worst case scenerio and at the height of my bait monkey addiction, one that made me weekly feed its hold on me, I was sneaking down to miamitown which is on the great miami river and dumps into near by ohio river. Each week I'd go and buy smithwick rogues when the craze came out about 15 years ago. This tackle shop was an old orange house behind a Phillips 66 gas station and sold all kinds of hand poured plastics and had all the Smithwick lures from way back when...
Took about a half hour to get there, shop and get back without the wife knowin what was going on LOL..heck i could have had a g/f friend, sneakin around to fed the baitmonkey

The baitmonkey got ahold of me early and still hasn't let his grip slip. I was 10 years old and mowed yards for money in the neighborhood. Most of my friends were buying fireworks, baseball cards and whatnot. Ok, I bought a few baseball cards, but mostly I spent my money on fishing lures. It was 1969 and the world was a little bit different back then. We had an old tackle shop in town that in my eyes was too glorious to imagine. Lures hung from pegs all over the walls and I was like a kid in a candy shop. Only I knew this stuff was better than candy by a mile!!! Every week I would ride my bike to the tackle shop to buy the two or three lures I had set my eyes on the previous week. I can only imagine how much the old man enjoyed watching my enthusiasm as he too was a fisherman who took me every time he could. The old baitshop has long since dissapeared only to be replaced by the likes of WalMart, BPS, and others. Kind of a shame I think. I really miss the old place. I'd love to repay a visit to my old tackle shop. I bet the baitmonkey would be there waiting for me.

I beat the bait monkey. After seeing all those smoking patches I taped a 1/2 oz. sinker to my upper arm. Have not bought anything in 2 weeks, been feeling weak and have only had minimal shaking and uncontrollable bowel movements. So far so good.
