stolen sled

7 posts in this topic

some low life scum bags stolen my sled wednesday between 2:30 and 3:50 pm. yep thats right in the daylight. stole the trailer and sled right off my 4-wheeler. they left the 4-wheeler and my for sale sign. i found the trailer later that night less then a mile away. followed tracks as far as we could and lost them after many twists and turns when they hit the main trail.

2002 polaris 700 edge xc - red. nice with less then 600 miles on it (well at least before it was stolen).

see anything fishy please give me a call - insurance is not going to cover this and i am at a huge loss on it....... 218-824-0682

you should see if the police could do a reverse search on the 4-wheeler that the bad people left. Maby They could trace it back to a address. If It was ever registerd, or not stolen. I always think lock down everything, LIve in the twin citys for a year you learn not to trust anyone.

There was a snowmobile in the median last night at 77 and 371 south, looked smashed up. There were two police cars and another car parked nearby, not sure what the deal was with that. It was at about 8:30 p.m..

Nothing against the authorities on this one...but do your best on getting the word out, as you have here on the forum. You might be surprised. We have had 2 dirt bikes stolen, on two separate occasions in the Brainerd area. Through communicating it with friends and acquaintances I was amazingly able to track both of them down eventually.

As much as I would like to say the authorities were a big help on tracking and investigating the thefts, that just wasn't the case. They were a big help in the 'recovery' once we had found out some information on the location of on of the bikes though.

Both of the items were found many weeks after they were stolen. Don't give up!

Good luck with the recovery. Thats really a downer. Each year when we get a big snowfall we hear of junk like this. We'll keep our eyes out here around the bait shop.

      Based on Cliff's water temp of 38°F, I'm not too sure about Dec. 3-5.  Think it will be more like Dec. 7-9.  I have ice fever and I need a cure.  Last year's first ice PB of 29", 8½# shown below would definitely cure that, but it may not be until Dec. 15-16 now.

      Hey all,   I'm sure everyone has heard, but we're finally getting some nice freezing weather heading in from up north (https://weather.com/weather/tenday/l/56303:4:US). Early next week nightly lows will be sub 10's. So with ice season quickly approaching, I'd like to know what everyone usually does getting prepared to walk on water. As a newbie to ice fishing (only done it the last two seasons), I'm curious to see how everyone preps their gear and what other things you all do before going out on the ice. I finally got my hands on a nice flasher and power auger to add to the rest of my gear, any suggestions for nifty equipment to help make things easier?    This is open for any discussion on any ice fishing tips for newer fishers! Please feel free to ask questions or discuss your prep process for the season. Let's all hope for this forecast to follow through and get some good ice out there.    -JK

      Forecast temperature-wise looks favorable for ice mid- to late-next week, but it does not look like the winds are going to cooperate.

      Would be nice to get some ice that's for sure. No doubt these forums have gone cold. 5-6 years ago there would be dozens of posts daily just on this thread. Maybe the newness of these forums has wore off or because everything has been hashed over a couple hundred times I don't know. I'm ready for some ice fishing I know that.
