I have been on several trips at Granger and 3 times I've made it back to the to see some guy cussing because his truck got broken into, just yesterday on lake Waco when me and my bud got back to the ramp he discovered someone took his trailer gooseneck screw, safety chain and took one of his trailer tail lights. Guys lets watch out for each other out there, if I see someone fixing something on trailer or truck I always ask do they need help just to get a temperature check incase its a thief. Now when I go I take my game cam and post it to view my truck and trailer while I'm fishing guys please do the same so we can catch these jerks! whip boxing slinger

I always have a camera on me. Whether it be my phone or my big camera. If I see someone by a truck/trailer I will just have to take their pic. Wonder how many will have a problem with it. nuts

I like the game camera idea a lot. I keep my trailer license plate inside my truck. I have had two trailer plates stolen. If I were a Police Officer, I would visit every boat ramp and write citations on trailers with out of date registrations. If I get stopped I show them my trailer plate and explain why I don't have it mounted to the trailer. Nobody has had a problem with that so far.

Koehne Park in Waco, Taylor and Fox park on Granger. If everyone starts using game cams I think we all could fish a little more comfortable. Once the word get out to these bums once we catch a few it wont feel like easy pickings to the others.

Depends on the park, yesterday I put it on a tree set on motion, its camo so its hard to see. We need to all have signs also that say, "cameras in use" as a deterent at the parks.

Dang....When did boat ramps become the "HOOD"!

I hate a thief, I'm sure some of you that have been here awhile, remember when all my tackle was stolen.

@crope1 you can get them at Walmart, Academy or any other hunting and fishing store.
@tboxfish I know how you feel, while I was serving my country in a combat zone some jerk took that time to break into my home. Makes you feel really violated. They stole all my guns and valuables my wife was so scared and upset had to sell and move.

It's not limited to lakes in the DFW area. At a Wright Patman ramp, thieves took the boat buckle tie downs off of my trailer. Now, I hope I don't have to take them off, for I welded them on. taz

I wouldnt post too many details on here,,on methods u will use to catch them, because it sounds more like sabotage.. pulling the pin and taking the safety chain sounds like someone trying to cause an accident. like someone is mad because your fishing " thier lake".. why would someone steal a trailer goosneck pin, the chain, and a tailight.?

Ifr they stole a tire or the whole trailer it would make more sense, but what they took is just not valuable.
Thanks for making us aware, and I will keep an eye out.
