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).

    • Wow, I didn’t realize the lake was under that intense of pressure. I suppose I will try elsewhere if most of the trout have been taken out. Thanks for the advice! 
    • ...LOL, I did it again on Sunday as well. I used 21-40 ct shrimp and grilled up some chicken breast ahead of time that were added before the pan went on the grill.... pretty spot on!
    • Thanks for coming back with a review. They look like they should work well but I'm wondering if they allow slack in the line at the trip and let the fish off the hook?  I use dipsy's and a few other divers for deep trolling Walleye's in late summer.  Fun stuff when their out there. 🙂
    • All the little Trout ponds around the cities get hit like this on opener. More or less a "Put and take" fishery.  
    • Wow that is some high density fishing pressure!!!
    • This is a couple years old but I happened to stumble on it again today and I’m not really a big fan of the slide divers myself after giving them a shot. Maybe I’m doing something wrong but they seem more of a hassle than just the plain old, but effective, Dipsy diver     
    • Like he said. After opening weekend there may be few fish left.  Here's a little view why! 😉        
    • Welcome to the forums.   There is another company here in Minnesota that gets used a lot called Mattracks that you may want to look up. What size motor do you have? It takes a pretty good size motor to turn these tracks and get any speed out of them.   https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=2ahUKEwjohMjdlYbjAhWPGM0KHSFVAFoQFjAAegQIBxAC&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.mattracks.co%2F&usg=AOvVaw0l1s0-KJl2XMVmGU069TQt  
    • Upsize to #2 mepps. They cast much farther than the smaller sizes. With that being said, most (if not all) the trout have probably been caught out of the lake. If there is any trout left to be caught, I’d make sure to be there early in the morning as soon as the park opens.
    • So I am new to ATV’s and was doing some research on tracks for ATVs. I live in North Idaho and for winter and spring we have tons of snow and mud to deal with so was thinking tracks might be a good idea. So I found this site helpful https://www.atvtracks.net/track-systems and  local for me but wanted to get others opinions on what they use? I noticed they have two brands one Camso and one Kimpex what do y’all prefer?
