Latest Tackle Purchase Thread (Bait Monkey Victim Support Group)


Master Bait'r

Recommended Posts

We have a local hardware store that sells lots of really cool tackle in Greensboro NC called McKnight Hardware and I love when the wife wants to get gardening supplies in the spring.

Poorly photographed but I got some:

 

Zoom 6" Lizards in Rootbeer Green flake

Zoom Salty Tubes 3.5" in GP Candy

Zoom Double Ringer in Watermelon Red

Zoom Centipede in Chartreuse Pepper 

Zoom Mag 2 in Scuppernong

Zoom Horny Toad in GP/White Belly

Strike King Rage Craw in Moon Juice 

Gene Larew Salt Craw in Black n Blue 

Norman Speed N Crankbait in Holy Shad

Rapala Maverick in Green Shad

 

The monkey is happy with me.

 

Got a special order from Mike Siebert on the way too and I'm pumped for that to arrive this week 😎👍🏼

Those look durable.  How you think the 'medium' would handle bank fishing for bass?

They're too heavy for bass fishing, IMHO. They're S - Glass for catfishing.

Favorite ebay vendor purchase was just dropped of by UPS.  I purchased this entire pile for $65 shipped.  6 packs of net bait junior crush goby pearl l, 3 zman leap frogs, 3 DT-14 root beer craw and 3 DT-14 bruised cranks.  

 

its almost cranking season.

3 packs of flukes in various white colors 

1 pack 3.5 dolive beaver

1 pack 1/16 brass bullet weight 

1 pack 1/32 bullet weight 

1 pack 1/64 bullet weight 

 

seems like finesse and power fishing all in one package, lately I have been a sucker for white baits. Although I did resist buying a couple different vision 110 in a color that I don’t have including a matte white stain reaction, gill colors. It was very hard but I have way too many jerkbaits as it is.

Got another Expride B. 7'2 MH/F. I had read that the B's are stiffer than the A', but comparing it to my A of the same model, it almost seems a tad softer. I absolutely love these rods. I'm glad they finally added a hook keeper, but I HATE where they put it. I also have the 6'10 M model that I'll use for jerkbaits. Reaching down to drab it off the deck and getting 110 hooks in your hand isn't much fun.

Got a few of the Ark Cobb series rods. I really like the Ark Tharp series. Great rods at their price point. So when I saw Ark had a BOGO deal on the Cobb's, I figured what the heck. I didn't need them, but for $50 a pop, I decided to check them out. These are the cheapest rods I own (retail $100), so to be honest I wasn't expecting a whole lot. But I must say, I'm pleasantly surprised at how light they are and how well they fish. I decided on the 7'1 Buzz Burner and 7'4 Walking Stick. I thought they were black from looking at websites, but when the sun hits them just right, you can see they're actually green.

@NorthernBasser, I believe we need a close up of that wall behind your boat ;)

That’s the tackle shed.

Lots of hopeless addicts in this thread including myself, but I always think hey you're not that bad off.......just look at @NorthernBasser 🤣

 

I have no doubt he has a better selection than some brick-and-mortar tackle stores.

Guys, it's gotten so out of control you have no idea. It's flat-out embarrassing at this point. The wall is full so now I have tubs/totes full of new tackle. I don't even know what I have anymore. It honestly causes me anxiety. 🤦‍♂️ I have been giving some stuff away to random kids I see fishing at the ramps or along the river in my town.

Meanwhile - every piece of tackle I own, fits in the boxes that fit in the storage compartments.

Got some rod organizer from TW, It look small and light at first, But after having the rods in, It became sturdy and good looking for my G-loomise DC combos.

Just watch a couple episodes of American Pickets, where dudes have separate buildings just for all their collectables.  You'll see you aren't that bad.  Plus, pegboard spreads them out to maximize the visual monkey.  So don't do anything drastic.  The fact I have a bunch of crap keeps my buying to a minimum.  All better?

@ATA, I'd like to get your thoughts on the "Line Cutterz" you have pictured once you get a chance to use them. Been eyeballing them for a while but haven't pulled the trigger yet.
