if anyone knows anything or saw anything at yesterdays(4-6-13) saco bay tackle seminar at the clambake in scarborough maine, someone walked off with a brand new long 80 tip rod with a new shimano 130 spooled up with smoke blue mono and probably an orange backer, the rod has winthrop guides and is black with a silver wrapping. and has a tuna logo on the rod above the the butt. if anyone saw anything, or hears anything about it call saco bay tackle at 207-284-4453 talk to pete or ken. or anyone for that matter. or you can PM me on here and i will relay it to them. someone had to see something, or maybe ya hear someone talking about it, do the right thing. these guys work there ass off to put the seminar together and make it a good time for everyone and noone really needs to be stealing stuff from them, just remember whoever took that one is probably the guy who would walk by something on your boat and walk off with it if noone was looking. let anyone who might have been there know or any tackle shops know to be on the lookout for it. i will attach a few pictures the one with it at the stern of the mock boat it is the rod on the right in the picture. thanks for your help, hopefully they can get the rod back or whoever took it decides to do the right thing...

Wow someone has some balls. Petes one of the nicest guys on the planet and if I recall that rod/reel were being given away in a raffle to benefit the Childrens Hospital! What a scum bag.

no john that rod was just a demo they had there, they auctioned off a shimano 130 right before it was stolen to benifit the barbra bush childrens hospital, (which raised $1200 for it). but still all the more reason the people person who stole it should be shot.....they had a picture of the raffle being drawn and the rod was still there in the picture so it was sometime right after that....

i guess they have 2 people who saw the guy grab the rod, guess it was a tall guy, wearing a blue jacket with high collar, had a hat and brown hair....thats all they have got so far, but if anyone was there and has any pics with someone matching that description, or knows who it was...they will get the guy eventually its a "reel" small waterfront someone knows something somewhere...

If the rod was next to the rods in the top 2 pics, I say gravity took it. When the reels requiring repairs/replacement parts is the Serial Numbers required?

Id be checking the pawn shops, craigslist and ebay. It would be suicide for this guy to actually fish this rod. Maine is too small a place for it not to be noticed.
