I have some old Zebco's on old stiff rods that are collecting dust...

If you can make your way to Lakeville during a weekday or Saturday, you can have all 3 of them.

what are you looking for? From your posts it sounded like you were all set up in your discussions, just wondering what you are in need of?

jigs.

i never know what to get or color or anything like that.

And all of my raps aren't the greatest.

they're all pretty old and don't make as much noise/movement as the newer stuff.

but yeah i have all the stuff but just not enough of it.

-only have 4-5 bottom bouncers

-not many spinners

-just not much accessories for the lindy rigs like beeds, swivels, etc.

well as far as colors I have every combination that may or may not work in the smallest sizes up to 3/8oz...I know when I started out I could barely fill a 3 compartment tackle box, but with experience and time and hard work I have been able to add to my arsenal, good luck on your search, sounds like you have everything you need. My rule of thumb was if I couldn't catch fish on my starter stuff, tackle, line, rods, reels, ect...the newer, possibly better, and high end stuff was certainly not going to help...not sure how many folks on here are willing to give stuff away, but you may also want to check c list as there is a free section there

Pretty much what you need is a decent rod, some weights, hooks and line. You should be able to catch fish with that. Right now is a hard time of year to fish. In the next few weeks it's going to start picking up. We trolled a ton of different cranks this weekend and didn't have a ton to show. Tried riggin' and jiggin' and not much there. Just a bunch of tight lips. The biggest suggestion I would have for you is to buy a little at a time, look for used items (I know Matt Johnson has good used cranks pretty cheap on the for sale forum) and see what works for you.

Ask for tackle or sports store gift cards for Christmas, Birthday and whatever. You can build a great arsanal with that.

Send me a e-mail and Ill send you some spinners I make up. Pull them behind a bottom bouncer at .80-1.5mph and you will catch fish. walleyes4me32@aol.com

I have quite a few cranks most with little or no use from my walleye days. I would be happy to give some to you. Where would you like me to send them ?

    • Three favorites at the moment.  By the time they upload, I may change my mind.
    • A few from Maplewood State Park on April 16th.  Non-professional, but they stood still long enough for me to get 'em.
    • You might be able to figure things out this week.  How big is your sump basket?  Is the  pump kicking in now?  Sit there for 15 minutes and count the number of times it cycles.  That should give you a decent idea on how much water is coming in.  Then figure out about how high the water has to go before it flows by gravity.  The spec for the pump will say something like that it can pump 2,000 gph at 10 feet of lift.  (the gph drops dramatically the higher it has to pump the water).  The answer to your specifics will give you an idea of how big of a pump you need.  If you match the size of the pump as close as possible to the amount of water your will face you can maximize the amount of time the battery backup will last.   Faced with this problem I took a standard boat sump pump and modified it so I could hook up a garden hose.  The I took an old shop extension cord and wired the pump so I could hook it up to a car in the garage.  So just prior to having Noah float by I could hook things up in the garage and be good to go for as long as I had gas in the car to pump up the battery.   Now that I am adult I bought a generator and wired the house to take care of things.
    • Inevitably at least twice each season I will leave the house, drive 45 minutes and walk some of my favorite grouse spots for hours and hours, seeing nothing.  Admitting defeat on that day, I will drive 45 minutes back home, only to find a covey of birds in the driveway...
    • Colonel E.H. Taylor Small Batch Maker's Maker's 46 Bulleit Glenmorangie Highland Single Malt   Copperwing Distillery in St. Louis Park has a nice smooth whiskey. Supposed to introduce a new bourbon in a couple weeks too.
    • Hey featherslayer, you gonna register that nice bird of yours pretty soon?
