Over a week ago I had tackle box fly out of my boat. How I have no idea, it was loaded with all of slow death rigs and spinner harnesses, blades I painted, some custom Great Lake stuff etc. all said and done atleast $900 if not more. I drove the 20 miles from cabin to the lake I went to and could not find it. Figured what the hell id throw it out on fb at a local bait shop to see if anyone has found it and that I'd provide the finder with a bottle or case of their choice. I had a handful of the blades in boat, Tommy Harris and Big Eyes, showed them to a few locals and after they were drooling over it I'd figure if anyone found it they'd keep it. So I just figured if that helps some dad get his kids on a boat load of fish, or a personal best, gets someone into fishing etc than it's worth it.
Fast forward today, after buying all new beads and hooks and blades, and packing them in my suitcase. The bait shop gives me a call, says a farmer found them in his field. He dropped em off at the shop and wanted a case of budlight for them. Called my folks at the lake and thank god for Sunday sales that man is enjoying some cold beers now and I'm happy to have my stuff all back.
side note is it weird I packed an entire suit case for Chicago with just tackle to make?
