Lost Fish house and Auger on Lake Francis

10 posts in this topic

My nephew was fishing on Lake Francis Jan 5th or 6th and his tailgate opened on his truck somewhere from the west end and when he got home north of Elysian. He lost a 2 man fish house and a power auger. If anyone has heard any talk of finding these or more items please respond. He feels pretty bad about it because they were his Dad's. Thank you.

Your right thanks for the help. I'm sure some kind of reward could be involved for the return.

He is also my grandson, this is quite a loss for him. The fishouse liciness was still on the fishhouse so who ever found it knows who it belongs to. I hope they do the right thing.

Hawkeye, I believe that he went off the West end of Francis towards Marysberg church back to school or something. Not sure on the brand of fish house, but I know that the auger was a jiffy.

Hey this is the guy who lost the fish house and auger. It was a wilderness series 2 man fish house. The Auger was a Jiffy that cut an eight inch hole. I was leaving lake francis, the west access, and heading towards marysberg to show my friends the way back to st.peter and when i stopped to let them pass me they told me my fish house and auger was gone. So, it was dropped between the west access of Francis and Marysberg somewhere and i drove back and forth for like half an hour looking for it but had no luck, so someone has it. My dad's liscense is on the zipper of the door so they know whose it is. If I do get the stuff back there will be a reward. Thanks for the help.

      So, what was YOUR ice show score of the day!? I'm heading down on Sunday to see what scraps I can dig up. Absolutely more excited than I should be considering the only ice I've seen so far is the kind that fits in a glass..

      Seeing it's only your second year find buddy to go with as rock said. I even bring a second set of dry clothes and footwear. I am to big mess with thin ice I need 6 inches as rick said early varies so much so some where there is half as much ice.    Safety gear check include ice cleats as i have seen enough broken arms happen. Check your gear test the vexilar hook it up and turn it on to see if it runs or just hook up the charger. I use the drill plate so I charge all my batteries and with blade protecter on I make sure it works. My little sled is ready to haul my gear.    I go light during early ice so fill so fill up my plactics container and restock my jig boxes. Make sure my set ups have new line and pick my favorite set ups to take with. I can add some photos later
