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).

    • WELL i was just up in  that country over the weekend. maybe 3-4 inches in the woods might be 2 inches of snow on the lakes!!!!!!
    • That's why I remain in the adapt and live with it and hope for a solution that doesn't destroy our already sub-par deer hunting in MN. (and fishing when it comes to aquatic invaders)
    • i use the same husky bag for my helix setup works great.
    • Ice Team partnered with Navionics for a handful of online webinars.  These are pretty cool.  I thought the HSO group would get a kick out of them.  Not always easy to make all of the seminars in-person, especially when you live across the country from some of them, so these webinars offer-up a unique opportunity.  Here are the details on the ones coming up if anyone is interested...   When: December 11th, 8:00 PM EST Topic: How to Attract Fish to You on the Ice with Mark Martin. Link: https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/7012356799514703874?source=Navionics+News    When: December 19th, 8:00 PM EST Topic: Improving Your Lake Trout Ice Fishing Tactics with Bernie Keefe. Link: https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/82867287788632833?source=Navionics+News     Enjoy!
    • Nice set up. Husky also makes a lunch bag that seems to work well for ice fishing electronics. I reinforced the top lid to support my tablet and put a switch, 12v outlet & 3 port phone charger to one side. I like the extra storage on back for cables and 2 water holders for my chargers. Use the 9ah 12v lead acid battery for power. Has carry handle when closed.
    • You guys may be right.  May as well start draining every dam lake with invasive species in it to make sure it's stopped, cut down ever dam Ash tree, start shooting every Sparrow, Pheasant and netting all the Smelt out of Superior that will take some time. But we can do it!!!  Insert crazy emoticon here: 😵
    • Lots of reality here.   Seriously, if we truly want to wipe out CWD, all deer/elk farms need to be wiped out, all natural deer scents need to be banned and taken out of production and every single deer/elk anywhere near a positive CWD infected area needs to be wiped out. Every last one of them! And then, all deer that are found in these areas for at least 10 years need to be destroyed.    Is this a sacrifice the state is willing to make? Not a chance! So we fall to the only other option, we adapt and live with it. 
    • It's always fun to rig up your own custom stuff then paying a bunch of money for things that may not work as well.  Looks like it should do the trick for you!  🙂
    • Dude, do you know how to use the emoticons?  It's always good to use one of these when making a Joke!  🙂 😀 😅 😂  😉
    • All deer in SE MN need to be wiped out.  90% herd reduction isn't going to stop the disease.  It is wreckless and stupid to do any less.  The whole state herd is going to go in the toilet if the SE guys don't get on the triggers and get their situation under control.  This talk of us vs the deer farms is a stupid smokescreen designed to try to take the focus off private land owners that don't want to cooperate with the mitigation plan.       Anything less will set the stage for CWD to roll hard to the north and get into the big woods where there will be zero chance of ever finding every deer.
