I kind of behaved myself this year. other than two new wiper motors, with bigger arms and blades for the boat. the only new toys I got were 4 Accudepth Plus 47 LC's to retire some old GL 47 LC's. Oh, and a new probe for the Dept Raider to replace the one I lost last trip last year ;(

To be honest with you, I only got a few new things...2 new braided dipsy rigs, 2 wire dipsy rigs, 8 mono dipsy/downrigger rigs, 10 tite loc rod holders, 3 canon dowriggers, couple hundred spoons, 40 or so flies, 30 or so j-plugs, a dozen or so flashers/dodgers, planer board setup, Raymarine rc520, Raymarine l750, vhf radio,....

Oh...and a Trophy 2460...

If only the wife knew how much I have blown in the last 5 months...I would be single again I'm sure! :shock:

A friend took me out for Kings last fall and that started the ball rolling...I am addicted!

"Hi, my name is Draggin Ballz and I have a "King addiction"...."

I'm going to try some of the plastic/rubber swim bait lures this year so I went to Cabela's in Hamburg, Pa. and Wheeling, WV. and dropped several hundred on that stuff. I didn't have any room for more spoons, stickbaits and dodgers.

OMG....I don't know where to start, but you guys are making me feel a lot better. Sounds like a few of you joined the empty pockets club with me.

It all started with a trip to Alabama 5-6 weeks ago to pick up a Sea Ray 240 flybridge with twin I/O's, but it's never been a fishing boat so I'm trying to outfit it the best I can within my means knowing I'll upgrade as time goes on.

Garmin gps

Furuno 667 w/thru hull ducer

2 walker downriggers

Tite loc rod holders & track system

super ski mast & planer board

gutted and customized boat interior

various engine parts

bottom painted boat (Blue Water ablative)

topside painted boat (Interlux)

antifoul painted outdrives (Pettit)

New sunbrella bimini for bridge

New sunbrella aft cover

various sunbrella compartment covers

vinyl boat name........Lucky Enuff

lots of odds & ends

more boat stuff to come (but not to much more the wife says!)

Custom spin docs & flys from Tom (with plenty of Hammer flys thrown in)

15 J plugs

30+ spoons (fishlander, dreamweaver, nk & others)

15 jointed rapalas in 7,9 & 11

10 spin docs w some baby docs thrown in

plenty more to come, no matter what the wife says :lol: )

actually i'm still waiting on them to be deliverd from abu. Pretty much all my non trolling reels (baitcasters)are abu and i have always like there product from what i can see they seem to be a reel nice reel.

i have been using the old quantum 1310's and i really like them just a little heavy and big for casting all day.

i have to say the reel i judge them all against now is a BPS extreme i bought 2 of these last season on cleareance for like 40 bucks. i have to say they are some really sweet reels... i couldn't believe how well they performed for $40. i mean all day throwing spinnerbaits and cranks effortlessly.

What kind of spinning reels are you using????? I have the Okuma Inspira's sweet reels!!!!!
