more. I have been wanting to try drop shoting and need a good spinning rod but dont want to break the bank. I'm really fond of the Abu spinning rods. They had three Cardinal 400I combos. 6'6" medium with split grip and balanced perfect. No tags on them. There were 3 left in the corner. Asked the manager and he came back 10 minutes later and said how bout 25 bucks???? Needless to say I snaged that bugger up. Came home to find them online for 60 bucks. They have two more and Im half tempted to get another one.

It gets better!

Last year I wanted a 6' medium rod for fishing top water around the fishing docks. I found a good deal on a Agu Garcia Conolon Premier at Walmart for 25 bucks. I love that rod. Cork grip, hook keeper on the top of the rod, fat back bone that I like and great fast tip. Well they had 3 more in the same corner as the combo above I got. No tags on them. Manager said for you since your getting a few things and will be back.................5 bucks!!! Only had one 7' MH or I would have bought every single one. This is a very stiff rod. I have beat the crap outta my 6' Conolon and its about as tuff as my ugly stick. I have hoisted 4 and 5 pound hybrid bass off the water to the dock and no issues. This is going to be my frog rod.

And its gets even better.

Normal price on the Shock rods are 39.99. While we were ringing eveything up, he (not me) noticed a small about 1/4" piece of cork was buggered on the grip. He told me to get another. Dammit if it wasnt the only 7" MH they had left. He said no worries and knocked off 20 bucks!!!

I walked out of there with a package of ribbit frogs, two spools of 832 braid, 2 rods and one combo for 70 bucks and change. Man it was a good day!!

I've had several Conolon rods and they've all been excellent . Back in 1977 my son found a broken

Garcia 5 Star Conolon 7' rod on the side of the road in Austin. The front half looked as if a car had run over it and smashed it. I wrote Garcia (no internet then :eyebrows: ) explaning that he had found the rod and asked them what the front half would cost. A short time later a very long round box came in the mail and there was a brand new 5 star rod inside...........no charge! May not get that service nowdays but their CS was great back then.

Buddy of mine gets crazy deals at Wal Mart all the time. Awhile back he got about a dozen super spook jr's for .50 apiece and some war eagle finesse spinnerbaits for $1 apiece. He's always finding great deals on soft plastics. I can't ever find any good deals on anything I really need there.

Local Walmart I shop at has very little in the line of fishing gear. Seldom is anything on sale. I did get lucky a couple years ago. They were closing out some Berkley rods. All were damaged in one way or another except for a 6' MH Lightning B/C rod. I snatched it up at the $17 price for my grandson.

Yup, you had a great day. I'll have to swing by the Walmart that is out a bit further, and see if I can find any deals like that. Doubt it with my luck. :(
