Sorry to hear about the SNAFU mention above @AlabamaSpothunter. I placed a Memorial Day order with TW after getting the green light and a “Happy Father’s Day” and was more than pleasantly surprised the Navionics Platinum+ Lake Maps card got the discount. If anyone is looking to get a Navionics card at a discount I’d say now’s as good time as any.

Look at these prices! And that’s pro level hitting $50 for free shipping.

It’d be worth it if tw actually sold a t shirt that wasn’t a piece of cardboard. They should take a look a Omnia’s shirts if they want people walking around marketing for them. I keep a TW shirt in the bag in case someone on the boat needs emergency tp.  I don’t regularly sleep in a t shirt but when I do it’s an Omnia t shirt.

Yeah that was a whole soup sandwich that made me a little angry lol.   

 

So a place called Dance's Sporting Goods in VA made a post in Swimbait Universe that they had all colors in stock......within a minute or two I ordered the Gizzard from them.   They waited over 20hrs to cancel my order after telling us some of our orders might be cancelled only a few hours after I ordered.  Apparently they oversold Gizzards to 36 people.  

 

Meanwhile I didn't buy the bone in stock at BPS because I didn't know whether my order would be cancelled or not.  

 

20hrs later they in fact cancelled my order, BPS was out of bone, and I was left with no Chad Shad ordered.   

 

I finally ordered it from TW, it will get here whenever it gets here.   I'm so done with those beanie baby big baits, and the beanie baby collectors who make up 90% of that niche in bass fishing.   Some of us only want these baits to catch fish.   

 

Don't do business with Dance's is about the only take away I got lol.  

Bass Pro shows all colors of the chad shad in stock online.

I almost hate the stupid bait at this point?

 

I was fishing with a dude last week that had two of the OG resin ones, he had all the baits under the sun, thousands and thousands in these baits.    The Phoney Shad was the best-looking bait out of everything to me.   The KGB Crappie was a piece of art as well.   

 

These baits are so fun to fish with, the beanie baby collectors ruin it for many folks though.   I missed the trick shad drop by like 3 mins.    Kind of glad now, I'm just gonna call that Phoney Frog dude up, and pre order exactly what I want.   If I'm paying $160 for a bait, better be the one that I already have some weird confidence built into.

It's a very happy day.  Lithium battery on the way.  And some swerve glide baits.  And some boxer craws.  And some booyah Spinnerbaits.  And a rat wakebait.  And some dredgers.  Oh the monkey is very pleased with me today.  ??????

The monkey was too strong in you, I caved this morning lol.  Hopefully I can cancel the one at TW.   They said they can get me a Gizzard by June 2nd, not sure when the TW one will ship so I pulled the trigger.

 

I better catch a DD on this stupid thing ?


Never seen a bait that was mass produced be this hard to get, every fish in America will know what a Chad Shad is in a year ?

Was listening to BTL earlier with the guy in charge at SPRO and the owner of KGB swimbaits.    They've already sold and shipped 15,000 of the Chad Shads.   That's incredible lol.    

 

Somebody is going to be making a run at the Whopper Plopper in the "Found Lures" thread ?

Darn you uncle frank !!! Seriously though,I’ve been killing it on spine craws this year.  That GB hayes has been on fire in gin clear Michigan lakes. 


I didn’t mean to order that many number 7’s I think they were left in from previous times I was on the fence about buying them. all this only came up to $50 with BTl code and free shipping.  So I saved around $12. Oh well everything considered they are not that expensive.  I’ll fish one, keep one in the package and maybe if I ever run into uncle franks get him to autograph one. 

 

Reloaded on Spine craws in GB hayes and GP blue flake.  New colors in pearl and cali 420. 

I think that NXS deep diver will be good on cloudy days in clear water.

Loomis superstore order from black friday.  I ordered 7, 12, and 18lb in clear, but I finally told them to just send me the 'invisible'.  Had to get a 6lb and 10lb also.  The 6lb samuri will be the thinnest line I've every used for bass fishing at .0083".

They're stupid and I hate them until June 5 according to the tracking I check every 5 minutes ?

 

I actually tried to get in on the drop for the KGB TSGs this morning.....had myself and another person trying to score bait, they were gone within 20-30seconds.   $175 baits, and low IQ people like myself are dying to buy one lol.  It's stupidity, but I can't help it.  These big baits are a form of fishing like nothing else.   

 

KGB has a license to print money at this point.

Buying terminal tackle is akin to your favorite football team drafting an o-lineman in the 1st round. It's boring, and definitely not sexy. But it's very important and has to be done.
