Someone stole 6 custom trolling rods w/ Penn International reels, a spinning rod and 2 pomponete gaffs off my boat Friday night. If anyone has any info, PLEASE shoot me an email or give me a call. 910-212-2222.
Thanks!

Sounds like someone knew what you had and where you had it. Sorry to hear about that. Good luck with your search. Did you have them marked in anyway?

The gear is VERY identifiable. There are 4 rigs that have Penn internationals #30 (older model) w/ clear 30lb mono and black swivel mounted on white custom trolling rods. Black, red, gold wrapping on the roller guides. Aluminum Aftco butts. 2 rigs have same rods w/ Penn #50 Special Edition reels. Placard from IGFA on the reels! Line is blue/gray.
4' and 6' Black Pomponette gaffs. Black Aftco spinning rod w/ Penn 5500 (black/gold).
Also, another boat had custom gear and tackle stolen. Rods were lime green.

Looks like your stuff may be sitting in southern VA. Description of seller looks like he/she may be a pawn shop.

Thanks for all your help. Through several connections we've been able to get all our gear back. We fed the info to Wilmington police detectives. They got it back on Thursday. Thief worked at the marina. Now he has some serious charges to contend with.

Was that your stuff on EBAY? Just wondering if it made it that far?

I'm happy that they caught the person who stole your things! I have registered everything I own on http://www.searchforstolen.com. I once had an apple iMac (and other things) stolen from my home, but thanks to people checking things on searchforstolen.com before they buy, I managed to get my iMac back Smile
