Yesterday we had the boat trailered in the lake fork marina parking lot while we were weighing in at the THSBA tournament. We were away from boat for a while cause we ended up winning, but everyone does the same and we had our rods out on the deck. We brought the boat home and this morning I realized that the G-Force prop nut was gone. Has anyone else had them stolen? It’s always tight and we check it all the time. Just wondered if this has happened to anyone else.

Pretty sad that someone would steal a $40 accessory.

I tell my guys to go weigh in while I secure the boat. All that stuff cost to much to buy or replace now days. Don’t know how you can keep that from happening anyways. Take it off every time I guess. Never thought to much about somebody stealing one. Sorry man !! I hate thieves !! Probably some rich kid !!!

Had one come off while fishing Caddo.last year. Prop stayed tight and finished the day fishing for a few more hours with it missing. You sure it did not fall off? I check mine every trip now and its occasionally a little loose.

I had one almost fall off. Mine was on maybe by a thread. I noticed it at home so who knows how long it was that close to falling off.

They fall off if you don't keep and eye it and tighten them.

Hey guys, just a thought but maybe put a little fingernail polish on the threads. This will set the threads but still come loose pretty easy.

We were parked there too with all gear on the deck and no issues. I have caught mine loose as well, as rough as the lake got Sat, I bet it may have fallen off vs being stolen

Congrats on your kids doing well! That was a tough day, we ended up with a limit and culled a couple but man has that lake become a huge disappointment

We were there for BERKLEY Bass Champs too and it was a popcorn fest that weekend too

Yeah that lake can be tough but we figured it out. Anyways I always make sure to tighten it and it’s always tight, so just wanted to see if anything has happened to anyone else. Thanks for all the input

Damn, mine gets so tight sometimes I have to put gloves on and hold the blade to get it off... I always check for fishing line at least once a month... Dan

This^^^^^ gets my vote. Of course I’m naive and want to still believe in mankind! They do loosen up occasionally.
