Yeah I'd say I'm well past the addiction phase. I can't seem to ever leave Sportsman Warehouse without dropping any less than $20-30.
Looking at my credit card bills all you see are entries from tackle stores.
Matt's not helping either.....he keeps pointing out good baits to try. My tackle box is full of plastics now. Some that I haven't even tried.
My wife is getting into it also. She likes to pick out the pretty bait colors most which haven't produced any fish. Then she nags on me to take her to catch some Largemouth. She almost had one near Cook Park but she failed to set the hook. She is still in the lead this summer for the number of fish caught!
