    Hey Kevin!

    Rick -McGolfer- lives by this motto!

    I'll search the archives, but GS or MrBill once posted a pic of their tackle closet.
    It was similar to that first pic, but in color!:eek:

    Ragman,
    That was me with the pics of a closet. I think I deleted it for fear someone would rob me. As far as I know it could be empty.:confused: I haven't seen that closet for 10 months. :( I'm embarrassed to say how much money has been wasted in condo fees, insurance, and property taxes in that time period. I haven't spent one stinking night in the place in 10 months. I'm only 3 hours from the place and I can't get away. Way to much work and health issues with family to deal with at this time.

    I've now taken over one bedroom at home with new fishing and hunting gear. :D A couple of weeks ago, my wife went into that bedroom to look for some extra wrapping paper she stored in the closet. She hasn't been in that bedroom for over a year. It took me thirty minutes just to clear a path to the closet for her. I'm not in trouble because she thinks a fishing rod and reel cost about 20 bucks.:D

    $20 rods and reels? How can you guys afford that expensive stuff? My Zebco 33 works just fine.

    Since I will be relocating the tackle in this particular closet in a couple of days, here are some pics of some $20 rod and reels. You can't steal it if you don't where it is kept.:D Keep in mind that this closet is 12 feet by 3 feet deep. I ran out of room inside the closet and started using the back of the door. You are only seeing the first 4 feet.:eek: God knows what I'm going to find by the time I get to the rear of the closet. I hope I can get it all in the back of a pickup in one load.

    Trust me, I have other area's that I store tackle and they aren't as organized. If fact, I have no idea where a full set of 3 speed Fin Nors are kept:eek: The bedroom I have been filling up is out of control. I don't even take stuff out of the original boxes anymore.

    There are some people out there that have serious tackle problems. I've seen tackle rooms with over 500 different rods and reels. I'm just an average guy that needs more space.

    If fact, I just remembered that I left the stuff in the picture below in GS's ulitimate milkcrate a couple of months ago. I hope he didn't toss any of it overboard. :eek:

    That's a Zenaq B60H Monster Buster jigging rod with a Torque 300. Probably the strongest jigging rod I've ever put in my hands. I think it could withstand 35 pounds of drag. See Pic below with 17 pound load. It barely bent the rod.

    I have fishing envy!!!!!!!!! I usually been out 20 times by the time July hits. I need to wet a line before I go nuts. I will be at the coast at least 4 times in the next 10 days. All one day trips. Not one will be a fishing day. Don't have time.

    I guess you haven't read the new rule book. The last rule states: If you leave tackle behind for more than 30 days, it becomes property of person in possession.:D Thanks for new tackle. I'm in Kingsville tonight, I'll call you tomorrow and catch up.

    I'm a fanatic when it comes to protecting tackle. That's why I always ask questions like "How many rod holders are on the boat?" I will not take a rod on board unless it has a dedicated rod holder. By dedicated I mean a real rod holder, not a make shift light duty rod holder. It has to be welded on or through bolted. I will not put my tackle in those plastic milkcrates that can slide or fall over. I never lay tackle on the deck or stand them up leaning in a corner of a boat. I also keep as much tackle as possible at the coast.

    I also don't loan out tackle unless I'm on the boat. I also clean soak all my lures in warm soapy water after each trip. I do this in the kitch sink or bath tub if I have a bunch to clean. Every lure is then hung up to dry and all hooks are resharpened before re-entering the storage closet.
    Hauling them back and forth causes dings and rashes. You should see how long it takes me to load up a boat with my tackle. I don't grab four at a time and scratch them up. One in each hand, with as many trips it takes to get it done. While on the boat, I'm always looking for tips hitting each other and rods hopping out of the gimbal on the rod holder. When transporting to and from the boat, I put protective neophreme covers on all the reels.

    After fishing, I spend at least four hours cleaning and retying every single bimini and replace every swivel. That way, when I come next time, it's ready to go. Each rod has it's place in a holder that will not touch another rod while in storage. I also keep three quarts of damp rid in my storage places. They keep the moisture to a minimum. I also keep it dark as possible to keep the mono from ultra violet light. It also keeps the light color rods from fading. I also replace all my line at least two times a year. I buy the five pound spools of different tests.
