    Each weekend I become more and more of a fisherman... I find myself spending about 50 bucks a week on tackle. Some doesn't work and is pointless, but it got me thinking. What is in other peoples tackle box? Right now the three best lures I have are a

    1.) Spinning minow

    2.)Rapala Jointed floating

    and
    3.) Daredevil spoon

    Sometimes I wish cabelas wasn't 20 mins away :doah:

    Plenty of that stuff in mine, plus some pop gear for trolling the koke's, the occasional plastic worms and grubs for bass and walleye, and just recently started picking up large spoons (like the Daredevle) in the hopes of hooking a nice Northern Pike.


    I thought I had lost my entire tackle box, which is a large bag with about four different boxes for different lakes/species, turned out my wife had grabbed it off the boat and stashed it in the truck. I did some figuring later that day, I probably have a grand in lures alone.

    I've grown to be a big fan of the Johnson's sliver minnow when I'm not casting flies........

    It's always more fun to hook 'em on something you made.

    BTW: If you can get to Cabelas in 20 minutes from Kalamazoo.... I'm impressed!

    I use a rapala minnow and a rebel crawdad mostly cause I fish the local creeks alot and thats what works. when I go to the lake I have a box full of cranks spinners and plastic worms but mostly only use the plastic worms.

    That should read Tackle Boxes. I have one for trout,one for Bass/warmwatr. 2 boxes for salt water, one box for catfish, Plus my boat has a built in box for watever. I buy a lot of my stuff at the same place i get my tools...Garage sales. I stopped at one last week and bought a big tacl box crammed full of stuff for $10.00

    Mine is set up for trout and northern fish but I decided to send all of it to Fl. the last time down there and a bunch of it works really good in the salt water.
    I caught a big channel cat and a snook behind my house on a rattle-trap.
    Cast masters work good too. I think when I go back next month I will find that some of the hooks have rusted off though :dunno: .
    This one (of many that day) was caught on live bait or shrimp-

    Ah, 20 minutes makes much more sense.
    That's my ex-girlfriend's:angry1: neighborhood over there. Too bad Cabela's wasn't there yet when we were dating.:mad:

    I was just curious because I lived in K-zoo when I was at Western and grew up just west of there.

    Cabela's is a dangerous place! I'm about 40 miles from the one in Buda, Texas. Already been there and we've been here barely a month! :shocked:
