Ha... your wife won't care and mine still doesn't know. Double edged sword!
I was thinking about going over to the Baker Bay supply house to look around. Your Dad brags about how much stuff he has... maybe he'll sell a good pole cheap that my Tekota will fit. Jerry Benning says he has a garage full of fishing stuff too. I don't need more stuff but by golly I might buy something anyway.
I hate to give up my NR because the Tekota didn't fit the reel seat or vice versa. I did find that my Penn 210 fits the NR. I think I'll swap the Penn 210 reel from the ugly stick to the North River. Then put the Tekota on the ugly stick (sturgeon rod). Might be a better deal for the sturgeon rod. It's hard to beat the drag on a Tekota, the Penn is just "ok".
When r u coming down? Ocean season?
