When We Have A Great Day Of Fishing?

Recommended Posts

When we have a great day of fishing or some awesome days in a row. My question is do you tend to purchase more fishing tackle at this happy, happy time?

I can't be alone. I tend to purchase more tackle as my success continues. Just hoping my success will continue.

What do you guys/gals do?

Depends for me, if I am running low on the said bait or lure I'll go grab a couple more.  I don't go crazy or anything.

Many, not all, but many of my tackle purchases have been a response to a  "poor me" moment.  Something, real or imagined happened and I felt bad.   Poor me.    I'm not the first guy to exercise "retail therapy" and I doubt if I"ll be the last.   I've found through experience that the other "pour me" moments aren't particularly healthy.  I like a beer now and then, but not as therapy.   A good day of fishing will make me buy tackle only if I run out of something that was working.

 

Stuff that is "on sale" often grabs my attention.  I walked into Rogers the other day and they had a BUNCH of discontinued soft plastics on sale for a buck a bag.  I had an hour to kill before time to go to work.  Twenty five bags later, it was time to go to work.  So, I don't know, I guess my answer is that I buy tackle when the mood strikes me, and there really isn't a reliable indicator of when that is going to be.  Any marketing whiz who peeks into my shed will understand that the urge to buy tackle happens frequently.

Always looking for deals on tackle, no matter what time of year. Shakey heads, hooks, tungsten weights, jigs, flukes, twin tail grubs, drop shot minnows and weights, rat l traps, square bills, and jerkbaits are what I go through the most so I always keep an eye open for a discount.

With the exception of replacing lost or damaged baits I do the majority of my purchases during the doldrums of winter.  Seldom do I purchase much during the heady rush of victory unless only one bait and/or technique seems to be working and I only have one of said item.  THEN I buy 20!

Nope. I purchase all my crap on or around the big annual sales. I buy in bulk.
