Latest Tackle Purchase Thread (Bait Monkey Victim Support Group)


Master Bait'r

Recommended Posts

Mike @Siebert Outdoors came through as always with some straight 🔥🔥🔥🥵🥵🥵

 

Got some snipers in my clear water Pats Gizzard, some snipers in our new 'Mud Gizzard' which is a chartreuse variant of the clear water color that I'm VERY stoked to throw on big lake this summer 😎

 

I got Northern Craw and Mud Craw which are absolutely incredible sunfish colors if you've got Sunny's with muted oranges and purples with blue or orange hues.  Absolutely incredible for mimicking the late spring time craws around here - particularly the Northern Craw which nails the ones my son has been finding.

Got them pictured here with Zoom Speed Craw and Strike King Scounbug - my favorite finesse jig trailers.

 

Dig it.

 

The Pats Gizzard caught me my biggest fish last month at 6.3 lb in gin clear water so it works as intended.  😎

Picked up an Evergreen Combat Stick for wake baits/rats and finally pulled the trigger on a couple Buzbe Qube bags. Not sure they're worth their higher than it seems like they should be price, but I am appreciating the number of plastics they can hold for my day bag on the deck.

Replenished a bunch of plastics with Omnia's buy 2 get 1 free deal.

@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.

I just got it, Use it few times at home and it was ok, The Glow in the dark is not really glowing but it cuts the braided lines and other lines very well. Also what I like about it is the clamp that you can clamp to the hat or pocket or etc... Overall I am happy with it and it is a keeper. Remember I was boomerang line cutter user for long and they are really good cutters as well and that's why I bought the second one.

I've been testing out the Evo Elite chatterbait with the Freeloader as a trailer. So far I've been very impressed.

Forgot my rod (yea I know can you believe it? ) when I went to my inlaws (they have a place on a lake)  and was forced to suffer and stare at the water. Decided to pick up a "cheap" combo to keep there with a very modest selection of baits. 

 

Was going to get a combo at academy but they had no left handed ones and for the cost I felt I could build one better. Tacklewarehouse just so happened to have the SpeedSpool and Ark Catalyzer rod on sale and got this setup in for 120 to my door. Put some 12# YoZuri hybrid on there and called it a day. Really excited to fish this actually.

Yessir. I love Siebert's Northern Craw color as well for imitating gills.

Oh, I likey.

If I get snipped off by a pike, you may not ever hear from me again because I’ll have a cardiac on the water.

I've had to replace 3 Rattlin Raps the past two seasons cause of pike stealing them.

Losing lures to pike is only funny when it happens to someone else.

 

Once it happens to you, there isn’t much laughing going on. It’s mostly just profanity followed by sadness.

And here i am over here trying to catch pike in the one lake near me that has them and have only gotten 1 small pike in the past 3 years...

Maybe i should just tie on a Jackhammer and think about catching bass, do you think that would work? Or do i have to use something more expensive? You guys in MN seem to have the experience im looking for about pike.

I don’t want to derail this thread since it’s a tackle monkey purchase thread. I’ll PM you on some pike advice.

Try an A rig made with two Mega bass vision 110's and 3 jack hammers.

I like the Ark Tharp series so much, I decided to give the new Invoker Tour a look. I still love my Expride's, Orochi's etc, but there are some real gems to be had nowadays in the less expensive group. The Tharp is definitely one of them, and I'm willing to bet the Invoker Tour won't disappoint, either.

 

It's a 7' MH/XF. It comes in at a very impressive 4.05 oz. That's lighter than my 7'1 MH Kistler Helium (NFC blank) which weighs 4.10 oz. Another thing I love about these rods is the hook keeper. Probably my favorite style.

I tried many braid cutters, Pitbull Tackle is the best I've found.
