Remember fishing being so high dollar maybe it was because I used to make big bucks. But I cringe now when I shop baits.

went through that after I retired. They say there's no inflation but the crankbaits I were buying for $4 are now $7. I went back to fishing with minnows and cheap jigs. Catch just as many fish.

I could retire on what I've spent on crankbaits and soft plastics alone in my lifetime.

Now, I fish with 3 different jigs 99% of the time.

Yep, most baits are for catching the fisherman! eeks

That's why I use them cheap plastic crappie baits, and probably catch just as many as the next person.

Happy July 4th weekend to all! bouncy cheer
