seems like i spend a small percentage of my check each week on the next lure, color, etc...that i must have for my collection. sometimes i feel like i'm my own tackle evaluation team....from poppers to pencils to needlefish, metal lips, spooks...even storm wildeyes 6"....i have caught fish on everything so far this season.
i guess what i'm bitchin about is that the selection and prices of designer plugs and lures on the market for surfcasters today is out of control....for example i spent 40 bucks on a beautiful football jack bass thumb plug, first of all, i had to put vmc hooks on myself ....and not a bump...meanwhile i spend 20 bucks on a tattoo tackle everlasting eel or sea dog, equipped with vmc hooks out of the package, and non stop action...
dont get me wrong, i wouldn't bitch about the price if it produced.i spent 60 bucks on ebay for a herring pattern beachmaster cowboy because i couldn't get my hands on one any other way...and this plug is absolutely beautiful and deadly....its my "if nothin else is workin, or the fish aint biting plug"....i have even rigged it with an eel skin a few times...and i couldn't keep the fish off of it.
when is enough, enough....lol
i guess when my wife leaves me because i spend more money on fish then her............lol
how do you know if you're spending too much money on a piece of wood?
can you take someone elses opinion on a plug...what might work for you might suck for someone else.
or are you stuck just trying everything out for yourself?
