EXCALIBUR!

My new "toys." I got it for Easter from the wife. You could hear the angels singing as I pulled it from it's custom wrap.

I got it for Easter and then went on leave to Orlando. I've been secretly crying to get out on the boat every since. Planning on going this Saturday.

That the new G-54* hand-crank generator I've heard about for the laptops so PPT OpOrds can be given anywhere?

The G. Loomis NRX rod is so sensative, if a bass farts near my bait (soft plastic, in this case) I can tell you when she last ate. How much it weighs, and if she's carrying eggs.

I have several curado's and that is all I use when speck fishing/redfishing. They are EXCELLENT reels. I grew up on ambassodor's, then switched to calcutta's. Now, I am a Curado man. Nice selection.

I also own several Ambassadors. They're probably my favorite reel as they're easy to cast with my caveman thumbs. I just wanted something small and comfortable in my hand with the new rod.

I have a couple of old Mitchell 624's, had them for years and they've never let me down, just wondering if you get Mitchell reels in the states?

Thumbs up

After seeing that beauty of a reel, gave me the urge... I havent been fishing since March.. The bridge south of Big Pine Key did me good... Makes me wish I had a boat so I could do a lil off shore fishing, or intercoastal fishing

I just bought a speedboat last week

If you're passing by the UK you're welcome to come out in it ;-)

Sold my 30 foot fishing boat, last month.

I have 3 loves in my life, beer bait and ammo.

Absolutely, no problem. Give me a shout and we'll hit the waves at 50mph lol

By the way you don't have to call me sir, I appreciate your respect and I'm humbled by it but it's better aimed at the ones with "quiet professional" under their name, they deserve it not me.
