Have reels, that you own, that you have never caught a fish with...

Have rods ,that you own, that you have never caught a fish with....

Have baits you bought and simply have never used....

Me ? I have three reels that have never caught a fish, four rods that have never set a hook, and countless dozens of bags of plastics that I have never opened, nor intend to try.

I ask this, because today I won my 50th tourney. This morning I told myself I was going to "slurge" on a new rod and reel if I won. I went to academy and bought a new rod.....and $100 worth of baits. I got home and was like"what am I gonna I get to use this rod for?" And baits? Three more frogs....in the same colors that I already have....and more worms in colors that I actually was out of. Green pumpkin. I have zillions of colors I never use.

.....is there a three step program for guys like me?

All my rods and reels have caught fish but plenty of lures that "caught" me and have never seen water.

The first step is admitting you have a problem. I admitted it long ago. Screw the next step.

I have boxes of tackle I have never used. I usually donate it to the hs kids once a year. Do you really count how many workingmans you’ve won and 10 boat tourneys? You must be a legend in your neighborhood! If we ever meet I may get you to sign a crankbait or something.

I have reels in unopened boxes, not cheap ones but semi top of the line, Garcia Revo MGX's and Shimano's.
Rods- couple of Ducketts unused that seemed like a good idea at the time. Should've stuck to my Loomis and St.Croix.

The Tackle Monkey is hard to overcome, I have actually been selling vs. buying lately........actually just so I feel better when I order a new Power Tackle rod next week... it’s a disease for sure!

Got 10 baitcasting rod and reels and 3 spinning rigs and I ain't buying anymore. I've also got a golf habit to support. I woulda thought you'd of posted some pics of your 50th win. You know up on the podium holding your catch like Van Dammit does. That's quite an accomplishment no matter what circuit you fish.
