What's your Best Deal Ever?

Recommended Posts

St. Croix Legend Elite 76MHF and Curado D for free.

Work colleague switched to fly fishing and sold all his equipment.  I got lucky and he found another rod and reel much later which he just dropped in my office with one word, enjoy.

Would have to be my boat, its a early 90's Nitro but it looks like NEW!! Nothing wrong with it at all!! got it couple years ago for just under $4000 the guy that had it only had it in the sun WHILE fishing, and he only fished occasionally. The rest of the time it was up on a boat lift with the cover on. ;D

Mine would have to be some Yo Zuri shallow crankbaits. They retail for 9.95. Bass Pro Online screwed up and marked them for .95. So I bought 15 of them. And they are catching machines.

Mine would be the boats I have right now.  My mother in law handed me the title to the jon boat and said enjoy it since they didn't use it.  While at my father in laws house one day we were out looking at his Quantum Fish and Ski and he handed me the keys and said use it for the grandkids.  He hasn't signed the title over to it but it's been in my driveway for almost a year now. I'm very grateful for my in laws!

A free john boat 14' on a trailer, my bass boat 17' hydra sport bass boat with johnson 110 on a trailer for 800 bucks.  My power pole set up a Abu-Garcia EXT on a Quantum Tour Grade PT pole, retail on the set would be around 300 bucks I have less than a 100 bucks and they were new when purchased.  I try my best to get the most quality for my money.

Got a Symetre that as far as I could tell had never been on a rod off of Craigslist for $40.  BPS had their Extreme Rods on sale for $60 one time, I had a save $10 on any item over $50.  I had $40 in gift certificates. Basically got a rod that retails at $100 for $10 out of pocket.

I matched the Extreme Rod with teh Symetre.  Basically a $200 combo after taxes for $50.  Thought that was pretty good.

I got 2 St Croix Triumphs w/ Diawa capricon reels for $25 dollars a piece at Dicks Sporting goods. They had been priced wrong. The retail was supposed to be $159.99 and were supposed to be onsale for $114.99.

That's my best deal ever.

My 14" jonboat complete with trolling motor,and battery. Plus the trailer. $600.00

Here's how it went down: My wife knew I was looking for one. She comes home one day and says "I saw one of those boats across the street from my cousin's house" So I go to check it out, it's in great shape. The guy walks out front to talk to me, I'm expecting to hear there's no title or something like that that turns into a hassle later with DMV. Turns out he has titles for boat and trailer.

I ask how much, he says $600. I said "sold". He took the sign down while I went to the bank. After he signed the titles over, I asked him why he let it go for so cheap. He started laughing and told me his wife was divorcing him and he was anticipating a nasty battle. He was selling everything out from under her as fast as he could so there would be less for her to take from him. Oh well ;)

If man were smart he would just put everything owned in the wife's name to begin with. She's gonna end up with all of it anyway. Saves the hassle of having to pay in the courtroom.

Mine's gotta be a Passenger Console for my Ranger - Ebay for $.99 +shipping! 99 Cents for a console that would have cost me about a grand from the dealer. I only had to order some gel coat from Ranger and paint it. All told, i figure i got about $140 in it. Best of all, the wife is very happy when we're going light speed across the lake. ;D
