Are JDM snacks any better than USDM snacks?

Some are, some make you think you've just been poisoned.

Saved $46.80 on the Jack Hammers -15 for shipping, I'm happy with the order.

I love that all of us never like to disclose how much we spent, just how much we "saved". 

We're a sick bunch.

I'm not shy about that. Got $1000 from the parents for Christmas...told it was to be 'fun' money only.

 

With my tackle, new rods/reels and a trailer for my canoe...it's all gone.

 

So $1000 spent this year.

My Academy order came in today. If you can't tell I like the chatter bait. I actually tried to place another order of Zako and razor shad. But, they must have sold out very quickly after being discounted. The sad part is how quickly those Zakos will go when you are on a good chatter bait bite.

My rod came in on Tuesday, a couple of days earlier than expected. First time purchasing a rod online and not getting a chance to feel/inspect it out in store, but I had an idea what I was getting into. The packaging was next level, it came in a thick compressed corrugated tube (no fluting), bubble wrapped in 5 sections with a foam tip protector and plastic wrap. I bought it off Amazon.ca, I could tell Dobyns packaged the rod up from all the shipping labels. This gave me a lot of confidence in buying from Dobyns directly going forward. I wanted to share in case others were hesitant to buy online from Dobyns or Amazon. I'll take pics of the packaging, if anyone is interested.

Completed my swimbait combo this week. Dobyns Fury 7'9 SB with the Quantum Monster that I picked up during the TW Christmas Sale. Spooled it with 65 lb Sufix 832 today. Pretty excited to take a couple trips to NoCal this year and test it out.

Added some square bills to round out my box, and spent some time organizing things while watching the snow melt. I didn't have any natural colors, so since I was already at cabelas.

And the top water box. Never tried a spook before, and grabbed the pop r just in case.

Still have some LTB stuff I need to go through and organize, mostly soft plastics.

I learned to fish topwater baits with a Heddon Spook and once you get the cadence down its pretty easy.

An out of the blue garage sale score! When I'm driving by one and see even the slightest hint of fishing related stuff I'll stop. Tends to be total junk. Every now and again....I won't even say what I paid. Rediculous deal!

That Vision 110 is no good. Send it to me and I'll dispose of it for you.

For this reason, I started having my deliveries to the local UPS store for pick up - empty it out in the back of my Jeep, throw the box in the trash outside the UPS store, go home as usual. Next time she leaves, place everything in the tackle box. Done.

 

Now you don’t think she does anything like this for her purchases do you?  I’m sure there wouldn’t be a shoe/makeup/clothes monkey for women would there??

I’m having stuff delivered to my work. And, yeah, there’s a handbag in the closet that cost more than most bass boats..........
