Already have a Mojo Bass, the jigging model though. Great rod in my opinion. Topped it off with the Abu Garcia Black Max bait caster. As for my "Big Purchase", hoping to acquire a membership to my Fiancee's Dad's club near Wilmington. Then I'll have a place to use my Mojo Bass! :)

Like the topic! In years past, I've bought rods, reels, premium raingear, Humminbird side-imaging ect... I'm trying to scale down my purchases and use up the stuff I have.

I don't need much in gear. I want to get another year's use on all my rods and reels. Besides, I can't carry any more in my boat. And I have so much tackle that I try not to buy stuff on a whim like in years past. Unless it is replacement or a specific color, I'm not buying much.

I do need a new cranking battery so I'm going to get a premium AGM. I somehow lost my post and butt seat last fall so I am looking to replace that. Why are those posts so expensive?

Think I'll spend to get my impeller replaced and have someone tear down and lube my most heavily used baitcasters. I just flush and oil bearings but I want a complete tear-down.

I just bought a membership to Bass and Gills but I consider that a reward for just finishing a Masters program so that doesn't count for 2011.

Considering installing a 5" Jack plate and a S/S prop on my boat. Also I think I'll add another rod/reel to my Salmon gear. Maybe a wire dipsey or a 5/8 color lead core set up.

This year Team Manipulator gets underwater transom lighting. As the mate/net man I lost 1/2 dozen nice kings to downrigger cables in the dark last year and that will not happen again. Since we are doing that the boat also gets a complete sandblast and bottom paint redo. Also getting a depth raider to replace the rarely-functioning cannon unit.

Team Simon Sez out of Diversey gets all new canvas with new structure for more headroom and isenglass all around. Its a Sea Ray 34 EC and at any 6 footer scrapes his head. What a bad design for sucha great boat. 4 of the 6 tourney crew are over 6'2" so it will be far better next year. Also the canvas was black and on a mid-summer no wind day its like an oven. Tire kicking radar systems, but likely not pulling the trigger until next year.

mister twister wave-e tail leech, 50cents, best lure I had up in wisconsin. Just annihilated every fish in every lake then lost it on a dead snapping turtle. Found it today again at the fishing swap in rolling meadows after about 6 years of searching. Cant wait to try it around here. the lure of lures.

Bought a 24VDC trolling motor for my boat. Now I need to get a pair of group 27 batteries, actually they are on order now. Gotta get enough 6 gauge wire to replace the current wires and install the battery trays and 50A breaker.

Penn 550ssg and an Ocean master saltwater rod for the summer trip to the Florida Keys and the Cayman Islands. Hopefully I can also use it for catfish around here and will be worth every penny
