Fishing Gear SCORE Found At Garage Sale!

Found New But Used Fishing Gear Today. Score!

Today i decided to check out a garage sale that advertised sporting gear like golfing & fishing equipment. Roughly 90% of the time it’s a waste of time & gas. Today though i was amazed to find bottom jigging, trolling, shore casting & hand-made lures from Alaska. Since i mothballed my boat i laid off the trolling rods & conventional reels (4/0’s, 6/0’s, Jigmasters, Newells). There were old spinners like Mitchells to some large Penns.

For my needs i picked-out a pair of seemingly used Nitro 12′ Graphite Surf Casting Rods. After i cleaned off the grease i found them to be mint in new condition. I left the 10′ & 8′ Nitros behind. The converted Newell sparked an interest but decided on a new 12′ Nitro Spincasting Rod in it’s bag NEW with the original price tag still on it. By this time a few buyers started to arrive & they all recognized me, so it was my hint on making my departure.

Nitro makes some of the best bait casting, sliding & spincasting rods in the industry. I use a 13ft Nitro Med/Hvy for baitcasting with an Avet Raptor Reel & a 13ft Hvy Nitro for bait sliding. They may be popular rods but are inexpensive & i never had one bust on me yet.

It was nice to come home & clean-up my purchases. I have stored reels BNIB that needed rods to be mated with. This was a great day & the seller was happy with the extra space & Xmas bucks for Christmas. When i was leaving others were piling-up Penn reels & trolling rods. A friend i called was happy to score the 6/0’s, 4/0’s & a Jig for only $20-40ea with fresh line. Doesn’t happen all the time but persistence does pay off once in awhile.

    Unrelated topic Chris, but where do you get your heavy duty swivels (3-way)? I can only find the rivet style ones, which almost pulled out yesterday.

    I just use basic candle wax on my ferrules. I have found it works better than other things to prevent sticking, while keeping the rod tight enough and in line while casting repeatedly. And it stays on forever. And ya…really good score.

    First, you can find some good deals at garage sales. I heard of one guy who found a van staal vs 200 at a garage sale for $20.
