    ***Update 11/30/16***

    I'm planning to distribute the packages the week of Dec 19th or sooner. Once I obtain all the items I'll post up a picture of the goods. I put out a couple feelers in the community for some nominations of people/families that could benefit from our generosity.

    With all of this said, I'll cut off donations on Dec 16th. This way the items can be sorted over the weekend and packaged together.

    Thanks again for all the support and donations.


    Let me introduce myself, my name is Jason aka oh da shiz (just a thing that has stuck with me from my days on Kauai) I've grown up fishing both fresh and salt for pleasure and commercially all my life. I've been blessed to be able to be able to support my addiction of this sport / hobby. The purpose of this post is to be able to pay it forward.

    Some of you may have seen the post in the "for sale" forum that @filippo started and I PM'd him asking to purchase the items then adding more of my own in order to donate a nice fishing start up package for kid that wouldn't be able to afford to purchase the items. Just so happens all this is happening around the Holidays and I figured, why not. So far, the response has been awesome among the members. It appears when the dust settles we may be able to put together 3-5 "packages"

    If you would like to donate any tackle to contribute, it would be greatly appreciated. Please PM me so we can coordinate. I intend to purchase the additional items that may be need to finish off the packages without hesitation.

    Also, if you would like to nominate someone whether a kid, military personnel, law enforcement or ?? please send me a PM as well. When nominating someone, please give some detail as to why and how this could help impact thier live.

    I'm planning to run down to the Chula Vista area on either Thursday or Friday to pick up items from SD Fish members. I'll post up pictures after I've collected items and add onto this post as we move closer to the time of giving away the tackle.

    Regards,

    Jason

    I have a brand new Okuma conventional saltwater set up I'd like to donate. Tags still on it. Adequate for Yellowfin and yellowtail.

    I bought it for my nephew 2 years ago as his first set up. He got a job at Squidco and copped attitude at Okuma products. He got into Avet and Shimano.

    I never said I was made of money and I lost the receipt. Never used!

    Not sure if I should start a new post but.....

    Does anyone repair/tune up reels as a hobby or PT gig? I am thinking of gear to donate. I have a few reels that could use a tune-up and then would be good to donate.....

    Your thoughts?

    @aquaholic has gathered up these to donate and it looks like we just need to find some reels that someone may want to donate to complete the combos.

    to complete these we will need 1 spin cast, 3 spinning and 2 casting reels.

    We're gonna be able to really make some peoples day with all the items that are gonna be donated.

    Thanks again guys.

    I have a Shimano Bantam baitcaster I can donate, it would be decent for some new start up fisherman or kid. Let me know how I can get it to you and I'm sure I have other spinning reels you might be able to use I'll check when I get off work.

    This pole needs a decent conventional reel rated at 20-30# test. It still has more Yellowtail and Tuna to catch!

    Will go on the garage hunt later on, see what I have available, I know I have a couple fairly new Okuma Rox spinning combos, a couple conv combos (maybe), a load of crappie jigs, probably a few cranks, a ton of hooks.. pretty sure I have lots of line for most of these reels also..
