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.

      Ha!  Me too!  My father bought that last winter and was first voyage on ice. First ice on Leech was rough and those side by sides don't absorb all that well. . Still a good time.

      For holiday gift ideas, consider a locally made gift created from trees harvested in Minnesota. Wooden toys, handcrafts and keepsakes are a great green gift option. Wood is a renewable resource that is natural, nontoxic and eco-friendly.   “Wood products are great green gifts for both kids and adults,” said Kristen Bergstrand, DNR utilization and marketing program coordinator. “Uniquely hand-crafted and individually customized wooden gifts are a wonderful option for a person who has everything.” Wooden blocks, rocking chairs or horses, puzzles, rattles, picture frames and artisan bowls or wood crafts are unique items that are often passed down to future generations as family mementos. Thousands of items are made from wood harvested in Minnesota forests. About 30 percent of the state’s wood fiber comes from state forest lands. The Minnesota forest products industry brings $16.1 billion to local economies. The industry creates jobs and brings financial support to small and large manufacturing and retail businesses across the state. Making products from trees often requires less processing and energy than plastic or other products. Wood is also renewable and reusable. Most wood products can be recycled and wood waste can be converted into green energy as biomass. Well-managed forests grow back into a forest after harvesting. And buying wood products also helps the environment. Trees absorb carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas that causes global climate change, and store carbon in their wood. Locally made products from trees harvested in Minnesota use less fossil fuel for transportation than imported goods. Visit the DNR wood products webpage to learn more about the benefits of buying and using wood products. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
