You could buy spinning rigs (zebco, shakespeare. low end daiwa) from me for cheap ($12-15) and keep the little darlings busy outside 'til the turkey's done. If they lose/break one, no big deal. I have three rigs that I forgot to put into my recent garage sale. I have reconditioned them (new line, lubed roller bearing, adjusted drag, simple stuff like that, as or if needed) to make sure they work as intended (if maybe not quite as well as when new).
I have one baitcast rig as well for $20.

Will deliver in bayou vista if you are busy with turkey.
