Will,

You are basically asking crack dealers about how to get off the Narcotics.

I wish I could help. For me I am pretty sure that I will slow down once my addiciton forces me to pay alimony.

Give all your money to the poor and your credit cards to me and you will kick your addiction to the bait monkey. Otherwise there is no hope.

Im addicted to, but best way to calm yourself down is whenever you feel the urge to buy, go to your boat, and reorganize ALL the stuff you have. put everything where you want it and reposition everything, but look at it as you do it, seeing all your stuuff will end the craving, or at least it does for me.

As c-rig said it will only get worse... in less than two years i went from having one small plano box with all of my lures in it (including hooks, sinkers, plastics), and one $30 baitcaster, and now i have a monster tackle bag that weighs over 40 pounds, and 8 casting combos (between $100-$150 a piece) and three spinning combos. All of this tackle is for bank fishing. Did i need most of it... probably not, but when the monkey bites he will not let go! Best of Luck to You!

Wait until you start creating your own baits...I have recently been buying a lot of blank cranks, suspending baits & poppers and airbrushing my own designs...man, it's a blast! I started catching fish on my own baits last year and for some reason it's even more fulfilling to catch fish on something you created.

Set a budget on how much you plan to spend a month-if it is real bad a week. I went yesterday to WM to see what was on sale, well I came away with a new bait casting reel a $124 for $89 plus other baits on sale - total $120. Well I guess I better go add my budget up, I think I went over. :-( I told my wife look how much I saved everthing was on sale. I got that saying from the best, after 30 years with her don't you know. :-)

Each year I try to keep it down to just one new rod/reel within by budget.

I make about one trip to Bass Pro a week! I can spend an hour or more just walking down the isles looking at everything!! I also do this online when it's late and all I can think about is fishing...try www.tacklewarehouse.com. I placed an order last week, and before UPS delivered it to my door I already have another one on the way!

They should make a pill for this.
