eriksat1 I like captain hooks because I can get the red 90 Matzu sickel jig hooks in size 8,6,4, can't find many places that have all the sizes I like. Mainly the size #8 hooks

stevensinks My son and I have getting most of our lead at junk yards. We have been getting it for what ever the market price is for scrap lead. Lots of the time its 25 cents or less. I only saw ebay mentioned once. I get lots of stuff there. 30 years ago when I started I got almost every thing at Cabelas but as said above they just don't much any more.

Kevin23 Just noticed this thread! Lots of good links!

I buy most of my molds from zeiners in kansas, great mom/pop shop that sells online and has GREAT prices... usually the best on the net.

I buy most of my hooks from capt hooks discount warehouse, but lately the prices have been going up and I can usually match it at lurepartsonline.

For odd stuff I like lureparts online, lure tape, beads, clevises, wire, etc.

Nobody has said any links for lead yet?? I usually just buy "soft" lead off ebay if I can find it for less than $1.50/lb.

CTS barlowstackle.com has a better shipping rate and I think you'll find the most hooks are slightly cheaper too.

What kind of plastics are you injecting? I make a ton of panfish plastics and some walleye baits as well. I do a couple different frogs and a nice 4.5" lizard too.

eriksat1 I just got into making my own jigs and soft plastics not long ago.
I have placed a few orders for hooks here, seems like good prices to me.

Bill Krejca Cabela's seems to have reduced the amount of tackle making supplies it carries. My guess is the amount of labor involved for sorting, counting, etc., is more labor intensive/less profitable than selling other high dollar items which they carry (think clothing,for example).

I have been pretty happy with Jann's for most of my needs. I like to call, rather than order via internet, in case an item is out of stock, easier to tell them to wait/ substitute. They are very good to work with.

My Accumulated links

I have the tackle bug / addiction and have accumulated many links. Also, I have a daily hit list that I search for on Ebay. I have bought brand new jig molds for $5 including shipping, Hooks that are $35/100 everywhere else I have bought for $10. Your local craigslist can turn up some great deals.
