A good assortment of NED rig heads and soft plastics.  I've enjoyed adding the NED rig to my bass fishing arsenal.  OH

My approach to gift cards is to buy stuff I wouldn't be buying anyways with my own money. 

Or, add it to a big ticket purchase that I'm reluctant to buy because of price.

Do you have a pic of one of these rigs?  Am i correct that you are cutting the tail off your soft plastic and adding a spinner blade in its' place?  Is mono connected at one end and the speed clip and then run through the bait before adding the spinner blade at the tail end?  I don't really ever fish for bass, but, this has me very interested in this rig.  Might be a killer on the big heavily fished bass in a very small pond near my office.

Think back what you needed right away from a bait shop....

 

Maybe purchase something to catcheck your own bait.

 

Rod tip repair.

 

You have rough terminal tackle.  Spare fishing line.

 

If you like using live eels,  maybe get some sluggos.   

 

Also, we might be fishing back bays more for awhile if beaches and boat launches are closed.

 

 

Myself.....   spare prop cause I go through them.

Note:  If you buy split rings, buy a split ring pliers.  I have found that they really help and save my fingernails,  :banghd:

I have a few different sizes of split ring pliers and they do help.

You are suffering from the "NOT ENOUGH TACKLE VIRUS".  Little subliminal voices from fishing videos on Youtube are telling you need this brand artificial bait, rigs, rods, reels etc. "Resistance Is Futile" quit your job and Bruise the credit card until they come and take you away.

Sounds like a DIY Dartspin, complete with a plastic mix that melts everything else it touches.  @scoobydoo any chance you could show it off in your next vid?

The more you spend looking at stuff the more you buy. I sold off a bunch of gear at the beginning of the season, because, I either didn’t use it ot didn’t need it, and the remainder was all I needed for a good season.

Then after being home a week due to stupid Coronavirus, I bought a few things, then I didn’t have enough. I’m trying to figure out how the heck Coronavirus wrecked the economy when I’m buying more than I bought last year. It’s not just me.

Before buying anything, maybe we should ask “what would I buy if I couldn’t shop online.”
