Probably going to hit it later today. Our pros up here (Chicago) are going to be 4 walleye guys. Guess they should re-name it Walleye Pro Shops.

I remember waiting to meet Jimmy Houston here a few years ago.

Big disappointment this year. :-[

LC RC 2.5 Wakebaits (x2)

Lake Fork Tackle- 10" worms and Tube Craws (6 bags total)

Jewell Eakins Jigs (8)

Red Eye Shad in Chrome SS (2)

Plus it inspired me to reorganize my tackle in the garage for about the 12th time since Fall. I've got to get out of the house and to the lake. One more week!!!

^^can we say crankbait fetish???

LOL. I used to be a hard core jig guy, but now I fish with cranks most of the time. I like to have a variety and try new cranks and cranks other people have had success with on this board. Hence, the Daiwa, Xcaliber and Yo-Zuri Drum lipless cranks.

I'm heading to my closest store in Portage, IN next Friday. We have a few guys going... There's going to be a lot of money and points spent!!!!

I've got over $200 in points and already have about $400 spent in my head. This could get scary really quick.

Well since i have a BPS about 30 minutes away i did decide to stop in and see what kind of deals they had.  there were a few things on sale but no sales on anything i was interested in.  so since i bought some crankbaits prior, i had to buy a *bigger* tacklebox to hold all.  so i did get a BPS bag style tackle box that was on sale for like $25 compared to $40.  I will go back on the 6th of March, they are having a few seminars that id like to see.  so we'll see then what hops in my cart  ;D

I was planning on going tomorrow, I had plans to go tomorrow for the past 2 weeks! Now I find out I can't go. Such a bummer. Jimmy Houston and Woo Daves were gonna be there. I may hit up BPS later on and I plan to get a BPS 7'0 medium crankin' stick then pick up stuff that is on sale.

I went to the one in Foxborough, MA since we were already down there, had to force dad to stop haha. Picked up a nice Daiwa Megaforce 100TSH Casting Reel. They had them for $59.99 on sale since it was the classic. Sits quite nicely on my BPS crankin' stick I bought has year!   :)

Went to Foxboro BPS yesterday picked up 10 LC R. Clunn 3" wake baits, at $11.44 a piece, these were a no brainer for me. Also stocked up on frogs, top water baits, and rage shads. :)

Waiting for the day to pick up some Quick Silver oil from Mercury. I think it is on March 12th.

Met Rondef and justcrazy4bass plus Sydney Bass at the Richmond BPS which was super.

Took pics of Ron and Jason with Woo Daves and Teddy Carr. Hope they post them on the site.

I picked up some coffee scented Rage Tail baits.

Otherwise, I am set for this year, other than for the two G. Loomis rods I will be getting later this month.  :)

Sam, Jason and I enjoyed meeting you and talking to you at BPS yesterday. Thanks for taking the pictures for us, we really appreciate it.

I picked up a Kevin VanDam Signature Series (KVD30A) spinning reel, 10lb XPS flourocarbon line, Stacey King finesse jigs, XPS Laser Eye shallow crankbaits, drop shot weights, coffee scented Rage Tail Lizards and Lobsters and some Strike King Red-Eye Shads.

We attended Woo Daves "Shallow Water Worm Fishing" seminar which I felt he did a great job explaining and demonstrating his techniques. At the end of the seminar Woo did a Q&A session and right before we left Woo signed a new BPS hat that Jason bought.

Here is the picture of Jason, Woo Daves and I.

I have been there three times and I have almost always been able to find what I was looking for.  Yesterday they had all but two items that I was looking for.
