About an 8000 sq ft log cabin sitting on Kentucky Lake with a 8-10 slip matching boathouse w/garage door openers on all the doors. A tackle room in the back of my boathouse that would make people laugh at Gander Mountain. A different kind of bass boat sitting in every stall.

The ability to call Kistler, Loomis and St Croix and say send me 2 of everything...

Oh, the day that I hit the lottery!!!! hahaha

Not that I've ever dreamed about anything like this or anything!! hahaha

Money is no object and you only want to get 20 kids into fishing?!  :)

I'd probably go with every Dobyns Extremes as well. These rods are amazing. Probably get quite a few customs as well with mostly JDM reels. I mean and if money was no object I would have a lake house on every nice lake in Cali, Texas, Flordia and a house in Ten for smallies.  ;D

Outstanding answer. Very unselfish. That said, If money were no object, I would then buy you whatever you wanted. What goes around comes around. You, JFrancho, must be one good dude.

LOL, not always, but I get a big kick out of kids fishing.  Can be frustrating as hell sometimes, but everything gets that way sometimes with kids. :)

I know what you mean about kids.I have a 9 year old daughter. she goes with me several times over the summer but is not really interested until I catch a fish, then she always wants to put the bigmouth bass back. I get a kick out of her calling it a bigmouth. My four year old son is autistic. I have high hopes that he will turn out to be my fishing buddy, but it is not happening any time soon most likely.  I have also taken my nephew, who is also 9, and daughter together. What an adventure. We ended up looking for pretty rocks after an action filled, line tangled, minnows spilled twenty minutes of fun/adventure, terror .  ;D

if money were no object i would retire so i could go fishing all the time. i've got plenty of equipment, including the boat, i could just really use some additional time to use them! as to the 20 kids fishing i would think many on this site already have enough stuff to take 20 kids fishing! i have taken several of the kids in my neighborhood fishing over the years because mine are grown at this point. and everyone of those kids said they had the time of their life. of course i would probably upgrade some of my rods and reels too, if money were no object!

I'm the oddball here.

I have no desire for the high dollar stuff.  I'm perfectly happy with my good entry level Extreme baitcasting combos which cost 129.00, my extremed rod/Shimano Saros spinning combos, the two Nitro combos, and a finesse baitcasting combo, the two Johnny Morris spinning combos, and I'll let you know about the two CarbonLite/Shimano Saros spinning combos I recently acquired.

But, my perspective is different from the average fisherman on here.

I had gotten away from recreational fishing in fresh water around 1970 - 71.

The stuff I had was archaic to what is on the market today.  Spinning reels were unaffectionately known as coffee grinders because they sounded like a coffee grinder.

I won't even go into the fishing rod I had.  But if you go to the road trip, I hope to remember to bring it with the guides held on by bandaids or adhesive tape.

My current arsenal is light years ahead of the fishing tools of yore.  I'm perfectly happy with it.

Different strokes for different folks.

Not true.  :)

If money were no object, I'd have a G5 at my disposal, and follow the spawn on a worldwide fishing extraveganza.  Brazil for peacocks, New Guinea for bass, florida for tarpon,  Suriname for dogfish, Argentina for golden dorado, south africa for tigerfish, egypt for nile river perch, alaska for salmon, mexico for largemouth.  Not necessarily in that order, but with my own jet, equipment, and liquor, I'd be a happy dude.  Of course I'd brind dad along and a couple good friends.  :D
