It's about Black Friday and Rollie and Helen's has a great sale going on! To announce this and to mourn the inevitable end of yet another muskie season, let's run a contest!

Rules: follow the scenario, create your shopping/buying list, post it here and you might win!

Scenario:

You get home from a business trip (family gathering, night out with the boys, etc) and your garage with your boat and all of your fishing gear has tragically burned to the ground!!! HOWEVER, your insurance company sends you a $3K gift certificate to Rollie and Helen's to cover all of your gear, Tuffy Boats felt badly about your boat and set you up with a full rigged 2100 with a 300 verado, 15hp kicker and all the bells and whistles you could imagine. Coincidentally, you won the last ever Publisher's Clearing House contest deal and got $50K to ONLY spend on the fishing season to end all seasons.....but because of _______ (I honestly just ran out of creativity) you have to to the St. Lawrence for a week, St. Clair for a week, Mille Lacs for a week, spend a week at Sun Rise Resort for a couple of weeks in N.WI, a month at Andy Myers Lodge in Ontario to finish the year...

So you've got the boat, you've got your destinations planned out, your boat ready to roll but you've got no gear! BUT you've got the $3K gift card to Rollie and Helen's to fill that boat up!!!

Back to the contest rules:
SPEND THAT $3k at Rollie's!
-USE ONLY WHAT IS LISTED ON THE MUSKY SHOP WEBSITE!!! http://www.muskyshop.com
-Write down all of what you'd buy to get ready for the season
-Give an accounting of what with prices.
-Spend all or some of the money
-Remember, you have NOTHING but a boat and a full dance card for the year...so it's up to you about what you need.

Judging for winners:
-completeness for a full season on those bodies of water (Eagle, the St Lawrence, St. Clair, N.WI)
-detail
-effort!

Prizes:
1st Place - Musky Shop Shield Rod of your choice: https://www.muskyshop.com/rods-reels/musky-shop-shield-series-rods/
2nd Place - Musky Shop Sweatshirt
3rd Place - MuskieFIRST T-Shirt

The contest starts RIGHT NOW and will run until November 26th.

Post responses here....only one entry per person but you can edit it! If I see you editing to add other's stuff...no so good.

Post questions here and good luck!

Ok all the kit has been lost and I have to start again. Think I'll use the $3000.00 to make a start on replacing all the hooks that hung on those baits but as they all had either Gamma's or Owners fitted it won't be cheap but hey the $3000.00 would a least make a start....... on the hooks !!! But only a start mind.

Well that brings me up to roughly $2800... here is the thing we all know that is this were a real life scenario and you walk into Rollies with a list, your not going to follow it. myself I know there would be bulldawgs and bucktails that would get thrown into the cart. Also there are a number of baits that Rollies doesn't offer that I would have to pay out of pocket for, for example some smaller rubber baits and topwaters. but this list will get me close.

Aman that was aton of fun... its too bad this order isn't going to show up on my door step later this week....
