My gosh I wish I had half that many. I can't afford that I don't have that many baits put together. Iv got 6 combos and probably 60 baits altogether. Pm me for my address if you need a place to store them.

I used to buy anything that looked pretty also. Then I realized certain brands/colors work best. After selling off 1/2 of my "catches fisherman, not fish" baits and using that money to buy what I know works, I now half the baits to fumble around with and catch more fish than I did back then.

I know exactly what you are talking about....
Think I'm going to go thru them and
Sell a bunch
I have had the same bandit model 700 tied on the same rod for 3 years now.
All I do is change line and tie it back on.
I have 2 good lure retrievers though.

I keep a few Plano 3700 boxes full of cranks maybe 20 or so, in each with my favorites and replace as needed.

I went through mine a couple years ago and downsized what I keep in my boat. Donated some to some needy anglers, and the ones that I treasure,(Daddy and Papaw lures), made a display of. Now only keep about 5 plano boxes of crankbaits handy.

Well now, something I know a little about. LOL. I have over 1500 CBs, about 200-300 NIB, but a lot of those are the old Poe's, still made in America in the fish packaging. Bought those when BPS put some competitors out of business in DFW area. Sold at $2 each. I do not know HOW MANY 3600 and 3700 boxes full I have, but quite a few. I have 4 special boxes, though, that I carry to T's and such. One is all wooden baits, some Poe's, Stanford and D-baits, about 25 or so. One is for my high dollar baits, you know $15-25 or up baits. Then 2 are for the baits that David Fritts calls his $1000 baits, those he wouldn't sell for $1000 a piece. Those that just work better than others and dive quicker, deeper, run straighter, etc.. I have 35 of those, and I have biven away 3 in the last 5 years. Whenever I open a new one, I am hopeful that it is going to be THE ONE CB that works better than the others. But, seldom, is it that ONE!!!!! Good subject. Hope this helps. Tight lines, keep safe and good luck.

I've got too many too. I tried to inventory mine earlier in the year, I got to 600 and wasn't half way thru. I had to stop. It was going to take forever.
