Couple dozen Rapalas
Couple dozen jigs

Couple dozen spinner and buzz baits

handful of tools and trinkets from ICAST
6 spools of braid
2 spools of mono
3 spools of flouro
and i'm sure there's more that I don't even recall just yet...

all stolen... don't anticipate even seeing again...
if i do, he'll be castrated...

who knows how long it'll be before I'll be fishing again. I've got a $25 gift card for Bass Pro Shops, so I guess its time to start working on rebuilding the collection...

Damn. That really sucks.

Was your stuff in some kind of recognizable bag, box, etc? What else can you add that would help us out; if we should see it?

And where did it happen? Hopefully we can help catch the SOB.

Less than 50 feet from the Santiam River! :)
Sorry to hear that kind of story. It really takes your breath away to discover so many of your hard earned treasures have been taken away from you by someone who could never depend on them like you do,I know. I hope you can get back out soon and I wish I could help somehow. Trouble is,most of my stuff came from yard sales and is definitely not up to the task of ocean fishing the way you fish. I think I would use a dull pair of fingernail clippers...

Bummer...my tackle bag goes out to you. The crappie thing is they probably don't even know what they have.

It was a collection of cheap tackle trays and stuff packed into a Promar/Ahi cloth bag that was given out at ICAST. I doubt any of it would be recognizable unless I actually looked at it.

It was all taken from NE 15th of Alberta. I don't figure much of any of it is actually pawn-able. I walked around the blocks looking for clues, and talked to neighbors, but I guess thats the best I can do. I did file a police report, and turned down an interview on Fox news (seriously).

One of the things you might not have seen before would be the Click2Knot

Man sorry to hear about this happening man.
I can't stand to see another fisherperson to not be able to get on the water do to something like this, let alone another OFFer. I don't have a lot of bass tackle but I do have plenty of lure and jig making materials. PM me and lets see what we can do to get you back out on the water. All I will ask in return is pics of the fish you get in to. I like fish porn.

the stuff I lost was years ago and have more and better now , Just sad to think even in a smaller town the punks will bust into your stuff if it even remotely looks like anything ! I leave my personal rigs unlocked and empty now just so the #$%^&*( dont bust my windows and usually 2-3 times a year come out to the contents of my glove box strewn across the front of my rig.Like I said sad but inevitable in town .Feel lucky to be away from that capblack

Man that really sucks. some retard probably just got all this cool gear and has no idea the real value and got rid of it for so cheap it would make you sick. too bad you didn't do the interview and offer up a good reard for the gear back and then when the thieve brought it back bam no reward after all.

The way I understand it, there is a very special place for these vermin; remember Jesus was a angler...
