I assume you don't have very much to fish with as of now if 5 dollars is a big deal for lure shopping.

If I didn't have any bass lures and only 5 bucks to spend, this is what I would get at Wal Mart.

1. 99 cent chartreuse/white spinner bait.

2. bullet weights.

3. worm hooks, 3/0 the cheapest I could find

4. whatever bag of worms you can afford with the rest.

I'm pretty sure you can get that list for just about 5 dollars.

If not, try to find a dollar store like Freds. Some of them sell fishing lures. You should be able to find cheaper stuff there.

Seems a bit harsh there Bassmaster. If he wants to try and get by on $5 for tackle then more power to him. I'm sure there are a lot of people out there throwing $20 lures with little skill or thought about what they're doing (and catching few fish). And a lot of people getting  by happily with cheaper gear.

I don't think that fishing has to cost much money

bassmaster if I spent 30$ daily and went fishing once a week I would spend 120$ :o I could buy a new reel for that much

Think about it

30 each day I fish. You have got to be kidding. Last year alone I fished 228 days that doesn't include the ones I forgot to log in. That's 6240$ if my math's correct. I would be a hobo after that. Because my wife would kick me out of the house and divorce me and take everything I had and that would be it for fishing. That's just bad economics.

Grubber if you can go to Wally World and pick up something that works for you for under 5 bucks I say great for you. You are better than me.

You can get alot of stuff for 5 bucks. Usually around here tackle stores have jig bodies priced at 4 for a buck and jig heads 4 for a buck. So...technically, you could walk out with 20 items for 5 bucks...not bad.

What he said but more in depth:

1. 99 cent chartreuse/white spinner bait.

2. bullet weights.

3. worm hooks, 3/0 the cheapest I could find (south bend EWG) cheap!

4. whatever bag of worms you can afford with the rest. (6" Renegade worms, Purple/blue or Tequila Sunrise) - $1.50

There it is folks!!!!  :)

ok, so i was being too harsh, its just that 5$ just sounds way to "limited" to me if you're tryin to catch qaulity bass.  i was kidding about spending 30$, i would actually spend about 10-20 dollars for each trip  ( or more if i'm goin to stay for the weekend)! :P ::)
