Do you remember the first bait you ever bought ?

Yup. It was a long long time ago. Actually, it was more like 2 or 3 months. My little brother set me up with some of his extra stuff to get me started but the first I ever bought was a 1/4 ounce Mepps Aglia Inline Spinner. Got it snagged after 3 casts and lost it. After that I picked up a Scum Frog Popper and a couple Bandit crankbaits.

I bought 3 Heddon top water lures with money I received for my 6th birthday. Crazy Crawler, Meadow Mouse and a Tiny Torpedo. The mouse had a metal lip and a leather tail and it drove the farm pond bass crazy. I still have the crawler 37 years later.

I wish I could remember what I did yesterday as opposed to remembering what was the first bait I purchased.

I do remember some important "first purchases" in my life but not any bait or lure.

Am I old or what?????

Bluebasser, don't tell anyone but I still use that Creme bait and will be using it in a tournament next weekend.

My first was an L&S jointed lure that looked like a bullhead. Never caught a fish with it.

Heddon Lucky 13, red head shiner pattern. Bought it around the early 1960's to go along with my Pflueger "SilKast" knuckle buster. Still have the Silkast and a tubular steel rod it is on. :)

The first lure I ever bought, was a Hula Popper, and the first plastic I ever purchased, was a bag of white Slug-O's. I was 7 or 8 years old, and that popper caught me my first big fish (probably 4-5lbs), but hooked me for life on the thrill of bass fishing, especially topwater.

I wish I remembered what my first bait was. I think when I got back into fishing some of the first baits I bought were senko style worms.

I'm in the same boat. I could name five or six and maybe it was one of them and maybe it wasn't. If I had to bet on it, I'd say an original #7 Rapala. Black back, silver body. I remember saving two months worth of allowance to buy it.

I do not remember the first bait I bought when I was a kid and just started fishing, but I do remember what I bought first 8-10 years ago when I got back into fishing after a long break from the late 90's till then. A pack of 4" Senko's.
