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 ?

    • Shame on you for questioning  these great and wonderful plans.  Have you no faith?  Besides it's pure nonsense.  She made a lot of claims that her plans would not add anything to the deficit or debt   But we have heard those same claims many times over.  It's a mystery why people still believe that everything is going to be funded through just simply raising taxes on people making over $250,000 a year just because "their " candidate said so When a candidate comes up with more spending ideas and tells you that the "rich" are going to be the ones that are going to fund them ,what they really mean is they're  going to fund them through printing and borrowing. They just use accounting tricks and schemes to hide the cost but I prefer math   Personally, I prefer any candidate I were to support tell us how they're going to get us out of this fiscal mess we're in    
    • I agree he should not have been playing in the world cup.
    • Im going to run my Elite 5 on the dash also, soley as my gps. So that will free up space on the Garmin for the side imaging...Now I cant wait for spring to try out all the new toys haha....I've always heard Garmin were really nice I just never saw any of their units that had the features I wanted and were in my $$ range.. I think I'll be really happy with it...Im curious how the preloaded maps are that come with it (lakevu??) I think its called. It would be sweet if it would take my Garmin upper midwest fishing guide chip, but I doubt it does.
    • I don't think it will adhere to the surface very well under 50 degrees.  Especially on the bottom, it could create some real problems if it doesn't stick very well!
    • Sure wakes ya up when nodding off and that reel goes ZINGGGG!!
    • lol sugar coat it all you want Nick the Gophers are a 7th best team in the Big 10 period. They don't have a meaningful win this entire season and they didn't beat any other team in the big 10 with a winning record except for Northwestern who are 5-4 in conference play but 6-6 overall. That isnt trolling at all, its facts.   I hope they can recruit by selling a trip to the Holiday Bowl this year. Big things happening for the Gophers!
    • that sounds great!!!  they were good pictures too!
    • I use the same set up and I think it's the only way to go.
