I only got one fishing item when I went to Cabelas this past week. I have a friend that likes to go shooting once a week. Well we went so much I went through all my ammo so I had to get a little bit so we can go shooting together again. He sometimes gives me ammo to clean his guns. He hates doing it. But he hasn't needed any done lately.

 

Anyways. After spending over 2 hours looking at stuff to get and changing my mind a million times. It is hard when you have limited funds and you want to take the whole store home with you. LOL I found they had a Chatterbait Elite for $5.99. So I bought one. I should have gotten both. Duh. It is a color I have never seen. Redbone. I looked around for trailers for it for a long time. Decided to just use what I have at home. The green pumpkin pearl looks pretty good.

I went to Wal-Mart to get some groceries. And of course I had to go down the fishing aisle. I saw they had a War Eagle Finesse spinnerbait. I have one in Purple Shad and the fish can't seem to resist it a lot of the times. Normally within 5 cast I will catch one. So when I saw they had a different color, Mouse, I figured I would pick one up. We will see if it is as good as the Purple Shad.

A friend brought this down to me today.  Leaving tomorrow for Magdalena Bay for two weeks.  I hope to be able to give good review after I get back from the trip.  I am afraid that the Monkey will be convincing me to buy some swimbaits now that I have reel made for larger baits.

He got me guys............The bait monkey got me. I've got multiple orders coming in. The first from Woo Tungsten. I got almost every size of non chip punching weight they have. I bought a few of their weights a while back and have really been pleased with this company's tungsten. The next order is from Hook Up tackle. I'm not gonna say what I got from here because they are already hard enough to find. To make it short I got a ton of swimbaits that are discontinued or not found in the United States. The third and final order comes from Shane's baits. I ended up buying an Upper Blades of Glory and a Lower. I got a few other things from there as well. The bait monkey hit me hard this week putting me out $500.😭

That’s how I feel every time I buy a crank-bait. Just a matter of time!

The JDM Exchange Rate Monkey delivered today. 

20231103_181151.jpg.6208e615e699f63e5787e2f87e78c5a3.jpg

 

I can't believe how small this thing is. It's about the same size as the BFS version.

This has to be one the most over the top and maybe overpriced baits I have bought.  US price is $30. I paid about $15.  No big deal if it catches some fish but no way I'm paying $30 for one.

Sorry, was out of town for work. I bought all of that at my local Academy, all of the gold label was on clearance for 9.97 I believe. The spool I picked up is 20lb since that's what I generally use for inshore leaders.

Nice, our grandkids will be talking about the great JDM deal days in 50 years 🤣

 

Japan said it's Black Friday sales all year long.   This time last year I was saying the same thing, JDM pricing was better than the best Black Friday USDM deals.

@AlabamaSpothunter I couldn’t agree more and if I was bit more serious about my fishing I would have jumped all over the Daiwa zillion tw that you and others have praised.

Zillion is a good reel, don’t get me wrong, but there is no way I would pay the normal price for it. For the discounted price that I got it for a while back due to JDM/USD exchange, I agree it is a good reel.

Couldn't pass up a 30%+ sale on kicknockers and I've been wanting to see if the fish around here will hit dice.

I think you need a big pair of hairy dice yourself to throw such a thing 🤡
