Things are coming along - Kentucky

Post by kahuna bass »

Greetings All,

Finally got some time off to get the workshop set for the boat (picking it up next month from Oceanside), and get my tackle set up. What started as the "man cave" ended up becoming a partial "she shed/she shacks." 1/3 of the workshop is for craft storage and Christmas decorations. You know guys. "Happy wife, happy life"

So, for the moment, I have a 2/3 workshop for the boat, riding lawn mower, UTV, and tackle storage bins and shelving. Heck, it's still more room than what I had back in Oceanside.

It's coming.....slowly! The challenge is real, the passion -----that's another story

What hours are you open? And do you take Venmo or just cash?

If some of the local tackle shops saw your swim baits, they would laugh in disbelief. I brought some of mine into a shop to show some guys in Missouri and they thought they were novelty gimmicks just for looks and I was joking with them. They said, “a bass would never try to eat that….”

Too funny, when I lived in Oceanside, guys would come over just to hang in the garage. More than a few times it was referred to as the "tackle shop"

Every so often, someone who knows someone will email me and ask if the tackle store was open business!

I have the best wife; she just comes out to the workshop and quietly reminds me who owns the 13lb and twin 10lbs largemouth bass records mounts, and I reply, " You baby" One day I'll catch a double-digit largemouth bass! Still stuck at 9-4lbs. Kentucky and Tennesse hopefully are my saving grace!

I've spoken with a few Kentucky bass anglers and their vision of a swim bait is something along 6". My collection would scare a few.

I guess if the tackle shop isn’t open yet, just start fishing until it is!! 🤣
