    As the title says over 3000$ of my years built fishing stuff has been stolen. I got my car fixed on the 30th due to engine malfunction and maintenance and paid 535$ then on Halloween morning I got in a car accident and it was my fault and have to pay a 1000$ by the time my car is fixed.
    Anyway now today i got my whole pier fishing setup stolen. I put my stuff outside of a fast food place in Clairemont and went to the bathroom by the time I came back it was gone. Ran around the vicinity searching but no luck. Anyway I know it a long shot but if anybody sees these items please notify me.

    Wow, this is bad news. Sorry to hear that. Be sure to check CraigsList, Facebook sell pages, and even swap meets. I get a bit obsessed with finding my stuff that gets stolen.

    Damn I hate thieves. That's my biggest fear
    Ask your mom about insurance.
    Renters?
    Homeowners?
    Both usually would cover theft.
    The duductables will be high but much less than 3 grand.
    Worth a look....So sorry

    Thank you. I have citica and 10-20lb abu bass rod. The one thing that I don’t have in a cheaper form a is a medium 6-15lb spinning rod. I was in the process of getting a Phenix m1 6-12 x-fast 7’8” built but it’s been postponed due to lack of funds and squidco not building rods with cork. Thank you though.

    It sucks that you were robbed, but with that said, I am totally baffled as to why you would leave your gear unattended out in public. I rarely carry more than $100 worth of gear with me, and even then I never leave it unsupervised. It comes into the bathroom with me. I can't imagine leaving $3000 worth of gear laying around.

    I guess you can chalk that up as a hard lesson learned.

    Best of luck.

    I made a similar mistake.. I left 400-500 bucks worth of my gear on the side of my house overnight accidentally and it was gone the next day.. the lesson is: people love to steal fishing gear.

    I didn’t realize how much stuff I actually had in there until I wrote it all down. I would leave tackle in the car but it’s in the shop. Believe me I’ve been kicking myself all day. I’m going to feel the hit of this for a looong time.

    Sorry to read about your misfortune. Feelin' your pain, I'd be pretty devastated as well. As I was reading your list I couldn't help but think, "damn, now the scumbag culprit had a reference to price the gear!" I'll be monitoring the post to see where I can chip in to help out if need be.
