Default Got A Good Laugh Today! $20 Rebel Pop R??

I got a good laugh today!

I was headed to the dump this morning and on the way there I saw a yard sale with a bunch of fishing tackle. On the way back from the dump I stopped in t o see what he had. He had a bunch of plano 3700's full of crankbaits and topwater. I saw a bone colored rebel pop r so I asked him how much the baits were. to which he replied "Oh those are all vintage baits the prices vary" I was staring at all sorts of modern baits, matter of fact NONE of them were vintage, so right away I was expecting to hear this guy tell me that the 2 - 3 dollar used bait in my hand was going to cost something like 6 (you can buy them new for around 5) The guy walks up to me and tell me "Oh thats a rare one there. They dont make bone color anymore. That one costs 20 bucks"

I BURST INTO LAUGHTER!!

I told him "Oh no it doesnt. That price is CRAZY!" he says "my friend lives up near Ontario and he is on a fishing site up there and he tells me that people up there pay that much for them"

I replied "well sir, if someone will give you 20 for this bait, get it and run" and proceeded to explain to him that bone is NOT rare and is still being produced and brand new the bait costs less than 6 bucks. He told me I didn't know what I was talking about so I removed a business card from my wallet and told "Here's my site, come visit up sometime" and walked away.

Very few things get me upset but this guy trying to rip people off that bad, honestly upset me. I could feel myelf start to get a little shakey from adrenaline.

I just cannot believe some people.
