One or Two ...

Recommended Posts

When you guys by a crankbait, spinnerbait or other lures that are sold individually, how do you purchase them (referring to one bait/color)?

A) Only buy one

:D Always buy two in case they are really good and you loose one

C) Buy more than two

I've always been the guy that will pick up two identical baits/colors, and never ever purchase just one ... as it maybe working great one day and if I loose it to a snag or a pike I want a back up until I can get more.

What say you?

I have two different situations.

If I have heard great things about them or my fishing buddy has used the bait then I will pick up two since I already know they work.

If it is just something I see and want to try I will pick up just one.  Then if it's great I'll pick up more.

But, sometimes I just load up no matter what   ;D

If it's a lure that I've heard/read good things about, I'll usually buy 2-4 but in different colors.

If it's something that I find moderately interesting, like the Ima Roumba, I'll only buy one until I see how well it works for me.

Just one at a time! Unless it is plastic baits, then the sky is the limit!

I always start with one. Ive bought so many exspensive crankbaits and buzz baits that would barely wobble or stay afloat that I learned to try before you overbuy.

If it's a bait that I am buying for the first time I only buy one most of the time, never more then two, but if it's one like say the Cordel Big O of which I have caught a ton of bass on I will buy 5 to 10 of each color I like for I know I will use them plus with that many on hand I don't worry so much about getting them hung up. Keep in mind however I rarely spend more then 5 bucks for one crankbait. As long as them less then 5 dollar Big O's, Rattle Traps, Bandits and so forth keep producing I have no interest in 15 dollar cranks. I may spend 10 bucks on a frog, but I know I am not going to lose that unless Mr. Pike rips it up.

I hear what your saying though, buy two just in case, but just in case usually means it will be sitting in my tackle box taking up space for 10 years. LOL

Seeing how most everything I get I have to order from somewhere, I always buy at least 2.

I never just buy a lure for the heck of it.  I always buy lures that I know will produce.

In such cases it depends where I need to pick up the certain lure.  

If the place only has 5, I will buy all 5.  If they have a bunch, I buy as many as I can afford at the time.  

But I usually buy several of the good uns' just so I have lots of extras for when one breaks, or gets snagged.

I usually buy a couple in different colors. If I hear of a hot bait on this board like the Red Eye shad I will pick up several.

Brought a tear to my eye, I sure miss fishing with my boy...

I used to buy two of everything for the same reason.

After years of accumulation, I now only buy new baits/ lures that

are highly recommended by people I know or trust. I'm not very

good at actually fishing the lures I have, so buying just one new

plug is enough.

It depends. A lot of guys touched on it all ready.

New, just to try = one

Rumored to be hot = two

produced for me = two or more

couldn't keep them off it day before tourny = everyone they have

The first time, I always buy one of everything. If I like it, I'll load up.

Typically, I'll just buy one. Sometimes, if I can't decide on a color, I'll buy one of each color.

I usually start with one, if it's a crank usually I'll pick up at least 2 different colors that I have a lot of confidence in. This is how I started with the Lucky Craft RC series & Jackall Muscle Deep. The RC has proven it self to be a 5 star bait in my mind, after using them about 3 years I now have app 30 or so in different sizes and colors. Last year was my first with the Muscle Deep, I really liked them plan on adding a few more before next summer.

I like to buy two most of the time.  I use the 11 year old excuse a lot of the time.  He likes to try and buy his own baits most of the time.  You should see the smile on his face when he catches a bass on his 50 cent spinnerbait he bought at Wal-Mart.
