I've found some nicely priced gear at the Lindenhurst show last month( new freshwater ultralight reel)
and also bought a nice reel from the "for sale" section of this board(lightly used salt spinning reel).

To me buying used is not a bad way to perhaps get gear that is otherwise not affordable.
I'm am in desperate need of gear upgrading after having been away from fishing these last 10-12 years.(house/kids etc!!!)My stuff is old and worn out...........but with sites like this I've learned a tremendous in a short period of time.

I'm rambling on ?
Cabin fever has set in :)

Waste of time and money. Even good vendors like J&H and Lindenhirst B&T drag out the real crap they can't give away to their regulars, and unload it as "show specials".

Of course, you could always go and line up to kiss Rich Johnson's ring. Last year, I was trying to have a nice talk with Bill Wetzel at his booth and that other yutz was assaulting my eardrums with his freakin' loudspeaker system.

went Thursday night. Chuck of Causeway and his seminar was excellent. Couldn't buy ammunition. Couldn't buy magazines (rifle.) Hunting? bah! -its just a bunch of lodge owners hawking their cabins. No boating supplies whatsoever, ended up going to Boaters World today. Did buy some bucktails and teasers, a 3 dollar pepsi and a 4 dollar hot dog. Had gone last about 8 years ago. Look for me there again in 2011. My mortgage will be paid off but I might be retired, so I will be the old guy walkin in from the pike!

My honest opinion is that it wasn't as bad as previous years.Yes,there is alot of hunting stuff but there was more fishing stuff this year than in past years.There was a few nice booths setup with offshore equipment like Chaos and tons of inshore stuff too.Capt neil is set up there selling raffles,stop by and support the cause.

Terrible Disappointment

This was my first time at this show and I couldn't wait to get there on Thursday after work. Walked around the place four times-kept thinking I was missing things-I wasn't! Six dollars to park, ten to get in and a $3.50 soda. I saw a fishing cap I bought at J&H two weeks ago for $11- for the show they were selling it for $12- what a bargain! Hooks and plastics I can buy right in the B&T. Bought a water cooler system, some beef jerky and salsa for the ride home(just kidding). Called my buddy on Friday morning,was planning on going on Saturday, told him to stay home and keep warm. I hope the Freeport show will be better.
