    When you open random boxes in the basement and find stuff you vaguely remember purchasing.

    I have that same problem. I'll be in the basement looking for something non-fishing related then I come across a bag of new lures & it's like Christmas in July all over again. :D

    After the third box I told myself it's all Justin's fault.

    When I had my surgery and couldn't get out, online shopping was all I could do. Still finding unused stuff all over the house. At least this year my money can go for more trips as I have plenty of lures now.

    That is so funny,:lol::lol::lol::lol::lol:

    I was taking care of the Snow Shovel's. and roof rake for the season.

    Getting them up into the attic of the garage.
    Hey, I have a Turkey Deep Fryer, Hey I have a smaller propane one as well? When/Where did I get that....???

    Hey, there are two more tackle box's, the net I was looking for last year as well.

    Hey, That's where my other hunting boots went, & all my extra gun cases after I bought the safe.

    In my defense though, there are no lights, and I have to use flashlight to look around.....

    I just moved into our new house and when u was boxing up my rods I found 2 new loomis's and was like, when did I buy these lol.
     
  10. I am new to this fishing thing and you guys aren't helping any, my biggest fear is materializing. In the past when ever I walked through Bass Pro and saw all of those lures I was always thankful I didn't fish. But, if it doesn't warm up soon I am going to sink my little boat with all of the tackle I have bought online waiting for spring. I am already on a second tackle box and have additional Plano boxes with stuff in them.

    Why do the lures I don't own, always look better than the ones I do own?

    Same reason you see more pretty girls when you are with your wife or girlfriend.
