More stuff my "financial advisor" said I needed. Those Keitech Clear Lake Hitch colors look good.

Late delivery. Sweet Fish on left & Silver Powdered Shad/Baitfish on right. Last photo above, Flashing Wagasaki on top, Dark Thunder Clear Bait on bottom. Flashing Wagasaki has a stronger pink to it than closeup shows.

Sweet Fish on top, Powdered Shad/Baitfish on bottom. Sweet Fish looks more natural & closer to what I’d expect locally. The Powdered Baitfish is flashier. Powdered Ayu looked to be a good one as well but unavailable at the moment. The Ayu was similar to Powdered Baitfish but a bit darker with greens (to me) & a visible yellow dot just behind gill plate area.

Got my copperstate order today. Really looking forward to trying the smaller provokes. I have been hoping they would come out with these for a while now. The treble heads hopefully will keep me from needing to make my own line through baits with stir straws and weights.

Couldn't pass up the exchange rate for a 24 Certate. Probably 90% of my setups are Shimano, but I've really enjoyed the Ballistic MQ and figured I had to give the Certate a shot after reading so many great reviews. I'll be putting it on a legend elite 76MF for tubes and all around finesse.

So this morning I needed to pick up some stuff and I wandered over to the fishing aisle and picked up some swimbait hooks for 1$ a pack, the Pop-R for 2$, the trap for 2$, and the Jerks for 2.50$. Kind of funny the Ozark trail was the most expensive, but I really hope they don't discontinue it, because it has a really nice slow rise and the stock hooks were sticky enough for my fishing needs.

 

I also left a lot of stuff there. Googan bandito bugs were 1.50$, shad raps were 2$, Rap minnows were 2$-3.50$, etc. Lots of great deals, but I bought what I needed and left a bunch for others to take advantage of.

I had just talked myself out of going by walmart today to check the inventory, and then I see your post. The bait monkey thanks you for your contributions.

Added another full tray of Oneten's, Jr.'s, and X-80's.

I think an intervention is in order.

My 3 orders thus far this week. All essential... 

Stocking up for me and my kid. Throwing beetle spins on UL should be fun if we can get some bites. And a new rod and reel for me from the clearance department. I'm going back to Academy soon as they have an extra 50% off marked clearance prices going right now, too good to be true :)

Lol...this was me 10 years ago.  I used the 'grab and shake' method of freeing baits.  I've gone to thin 3700's now, and like them.  Plano was happy....I bet I've spent $500 on 3701's.

This used to be me too - quite the cluster.

In boxes that have multiple baits per slot/section,

I use small rubber bands to secure the trebles.

Game Changer for me.

Easier on the hooks, the baits and especially on me.

Yinz just don't know the pleasure I get when I want one color but get 12.

 

For me it's just a storage thing. I already have around 90 plano boxes full of stuff. When I fish I go through everything and load up 2 3600 deeps and whatever plastics I need into my tackle backpack with the days needs. I mostly fish out of a yak or on the back of others boats so this is what works for me. If I had a boat, it may be a bit different. Maybe someday...

Took advantage of TW's latest extra 25% off discounted sale items. Flat Daddy's for $3. Hard to pass up. Like I said, 13 Fishing hard baits are so underrated. Sad to see them go if that's really what's happening. And a few 6th Sense stuff from Copper State. 

 

Anybody ever use the Duel Hardcore Noi-Z? It was $7.50, marked down from $20 so figured I'd give it a shot. It kind of reminds me of the Megabass I-Loud.

I feel ya. I got bit too.

 

It feels solid and smooth, sort of like the Shimano Bantam of spinning reels. I took it for a test run and caught one dink. Looking forward to catching something more substantial.

Bought a brand new Berkley for $19 for my work station for spooling my reels, Then browsing eBay I found a vintage casting reel from Berkley that can matchy matchy with the rod, So I went for it(actually my girlfriend bought it for me🙃). It became nice combo for work station spooling.

@ATA That is one kick a** combo my man 😃 And the price couldn’t be better to boot 😉

@ATA Maybe our vintage experts aka @bulldog1935 & @redmeansdistortion along with the others on here can shed some light on that reel. PS I totally dig the shape of that reel.
