Heh. I feel you. Sometimes I see a good deal on eBay and think shoot, I need to bid on that myself The old 9" Castaic Softbait Trout get to me!!! I used to have this killer one that got bit so well and one day the head cracked in half. Made me so sad. I've been looking for a replacement ever since. Argh! lol.
Do you think guys are bidding up the 3:16 hardbaits as collector's items or to fish with? Mickey has such a variety of this high dollar hardbaits and people don't talk much so it's hard for me to get a read on which ones are the real fish catchers. You guys know me, I don't collect anything, I buy it to fish it
