Delivery breakdown!!!

Recommended Posts

I just want to take a brief moment to exclaim my complete dissatisfaction with the various delivery companies! I won't name the company, but they srewed up big time!

Here's why!
Jeff Beckwith from Scenic Tackle had shipped a very large donation of tackle for this years Trout Day. Well, it never arrived! At first, I blamed Jeff for not coming through(a lesson in "never assume"), then he called last night to ask how the tackle worked for trout!

To make a long story, I just got off the phone with the delivery company and they gave several different excuses, but it came down to simply being LOST!! Not finding my house!! The driver even called and asked me if I lived in a different County!???

IN turn, I lost out, Trout Day attendees lost out and Jeff Beckwith lost out. Jeff lost out because his gracious donation never came to fruition and people never had the chance to test his wonderful product!!!!

ALl in all, I am frustrated, but now it has been settled!!

Never assume people, especially through "word of mouth", only through the "horses mouth" will I heed the truth!!


Now if I can convince Jeff to donate in the future!!!???


Back to fishing!!!

Jeff & Scenic Tackle will donate in the future I bet. He is a great guy and has great products. He provided products at all the ice challenges and I am sure he will understand the mix up.

I have been in your exact situation many times before. It Seems every time I don't get something I blame the sender and it ALWAYS ends up being the freight company. I never seem to learn though!

Oh, and I bet those Angel Eye Jrs would have worked for trout. Seems like they would have great action with a little current pushing them!ScottS

I know your frustrations. A freight company (initials CTI) lost (stole) a 9.9 Yamaha 4-stroke motor I bought from a guy in California. That was a year ago. No motor, no apology, not even a refund on my shipping charges! All I got was a measly $10 because they would only pay $.10 per pound shipped. What a joke and a scam.

After a long, stressful debate, the 3rd party shipping company who arranged the shipment paid all my money back plus $50 for the hassle. All out of their own pocket. They were never reimbursed by the contracted frieght company (CTI).

    • Used the impulse mayflys today, the fish were not biting well. I ended up catching a few nice gills on the mayflys but more fish with  the demon/ waxie combo. I want to try some lighter line with the horizontal jig /impulse mayfly and see what happens. Maybe 5 years ago I moved away from winter panfish fishing. I am so glad I am back catching panfish, a very enjoyable way to pass a winter morning!
    • 13 years ago I had my heart set on a Lund, I went with an Alumacraft because I could rig it out nicer with the money I was allotted by my better half at the time..........no regrets.
    • Ive owned 7 Lunds and don't see another one in the future.  Also been looking at the A-crafts.  The 205 trophy.  Have a 13' Lund Tyee 1800 now.  Good boat but its too light for big water.  Really like the fit and finish of the Aluma's.  The black windshield trim is sharp and the carpet on the top of the gunwale is also nice.  Really impressed.  Not gonna take out a mortgage to buy a glass boat either.
    • I’ve never done anything with mine. I store it standing up and in the fall change the oil if I remember. Haven’t had any issues yet. 
    • I had problems with my 02. I found that the plug on the truck side going to the plug at the bumper was corroded. I hope that made sense I cleaned it up and put dielectric grease on it.    
    • I would put some Seafoam in the ga.........................  oh never mind. 😁
    • I rode the trails around big lake today, mostly to get used to the new trails. trails were awesome, they must have groomed last night, rode to becker and back and some other playing around. all in all I put on 42 miles today. I will ride into the orrock area tomorrow. don't ride that much around here anymore, mostly aitkin co. now. looks like the trails around the sand dunes look good, I will give it a shot tomorrow.
    • I'm guessing not much. I know the one pounders threads can start to rust in a humid environment, but am not sure if that would be an issue if still attached? I know nothing about propane augers,  is there an oil tank to keep the engine lubed? And if so, does it need to be refreshed or drained every once in a while? It's not like you need to worry about bad gas gumming up the system.   Mostly,  I'm just replying to give you something to read TJ. Hopefully somebody else will chime in with more knowledge.  
    • Possibility of moisture getting into them after washing the stove top and around the burners? My wife is good at that.
    • I get it, like the woman in the commercial. You are clever.
