Be careful tackle rats

Recommended Posts

I hope this ok to post admin . My family gave my a $50 BCF card for Xmas . Off I headed in Boxing Day signs saying 20 percent off on all hard body lures . Picked up a laser double clutch and some leader . Off I go to pay they ring it through give me the price . Me is that with the 20 percent off the lure umm no they fixed it . Thinking I should’ve bought two lures doesn’t matter . That night I get an email from BCF $10 off any purchase must be used before Monday . Off I go grabbed another laser double clutch go to pay again using the BCF card . Young lady gives me the price is that with the $10 off yes and the 20 percent off umm no . Yes they finally took it off .

This post is just a warning if tackle shops advertise 20 percent off make sure they actually give you that discount . 

Hope it was ok to post .

Anaconda got me one trip not by not giving me the discount . I got a $20 voucher from them the double clutches were $24 thought I’ll pay $4 . Get to the check out oh they are on special $19.90 you have to spend more money to get the $20 off . Yes I bought some lure clips and talking to customers they were stumped trying to work out what else to buy . This week I got 2 Anaconda vouchers but you must spend $60 and $80 to get discount.

I almost always buy online but only buy from anaconda or bcf when they have specials as i find they are almost alway more exspencive than my locally own and operated fishing store

I don't like to support any chain stores as they don't offer good advice and seem to be answering questions without reel (pun) knowledge, i was at bcf looking at jigheads with the idea of attaching a 4" sp to a 5/0 or 4/0 3/4oz for casting at bustups while chasing tuna, one of the sales guys comes over and asks "can i help" i said no thanks im just checking out jigheads after some time he asked what i was looking for? So i explained what i was thinking about and he said for a 4" sp i needed a 1/0 to 4/0 form 1/20 to 1/8oz 🤔 i asked do you thing that this is suitable for catching and landing a 30kg tuna offshore? He looked at me puzzled and said for tuna you need bigger! You need 7 to 9" sp's for tuna! With that i said but what if they are only eating bait fish that are 4"? You have to match the hatch if you want to catch? Lol it was then that he could see he did not have the required experience to help me in what i was there for but hung around and learnt new from a novice😉 

I even get similar responces from the guys in the local tackle store but they in most cases start to understand within minutes of what im getting at and then offer ideas on how to do whats required😉

I only buy from BCF or Anaconda when I get a deal or my family give me a gift card 

I prefer tackleworld for DC they are cheaper

While BCF and Anaconda have got the range they still aren't cheap when the sales are on.

I wanted a Shimano Sedona this week and seen them for $99 normally $124.99.

Ordered direct from overseas and is delivered to my door for $70.Not a huge saving but the gear i go through every year every bit helps to save me something,as for warranty that's virtually non existent these days.
