Lets see those Christmas goodies!

Recommended Posts

I'm sick, and have been alternating between surfing and napping all day. I know it sounds like a lame excuse, but I lost my USB cord for my camera, so it would be tomorrow before I could show off any of the baits Santa brought me, but I sure would enjoy looking at what you all scored for the time being  ;)

Wow!  Where do you guys put all that!  Nice Megabass baits Raul...and that is a beautiful pink reel!  Were those in your stocking?!  RW- That is a nice stash of Yozuri, Yamamoto's and Ledgebusters you scored; surely you only deserved sticks and coal.  Alrighty then...great thread everyone  ;D

It's cool...I've just been really bored laying here on the couch, and as always, I love to look at other people's stuff.  In my case, my internet forum buddies are really the only people I have to show stuff off to...my friends don't fish, and my wife just wants it out of the living room!  My wife has had to endure me rearranging my stuff to accomodate all the new baits, and she is tired of looking at baits on the coffee table  ;).  Anyway...I'll resurrect this thread and show off some of my new stuff tomorrow for anyone that wants to see it.

I haven't cleared space on the memory card on my camera yet (my wife took a lot of pictures of the kid), but I did get a 6'10" Team All Star Big Boy flipping stick from my folks, and I bought myself a Shimano Citica 200D from myself to myself off the flea market section on this site.

There is a thread going in everything else that has everyone's Christmas presents on it. No pics and it has fishing related and none fishing related presents.

Finally, I have my little canon USB cable that connects to my laptop, so I'll show my gifts.  My wife, mom and stepdad, and dad and stepmom all make it easy on me, and I just send them links to what I want.  I haven't done this before, but I actually asked my mom in August if she would go ahead and order my Christmas gift, because I wanted to purchase a bunch more of the Yamamoto stuff that this reloading supply store was liquidating.  All there Yamamoto stuff was marked down to cost, and I knew if I called and inquired about a couple of large orders, they would cut me an even better deal.  I had already spent a all I could spare (or as much as my wife would let me  ;)) on literally several cases of Yamamoto baits, but I knew I would never see them this cheap again.  I shared that because I don't want you to think I'm that spoiled; I got a really good deal (only around $200 on this order).  Each bag has 12 bags of Senkos/Grubs/Ikas etc.

Next is my gift from my wife- I cleaned out all the BDS baits backwaters had on sale (30% off!), and also stocked up on backup Bagley's baits (over half off- $4.76 each!).  I lost more Lucky Craft shallow cranks this last season than I would care to share, and was down to only 1 or 2 in each of the baits/colors I throw.  I also lost over 10 Bagley B2's alone, so it was time to stock up.  I already had the splatterbait and apple green B2's, but the rest are new.  These are my backup/refill boxes- I only carry 2 shallow crank boxes; 1 shad box and one chartreuse/perch/craw box and carry about 2 of each bait and color I throw.  I didn't want you to think I carried a separate 3700 full of each bait I throw.

Finally, my dad hooked me up with a bunch of the Lucky Craft Rick Clunn's that were on sale.  I knew at $9.99 I had to stock up for the year.  He normally only spends about $100 on my gift, so I was tickled to find about 25 RC's under the tree.  This was definitely the best Christmas I have ever had as far as gifts/baits go...I honestly feel a little guilty (only a little  ;))

Sweet!  It is definitely peace of mind knowing you are fishing with the best.  Is this your first high-end setup?  With an elite combo, even on slow days it is just a pleasure to fish with.  I remember when I purchased my first Loomis/Chronarch combo, not only did the weight and feel of the combo blow me away, but I would grin every time I looked down at what was in my hand.

Yep, this is my first high end combo. I can't wait to get it and try it out. I really feel that I bought a mindblowing combo. I can't wait to feel the difference between the new combo, and the old one I was fishing, which was a Shimano Spirex 2500RE paired with a 6' 6", MH BPS Bionic Blade. I have my eyes set on a new baitcasting combo now. I am going to get a G.Loomis MBR844C GLX Mag Bass Rod and pir it with a Shimano Calais CL200A. But it will take me a substantial amount of time...probably 3 months to 4 months to save up for the rig.

Looks good...All my rods are Loomis except for my two spinning rods, which are Avids.  I just couldn't replace them; they have caught hundreds of bass and I don't feel they lack anything.
