Truck Damage At Cooper Creek 2-14-15

Recommended Posts

If any of you all happened to see who either backed into or ran into my White Chevy Avalanche while it was PARKED at Cooper this morning, I would appreciate a shout.

Guess they were to busy to leave their name and number. Ran into the side of the trailer in the front right side and broke out the tail light on the same side.

Looked like a pretty good bump and I'm sure they felt it.

Parking lot was loaded so who knows.

Have a great V. day with your Honey.

Randy, I really consider myself pretty lucky as far as Parking Lot damage. In 25 yrs. I have had 4 hubs stolen. One guy hammer a couple of dents in my truck cover and then this damage. Which is the biggest. If you figure the 1000's of days I have left my vehicle in these unattended lots it is really good. One of our other guide buddy's had has trailer crunched 2 times last year and another time had his boat ran into while it was on the trailer while we were at lunch.

Just kind of a bummer that whom ever did this would not own up to it. I won't turn it in, I'll just fix it.

I was a Beaver Creek at Bull a couple weeks back and it started to rain so i was loading and a couple other guys were too. The other guys had their window busted out and a pistol stolen. And a couple years back someone was taking the nuts of of peoples hitches down there. Scary stuff

I seen a pile of glass the other day I was down there. It's hard to believe they only broke into 1 rig.

I was the first one in that lot and last one out yesterday Bill. Sorry to learn of the damage and that is just plain rotten for a hit and run like that. My trip started after working the dock and just about the time the wind started blowing hard. Had a tough time trying to find a place to fish that was sheltered from the wind. Ended up throwing jigs all the way down by Monkey and had a blast. My payment for the trip is access to a 5 acre pond north of Joplin loaded with 4 pound crappie.

When we going? I'll drive.

I had just an outstanding day yesterday. They bit the Magnet for a while early and then they got all over that ginger TJ Micro. It was crazy. Pretty hard to fish that light of stuff like you say, but from the Fall Creek dock down that wall it was calm enough to keep some of the bow out of the line. Some of it. Enough, cause they were just hammering it.

Really, pretty nice fish to. I had one of those days where they were not going to keep any till the last little bit and then said "Shucks, if there this nice, I would like a few." Of course that is a complete panic mode for any guide. By golly, with 30 minutes to go we did put 7 dandy keepers in the boat and called it more than good.

I really think that the taxes we pay there should be camera's at our public parking lots, for safety. This past summer my bass boat was backed into at kimberling city and cracked my transom, which totaled it out. Thankfully I had full coverage on it. Sorry for your bad luck. They must have been drinking or know insurance.

No, I just think they were careless and I paid the price. Stuff happens, and really I'm not to bummed about it. Enough to complain a little, but it did not ruin my day after fishing with those nice guys from Iowa.

On the drinking deal, our line was still freezing in the guides and I passed a rental boat that two guys were already drowning their sorrows in two Miller beers. You start at 0800 in the morning that is a very long day of drowning your sorrows.

Vacation or no vacation
