Someone Stole All My Fishing Gear

Recommended Posts

Hey y'all worse day ever today I get homw from work and was gonna go fishing and I go out to my garage and find that my side door on my garage was broke and open so I walk in and turn the lights on and look and someone broke into my garage and stole all my tools and over $10,000 in salt& freshwater fishing gear. So I called the cops and they came out took pictures and made a report and said they are gonna do there best to find the people that did this. Im so mad about this s***t I'd give anyone anything if they needed it and help people out like I just dont get it. So now I gotta replace all my stuff this isn't gonna be fun to do. Plus a few of my rods and feels were really old and they were past on to me after my paw paw past away last year. To top it off I was going to the Outer Banks in South Carolina this weekend for a fishing trip!!! It makes me sick sorry y'all I just had to vent about this

Sorry brother.  Thieves are scum of the earth.  Does homeowners insurance cover any of this?  I know the sentimental stuff can never be replaced though.  A lot of these guys resell on craigslist and ebay.  I'd also check any pawn shops.

I'm so sorry. Get things straightened out with your insurance. Nightmares like this are what insurance is for. Good luck.

Hopefully your insurance takes care of you. I know they say to take pics and document everything you have (which I don't) but maybe you did.

I had all my gear stolen once and my boat stolen once, never got a single thing back. It's a terrible feeling, but at least your insurance is going to cover it. It happened to me when I was still in school and obviously didn't have homeowners insurance, so I had to replace it all piece by piece again.

Ouch. Sorry to hear about something like this happening. I'm glad homeowners insurance covers this but it definitely hurts no matter what. I can't imagine what I would feel like if something happened like this to me; knowing how much time and effort it took to accumulate all the gear, maintain everything, modify stuff, etc... I feel for you and hope everything turns out for the best.

That really SUCKS! I hate thieves! But I have a similar story. I bought a new nitro ZV18 about a month ago. I had over 3k in fishing gear in it and around $3k in electronics. A guy backed up to it in my driveway in broad daylight while my wife was putting our 4 yo to bed and took everything. I got home, called the cops, posted pics on facebook and the boat was found within 3 hours. I was pretty lucky. The guy had all my fishing stuff in the back of his truck, some of my electronics out and the cables and hoses were cut off the motor. He unbolted the motor and dropped it on the ground. The damage is almost $12k. Insurance will cover it but it will never be my new boat again. I should get it back around the July 4th weekend hopefully. It only had like 4 hours on it. The cops actually had possession of it longer than I did. I still haven't made the first payment yet. It's due in 5 days.

Bummer....... Some Thief robbed a Brand new canoe from me about 20 years ago. It was in the woods chained to a tree on private property.

It could only have been one of two people that robbed it. They were the only two that knew it was there. One of them moved to Minnesota the day before I saw that it was gone. Hmmm.

Many moons ago on the LA/MS Pearl River launch areas there was a rash of trucks and trailers stolen after the boats had been launched. When coming back to the launch from fishing, some fishermen found no truck and trailer. Hope things work out for you.

Man I'm really sorry to hear that. Thieves are absolute scum. I hope they get caught and arrested. At least you've got insurance to cover it, and hopefully you can get back in the swing of things soon.

I had all my stuff stolen several years ago.  Luckliy I had just got into fishing and didn't really have all that much but still.  I'd be sick if it happened now.  Sorry this happened to you, Brother.  I hope they catch the scum that did it.

I actually had all my stuff stolen a few years ago. It was like right after I started fishing again after a really long time. I had also just joined this site around then as I was really getting back into it and this was like new a development from the time I was last fishing. I lost 5 or 6 setups and a pretty good sized tote full off stuff. The tote had old stuff in it also that belonged to mygrandfater's like like Mitchell spinning reels rapalas, spoons, Erie deries, ect. I really didn't have anything amazing back then by my standards today in regards to lures but I had some decent rods and reels I used. I do wish I still had the old curados that got stolen. I would still use those to this day. I have never owned another curado since those were stolen though.

I'm lucky that my service truck wasn't in my garage or at my house cause they could of stole a lot more and could of took the trick to because I leave the keys in it
