Gabby’s fishing fever

Fishing gear can be very expensive

Christmas Day reminded me of the many fishing-related things I have received — and given — over the years. Some fishing gifts can be expensive (rods and reels), and even some lures are very costly.

There is a line of crank baits made by Lucky Craft that is very expensive, some costing up to $50 or more. Rick Clunn’s topwater baits can cost $25 and up depending on where you get them. And there are swim baits that have become very popular the last few years after huge catches of largemouth bass were caught with them in California. Some of these lures can cost $65 or more.

Believe it or not, anglers are buying these baits all the time. The prices for top-name rods and reels are way up there too, but I myself like the basics when it comes to tackle and equipment. However, you do get what you pay for in most cases when it comes to buying fishing equipment. But there are many good-quality fishing products at decent prices and nice rod and reel combos you can get your little or big angler for not too much money.

I hope all my readers had a happy Christmas. I would like to wish you a happy 2013 and thank all of you for reading Gabby’s Fishing Fever during the 2012 season. I’ll talk to you soon.
