I wet slipped last night and dropped the ball, leaving two rods (custom) in the rod holder arch.

This AM the reels were gone. Accurate BX 400 Narrow (custom build easily ID’d) silver and blue and an Avet JX, silver.

Crook was nice enough to leave a Leatherman tool behind on the deck, with the flat head open. Guessing a transient/tweeker type as they didn’t take the rods.

Sheriff hadn’t picked anyone up over night.

Keep an eye out if you can on the water and any suspicious sales.

Which wet slips were you at? Embarcadero storage wet slips by old hoist? They have really good cameras there now and save the footage.

I had a surfboard stolen from me a year or two back and found it on offer up always check offer up and eBay if you find it then contact the police if they don’t do anything go ask to check it out and just steal it back that’s what I had to do

At least they were nice enough to leave the rods. Lol at spending the time removing the reels on the boat instead of just snatching entire setups. They were begging to be caught

Hiding just the reels,
Is easier to get away with,
Then walking around with the rods too
This is true.. but also, walking away with two rods with reels at a docks/marina wouldn't really raise any suspicion (<*that doesnt look spelled right, but i spell checked it)

But if they look shady,
Then it raises a flag,
When I worked construction,
Things would find legs, and you
Learned to have your head on a swivel.

Love to see YouTube hidden camera footage of stuff like this. It is sometimes very surprising seeing who the thief's really are. Get cameras folks, the joy of having the Fers on film would be priceless.

Never leave your shit out or exposed. After all these articles of people getting their equipment stolen, Should be a warning for people. But some people think there invincible from it happening to them. But instead of locking it up or not having sense to put it away from the human eye, They post the incident on Bloody Decks likes it's something new and whine about it. Some people will never learn.

Too man losers don't want to work for a living.
Stop feeding, housing, etc etc them. They are literally coming here from other states because the goody two shoes think they are helping by providing these services. Couple this with our enlightened governors letting 50,000 inmates go free before thier time is up. Throw in cheap meth and us working folks get fucked because we have to pay for it.
