Latest Tackle Purchase Thread (Bait Monkey Victim Support Group)


Master Bait'r

Recommended Posts

I like the idea of this thread too!

 

I have to admit I went a little nuts at the Bass Pro Spring sale. It was annual bonus time at work, so I brought 3 old spinners to trade in. Wanted to check out a 2000 Vanford for a little Falcon Expert "Dropshot" rod I have, and maybe check out a couple Tatula MQ 2500 reels for my wife to replace a couple heavier Presidents she had been using.

 

As usual lately,.... Bass Pro didn't have what I wanted. No 2000 series Vanford. Doesn't even look like thet stock it when I checked online, and they had no 2500 Tatula MQs.

 

I had already traded in, so I was stuck and decided to liok at other options. Decided on a Tatula MQ 3000, a Ballistic MQ 2500, and a Vanford 2500. I put the Tat on a 6'9" ML Fenwick HMG my wife likes. Balances REALLY nice!  I put the Vanford on an older Fenwick World Class I had picked up at American Legacy. Feels good! Lastly. I put the Ballistic MQ on the 6'10" Falcon Expert rod. Nice light setup! I set it up as a light little ned rig rod for now.

 

I think I am done for a while!! (I hope!!)

Picked up a couple new Daiwa reels . The 1st a tatula mq lt spinning reel. The 2nd a tatula sv tws.  Really happy with both so far the sv tws reminds me a lot of the zillion. Not quite as smooth or light though but not far off.

Can we all just decide it's okay to post rods and reels in here?

Yes, it's been that way for years. No sense in changing it now.

@FrnkNsteen I too took advantage of the BPS trade in sale but I’ve learned to hold onto my trade in until I’m ready to purchase and our BPS (Bolingbrook IL) has a cash register in the fishing department and he handled the trade in and sale transactions. I also stopped at my favorite local shop (Anglers Outlet) on my way home yesterday from a work meeting. IMG_2786.jpeg.c85db4234229b4d0de3e773be8cc9e17.jpegIMG_2785.jpeg.f14fc90dae28c23d2a0224037bdc80ac.jpegIMG_2801.jpeg.c0a85505a8f2cf0ea6403d0ba1fc27a4.jpegI’m still debating on putting an alder Abu Garcia Cardinal or a Piscifun Carbon X 1000 on the St Croix and I’ll agree with you guys that love them and although as pointed out parts aren’t readily available but as of 3 seasons they show no signs of needing any.

I gotta stay away from TW!
 

My last three purchases they didn’t include the free sticker, which were all over the $50 limit. I added them to my cart but they didn’t show up.

 

No biggie, I have three in a drawer already. 😀

 

That place is a deep pit!

The one in Cincinnati is the same way. I could have done the same thing, but I think I subconsciously knew I wanted to get something either way so I didn't really care! 😂😂.

 

Just would have been nice if they had any of which I went there wanting

You now have to scroll down on the checkout page and select that you want the free sticker for orders over $50.

Went to DSG for some Yum hellgramites and found a few extras. They had buy five clearance items get five free. I had a coupon and some score card cash. I got all this for $45 but some is for a buddy of mine. I didn't need any of it. Thanks Monkey.

Always been intrigued by DC reels and the release of the Met 70 at jdm rates was just too good for me to pass up.

I'll be using it primarily for spinner baits when the wind picks up, so of course I had to add some more sv-3's.

I'm curious how these Geecrack finesse swimbaits will do compared to Keitechs and largos.

Are these “Elastech’ie”, super strong or more a conventional material?

Just pulled one out of the package to check and it's more conventional with a little more hefty/durability feeling than I would have anticipated. Also, now my fingers smell like overly ripe corn chips. 😆

I am still in line, would you record a clip and show it around under natural light?

Stocking up on some basics that I was running low on for the year from BPS and Tackle Warehouse. Also picked up a few new items to try including the Picasso spinnerbaits recommended by @FishTank

Not the best lighting but here it is next to the regular Met. The DC is quite dark... I'd describe it s dark gray bordering on almost black.
