I used to think they wouldn't be worth it. Then...... I watched a fellow TNDeer member outfish me 10 to 1. We were both throwing similar baits, except his cost $16 and mine cost $5. I was a believer. He gave me one of his baits and I started catching fish.
was it a $16 spoon?

Nope, this thing was made of an even cheaper material called plastic!!!

It's hard to understand why so many pay so much to fish for something they don't keep. But, as they say, fat chicks need lovin' too.

I tell everyone I take with me to use one of my lures so they will catch more fish. Some learn the hard way. \:\)

We gotta head back up there and catch some more.

$17.00 is nothing compared to the cost of the boat, gas, tackle, tournament fees, hotels, ect. If it will catch fish people will pay it. When the A-rig was hot I sold 6 for $100.00 each in 6 minutes on ebay. Fishermen, myself included are as bad as crackheads sometimes.

I pay more on gas for the truck and boat than I do on tackle. And it doesn't even burn as much gas as many people's rigs

I got a Strike King Wake Shad at BPS with a gift card. It was around $20 bucks. It was the only thing I got that day. I left it on the top of the car. It fell off when I made the turn at Smokies ballpark. I saw it fall of and went back to get it. Someone ran over it while I was standing there waiting for a break in the traffic. Went back in and spent my own money on another. It made it home. I have caught some big smallmouth on it over the past few years. Well worth it to me.
