    My stolen Pathfinder recovered

    I understand the frustration but understand it isn't the cop telling you that that made that rule. They are just the messenger for the bureaucracy that is the US legal system. The system is stacked towards defense teams and suspects. And returning property is a whole nother issue because of the civil implications if they give someone back the wrong stuff. Bug your state reps to make the system more in line with what it should be. Here's a brief view of a General Sessions Case. Officer makes arrest, suspect has bond hearing next day, then a preliminary hearing ( judge rules if there's probable cause to hold over), the a grand jury hearing ( grand jury can dismiss charges or have it bound over), then the attorneys start the let's make a deal process. The answers given by the boots on the street and the detective all come down from command staff or other higher up ( or the ever present attorney). If you really want to see frustration try being a property manager in South Carolina and evicting a tenant. That might make the Pope curse

    Buying a 2004 Pathfinder 2200 this weekend

    Don't forget the two live wells on the back deck of a TE as well.

    My stolen Pathfinder recovered

    Believe me, most cops are willing. Most people don't realize it is solicitors that don't prosecute the cases or plea them down to jaywalking. The solicitors always find a reason to flush it and try to blame it on the LEO. In a case like this the solicitors in SC will grill the investigating officers about how the operator would have reasonably thought it was stolen. An example (hypothetical of course and not representative of anything disclaimer), a stolen Dodge Charger, that was stolen from a rental company. Stop said car, and driver complies completely. His statement is that he "rented" it from a guy on Craigslist or Facebook for $500 a month but can't give you the guys info. Keys still have rental barcode attachment and solicitors pass on the case. He didn't run or anything so he didn't know it was stolen. If they run most agencies won't chase due to civil suits and criminals know it. Heck if they get caught solicitors will drop a failure to stop in a plea deal. If the average person really knew what solicitors did they would be outraged. It is easier to blame the police because that's who they see. They don't realize the police are operating based on what a solicitor will prosecute. Sorry, I'll get of my soapbox, I need some saltwater therapy.

    Can't answer for Florida but in South Carolina I have to articulate that a reasonable person would believe the car or in this case boat was stolen. Yes, the suspect gets the advantage and until people tell their lawmakers to change it, that will continue. I've had attorneys argue that their clients didn't know a car was stolen even though the driver failed to stop for lights/siren. They said he ran because he was suspended and I think some liberal judges are starting to buy that BS. It is getting bad out there, suspects don't fear the court system. Hell even a wet behind the ears public defender can get them a sweet deal. Don't even get me started on gun and drug cases. 12 bags of cocaine,oh that was for personal use and the $$ in his pocket broken down into set amounts. That's rent money or tax refund.

    This Is a Sunset

    Storms passed through and I'm still trying to get my tarpon as the sun starts to drop. Jumped one, missed another bite

    Mangrove Snapper Questio

    Thanks for the input, tried a few new spots and finally caught some fish, also changed up presentation and down sized some stuff including bait. Hope to make it to the patch reefs this week still. And a pic of last night's dinner guest.

    Mangrove Snapper Questio

    Down for our annual vacation in Big Pine. However, this year we are down later than normal and the mangrove snapper are not cooperating. We've tried our usual bridge spots and only had one fish and the cuda got him. Not looking for spots but do I need to give up on the bridges or keep grinding it out. The old standby pin fish have fallen short. So do I need to go deeper due to water temps, head back into the gulf and look for cuts in the mangroves or stay my course? Any pointers from the mbg trust would be appreciated. On a report note, the shark population seems to be doing fair along with the cudas too. And the weather is great, we went to Sombrero Light to snorkel today. Aside from the boat ramp looking antics we observed it was a great trip.

    New Trailer Brakes

    Doing maintenance on the trailer today, I noticed my rotors need replacement also. I have the tiedown torsion axle with tiedown brakes as well. The hubs are disc hub single piece unit by tiedown as well. If I swap to a different disc hub that are not integrated but use the same diameter rotor am I good to go, or do i need to replace caliper as well? My calipers aren't bad and should have plenty of life left in them. The piston moves freely in them.

    Carrying extra fuel on my 2500

    ATL makes fuel bladders too, not sure if they make them for gas and in our sizes. They are popular on big sporties.

    A tale of two companies (one is powerpole)

    It was part of a bundle but why trash a MDF when you have a transducer available, and local at that. Guess that is their corporate mentality. And now I know why everyone loves the PP customer service
  15. My wife and I fished yesterday. Got a late start but hit the water around 8. Found some menhaden and headed to a secret spot only known to a few locals (jetties). It was steady action on Spanish Macks, Bluefish and a couple Reds. Didn't get a pic of it but released a fat 30 inch Spanish and found out later it may of been a state record (oh well, I was trying to get him back into the water fast). Forgive my facial expressions my wife times the pics just right on me. Anyhow back on the trailer around one. Can't complain when you get to spend a day or half a day on the water with your wife. Look at that water!
