Have seven or eight rubber maid type container in the garage that came out when I sold my boat. Tried to give to a high school team but no one came to get them. Still looking for someone that can use them. (mostly plastics).

I will take it all. I do the high school classes at my house and will have several teams per year to go through my program. All Plastics will be sent off for custom hand pouring of the plastics to be given to the kids. Several lure packs will also be given to College teams that take the course.

- I need large amounts of light colored plastics.
- They are melted down.
- There are 15 different plastics that will be poured from your used baits.

Please PM. me if you would like to help. I will see that they are poured into baits that will catch fish and given to the younger generation.


Each person you work with holds some promise to your future success.

Cody Klapper the owner of possum kingdom tackle was talking to me the other day about having like a free kid grab a bait type thing in his store. Im going to donate some poles and baits. That way there is something special about a kid catching a fish on a bait they picked out then they are hooked.

I posted a add for a few cheaper rods and reels and a 12 year old boy wanted me to meet up with him so he could buy one.. It was quite the hassle cus him mom was a real pos and he would set a time place and she flaked. Eventually she got him to a gas station to meet up and I gave him two rods reels and ALL my misc stuff I didnt want at that time, basically a garbage back full. Hopefully it means something to him. Three days later his mom texted me thanking me.....

I posted the add because if you post free theres a line of people wanting it to try and sell. I had the rod reels at 10 each, they were bass pro carbonlites.

I bought almost 2 garbage bags at a garage sale few years ago, took it to the kid event the next weekend, dumped it on the ground and told kids to have it all. One of the most rewarding things i ever did. Im about to go thru my stuff and donate a bunch, and a few reels at the next kid event. My daughter and i look forward to it annually.

If you fish long enough you will end up down the road wishing you had a lot of those baits. I still have a few baits from over 20 years ago like the old Sensations I still have that I pull out on an occasion and still catch fish with them. A Lake Fork Tackle CrawTube has always been my go to bait that I still use and luckily when they were still producing them I loaded up and still have enough bags to last me for quite a while. No copy of the bait works for me quite as good for some reason and I have some in a particular color that I cannot get anywhere else.
