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.

      I want to give an honest review of Steve and north county auto. He saw my post on here of a fisherman in need and offered his service. I looked around and could have taken my hub to get repaired at multiple places closer to me than Crystal, but decided to give another fisherman a try.    This was a perfect experience.  He was willing to meet me outside of normal business hours to accommodate my schedule. The stitch up appears totally solid (double stitched) and Steve even warranteed the repair. The price was more than fair and he's a nice guy to boot.    I'd definitely recommend this place if you're in need of canvas repair. He does a bunch of other things for the open water fisherman as well.    My apologies if this somehow violates any rules on the forum (I never looked) but my experience was a good one and wanted to pass it along.

      We did not go all the way out this weekend so I can't say for sure where 'most' were fishing.  Since you can literally go anywhere, there were no real "concentrations" of houses that I saw.  Everyone was spread out real nice except I did see quite a few houses fishing in closer to Pine, near the snowmobile trail, based on the distance (maybe a mile or mile and a half out?) I would guess they were "shallow" and not out to the basin.  Distance can be tough to judge so this is my approximation.   Some friends road sleds WAY north and were surprised that shortly after they set up a suburban came from the south and fished near them.  Like I was saying people are spread out.   Adrian's road now only goes out 11.5 vs. the 16 miles they were out a week ago.   Good Luck!

      Was on the boat Sunday got a little further past the 49 bridge. Is the 22 landing opening up at all? Anyone know how much ice is even out there? I would think we made a little.
