    It’s a niche but some lures can be worth hundreds if not thousands of dollars depending on condition.

    He buys thousands wholesale a year from all over the country from tackle companies for resale in his shop. also rods reels and about everything fishing. He also travels and bids on other shops inventory when they go out of business, There are hundreds of internet sites apparently doing all manner of things.

    Apparently from Tx to Fla bass fishing is BIG business. They have shows just like our gun shows. He has professional bass fishermen who get him to locate stuff. He even had the guy from that picker show come and try to buy out his shop. He acted like he didn't recognize him and said to give him a hour or two and he would give him a price. Shot him a price for the whole enchilada and then told him I know who you are and I have done this for 30yrs and am not stupid. The guy left.

    I know nothing about it myself other than the junk we traded as kids. He sends me pictures of rare lures he says are worth 7-8 thousand. Just look like a plug to me. Ill post a pic he sent from a guy who he is having a dozen custom painted for me to show how off the deep end this has become to me.

    Great story and if I may say......your not spending "more than it's worth".
    Enjoy fixing it up and more importantly enjoy your memories.

    Indeed. Value (as with beauty) is often in the eye of the beholder.
