Thefishingtacklehub.com Anyone Order From Here?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I'm just wondering if anyone has ever ordered from www.thefishingtacklehub.com? I've found a discontinued bait that I haven't been able to find anywhere else. They still have some in stock, but I've never heard of this place before. I was hoping maybe someone has ordered from here and is able to shed some light on their experience.

I have not - but they appear to have several decent "Deals" if one is willing to look through it all . . .

After looking at it a little more, they make it back in shipping....$20 flat rate. I wouldn't mind that if I was ordering a bunch but considering what I was going to order fits in a $5 flat rate box it's kind of turning me off to the deal.

If it were me I would balance desire to get "hard to find discontinued bait" with most I could lose. If amount wasn't too much (subjective) I would do it but pay by PayPal. Just remember you potentially could lose it all.

 

On another note the $20.00 s/h would probably cause me to pass unless I really REALLY wanted the item. I have a pet peeve of being ripped of on s/h charges and rarely allow myself to be taken advantage of this way.  Again only caveat is if the item really is no longer available anywhere else I might hold the nose and hit the send button.

 

That being said, when restoring an old car to date correct codes you would not believe how much I overpaid for some parts, I spend YEARS looking for date correct coded block and when finally found one didn't blink at his ridiculous price. I make fun of myself for what I paid, but truth be told it may have been years if ever, before I found another and I am not getting any younger.

Check Outlet Bait and Tackle. They carry a ton of discontinued stuff.

Thanks for the insight guys! Rambler I'm not sure how I missed that, but I was skeptical too when there was no hard contact information. 68 the $20 for shipping pretty much turned me off. I wasn't planning on ordering a huge quantity of them and $20 for shipping is a joke for a small order. Hoosier, I've been there and they don't have them :/ looks like I'll just have to keep my eyes peeled elsewhere.

That's too bad. What bait are you looking for?

The Terminator Short Arm Thump'r. Had one in my box for over a year and had minimal success also with minimal use, but early this fall I had a few lights out days with it and then it ended up snapping :/ they weren't big sellers and  they got discontinued fairly quickly so they are hard to come by. I do still have the blade of mine which I think is a lot of the reason for it's success. The Oklahoma blade is very under-rated as far as blades go.

Haha, that's my dad's favorite Spinnerbait too! He really loves the Turtle blade.

Up here the Oklahoma blades are hard to find off the shelf up here. They still put those on a few colors but we have to order them. That thump'r had the biggest OK blade I've seen. I'm a big fan of them all though, especially up here where we have lots of grass. Those blades come through it way better than a Colorado blade with similar vibration, but still produce a ton of flash like a willow leaf does.

Right, that's why my dad likes them so much is because he likes the thump, but we fish in grass like milfoil and hydrilla and just plain muck and it comes through it really well.

We have a lot of wild rice up here and as it grows it comes up long and stringy. Any spinnerbait gets clogged with it, willow the least, oklahoma is a close second, and colorado....good luck haha. If you get a cast in without the blades fouled it's about like hitting a hole in one on the golf course.

The only contact info I found on their site is a number with a Vietnam country code - buyer beware! Again if you can risk the loss it will be a gamble.

All the social media links go to a single person's profiles too. Not that it can't be a one man show, but that's kind of raising red flags as well
