I have many, many bags of soft-plastics that haven't seen the light of day since I bought them. Some were "HOT" baits used years ago that turned out to be not so "HOT"! Some, looked much better on the shelf than on my hook. Some, I had buddies tell me how good they were catching fish for them but my fish didn't like them very much . . . I think you get my point.
I know alot of us get to the ramp early on tournment day and joke around for atleast an hour or so before blast-off. What if we had a small "flea-market" type scenario in the mornings before the tourney started. Where one guy could barter with another on some bags of baits, crankbaits or spinnerbaits, etc.??
After picking up some Pro-Staff positions in 2012 I can only throw certain Verticals. I have many bags of soft-plastics that I can't use now.
How cool would it be if another guy hated a bait that you loved and you hated a bait that he loved and you just swapped baits?
Could this work on tourney day or does anyone else have any ideas that we can run with?? Tks in advance . . . I think cabin-fever is getting to me.
