I know that this has nothing to do with fishing, but does anyone have a Wii for sale ? If anyone finds one please let me know. I've tried every Best Buy, Game Stop, Target in Kansas City and no one has one. I've been looking since Christmas.

Are you fishing with Todd Huckabee in March? He has a new tackle store open. We were out there this past weekend visting kids and grandkids. He has a great location and will have a restruant open real soon which is all together with his tackle store.

Check Wal-Mart I know they had them in Joplin. Also make sure you go to the electronics counter and ask, they hide them so not everyone knows they have them.

Hey JJ, i'm still fishing with Todd on March 15 and 16. I talked to him tonight and i can't wait to see his store. He said with the ammount of peg board he has on the wall he should have enough inventory for a while.

I think i just broke the land speed record. I called a wal-mart about 10 miles from my house and i was there before i hung up the phone. I got the last one. You are right pole bender, i had to ask the people behind the counter. It's amazing what you will do for family.

Glad you got one, I agree it is amazing what you will do for family. I was racing around at christmas time for one and that is how I found out about the counter.

We might be out there that weekend and if we are I will look you up.
He does have a lot of room for inventory on the walls. I picked up a rod for polebender and some jigs for me.

My wife just happened to run to Target a couple of months ago to get something for her classroom and low and behold they just got 5 in and put them on the shelf as she walked by. After about two hours bowling on the thing I woke up the next morning in ebarrassment! My arm, shoulder and rear was so sore I could hardly walk or lift a glass! Good Lord I am out of shape!!!

For those of you still looking for a Wii....just watch the Sunday paper. The retailers like Target, Best Buy, Circuit City etc will have some for sale when they advertise in their weekly flyer. Get there before they open Sunday and go to customer service and ask for one.

And by the way...if you play baseball....you will be even more sore than you will from bowling. Im just sayin! :D:D

Bet you wont find one on Ebay for retail prices!

We got ours at Target a couple weeks before Xmas.....left the house at 7:30am and was back home by 8:30.

Could have been throwin curveballs to the kids shortly after, but we waited until Xmas!:D

A step up from the typical video game.

Where with most video games the kids are a gelatinous ball of mass on the floor with no aerobic activity. The Wii has remote that you swing, fling and bang to create activity in the game.
Played Rabid Rabbits on New Years Eve.
Fun game with a belly full of ice tea long island style.

Not so fun Greek style.
Anything Greek and Roman style makes me nervous.

Would you go fishin' with a guy that says, "Hey, let's go Crappie fishin' Roman Style"?
