ideas on money to spend

Recommended Posts

I have around $250 burning a hole in my fishing pocket. I really don't NEED anything. I have a couple loomis rods and my others are still good. I have several stx, curado and chronarch reels. Not enough for new trolling motor or power poles. what would you spend it on?

Whenever I got spare cash and no real needs I like to burn it on baits. Can't go wrong with the staples like plastics, hard lures etc. 

Stock up on line, weights, hooks. List goes on an on.

Fluorocarbon and Braid. Buy a few bulk spools. You'll save yourself money in the long run.

I would stock up on terminal tackle and line as that seems to be one of my expensive purchases every season in order to restock those.

A good pair of polarized sunglasses, a good pair of pliers, a nice scale, buy some good hooks to replace the stock hooks on some of your baits.   Gator to keep the sun off your head and face, a landing net if necessary, rod socks, reel covers.   Let me know if you need any more help spending your money.

Costas! Choose whichever frame you like, but go with 580G lenses. My favorites are Silver Mirror, but also try Green Mirror etc. Preferably in a store where you can go outside with them on so you can get the full effect.

Do what I do! Pick a style of lure you hardly ever throw (say, crankbaits for instance) and go out and buy a ton of them. Then put them all in a box, and never fish them.

Buy some new fishing pants that don't have holes burned in the pockets.

If there really isn't a single thing you need, save the money or pay a bill or do something nice for someone in your life.

If there's nothing on your wish list, sock the money away and keep adding to the stash. At some point there will be something you want. Unless you're made of money (which is fine BTW), if you spend it now, you might wish you had it later.

 

Not spending money is money in the bank.

This^ ICAST isn't far off when all the shiny new things come out. Stick the money in a drawer for when those goodies come out and the monkey starts jumping up and down on your shoulders and dragging you to the computer to put in a TW order.

Start collecting rare swimbaits.  If you ever need cash you can always sell them, usually same-day for close to what you paid for it.

For me it would be gas/oil for the boat.  I have a "fuel fund" that gets depleted really fast once spring hits.

If you want a warm fuzzy feeling...do something for someone random.  Either in a store or restaurant.  Could be a kid staring at an outfit to go fishing with his dad or a family having a meal.  Sounds like you been blessed.

Never know when someone isnt as fortunate as you or is running into tough times, keep some of that with you and offer to help someone in need, whether it be donating to a charity or paying for someones gas or meal. An act of kindness can change someones life really quickly 👍
