lost- black Ice rod and reel combo- FOUND!

8 posts in this topic

I know this is going to be a long shot-

but if any one is out fishing on (lake name removed), and lands a fish (probably a pike) that is pulling this rod and reel, It would be greatly appreciated if it were returned.

thanks- Now Im sure you all want the story.

I out today, and had set my rod down, bail open in order to go drill a few holes. once I finished the holes, I returned to where the rod once was, and it was GONE! somewhere out there a poor fish is dragging a pretty decent rod and reel combo behind him.

Well, today I was out, in about the same spot.

I hooked into a nice fish on my jigging rod, and I had my friend go pull up a tip up that was close by to prevent a tangle.

attached to the tip up ( which had not been set off) was a 13 inch perch. tangled around the hook is some blue fishing line, and my rod!

ten minutes later I landed the fish.

here is a parting shot of the release, the recovered rod is clearly shown in the background.

      nephew was fishing a bobber and had another hole about 4 feet away. dropped the vex in and saw a mark and said, I'll get that crappie. Wham!  thought it was a northern. wrapped into his bobber line and had a great fight.  totally surprised when the perch popped up the hole. lol

      Hey, I expressed what I have heard from the locals.   We have been summer folks for quite a while so get some access to the feelings of the locals, like our next door neighbors.      The Landing seems to have made a deliberate business decision to not target local folks but rather upscale tourists.   That is their privilege.    I choose not to patronize them.     As a guy I used to know at IBM said  "that's not the target market".  I am not the Landing's target market.      See you at the Crescent.   (or South Switch.)   (or the VFW in cook for burger night)    Lots of places to go if I want upscale.  Whistling Bird in Gilbert, several places in Ely, etc.

      Plus+1 the lake landings are going to take a huge hit this week.

      Blocks. Make sure it's on blocks. In case it's unclear, use blocks.  I'm more concerned about the accesses than my house. Areas with a slope and melting snow run off are going to be a mess. Add rain to the mix and it's worse. I'll be checking on my house daily and be prepared to make the move off the lake if needed.

      Does the wording even change in the report or just the date?
