Monkey Got Me Good!

Recommended Posts

Well I went to Gander Mountain with no intentions to buy fishing gear instead I was looking for a new scope for my coyote gun but after 45 minutes of "take a number and wait to be seen" I said the hell with it I will buy a scope some where else or offline.

 

I walked down to the fishing section just to browse and maybe grope some new Revo 3rd gens but they had none. Then I noticed they did have a Revo S spinning which I'v been eye balling for a few months at TW and then seen they had a Revo Premier spinning reel for 197.99 and I just muttered "that must be wrong" the guy agreed and scanned it and said "well that's what its marked that's what I will sell it to you for" I instantly was grinning from ear to ear went from mad about the whole scope ordeal to a kid in the candy store. I snatched up there last one that wasn't on display a 20 series and then went over and put it on a few rods and walked away with a Veritas ML 6'9" and a spool of suffix 832.

Congratulations.  Love that reel.  It is a beauty!  Not all that fond of white rods, but have a Daiwa Jupiter so you know I don't let color alone sway me seeing as it is also a white rod.

 

I stopped yesterday to pick up something for my wife on Valentine's Day and wound up with earrings costing many times any item (or several items) I would buy for myself.  On the bright side, I did have two new rods arrive today.  (Totaled about 1/5 her earrings.)  The sad part is they were delivered at work after I left, so I won't get to see them until Monday.  :(

 

P.S.  You did a good job of covering up the pound test.  :)  I've got 10# 832 on my lightest outfit.

haha I didn't even notice I had the ## of the line covered its 20# ghost. I think I may order a Villain rod though it would match better I think and then get the Revo S spinning and put it in this rod.

 

Its gonna be all things finesse for right now till I get another I gotta go back up that way this week again if they still have them miss marked I may grab that display model. 

 

And Darren my boys just got spoiled earlier in the week I spent a little over 500 on new clothes and shoes for the little guys and my oldest got the Ike dude combo the other day. He hasn't seen it yet I showed him a pic on line and asked if he would rather have that over spider man combo from walmart he said yes so I picked one up at DSG its going to be one of his B-day presents he turns 4 in may just in time for some good bass fishing here in NY.

I have a Villain ML.  Sharp looking rod, imo.  Some don't like it's looks, but I do.  I'd have to say from what little I have used it so far that dropping below its weight range will be counterproductive.

Your boys will be happy, I'd say. The Dad needed a little splurge on himself, I'd warrant. When they get older, though, it's harder to disguise your awesome presents to yourself. I have 4 boys, I know.  :dazed-7:

Normally I don't splurge on myself like that Yeah I bought my Revo sx 2 years ago and 2 Revo S's last year all were had for almost half the price of one new. I just got my federal tax return plus a unexpected paycheck from the army for $1783 after I had set aside rent, car payments/insurance, cell phone bill money for 3 months plus paid off my credit card then got that extra $1783 for travel pay and with all iv been dealing with I decided to treat my self since I already stashed money away and caught all my bills up. My boys already catch on at least my oldest Noah he is to smart for his own good hes got a fishing tackle bag just like mine now a matching rod and reel and the boy refuses to use live bait and wants to use lures. He went with me today to zero my 17hmr for a upcoming squirrel hunt asked TONS of questions and has been talking bout it non stop lol
