05/30/15 fishing we don’t want to know
Stealing, low life thieves, yes they are a part of fishing. We like to think that people who fish are good honest decent people, But I have a 1/2 of 1 percent rule. which is simple 1/2 of 1 percent of the people you meet are low life. and will lie cheat or steal. Except maybe in D.C. where the average goes way up.
So even if you live in a nice quiet neighborhood, with good people, Do not leave your tackle out in your boat or where it may be seen, by anyone, Your neighbor may be a great guy, But what about his friends or your for that matter. Or just some goon ball driving by.
Fishing Tackle gets stolen here EVERY DAY. Yes somewhere in South west Florida each day fishing rods, reels, lures, Boats get stolen, Most often the Tackle is left in the persons Boat. Captains get hit a lot as they get in late and think well it is 11:pm and I have to leave again at 5:am No one is going to steal it. Wrong in the morning their Rods and reels are gone.
Sorry But 1/2 of 1 percent rule there is about 60,000 People in Port Charlotte So that means there is 300 people who given a chance will steal your stuff.
Sorry but I am posting this to remind you put it away, So you do not have to spend all that time checking the internet selling sites to see who is selling your Rods & reels.
