Cleaned up my garage and ran across a lot of old lures. Some blasts from the past and some flat out wastes of money.

You can't buy your way to big fish & tourney wins, but Lord knows I tried lol! wink

I did a little show and tell during a stroll down memory lane with my son...

Maybe it was me, but I could never get the Mann's Three for All to run well.

Reminds me of the old AC Plug! I threw that a little on Fork back in the late 80's. Think my shoulder is still a little sore now from it! roflmao

GREAT FUN POST TOM!!

Used to smoke em all around the bridge on Big Mustang in the early winter on AC Plugs. 3 - 15 pound bass clobbering 1 - 2 pound gizzard shad! What a blast. Saw Brian Duplechain catch his 14 pounder on one. Still have 2 of em!

My favorite was the Castaic Shad. First hard body head with a soft tail I ever saw. Caught tons of fish on them. Still have a couple of those as well.

I caught my first 8 pound bass on a Dancin eel BrandoA at Lake Fork around 1988 or so. Took it up to Rainswood to have ol crotchety Bill take a picture of it! Went back to let her go and the next cast had a 12 pounder... Grinnel! LOL! Thought I had a giant bass on!

I have 4 or 5 AC plugs that have never been used hanging on a shadow box in my office.
I also was given a box of Helicopter lures with hooks and swivels by a friend many years ago - these are still in my closet sitting beside a Color Collector..

Best purchase was Mann's Black Grape 6" jelly worms.
Worst purchase was every thing else I have bought!

They are all bad. Never caught anything on any I have bought. Someone told me I was doing it wrong. I needed a $500 rod and $300 reel. I'm starting to think they were not being honest. I'll let you know when I find a good one.

That dang Dancin Eel has some incredible action and I have never had one bite on it. Weird.
