Looks like a tiny Bingo-spoon combo. Wish you hadn't posted it because I'm in a twelve step recovery program. You know, "high I'm kenny and I have a tackle buying problem".

Lures

Yeah, it's a problem. My fishing partner and I have made a pact NOT to buy anymore lures.
Heck it's summer and the dangerous time of year for me is late winter, so I can't start backsliding now!

I know the feeling, I keep telling my self not to buy anymore lures but I can't stop. I must have 70 lbs of soft plastics but I still only throw about 3 or 4 different colors. But every time I see lures on sale I tell my self these will be good when I run into a bunch of schoolies or am working under birds when they will hit anything. Dang those bargin bins and dang those marketing people at the manufacturers. It's an addiction, he who dies with the most lures wins.

Don't overdo it guys!

I know it's fun, but all those different lures just complicate matters. Be honest, how many different lures do you use? I use less than 10. I probably have 50 but many are duplicates or replacements. All the new stuff is for suckers! You don't want to be a sucker do you?

I know a guy who has a thousand dollars worth of lures (at least) and when he fishes he'll throw a topwater for about 10 minutes. Won't catch one and goes to live bait. Now that is a tackle manufacturer's dream!

Well, I am off to Academy!

I tried to find them about two months ago so I called Rocky at Roy's Bait and Tackle. He told me that A man somewhere in the valley made them but quit making them. So I ended up finding some online on a closeout. Since then I noticed about two weeks ago Rocky now stocks them. So call Roy's Bait and Tackle. They should help you.

Lure buying issues

I was going through all my tackle and I must have had over a hundred topwaters and I filled up two 5 gallon buckets to the top with plastics. I have a lure buying sickness...

The way I rationalized it to the wife. There is no way on God's green earth that my tackle expenditures come close to her shoe buying capacity. She called my bluff and then we compared figures. Now she won't even bat an eye when I say "I'm going to Academy". Ain't life great.

JJ, it adds up real quick if you only buy 1 or 2 baits or bags of BA's at a time. Eventually you'll have more than you know what to do with. And if you're like me...you can't get off the live bait crutch.
