Hi all I know this isn't a fish report but I wanted to give fellow slipped boat owners in mission bay marinas a heads up. Friday night someone robbed several boats at different marinas in mission bay. From me they took tackle and my tool box out of unlocked deck compartments. Other boaters reported unlocked dock boxes robbed and one report of rods taken out of a boats cockpit while the owner slept on board. I don't have all the specifics and that's really all I know. I naively thought my stuff was safe in a locked marina.

I filed a police report and I encourage all victims to do the same and consider carefully what you leave in unlocked dock boxes or cubboards on your boat.

We got hit at Dana 2 weeks ago Monday, it looks like they are after tackle boxes lures and tools. I knew at some point I should have taken that stuff off of the boat, looks like someone else beat me to it. Keep an eye out for a tweaker motor home with a kayak strapped on, also been watching craigslist.

If this had happened to you or you know someone it happened to ask them to please file a police report. They may increase their presence if they know that tenants are apparently being robbed daily. Also contact the marina management and ask for security cameras. With today's relatively cheap systems there is no excuse all our local marinas don't have them installed! I've done all of the above.

We got hit at Harbor Island West last month. They got 4 rod/reel setups. Crazy thing was my brother was sleeping in the boat with the door open to the cabin. Rods were on the deck in the rod holders. Not the best place to put them I know but we did not go to bed until after midnight and were up at 4:30 am to go fishing. We did report it to the harbor police. Lock your gear up fellas!!!

Sorry to report they got 2 of my Toriums on favorite rods Sun night from the courtesy dock at Quivera basin. Had to have stepped on the gunnel to reach them. I was probably asking for it coming in solo at midnight to go to my truck for clothes before parking in a guest slip for the night.
As i walked past the bathrooms, a dude in a grey BMW 3 series compliments my boat and gets me talking about boats , and i am stupid enough to engage him . Then says look at this pic, and gets my back turned. I only realized what happened to me when i parked later.
Guess it could have been worse as they didn't get an Avet or Tiagra, but still.
You reap what you sow and those fucks will get theirs i believe.
Thinking of setting up a trap on the next night i can't sleep and seeing what kind of fun we can have .
It's a damn shame you cant let your guard down these days.

Yeah i was heading out to the kelp beds to get away from the traffic. That boat has a cool shape with the enclosed hard top.

Marina Village was one of the Marinas hit by thieves.

Dana Landing was also hit last week.

The Dana Landing Boat Launch Dock was hit while a boater went to get his Truck and Trailer - they snatched 2 rods while he was away.

Sorry to hear that you guy's have gotten ripped off.

I really really hope someone catches these guy's, beats the tar out of them and gives them the fisherman's version of water boarding before they get caught by the local authorities.
