Lure buying addiction-what to do with them all?

Recommended Posts

Many if not all of us,especially me,I go to a tackle shop and just going to look. Well I end up buying good quality lures that I will never use or need. Embarrased(sp) to say how many,but is there a place you can sell,swap or auction lures and other tackle off? Think there would be a good secondary market someplace?

The bay, or what's his name's list. Or here on HSO for that matter.

Last year I decided to sell off all of my excess equipment, rods, reels, cranks, spoons, line, sonars, etc. I put an ad on c-list and my email exploded. Sold everything I had in a couple of weeks. I liked c-list because its basically local and the delivery and money exchange is simple (no mail or delay) The best selling items I had were my crank baits which all sold for close to invested dollar. The downside to c-list is you need to be available for responders to see the stuff and there are lots of low-ballers. HSO auto changed my reference to SEA ---you know what

Frank (Surface Tension) puts on a sportsmans swap meet every year in Twig. If sure you could move a lot o stuff there.

You could also end up finding some other stuff you can't live without.

Details in the Duluth forum.

Once a year I clean out all my tackle that I don't think I will use anymore. This includes rods, reels, plastics, crank baits, hooks and sinkers. I bring them in to work, put it on the lunchroom table and let the guys have at it. If there is anything left, I will find a Cub Scout troop to donate it to. I have the resources to replenish every year. Feels good to pay it forward.

Back about 10 years ago I walked into a GM that had a half-off of clearance sale. Just so happened they had Rapalas on clearance for 2 bucks! So I bought 1100 of them. Cleaned them out. Only $1100! Since I paid with a credit card, it took an hour to print out both receipts..

Had about 5000 crankbaits at one time around then as I scooped up all the deals I could find. Then I sold most of them in hsolist and financed a tournament fishing habit...

Have a few hard to find colors laying around here somewhere.

    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
    • I ripped a hole in one of my favorite pairs of fishing shorts just need a decent sized patch to cover her up
    • I am not sure what happened either but we lost all of the posts last couple days not just this thread. And it looks like the same thing happened over on FM site as well. I know the site was down last night while I tried look at it.
    • We had no problems but only brought 10 extra gallons over.  We fished 5 days, pretty much running wherever we wanted and ended with 7 gallons remaining in the boat.  So, we burned 30 gallons of fuel in a 1785 Lund with 90 hp Mercury 4 stroke.   I thought that was pretty good!
    • Seems to me that we are missing an entire page from this thread that was here yesterday.... what gives?
