I'd lend you one if I had one. I saw the other post saying you'll be on the grande with 50 close friends Haha. I've often seen one laying around where the crew keeps their rods/reels, pretty sure they'd lend it to an upcoming tuna killing kid, if you asked them. Worth a shot. Good luck tomorrow!!
Actually, was buying him some boots at Big 5, and found a basic one on the rack for $13.99. I had called and the kid earlier said they didn't have them, but the manager said they just started carrying them again. So all is good, he's all set.
