Hows The Bait Monkey Treating Everyone

Recommended Posts

I keep getting it bad I just did a 12mo subscription to MTB! so that will be nice iv heard so many great things bout them I did the 12 mo plan. I also just picked up a Stradic Ci4 and the revo premier spinning and veritas last week. Yesterday I bought some mini umbrella rigs and 12 packs of various tungsten bullet sinkers and a new spinner bait box and line spooling station. I have also picked up several packages of rage tail thumpers a few days ago. Tomorrow I plan on placing a big order for Siebert jigs and some Northstar then over to get some moaner hooks and more rage baits.

Upgraded Sol, Purple Alphas 103L, custom RX-7 Rainshadow, 2 Quantum Tour Edition Pt, Quantum Superlite PT, swimbait jigs, Carbontex drags for 3 Abu round reels, one set of Orange Seal bearings for one of the previously mentioned Abus, Wiha screwdriver kit for reels, grips for daughter's reel, Morrum 1600C and a macro lens for my SLR Digital camera so I can take pictures as I tear apart my first reel.  I think that is it for the past month....so far.  Need some Cal's grease and a couple other items for working on my reels.

 

EDIT:  Getting a bit antsy to hit the water, but don't feel like freezing my you-know-what off.  :(

 

Oh yeah, need tungsten weights and some paddle tails minimum.

Nice pick up.  I did mine earlier (picking up two new reels - BPS Extreme and Prolite), bought some various soft baits and crankbaits.  I've also purchased a new tackle bag, KVD L&L, 12# test Yo Zuri.  I am itching to buy a new crankbait rod and new reel (want another Curado50e), but my wife is telling no more!  lol  So I am trying to sell some of my extra equipment to pay for them.

Itss not the baitmonkey. Its his aggravating cousin the "b.o.a.t. monkey" just spent 768. To repair boat. Needless to say, i dont have any bait monkey funds. I did buy some Sniper line. I dont need any. But it was buy one get one at the local store.

I will say i have seen a bunch of great deals on theFlea market in the past few days that i would have jumped on just for the sake of seizing a deal.

And that is killing me...it only happens when funds are depleted.

Im lucking out I hd a big tax return this year so I paid off all my bills and set some aside and still have quite a bit left over so I'm treating my self and my boys they keep getting spoiled as well to the things my ex wife has been saying no to over the last 5 years its kinda nice feeling to be out of debt(all but my truck payment) all 3 of my bank accounts are in the ++++ and my tackle bin is over flowing as so is my hunting gear I'm taking the new bow to the shop tonight to get tuned and set up. It would have been much better if she didn't blow all my money but Iv recouped pretty well. Few more rods to update my old walmart and BPS low budget stuff and some jigs and rage tail baits and I will be all set oh and maybe 1 more bait caster.

Mine is starting to stir. My water heater died today and while we had to clean up the room where we have it, we had to remove my fishing equipment and I looked over old reels and rods that I have not used for years and then I remembered the Spring classic is underway and and they have reel trades and rod trades coming up. Hmmmm.... I am thinking a sweet chronarch and a nice rod.... once the monkey starts stirring I can't control him.

He has put a whoopin on me this winter thanks to the BTD sales. 2 NRX's and a Core 50 and I think I might be done with rods and reels for a little while. Have also been pimping out some reels; that gets expensive really quickly. I haven't even started restocking on tackle yet. Yet.......

The Bait Monkey and I sat down earlier while composing a list for our over the winter purchases. That way we both are satisfied by winters end, so far we are on target and we are both very happy.

After reading the post about your boy, you better not take him with. You'll be buying him a bow and a kayak too, to match yours.

He already has a bow he got for Christmas he asks every day when we are gonna go shoot bucks like seriously every day. Now the kayak that may pose a problem but he will just have to learn lol. He just cleaned his first rifle also he kept saying his .22 was dirty so I got out my stuff and taught him how to clean it!

Since the ice has formed I've picked up an Avid 68mxf, Revo S, and Lews Super Duty for bigger purchase items. Other than that it's been all re-stocking essentials like terminal tackle, plastics, cranks, line, etc... I've dropped about a grand in the past 3 months and hopefully only have another 500 to go until i'm "set".

My wife looks at me funny when I talk to myself.  :laugh5:  She thinks I am talking to her and then she sees the pen and paper.   :sign13:

Then she realizes I'm making lists of baits to buy or to research!

Does the bait monkey look anything like a sock monkey? I have stocked up with this years expected needs and spent about a hundred and fifty bucks. I have resolved to fish what I have and I have too much already.  If they only made a patch.

If they did have a patch, i would hope that if works better than the nicotein patch. Hundreds of patches and im still at a pack of "cowboy killers" a day.

The ole bait monkey bombarded me with Megabass grenades and Shimano missiles past couple of months, but I think I have the perimeter covered now. I’ve reinforced the concertina and laid out a few more daisy chains and if he gets through that I’ve got some close air on standby.



Now, you were saying something about normal people...
