I lost a steez on a rod I had just completed in grand lake. What stinks is I didn’t notice until the next week when I started getting my gear together.
THAT would've driven me mad. I wouldn't have slept for a week.
That pretty much describes it. Every time I think of it I reply what could have happened. I don’t like the conclusion that makes the most sense either

Like a thief close to home? My wheels wouldn't stop spinning for a loooong time.

Yea like a thief in the boat with me. I hate to think that but it’s the most logical thing sorta

Yeah, I hate that. I'd rather it be lost to the depths. I bet it wouldn't be hard to move nice tackle like that in that area, either. Then next thing you know it's on sale at that tackle shop with the bobber drop guy.

I’ll for sure recognize the rod if it ever did come up because I built it. It’s been several years though now. I do hope though that it was just another donation to Grand Lake.

Me too.

I've been lucky because what little fishing I do from a boat is from a Glastron. The only good thing about fishing from a ski boat is that it's hard for anything to fly out. All I've ever lost are nice fish, lures, tungsten sinkers, hooks, etc. Never a rod, reel, or box of baits. I've only ever broken one rod, and that was a cheap Browning spinning rod that came with a reel for like $40. Like many, I have just about lost my mind a time or two, and most all of that was my fault. Sometimes you just have to know when to pack it up and go home.

i remember ish monroe had a BAD day, losing an array of Megabass rods and reels.
First time I ever cast a 110 (Jr.) I lost it. Sad day. Have just a few of them, but that alone has left me still hesitant to throw them. Also lost a ton of lipless cranks when I first started, they were my favorite lure to use.
i recently just had to try out a couple of baitcasters, new gliss line on one, from a dock. had a guy in a boat bring back a floating topwater i'd cast off. kept throwing and lost a vision 95 . it sure looked good jumping around. but it did not float and it sank into the watery depths of lake hickory. note to self bring a boat next time or only using floating baits. on a positive note now looking for more visions.
