Hit The Jackpot At Walmart Again!

Recommended Posts

A few moths ago i got some great deals at my local walmart, and just yesterday i went to a different walmart and found 6 creates of heddon and rebel lures for 97 cents each! i got loads of pop-rs,crankbaits, frog-r's, spooks, moss bosses, etc. Like a kid in a candy store.

They don't look bad. the ones I got were white/chart with a single Colorado blade. Haven't used them yet though

I got three separate lures outta that dollar box. One was a Rebel crankbait and that thing sucks. Runs sideways, doesn't wobble right. I tried fixing the eyelet but nothing worked.

Doesn't give me a whole lotta confidence in that Rebel brand. But for a buck each you're not losing much except space in your tackle box.

I never did like those rebel baits. The heddon Zara puppys are pond killers and I can't wait to pick up some bomber spinners. Those yum have been a buck forever

Not all lures run the same we do need to check them closely to tune them. There can be little flaws in them

this is why out of 4 or 5 cranks being the exact same models one or two if your lucky will catch fish.

 

Rebel lures are good stuff.

You woulda fainted if you saw the three crates of heddon spooks at the san jose WM last weekend when I went back they only had a few in black/chart.

What kind of crank? the craw cranks? I never had a problem with any rebel but you check out the Pop-rs and jumpin minnows that is what rebel does TOP WATER

The moss boss you got is my secret weapon!! It is a weedless spoon and it out fishes frogs by a mile over pads, frogs seem better over matts but over pads the moss boss is a killer lure.

Figures I picked the wrong Walmart! I went to the one on Phillips and I didn't see anything. I figured the one on Phillips would have better selection than San Jose but I was wrong

The phillips one they are at the end cap, right next to the zoom bags. you will see the lures hanging.

 

I missed that box sale and only had limited selection to begin with.

I found this out when I bough 5 Red eye shad only 2 ran well and they caught fish the other 3 veer off to the sides.

I did pick up a Vendetta Rod for 29 bucks. Not a complete dissappointment

I haven't had much luck with cranks out of the dollar box at Walmart.  It seems like they are factory seconds, they have some defect somewhere.  I have found them, Rebels and Cordells especially, to be hard to tune and most of them won't stay tuned very long.   I've found the Walmart dollar box to be more trouble than it is worth.

 

On a positive note, I have found the Moss Boss to be a good bait.

I completely agree with this. Just by the split rings and hooks you can tell they are factory seconds or worse.

 

Check to see where they were manufactured. I think they come from factories overseas.

 

Dick's Sporting Goods does the same thing. I'd be leery of these, even if they are about a dollar.

none of the walmarts i check ever have a 97 cents sale for anything. they all just have discounted sections of stuff, but never 97 cents. this includes four walmarts in my area, and 3 on the way to smith mtn lake...

I grabbed some of the bone colored spooks for saltwater.  for $1, hard to beat them, even if they do rust out in a week.

A few months ago my Walmart had Cordell Super Spots for $1.20 if I remember right.  I had the clerk behind the counter check the price to make sure it was correct, then I bought three of them.

Just hit up my walmart again today for the $1 bin, bought the rest of the spooks in bone and a couple in clear. They still have a bunch of clear ones. Bought some more of the poppers too and grabbed a couple bags of yum f2 creature baits for a buck a bag. Be sure to check the clearance aisle and not the fishing dept, the fishing dept has NO SALES except for a couple shakespeare rods at my local walmart. The sales are in the clearance aisle. 

 

I think 25 should do me for a while on the spooks/PopR. 25 for the price of 5 is not a bad deal. 

 

They are factory seconds, no doubt about that. The package is labeled "hardbait" and nothing specific. But there is nothing wrong with a factory second topwater, I checked them over and could not find any flaws but a misaligned eye or a scratch in the paint. I would probably not buy a diving crankbait if it was a factory second though.
