Found Hand Held GPS

13 posts in this topic

Last weekend while participating in the Jay Cooke muzzleloading deer hunt. I found a hand held GPS I would like to return the GPS without having to drive to his place but will if I have to.

He has home as a waypoint, with the maping info on the GPS it looks like he lives on Tonto St. in Champlin Mn.

Does anybody know of a wedsite where you can punch in GPS

coordinates and get an address?

Any help would be great.

I'm sure you could find a site out there, try to google it. Another this is you could use a turn by turn GPS (if you have access to one) and you should be able to type them in there.

Try google earth. It works very well and we have used it to map hunting drives on the land where we hunt.

Does anyone here live in Champlin? Could you mail it to a FM member and have them deliver it?

Very nice though! Your a credit to hunters everywhere.

I drive through Champlin everyday. If you like, give me your email and we can arrange delivery. It shouldn't be too hard to drop off to the right owner. cool.gif

Do a Google on "Anoka co tax" and you can find the tax info website. Do a property search then in the address search box use 17* Tonto for the address and put in Ramsey for the city. It comes up with 11 addresses and names for that street with addresses beginning with 17XXX...and lots more personal info. On Google Earth it looks like there are about 30 houses on that street. You can also try 151* tonto for another address and that has a lot more people on it.

I don't want to post everybodies names and addresses here.

If you want to find out you can on your own.

It's scary to find out what is available online!

      I second Crooked Lake. Super clear water too. I kayaked in there recently and was amazed at how many sunnies are in there. First calm wind day I get I'm gonna get the yak in there and bring my flyrod.

      I woke up early Saturday tired and letting all the excuses in my head convince me to go back to bed. Cold front, high winds, clear skies. Screw it, I'm going anyway!   Glad I did. The wind was rough for yak fishing but I found them stacked right off a weedline and caught 7 bass within an hour on a stretch less than 75 yds.    Ended the day with the pig of a bass pictured and a nice Pike for dinner. Once the sun came out and warmed up the water I got action on the flats. That's where the big bass and pike came from. 8 bass total, one nice pike, a few short strikes on the flats. Wind sucked and what the heck is up with needing a sweater on the first weeked of Summer?!?! I'm not in the South anymore haha.

      Despite the occasional rain shower and relentless wind, had a great day on Fish Lake. Decent sized pan fish,  several out of slot, and 3 "eaters"  Walleyes were caught . The kids and wife all caught fish at a pace that kept me busy baiting, netting..(repeat) for a few hours. Not only was I fueling the addiction, but gaining points for future fishing trips. The only low point was when we went "Island exploring", someone was either in a hurry or just completely selfish and left their campsite garbage strewn to the point that it filled a 13 gal garbage bag.

      I use a big zip tie that will slide on and off.

      Nice catch Cliff. Were you rigging or bobbering?

      Probably not what your wanting to hear,  but I bit the bullet for an LX High speed transducer a couple years ago for my LX-6. Run it a couple times before removing it from my boat and going with a Lowrance. I found that on plane I frequently lost sonar and hard to see in bright sun. Hard to eliminate the excess noise as well. Ended up taking a real hard beating on getting rid of it also. Just my opinion, but I recommend checking out the Garmin Strikers or comparable Lowrance instead for the money. Love my LX for the ice, but it will remain my ice unit.
