Who or What is The Bait Monkey?


Recommended Posts

I have found that an empty wallet(not too hard to come by when you're getting ready for college in the fall :-/) is the only effective defence.

Every college town has a place to donate plasma for money, He will have you donating before long to get the money he needs.

Now we just have to try and figure out how to control him!

That's like saying you're going to control the wind. Not happening. ;)

He strikes at random. He comes when you're least expecting it.

Tom Bass: "I think I'll walk by the hunting and fishing section at Wal-Mart here and not buy anything."

SMOKE APPEARS, THE LIGHTS DIM

Monkey: "What are you doing? Get up and buy 6 chatterbaits, 20 packs of senkos, 30 spinnerbaits, and 5 new rods and reels! Nowwww!"

The bait monkey is strong, but I have willed him away for the time being..... I have a goal, and that goal requires the bait monkey to dieeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!!!  

So, I threw him in front of a semi truck loaded with stuff for BPS.. ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

It's always an interesting question.  I love the responses.   The Bait Monkey is a powerful creature!  The one thing that got him off my back temporarily was when Bass Pro Shop sent me a letter thanking me for being in the top ten percent of their sales during the month of July.  I tell you, that scared the Bait Monkey out of me.

Here's my bait monkey, his name is 'Rasta'

He can tie polomar knots and clinch knots, he can sharpen hooks, and he's pretty darn good at retrieving jigs and crankbaits that I've lost.  I didn't think monkeys could swim, so he's obviously a very dedicated bait monkey.

Ahhh the mighty bait monkey for such a little fellow he sure is a nasty boy...  I used to get it all the time...  Then when I got divorced, everything got confiscated and seemed to disappear...  Actually she got everything and I mean everything.. Including all 30 of my rods.. Very nice pricey things most of them custom expensive things the bait monkey made me buy.. my 1 year old super sweet 20 foot bass rig, and all the tackle I had...  Now I regrettably am forced to start over.. And let me tell you.. It sucks.. But as soon as possible, the bait monkey will get me again..  LOL.. Have a great night all..

PS.. Seeking a fishing partner and a tourney partner in Florida.. Drop me a note...

I have learned a very important thing today. I can not out run my monkey. he tackled me.(fishing humor) I left with $300 dollars of new fishing equiptment i.e.(lures, line, tackle box, soft plastics, leader lines,etc.) The list goes on. I thought i was going insane for buy all of it, because i am very cheap when it comes to buying myself stuff. but now i know that i was not myself. The bait monkey made me do it.  ;D

Gummy,

That's all?  $300?

Let's get with the program.

Fishing season is right around the corner.

$500 or $600 would sound better. ;D

But $300 is a great start to the season.

Da Bait Monkey loves you.

Some fishermen would have you believe that the Bait Monkey is just an imaginary being.

Don't Believe That For A Moment, the Bait Monkey is just as real as Santa Claus!

The Bait Monkey is a go-between, who governs all arbitration between your "desires" and your "better judgment".

I might add however, he's a powerful lobbyist for unrestrained fulfillment, in spite of your better judgment.

I was just thinking of the Presidents stimulus package.If this pases Congress we all could get somewhere between 600 and 1200 dollars.Then the bait monkey could be credited with helping to jump start the economy.

In the music world its called G.A.S.

Gear Acquisition Syndrome.  

I had really bad gas there for a while.

I like this phrase better though.  If your monkey gets too out of control, you may have to have your wife/girlfriend/significant other spank the monkey.  that'll set him straight. ;)
