    Catfishing is a simple sport. Not a lot of lures to buy. Mailny Hooks, sinkers, swivels, floats. My question is if you lost your catfishing tackel bag for what ever reason how much money would it take to replace everything in it ? I swap stuff out in my bag depending on where I am fishing to keep weight down. But I would guess I keep a minimum of $40 up $80 in my bag all the time.

    Well, since, it is in with all of my other fishing stuff, I would say $300 or $400, that is only because there are a lot of lures, knives,etc.

    I usually have other stuff in there too, so it would be a lot. I have my crappie, trout, and northern/walleye stuff in there too. I've been collecting awhile, I lots a box ful 30 years ago, found it in my brother and brother in laws stuff.

    Many many dollars. I'm an oportunistic fisherman. I fish for whatever is biting. One day might be perch, the next time i go out i might crappie fish, the next time might be stripers. All my tackle is in my tackle box. That includes my bass lures (dont really bass fish anymore though), sinkers, hooks, etc, etc, etc. Just too much work to keep moving lures and terminal tackle back and forth. Yes, my tackle box weighs a ton :smile-big:

    I'd say $ 60-70 but only because I have extras of everything. On any given trip I could probably get by with a paper sack with $5 tackle in it, but where's the fun in that?

    As for me, not very much. There's probably $20 dollars max. I find alot of my stuff at thrift stores and it gets the job done too. Plus, I try not to carry no more than I need.

    Man I just about made myself sick trying to figure what it would cost, I have all my Steelhead, Trout, & cat stuff in one bag, not to mention the lead, knives, pliers, cutters, camera, head lamps, leader line, and a heavy stringer. I came up with figures of $250 for Steelhead, $30 for trout & bait fish, $125 in lead, $25 in swivels & sinker slides, $125 for cat stuff, hooks, dip tubes, beads, punch baits, $100 for the camera, $35 for head lamps, $30 for knives, $45 for cutters & pliers, & $75 in line. Damm that bag is stuffed, it would make me Seriously Ill if I lost that bag or had it stolen. Not to mention the other 2 bags, 1 with bass & crappie stuff & 1 with my bobbers, extra spools, bells, glowsticks, & scale

    Crap i have 11 plastic boxes in all 3 bags + the line box, & stuff crammed in every pocket, plus I have about 15 jars of Power Bait dough for trout, not to mention the 4 small tubs of secret 7 in the shed. I did get a flavor baster that seems to work well for squirting the paste in the tubes, just had to take the needle holder off, got a high class one on sale for $3.00 at Walmart, the tip screws off.

    I'm like you Ed, I have two bags, my main one never leaves the vehicle, I have one of those belt butt bag things that hold my cat gear. Hooks, lead, small bobbers, pliers, salt, rubber bands, beads, swivels, and fishing regs. I learned a long time ago not to carry all my eggs in one basket. I used to carry a Plano six tray, and upset it once right on the bank, what a mess that was. I supply my bag for the night from my van with what I think I'll need, so the cost wouldn't be anything for me, I' just go back an resupply! lol Now if I lost my bag all together my loss would be minimum, say $ 20.00 with out the cost of the belt of course.

    I'd guess I could replace my tackle box for 40.00 or less,I don't have much,just the basics,and there's some stuff I could live without that is costly,like a 30.00 digital scale,I wouldn't want to live with out it but could if need be.

    Who said fishing was cheap!

    Cigarettes, drinks, and snack will cost $20 each time.

    Losing a tackle bag would bite!

    If I lost all my terminal tackle right now I would be out maybe $40. My supply is in bad shape. I will probably spend a few hundred bucks getting back to normal soon.
