Default Alright now im pissed

I was at my local ramp last weekend and struck up a conversation with a young guy waiting on my dumb ass to hook up my flats boat and get the hell out of the way.

Nice kid, wife and a young kid about 10 or so. I asked him if they caught anything and he said no, my rods and gear were stolen out my garage last night so we just went for a cruise to get son out for the day. Guys I cant think of one thing other than a child molester that pisses me off more than a fn thief. This guy works his ass off to enjoy watching his son catch (the) fish and some scum bag steals the dream. Rant over

I feel you. Just another case of non providers taking from providers.

If you can't earn it, steal it? Very sad indeed.

Good call Miami I did one better, I brought the son over to my boat and said grab one. He looked at mom and dad with the Christmas morning look and mom and dad refused the gesture. He did have a great time with the trim button though. He is a natural.

If you still have a way to contact him or anything I have 2 decent pflueger spinning set ups I'll give him. All he would have to do is cover shipping.

This goes for anyone that has had their gear stolen and can't replace it. Admiral has been on me about thinning out the rods/reels and I couldn't think of a better way than to help out a fellow fisherman.

I hate a thief.

My neighbor's car is up on blocks. Someone stole his wheels right off his car in his driveway in east Boca. WTF.
5 cars on our street got hit 2 weeks ago including my wife's.

Deeper Tog these folks were very proud and extremely gracious of my offer however have like me been in the ditches and shoveled there way out.

I get really pissed about twice a year and for some reason my hair was on fire on the way home. While I have no kids this one hit home for me.

Its threads like this that make me laugh a little and shake my head.

A guy in the trading dock sells dozens of copied and cracked (read stolen) Garmin G2 Vision cards and all anyone says is "Great deal!".

Funny, threads like these make me realize how lucky I have been......for over forty years I have never had anything stolen at home.....never had to take gear out of the boat, never locked......it gotta suck living in fear all the time

Wait, this is a public forum right......my guard dogs are not fed yet and have to go reset the claymores
