I picked up a nice rod on the road between island lake and Duluth 8/30. Describe it if it's yours.

Wow, thanks guys for the great welcome!

I was on my way to Proctor for the stock car races when I found the rod. I really hope the owner See's this because it's a expensive set up. I'll be putting it in the Duluth news paper as well.

I live in Tower and spend some time on the big-v, so I have room in my rod locker for another rod but, the person that lost it would be out a lot of money not to mention that it could be his favorite rod! And I have to be honest about it and give the person a chance at getting it back.

I did lose a rod about two weeks ago. It was a guide series pro select rod 7' MH with a Abu Garcia 6600C3 reel and it also had a rod sock on it. If it is mine let me know or shoot me an email at hols0094@d.umn.edu

Jaws, let me be the first to say your an honorable person for returning this equipment. Many would have celebrated their luck in finding it and put it in the rod rack at home. Hats off to you.

Great job Jaws!

For those who use rod socks make sure you strap them rods down. All those socks do is turn your rods into kites. I quit using them for this reason unless Im putting the rods in the rod lockers.

Im glad you guys got your rods back.

Wow guy's thanks cool.gif I guess it does pay to be honest!

I guess I looked at it this way, the person that lost the rod I'm sure was pretty bummed out when he noticed it was gone. I sure would have been! frown.gif It's great that we found the owner and made another fishing buddy happy, that's what life's about. ( I'm sure some of you guy's asked around also, so hat's off to yous also for the help! ) Until next time, Good luck fishing and take care!

There is NO WAY Jaws could feel as good about finding/scoring a lost rod and reel as he does finding the owner and handing it back. We should all be so lucky to be on either end of this "transaction".

      sunday hopefully back on the ice  
    • eyeguy 54
      and they will smell minty fresh!

      First Welcome to FM, They definitely can be caught during the day but the water is really clear usally on that lake and I have found over the years of fishing it that the evening into the dark bite can be way better. Don't rule out trying to target those fish you saw.  Some options are fishing  on a cloudy day, or try down sizeing your presentation as you may surprise yourself and put a few topside.  
    • IceHawk
      Electrical tape for me nice and smooth. If your worried about the residue at the end of the season a little tip is rub  toothpaste on the cork work it around then wash in water.  Cleans them up takes the scum off and they look good as new when done. 
    • IceHawk
      I broke a bunch also at first  my bear paws just squeeze a little to hard! You definitely need to be carefull when putting them on to much pressure and another one bites the dust. Great bobber and concept can be used for a slip or fixed bobber just a little fragile. 
    • IceHawk
      Some good sticks there!
    • IceHawk
      Looks good Royce hopefully you can put it to good use soon. The ice is sure getting thick if it keeps up I will be ordering a extension for my K drill soon or bring out the  StrikeMaster and extension.
