David Walker, David Smith & Multiple Others Robbed
It seems that at the start of every year the first breaking news from the Elite Series, Opens or FLW Tour is that multiple boats were broken into at the first tournament. Former Elite Series Pro Glenn Delong had all of his gear stolen at the 2008 season opener at Harris Chain of Lakes. Charlie Hartley has been a victim to a early year break in as well.
Reports of a dozen or more boats being broken into at last weeks FLW EverStart Series event have surfaced. Now reports that at least eight anglers at the B.A.S.S. Open have had their boats broken into as well. David Walker posted on his facebook page that he and his roommate David Smith were both victimized. Both Walker and Smith had their Power Poles, rods, reels and electronics. They even took Walker's life jacket. According to Walker the eight boats were all cleaned out within about a 15min span.
