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.

      Not sure if some mentioned Sierra Trading Post. I buy my Costa's there and have always paid right around $50.00 for them.  Sign up for email and get a discount flyer, they always are having a sale and free shipping etc.

      All eyes on the forks now. Weather looks perfect for a steady slow release. Minimal impact this year but I'd bet this weekend and next week will be the worts of it.

      The MN DNR website shows the Big Fork just opening up upstream and the Little Fork open for about half of it's length upstream. Flows are high but have been higher in past years so may not be high enough to cause problems. I would think within 4 -5 days one will be able to tell how severe the spring rise in the Forks will be. If the upstream gages begin to drop soon it will be a good sign as it will indicate the big push from upstream is past.

      Got a Abu Garcia veritas medium heavy 7 foot rod paired with a revo sx 7:1 I believe ratio. Will this be a good spinner bait rod? I might play with some bigger bass jigs or 3/8 jig heads with swim tails. I have 2 other rods 7 foot mediums, one for cranks moderate fast action with Revo winch,  and the other all around use a veritas with revo s 6:4 also. tired of having to retie all the time. Should this work? I don't do the big football jig things much. and have spinning rods for wacky and small jigs. Just trying to get a better system worked out Thanks guys. Lots of help on here.

      Yes, good report!   I travelled 210 from Brainerd to Duluth and see the ice is getting dark but has only pulled away from shore in a few areas.  I didn't see anyone fishing but did see a few auger piles on the ice.  The piles suggested maybe 10-12 inches of ice.  It'll go soon.   One thing for sure is the stores are DONE with the ice season.  I picked up some custom rods from Northlander and want to put reels on em for this weekend but can't find any in lines anywhere!  Called around too.  Same story - all packed away to get the summer stuff out.
