Went to D & R Sports with DIRTY DOG today to pick up a rod and reel. $350 later, I made it out of the store. :(

My wife was only expecting me to spend $150. :rolleyes: Now I need to break the news to my wife. :eek:

My wife was really funny at the Grand Rapids show. She was almost more excited at all the great deals then I was. Believe it or not, i'm actually the one who kept our spending limited!

Side note: Going to the GR show was just a bonus during our boat shopping adventure. I definitely plan on making it an annual event!

Mike, Ya need to have a little $ in the rat hole just for these occasions.:lol:

I had a c-note stuffed in the rat hole, and applied it to the purchase. After she found out only $250 came out of our account, she was more happy. ;)
