Watch your trailer hitch! Played it "safe" on Ray Hubbard and launched in Heath at Terry Park. Little brother met met me there and some trashie scum pos stole his hitch from the receiver! We had fun fishing, but coming back to that sux! I hope the mf'r runs off the road and totals their ride with that hitch !

bought a new one today, made sure it was a locking one. Though, from what im told, all they need is a hammer and a screwdriver to remove it anyway

Lol, I had a transom saver stole out of the back of my truck at Fork a few weeks back so I know the feeling. It's the point of the matter not value that made me upset.

If it didn't cost $15 to launch at a private ramp, it might be worth it to pay. But $20 once in awhile or $15 every time you launch at Chandlers? I'll take my chances. In my case, I just go to Fork or Tawakoni instead.

Still sucks your buddy had his stuff stolen. Like was said...the stuff folks will do for $20 is a little puzzling.

About a year ago I pulled in to the free west ramp off dalrock, and there was a guy sitting in a boat on a trailer in the parking lot. I didn't think much about it but then after I launched and was walking down to my boat in the water the guy in the parking lot yelled out "hide your personals". I asked if he had something stolen, and he replied "yea, my truck!". Those theives detached his empty trailer and drove off with his truck. Somebody helped him get his boat out of the water, and the police were just pulling in to investigate as I started idling off.

I posted about it back when it happened and it was amazing how many people chimed in about their cadilidic converters being sawed off while out on the water, trailers being stolen, cars broken into, you name it. Pay to launch on Hubbard PERIOD. The peace of mind is worth every penny! There are shady characters just sitting in their car every time I drive thru those two free ramps off Dalrock

I really appreciate that, but I went and boat a new hitch and locking pin yesterday. I planned on buying a locking pin anyway but on the way to pick up my boat Friday I ran out of time.

Thanks again though thumb

I put a lock on mine like what I use on the tongue of my trailer. It's pretty sturdy but it will keep the honest crook honest... I see people lock the tongue of their trailer to the ball, but the receiver hitch just has a pin in it. Seems like a easy way to steal the trailer to me. That would really suck to pull up to the ramp and see your truck and no trailer....
