Everything you need to stock up your boat....Great Prices!

June 5th Sunday ONLY!

Kayak GEAR...Thule, Yakima, Cobra Kayaks!, Malibu Kayaks, Hobie...

Scuba gear -- STEEL tanks

Fishing stuff....


Ok Minney's is located in Costa Mesa at the end of the 55 South a little past Grant Boy's on the left hand side. You can't miss it because there will be about 2 blocks of people selling fishing and boating stuff like a big yard/garage sale.

They do this once a year and I have gone 3 years in a row and never been disappointed. I've gotten rods, reels, tackle, lures, pelican cases, tools, camping stuff, kayaking stuff, marine coolers and other crazy useful stuff. I've also seen for sale there inflatable boats, float tubes, pontoon boats, kayaks and canoes.

My advice if you go...They usually start around 6AM but I get there before sun up while people are still setting up to score the best deals or get the good stuff before it's gone. I usually bring a small hand cart with a crate or canvas bag to carry stuff because you never know what or how much stuff you might buy and a trip back to the car to unload is precious time wasted! If you are unsure about buying something don't think you can come back to it later because it will be gone you have to make a decision on the spot, flip a coin call a life line negotiate a better price but decide then. If you can't get there the first 2 hours then don't bother going because there won't be anything left.

And if you see me there and I don't say hi or you say hi and I just wave back and run don't be offended, when I go to these things I am focused, looking for certain things, looking for deals and cracked out on caffine. I'd not even notice my own mother standing there yelling at me.

Madbasser: Yes actually I bought a couple of my led molds there 2 years ago and a friend bought some hooks, fur and thread for making jigs. Most people that go are fishermen so stuff like you are looking for will sell fast.

Dano67: Sorry bud nothing personal but I no longer pick up stuff for people, I used to do it at these sales and the gun show but just got burned too many times trying to get my money back or people saying well it's kind of what I wanted but I wanted one in better shape.

Not sure if any of you guys made it but me and my dad got there at 5AM and were running around with flashlights to look at everything but it paid off. Pops bought a bunch of tools for work, he ended up walking the place back and fourth about 4 times.
I ran into a bunch of people that I only see at these events wich was cool. I ended up buying a couple rods to replace the ones I broke this weekend, a bunch of new Pelican brand flashlights, a Mercury trolling motor for the yak or pontoon boat, 10 pound kayak anchor, 2 vintage stag handle hunting knives, a beefy fighing belt for mudmarlin, and a few scotty fishing acessories. Everything I only spent about $80.

If you needed big salt water tackle it was a good sale, had alot of rods and reels for that.
