    Does anyone else worry like me? That you may run out of terminal tackle, hooks, line swivels etc?

    I usually spend the fall and winter stocking up on tons of stuff for next years fishing.

    I bought a few packs of hooks yesterday, but I feel I need much more:big_smile:

    I dont have much money, but when I have plenty of catfishing tackle it makes me feel rich!

    yes Jack I am the same way. I never seem to have enough. I always buy in bulk when possible.just bought 300 jigs for catching bait. then I had to buy more 3" curly tails than jigs. Its a never ending addiction. We won't even start on fishing poles. There will be some for sale really soon as i wont have anywhere to store them.:big_smile:

    I used to be that way with rods and reels, especially abu reels.

    I think I have about 20 outfits right now, and I cant afford to buy more or I would:big_smile:

    But I can afford to buy hooks, and line and stuff, so I just go overboard on that!:big_smile:

    You're wasting big bucks with those itty bitty bags of Gamakatsu hooks. Buy them in bulk from Wild Wolf for the best deal. He has the 50 pack at a great price.

    Jack,

    I've bought around 100 Gama Oct Circles in the las couple months, but I'm doing a lot cheaper than you! YOu need to buy the 25 packs, they usually come out quite a bit cheaper than buying the small packs!

    Swivels... I've also been stocking up on SPRO Swivels. I think I;ve gotten a couple hundred or more of those recently too. (Don't worry I'll share w/ you!) :smile2:

    Sorry I should have read your post before I replied. Those are some good prices ($22) on the 50 pack Gama Oct hooks.

    i like to stock up over the winter, it gives me something to do besides just stare at my fishin poles, i like to be stocked up for the spring and then i don't have to worry about runnin out of tackle half way thru the season

    I'm the same way Jack. Even if I head to BPS with a friend, I always buy 2 - 3 - or 4 bags of hooks. :smile2: I have so many 8/0 Gamakatsu Circle hooks it's scary. Now I'm starting to stock up on JHooks and Octopus hooks.

    How do those Daiichi hooks treat you?

    i was going to suggest the same thing, or you can set up a Paypal account for free and use that one most websites including ebay and the like. it's also very safe and takes the money directly out of your checking account.
