Title says it all. A little bday road trip culminating in some bluefin tuna fishing out of beautiful San Diego California. Prayers for a safe trip much appreciated! I'll be online though at times. Get to visit my old LHS where it all started, Brookhurst Hobbies in Garden Grove! Later sukkas!

Jeff, if you ever make it to Toronto, check out Wheels and Wings. I don't know what their total inventory is but they bought a 10,000 kit collection at the end of last year. They haven't even been able to sort through it yet but I'm waiting.

I remember that, wasn’t someone who’d past away and the family were selling it off. Pretty much all vintage as I remember......

That's was the one. They bought the whole lot and moved it to a storage facility to sort through. I know they're planning to donate some of the kits to various groups as the boxes were damaged. Otherwise, I think the plan is to bring the.into the shop slowly.

What do you use for a heave set up? Rod reel?

I didn't bring my own stuff this time, using loaner gear. Most of my gear is old and tired and I am starting to upgrade to Avet/Seeker set ups. I do have a Avet JX Raptor with a seven foot jig stick for throwing irons and bombs. New stuff is amazing but dang is it expensive.
