Lost: tackle box full of rod building materials

4 posts in this topic

We had a tackle box full of fishing rod building supplies (mostly tiptops for rods) fall out of the back of a pickup yesterday (cover was on and endgate didn't get closed). It was lost somewhere between Baudette and Fisher, MN- most likely closer to Baudette. If anyone sees this along the side of the road, I would greatly appreciate it if you would let me know. The contents aren't worth much to most people, but it's very valuable to my dad- not having them will slow him down a bunch and require a ton or reordering.

Please keep your eyes and ears open.

Thanks a bunch!

Scoot, sorry to hear about your tackle box. Hope you have the luck I had a few years ago. I had a brand new Plano filled with lures etc at least $200 worth, somehow it flew out of the boat going up to LOW. I had sent the name plate to Plano for engraving my name and address and had stuck it on. When I returned home that evening there was a message left on our message recorder with a telephone number of the party that found it. It was found about 30 miles from my home with very little damage and all the tackle in it. Hope you will recover yours also.

Thanks Kingfisher- I'm not holding my breath, but I'm hopeful.

      Thanks Cliff. It looks like I'll bring tall boots, ice crampons, and snowshoes for my walk across the lake on Friday! Who knows what I'll encounter

      I fished north of Two Harbors on Sunday and it was a mess.  The plowed areas had a good 4-5" of standing water, the rest was slop and slush about 1/2 way up to my knee. There was plenty of ice, and there were 4-5 pickups out there, but I scouted it out with the ATV and elected to walk to my spot rather than risk getting stuck in the muck.  This was of course before the rain Monday, so I can only imagine what it's like now.

      Del,   You know what they say about opinions and a certain part of the anatomy don't you. That said, you've made your point but it's now time that you step out for some fresh air and give this rant of yours a break.     Good luck to the Landing's new owners. Restaurants are a tough gig anywhere and I sincerely wish you the best and hope you'll succeed.   John

      Although down riggers aren't required, they sure are nice.  I'very really become a fan of copper lately.  The newer stuff is easier to work with and has caught more fish for me over lead core over on Lake Michigan.      I agree that unless you're using the suffix lead core the 47s don't leave a lot if room for backing.  Definitely use braid for backing.  I like to splice 20 ft of 30 lb mono between the core and backing to clip boards to.   I do the drag upgrades too.  When you get the diameter down the drags aren't as forgiving.

      CigarGuy, We did not venture out very far from the Landing, walking distance only! The ice had about 3" or 4" of soup on top everywhere. We fished in 12' to 14' depth on the first drop off. The kids iced a bunch of small perch jigging with small jigs and wax worms and missed a couple of pike on tip-ups. Fun day for all of us! Cliff
