Lets see your dollarama baits !!

Recommended Posts

These are the dollarama baits I have chosen for this weekend..The store I bought these baits from did not have any of the rod or reels so I'm still looking around for a combo.

I'm amazed at what the dollar store can produce and sell for $1.

 

These lures prob wont last half the time others do with paint chips and have weak rings and hooks, but for $1, who can complain.

 

I just hope its mass produced using machines and robots, and not a shack full of children from some 3rd world country doing all the work for a penny a day.

Why would they pay children pennies anymore? The machine is only a one time investment, and you don't have to feed it!

I would love to see that you catch some nice smallies or largies with these :) Then we can really say its worth it for the $1 spent on each. I have bought a few and they even have the rattles inside each one, quite well made for a $1. Seriously I don't see why they won't work.

The third bait you have is a great one if you are fishing shallow. It suspends and dives about 1 ft, perfect for smallies to come up and smash it. To my surprise the bait actually held up its paint pretty well, I'm guessing that if you don't catch pike / muskie on it, you should be more than fine.

 

The only problem is that the hooks have a split ring, and they do tangle up with each other. Although these hooks aren't the best hooks, I have enough confidence in those hooks that they won't even bend on a good 3#er.

We are ready!!! Monique and I are ready, were headin up to camp on Thursday and are gonna fish Dollarama exclusively on Sat or Sun, whichever the weather is nicest on.

 

We did well. We got a rod and reel, and lures for under $10 each, we split on a roll of wire so the pike don't bite us off .. the rods are great.. lol

 

The bamboo rod is 7 1/2 feet which will make it great for trolling.... were gonna kick some Dollarama butt!!!

 

I can tell there's gonna be some heavy taping to keep all the components together!!!

 

I gotta say, I wasn't sure what we could get for $10, but we only spent $9.50 each and I'm thrilled!!

Here they are. I even bought the leaders. Cut 3 of them apart to used the snaps and swivels seperately. The reel cost $2 and I feel like I got ripped off. Could it be any rougher. It says it has 20m of 7pound test. lol. that is like 65 feet of line. The rod is crappy too but much better than the reel.

I have a jerk bait, topwater, small shallow crank, deeper crank and a bunch of jigs.

I will catch fish!

You gents can go with steel leaders if you like but I'm going to throw caution to the wind and fish leaderless and with no snap swivels to boot....Finesse and stealth is the key here :D

Now back to my search for a rod and reel....

The only thing I dislike about the reel is that the spinner is on the right side. I always spin with my left hand while holding the rod with the right hand. So this reel won't work for me, but it sure is inexpensive at $2

Dollarama in conjunction with Kathy Lee Gifford just opened a huge new lure factory in Bangkok.

Well I've been reading this topic since it started and I was very curious what I could find at my dollar store.

 

It didnt have as good as a selection as other. No cranks or topwaters...:(

I used to buy canned corn (the bait I use the most) at dollar stores, 2 cans for $1. This deal is hard to find now after the price of corn went up.

My selection of $ama lures...

How'd that freebie get in there? :D

 

If the Derby works out for me I'll probably select 3 of the lures (not the freebie, don't worry) and go with those.
