$50 for Christmas. What do YOU buy?

Recommended Posts

So you get fifty bucks for Christmas. Not to much not to Little. What do you buy? Why?

 

Me? I go stupid and order skirts for the jigs I make.

Seibert Dredge Brush Jig Set - 2018 is the year of the jig and I’m going to force myself to fish it with confidence 

 

Seibert Fogy - because bladed Jigs catch fish year round and I’ve heard positive reviews and I’m digging the colors. 

 

Keitech Swing FAT Impact 3.8” - various colors to match new swim Jigs I bought this year.

Gas in the boat

I was thinking oil. Gallon of boat oil with tax is right at about $50 for me.

My God man, what are you using in it? I switched to the Pennzoil and it's a bit over $18 a gallon.

The Optimax Pro XS likes the expensive stuff, but at least it's cheaper than what my BIL has to put into his Evinrude!

Similar situation for me.  Caught a Lamiglass bass rod, 7'3"MH F on sale for $49! Upgrades my MH rod selection.

I got a fifty-buck gift card ... needed a new pinion gear for a reel and after ordering that I found myself with $42.00 left over. Since I have decided to expand my limited fishing skills to include jigs and finesse fishing, I ordered a half dozen jigs and some shakey-heads. I figure I could get a few of each to get started without being assaulted by the Bait Monkey. I think of it as “forced self-control”.

@thinkingredneck: yeah, I hear you!!  That, in my opinion, is the beauty of a gift card.  Since I have trouble with jigs this time of year - they really skip well across the ice but don’t punch worth a hoot - I figure I can slowly accumulate the stuff I need (OK ... want!) without incurring the wrath of my hausfrau.  Worms for T-rigs are checked off my list, now my introductory effort to jigs is covered. Next is hooks and weights, then new line ... and on and on! Dreading the selection of new line for my different rod/reel combos!!! Anyway, by spring I will definitely be all ready and organized.

I don’t believe there is a wrong answer out there. This is a broad enough question that anyone and everyone can answer. In the winter I just kinda meander around kicking rocks, piddling, and making jigs.

Line is a good one that I haven’t even given a second thought to but I like that.

That’s pretty genius if you need one. Great ideas guys keep them coming. I know many of us out here will get money or gift cards for Christmas.

I'd be doing the same most likely. Mercury Optimax.

I would probably use it to help replenish any lures, line, hooks, weights, etc. that I have used up.

I have this dilemma right now with a use anywhere gift card. I am going to hold onto it for any great sales I come across when we are out and about, and instead of thinking if I only had the cash, I will now. 

 

Worst case I use it to supplement the TW gift cards I got when cashing them in during one of their sales.

$50 gets me just about a full tank of gas which might get me three round trips to some of the best SMB fishing in SE Mass.....

 

I'll take it!
