She does and trust me, you don't want to go there.

 

Her last date ended with the waiter quitting his job.  She also goes to bed at 7pm, has pj's on around 5, and would read a book about the best place in the world rather than go there.

The Zoom Mag II is probably my favorite plastic worm. It’s my go-to. I have a lot of colors. I like the Candy Bug and the Scuppernong variations. They seem to catch ‘em about anywhere I fish. 
You have some excellent choices there.

Cranberry I’ve never tried

 

Plum Apple I tried recently and it does as good if not better than plum

 

Scuppernong is hot

A little trip this weekend and I picked up a couple of leech plastics made in Prairie Du Chien, thinking rigging them on a slider head, some rage swimmers in colors I haven’t seen in stores around here (silver shiner and sexy shad), and some moon eye jigs for the swim baits  

 

Got the DT6 and DT8 in the big Shad color that I think will clean up in clear water. The Ozark Trail baits, SB 3.88 and jerk 4.88. I am actually looking forward to trying these. i will go without changing the hardware to see how they fish. I have had cheap cranks work well in the past. Time will tell.

I knew these things were pricey but wow. $175. Am I seeing that right. 

 

If I'm in the Gucci club, you must be buying Louis Vuitton.  ? ?

Yeah, and the worst part is it didn't even include a sticker ? (seriously my first reaction was where is the sticker ?)

 

These custom swimbaits, and all the JDM high end stuff guys like you post make me turn into a drooling idiot, at which point the monkey takes control of the wheel and speeds into the financial abyss.

Jabberjaws were on clearance on TW. Got some of them and some Lucky Craft LC Silent 1.5s. The colors on them all are amazing.

@LrgmouthShad & @MN Fisher I’m glad to know it’s not just me? I’m not capable of fishing with what I currently own but I’ll be if I’m not still looking ?

My wife set me up early for Father's day. A new Calcutta BFS is on the way as well.  

 

The Bassday lures are amazing.  It has become one of my favorites.

Santa treated her to some jewelry for Mothers Day and our Anniversary so she's trying to be as nice to me as she can.

 

She bought the rod but I pointed her in the right direction. I gave her a list for the odds and ends. This is the first rod she's ever bought me. The rod shipped was $250. Probably one the better deals I have found. 

 

I bought the reel. It too was a good deal. So good, it kind of worries me that it might have an issue or something.  We will see. It's coming on the slow boat from Japan.

Dude screw you. I had forgotten about Digitaka following my Zillion purchase. 
 

Now I really want the Scorpion MGL super badly, and it’s mostly about aesthetics. 
 

Friggin bait monkey. I’m going to sleep before he mugs me

Received my Midway USA open box purchase. 13 Fishing Envy Black. 7'6 H. $375 rod for $140. Great deal. As others have said, absolutely nothing wrong with these open box rods.

Any suggestions from anyone on what you'd throw on their 6'8" Med/Fast?  Broke my 7'0" med/mod Okuma EVX the other day and need a replacement.  Basically just want an all around treble hook rod

@NorthernBasser That is a sweet looking setup you put together there. Is the 13 fishing reel from the same sale? I apologize in advance if you already talked about the reel.

No, I bought that reel in 2017. It's the first gen Concept C and it's an amazing reel. I think it came out in 2014. Weighing in at only 6.1 oz, it was kind of ahead of it's time. I haven't tried the gen 2 yet, but everything I read/hear says the gen 1 is the better reel.

Haven't used that particular rod, but I'd guess jerkbaits, smaller topwater. If the tip is faster finesse jigs. 1/4 oz chatterbaits.

I know that feeling, or the river will eat it like they normally do.
