    I was on this trip as well and it really is hard to imagine anyone on that boat stealing those reels. You just never know sometimes I guess. The thing that gets me is that we were coming back in in broad daylight and I would think somebody was always kind of hanging out where the bags were (assuming not in your room?).
    Either way we all heard about it right away under the pretense of please check to make sure you didn't accidentally walk off the boat with extra reels. Pretty obvious that was not the case...

    Kam are you sure it could not have happened in the parking lot while the were passing out the fish?

    Both these guys are some fish killing mofos, that's for sure. Sucks that this happened.

    Like you said Karma is a bitch and it will come around for the dirt bag thief that did it.

    and btw, i usually leave my reels on my rods and after hearing some stories lately I bought some thin coated cable at HomeDepot this morning and a small combo lock. I'm going to run the cable through all my stuff in the rack from now on.

    Hi again, I found out few days later and after my friend told me about his missing reels. Since we were on a private charter, I left them in my bag on the dock rack and never bothered to recheck them. I fish that boat a lot and crew members are like my homies, IMPOSSIBLE that they took it! As far as leaving reels on the rods, I am SICK and a true tackle WHORE, I took 11 set ups on that trip.
    Thanks for the complement Jeff, it was nice fishing with you!

    I did! The same day I found out! Everyone on that trip has been notified by charter master. I posted it here, cause my Makaira has the non-matching handle, so just in case someone sees it, he/she would let me know kindly!

    Geez Kam, you're slacking! Only 11...what happened to the 15? Just messing man. If you had those 11 w/ one rusty hook I'm sure you did just fine. Sorry for the loss of your reel.

    Tails up,
    Dale

    so this is what it's come to. I know theft on boats is nothing new but for this to happen on a trip like this one (still thinking parking lot?) it could happen anytime. I'm going on an o'nite open party trip out of Pedro in a few days and those are the ones I've always worried about (like tying jigs on in the morning).
    Made this up. Just makes it through most my reels. It slips through the alternate handle hole in my two most expensive reels and I can get it through the frame on all but my Newells.
    Let me try the pic again......

    Kam, I'm sure you've already thought of putting a lock on that reel bag, although it may just encourage someone to steal the whole thing. Fuckheads.

    Lol! you read my mind! cheapest most secure for the boat. So, unless someone throwing the whole bag overboard, they cant steel anything! It didnt happen in parking lot, cause i put my bag directly in my car & locked it.

    If you met Kam.............you probably wouldn't want to steal from him. He's a big guy. They just need to get caught stealing from "any" guy. Pretty sure on most trips with most fisherman things would be properly "handled".

    Yeah it'll cut but not that easy. I got a big pair of side cutters that took alot of effort to get through it. Regular dikes would have a tough time. It will keep the honest people honest, like the chain and padlocks on the gates at my jobsite. If they really want in they got bolt cutters.
