Vandalism

I went down to lindstrom for a few hrs of fishing between 7:00 and 9:00 Pm and someone takes my driver side mirror off my truck looks like they pried it out with a screw driver. looks like they new what they were after the remote motor and all cleanly removed, what a shame people have to resort to this kind of crap. Anyone else have any trouble at this launch? I have been here 15 times this year with no problems. Theres and extra 47 bucks added to todays fishing trip because of some lame A $ $ punk.

Sorry to hear about that. All for a $50 part is just about as dumb as it can get. Would be nice to find them.

Amazing isn't it?? Not at a launch, but a while back, someone came into my yard at night, dropped my tailgate, and removed my tail light assemblies. Left the wiring harness, just took the lenses. And these weren't fancy aftermarket things, just stock, regular old lenses. I couldn't flippin' believe it! Someone must have broken theirs and decided I should donate mine. Makes you furious, and question the sort of people that are out there these days.

Guess you don't realize how much you pay for used assemblies on Ebay??

Would be sort of ironic to buy "new" ones off of Ebay and end up getting your own back.....

Yeah this was the Chisago public launch. between 7:00 and 9:00 pm on the 16th. I was next to a real nice white Denali and a maroon Suv with a bunch of Frankies stickers who had been there much longer then I had and it didn't look like nothing was wrong with those vehicles. Just dumb luck that I brought someone my mirror at that time and that place so they could have it.

      Cook, MN facebook page has a picture and info on it.  I don't know how to post a link, but here's the post-minus the photo.   The combination of record mild temperatures in late February and more seasonable temperatures in early March, has prompted dramatic ice movement on Lake Vermilion.... The south shore of Birch Point, which faces Big Bay, has seen some of the most extensive damage, as the ice has twisted lift docks, damaged boat houses, downed trees, and rearranged sizeable chunks of shoreline. Only a handful of docks along the heavily-developed lakeshore have so far escaped damage from the ice. Many docks have been damaged beyond repair. The pressure of expanding ice is typically relieved out in the lake, where large pressure ridges often form. But those ridges didn’t form as usual this year, and that left the shorelines vulnerable to the immense power of expanding ice. Lake property owners are likely to be shocked when they arrive back at their cabins and lake homes later this year. And the cost of repairs could be especially painful since, in many cases, the damage is likely not covered by insurance. “It will depend on their individual policies,” said Donna Mosher, with the Tower-Soudan Agency, which serves many Lake Vermilion property owners. She said standard insurance policies typically don’t cover ice movement, which can be a frequent source of property damage in areas where thick ice builds up in winter. Many property owners on Vermilion and other larger area lakes have turned to lift-out docks to minimize their risk of damage, but this year’s unusual conditions are leaving many of those docks damaged or destroyed as well. Some property owners do obtain insurance that includes a specific schedule or rider to cover more expensive docks, according to Mosher, but that’s usually the exception rather than the rule. “I’ve had to tell people ‘no’ already,” said Mosher. “It’s unfortunate.”

      The good news is you can't lose!  Let us know what you decide.

          Downriggers are not necessary but if you use them this time of year, don't go down  deep. I used to use boards but they were more complicated for others on my boat to use so it's small dipseys off the side or a clean line straight back. Spoons and sticks work well this time of year   Shallow and high. One year, I ran DR in the spring with the counter reading 6 feet.

      No problem, I always try to help out another fisherman whenever I can.  Squarebill crankbaits 12# fluoro would be good, but if you're talking lipless crankbaits I'd run that on 17# as well.  Here's how I have my baitcasters setup:   6'6" MH - 50# braid (Swim jigs, and topwater frogs) 7' MH - 15# mono with a  18" - 17# fluoro leader (Spinnerbaits/Chatterbaits) 7' MH - 17# fluoro (Jigs, Lipless Crankbaits) 7' M - 12# fluoro (Squarebill crankbaits)   Worms, tubes, jerkbaits and topwater poppers I use a spinning rod
