The most important thing is to carefully and thoughtfully read the instructions, in order to avoid problems, I always do so.

Sorry to hear your bad news.
But I don't think this affected your tackles.

How much smoke are you talking about ..... Was your garage on fire or is this residual smoke from a Cali wildfire ?Depending upon what your level of competitiveness is, Bass can surely smell and I would not use any plastics that were saturated in smoke. You can rinse off your hard baits. Your line is less of an issue, but I would also be looking forward to respooling sooner. This all depends of course on just what the level of exposure was.

Depending on how your tackle was stored would be the deciding factor. Sealed bags and new never opened bags of plastic should be ok, but loose plastic in plano boxes or open bags I would think there'd be some smoke smell in them. Hard plastics could probably be washed in non-oder dish soap and rinsed well. Also, exposed line may be a problem. Rods and Reels should be ok also. But, it all boils down to just how much smoke was involved. Good luck tho.

Hard baits you clean in warm water mixed with baking soda, about a cup to a gallon and rinse with warm water, hang to dry. You can the same with soft plastics if they have a stronge smokey ordor, dry then add a little glycerin oil in zip lock bags to store.
The big issue to deodorize of smoke is the boat carpeted areas, rod and storage lockers.
Good luck,
Tom
