Fishing poles common target of thieves

UPI News Service, 12/26/2012 

Fishing poles are among the most commonly stolen items in Corpus Christi, Texas, police reported.

It is easy to understand why, Corpus Christi Police Department Capt. Jason Brady said. They are lightweight, easy to spot in pickup truck beds and garages, and portable, and since fishermen typically have multiple lines, a dozen rods could be taken in a single robbery, he said.

Although it is possible to spend thousands of dollars on fishing equipment, many anglers are reckless with their equipment's care, the Corpus Christi Caller Times said Wednesday, noting many people leave rods and reels overnight in the back of trucks.

"If you go fishing just a few times a year, a lot of times the day to go to use it (the rods) is going to be the first time you notice it's gone. At that point it's really difficult for us to work a robbery that happened at an unknown time in the last six months," Brady said.
