View Full Version : Tattoo's Tackle - The last of of it

12-04-2016, 10:15 AM
So here it is, the last what is in my possession. Tough to let this go but life moves forward and in strange directions even when you don't want it to. For those that were part of all this along with those long days and nights in "ManTown" hopefully you enjoyed it all as much as I did. To name a few, Corey ( right hand man), Dave Fontaine, Bobcat, PeteG, Stephan, Kadir, JHABS (RIP) Pt Jude Joe (RIP), Pt Jude Jeff, PJ Theve ( you guys know who you are ) The Daniels Brothers and Chemical Wasteland Ronald, along with many other "special guests".

There are approx. 600 - 700 painted bodies. Some ready to wrap, and put on hooks. Others need to be put together with components, which I have most of. Don't have lips, but they are readily available online. No hooks either. You would need some WTP eyes as well, but those cost pennies.

Sea Dogs, Sea Pups, Danny's, Large Swimmers, Diving Swimmers, Jr Swimmers, 2oz Darters, 3oz Darters. No Eels, hated making those damn things.

What you see is what you get, plus whatever else I dig up by the time an offer is accepted. I know I have some unbent lips and a full box of SS wire in 3ft lengths.

I've been on the fence about this for a long time. Now its time. Its all or nothing, just like if you were in Vegas. I'm not parting it out, so prepare to take it all.

Open to a RESONABLE offer.

Small sampling of what is here

I am interested in some of those unfinished Darter bodies. Is this a whole lot purchase or individual pieces?

do you know what is there for darter bodies? meaning 2oz or 3oz and how many there is? Thanks matt

I have purchased lots, or groups of finished bodies with the weights, wire and hardware from Mike in the past. All were top quality finish! I mean silky satin finish.... If you are interested in these, please put together a group and make an offer for the whole lot, as he requested. Being that I am on the northshore of Mass, there isn't the name recognition up this way that Tattoo's have down in southern Mass and RI. If I were down that way, and had the time and connections with anglers and a few shops, I could see putting a group together to buy and market this stash..... It's all about putting together a business plan. Comes down to a price per unit or total dollar amount that will get the deal done.

Good luck Mike, I'll ask around for ya

Really happy for you Mike. Over the years I have had quite a few inquires about your plugs. Thought I'd send some your way. Would like to catch up with you - been a long time. All the best.

apparently for sale against the rules on the other site, shut down by the humble tyrant, one "ACerone" so it would seem.

Yeah Anthony bought the lot, not sure if he got it alone or went in with some guys, he's a serious collector

He commented on FB that most of the darters are already getting me but some will be made available

Trying to keep the hardware/quality as close to original as possible.

He's a good guy, done a lot of trades/sales with him with no issues

Saw that it was against the rule a over there.
