OK guys and Girls it is very important that you are aware that it is the collective effort of everyone on this site that has got us were we are today. I believe we have a great thing going here and if we continue to take care of it who knows were it will lead us to. We wanted to post this up to get your input and information on this topic where did you get your gear from. What we are looking for is did you buy from one of our listed sponsors / partners, and if so what did you buy and how often, how was the experience, and did you find out about them here.
Please guys don't be shy let us know what you have bought. The more info we have the better chance we have of adding new sponsor / partners, and maybe getting some other deals open to us.
Again we all work to make this forum what it is and your input willhelp to grow this place even more. Thanks guys so let us know who are you supporting. Cool

to be honest i get most of my gear from ebay, tubes & reels, but for rods I build myself.

tackle is something I spend alot on and usually buy at save-on-tackle. Big Hammer, Warbaits, MC's etc. Oh and Unibutter! Gotta have that!

I have not used our sponsors yet. Buy most of my gear at brick and mortar shops. Old school, like to put my hands on things. Don't trust sending buy CC # out on the web.

I have one tube from Creek Company and it was a great deal and great customer service followed it's delivery.

I have grubs from Smith's Handpoured Baits and I use and catch frequently on them specifically 4" rootbeer and motoroil curly tail grubs.

I use the Fish Grips and I am a big fan.

Love the Big Hammer's and what a great sponsor they are I must say!

I'm going to win a fishing net from Beat The Big Box Boyz as soon as Jeff can figure out how he wants me to do it. (Might as well give it to me now)

I also fish the OTS Custom Baits and I thank them for their generosity at gatherings.

I bought my tube at BPS but it can easily be found online for a lot cheaper. I also bought my booties and fins there, again this is all stuff that you can find for a lot cheaper either brand new or with some use.

I bought 2 of my reels online and the rest I buy at Turners.

I like supporting the small shops so I'll buy everything else from them. The extra few dollars you spend are well worth the knowledge you get with your purchase.

For baits I buy my T&C swimgrubs direct from Kevin, he does a great job and his monthly contests give me a great way of winning free baits.

Now that is support for you thanks Wax, I am sure there are more out there, I am not saying you have to support our sponsors and only buy from them. But that would help and if you are looking to buy check them out you might find a good deal.

I used T&C lures a few years back I wish I had some maybe I should send out and order. Thanks for the support Mass, and everyone else.

Hey guys
Although I don't buy from our sponsors, I regularly visit their sites just to window shop and see what's new as well as follow their links and read their forums.

Everything that I have bought has been from brick n mortar, Sports Chalet, BPS, and Turners mostly with Big 5 and Sports Authority when I need something right away.
I have nothing against buying from web, I guess I just like to touch/feel what I am buying. I haven't found a independent tackle shop out here in the Riverside area.

Big Hammers, their online store has colors you can't find at tackle shops, as some are limited runs.

Oh i went off talking about where i bought my stuff without mentioning the sponsors.....oops...idiot alert bounce

But for me I love fishing those Big Hammers and Warbaits. I've caught some nice fish on the "War Hammer". I haven't bought direct yet but I usually get my BH's wherever but most of my warbaits are bought in Dana Point at Hogans Bait & Tackle.


Hot Sauce? Dang right I use it...usually get that at Turner's or Hogans or Dana Landing or Squidco...all depends where I'm at.


Haven't used stuff from any of the other sponsors but you can bet that i will be experimenting with new stuff this summer!

Get 88.7% of my tackle from saveontackle, since it's down the street from my job.

Been hooked on big hammers, and and use procure for flavor.


Thinking about giving those bulletbobbers a try.

I bought two sets of BulletBobbers and a Dualfin after being lured by the FTFF site. All of my gear comes from Cabela's (closest one to California is in Springfield, OR or Reno, NV). Bought my two toons from the Farm and Fleet store - aka place where dairy farmers hang out when they are not milking. They hung from the ceiling for over a year. I asked the manager if I could buy them for half price. Got em for $200 each. They never ordered any more after that. They will stock float tubes every spring and clean them out when it is time for the ice gear in the fall.

I buy 90% of my tackle from The Long Fin or Proformance Tackle.
The products I do buy are War Baits, Big Hammer, Hot Sauce. I also use OTS Baits.

I also love my Fish Grips as well. I don't order anything online as I would rather buy from my local shops
