Been getting further behind on my retirement / relocation project every day. Tuesday evening I couldn't stand it; the white bass run is on in the San Jacinto River and I needed a tug drug fix. I called a buddy who has been bugging me to fish and told him to meet me at the river. I got there first and waited for him at the gate to the property I have access to. I rigged the half weight and went ahead and rigged the two weight also, since the wind was blowing pretty hard. As he arrived I set them in the bed of my truck, tips over the tailgate, and led him down the trail to the river. I backed into a side trail far enough for him to pull in and leave the main trail open. I donned my waders and opened the tailgate and found both rods snapped. Apparently a branch got them as I backed in. Aaarrrrrghhhhhhh!!!!!!

Rotten luck, for me the disappointment would've been no fishing on a hot bite. Sorry about your rods.
