Found Hand Held GPS

7 posts in this topic

Last weekend while participating in the Jay Cooke muzzleloader deer hunt I found a hand held GPS unit.

Whoever lost it has his home as a waypoint.

I would like to find this person without having to drive to his house, I will if I have to. My question is does anyone

know of a website that I can punch in GPS coordinates to find a address? From the maping info in this unit he lives near 1512 Tonto St. NW. Champlin Mn.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I think if you use the google earth mapping features and enter the GPS coordinates they give an address.

The other thing to try would be to contact FM's own JNelson. He's a GIS/GPS expert. Email him at Joel@FishingMinnesota.com

Once you've got some locations try some phone calls from a reverse lookup. That person is going to be very glad they put home into their GPS and that you are such a good Samaritan.

I just wanted to let everyone know, I was able to locate the gentleman that lost the GPS unit.

Arrangements have been made for it's return.

Thank you to the guys that offered suggestions to help.

The world needs more honest people like you. I'm sure the guy was very grateful, or at least he should be!

      Small minnow raps, #2 mepps spinners, small spoons. Don't need anything else.

      What a great day jigging out in the mud. Little or no wind all day and it was pretty warm but fish were active, biting and large. A big change came yesterday on my close by spots that threw me for a loop but the fish a few miles away seem unphased. I will say it again a great day!

      In the summer they seem to be about 20' feet down over 50'-80' feet of water. We trolled small raps with what ever would get it down there. I also had down riggers to use.  You could try some deep hook and slip bobbers with a worm in some of the deeper bays to see if they will take it?  Good luck.

      I have a bait/rigging question. The kids and I were out on Big Watab chasing a suntan and when I told them that the lake has trout they wanted to try for them but I mostly fish sunnies and crappies. What would I need to get to fish for trout out there? Looking back in the forums I see that some guys use leadcore (I'm not buying new rod/reels) and some use bobbers. Any advice on a common bobber set up? Also, I have an "active" 10 year old so it seems that jigging works best to keep him busy, any advice on jigging for trout?

      Update! Water is way down! But I was able to get a smallmouth with a topwater plug.  And a catfish broke my leader off a  worm, was very confused. Going again tomorrow
