I know this probably isn't the place for this, but your the people that might run across this stuff.

In a rash of garage break-ins in Benton County this weekend, many

of us lost fishing tackle, Honda generators, Mathews & Hoyt bows,

Lowrance X-25c, camo clothes, trail camera, ice & summer rods,

tools, saws,etc...

Take it from first hand experience, it sucks. If anyone hears of

a bunch of "hot" stuff..Call Benton County Sheriff

I hate to jump to conclusions but it almost seems like this is the new thing....not that stealing is a new thing. But taking these sorts of things. Down here in SW MN we have had quite a few thefts very similair sounding to this. Like I said, I dont want to jump to conclusions but are the young kids doing this? Is it their new way to make money to pay for something they really want. It just seems like the merchandise that is being stolen around here are items they could pawn off with no questions asked.

Probably sounds wierd but we never had to worry about locking our garage and before we had kids, our house went several nights without being locked. Now everything gets locked up tight. Too bad cause I cant help but think they are young adults and it really makes a person stereotype some of them...probably unfairly and unjust but its the unfortunate truth.

HoleHopper,

You are exactly right....rage, etc. If I ever see anything

happening in or by my garage again, I'll do what I need to do

and ask questions later...I thought I was a nice guy, until now.

Everyone....mark your stuff, take pictures, alarm your garages, etc. You just can't imagine what it's like.

Also, who buys this stuff? and if you run across anyone selling

sports gear, tools etc, call someone.

Closer to home, I had my portable Eskimo fish house ripped off right out in front of Izatys last weekend. I have left it out numerous times with no incident, but somebody decided they needed a free fish house. At least I didn't have anything of value in the fish house when stolen. There were a rash of fish house breakins and thefts last winter in mille lacs if I recall postings....

I have no dought that you are a nice guy. Just becouse we all need to stand up for ourselves and what belongs to us does not meen that we are not nice. Nice does not involve letting someone steal from us. That is totally different.

spankster,Does your Eskimo have any identifying features? I fish the south end a lot.

sorry to hear about that. Check Craigs list and Ebay (seriously)! You'd be surprised what pops up on there.

I agree with bigbartguy. Check craigslist for sure. I had a bday party a couple weeks ago and a ps3 was stolen and the next day it was on craigslist.

      Tulibee? Last February on Frazer Bay

      Where else can you go and pull so many big walleyes? Just go in knowingly that you aren't going to keep anything. Sleeper option is better than portable . Limited action during the day anyway. Now sunset to sunrise can be game on all night long. We put back 14 over 22" last weekend. When I say we it was myself, wife and two kids under 7. This lake is a blast. Good Luck

      Was out last Saturday and moved a couple times then into the house for the overnight. No luck on walleyes but did see a lot of small perch on the camera at multiple locations and depths from 15' to 33'. It was still a fun time and that is the allure of Mille Lacs for me more than bringing anything home for a meal. I guess it is all what you are looking to accomplish. Have fun regardless!

      Last year I grabbed my new license a few days early and hit a lake east of here.  Had my new license in my pocket.  2 people on the lake and I got checked by a young CO that walked out from the access. Nice guy. Showed it to him and he said this is for the new season. I had the old one on shore in the car and told him that. He said no problem and mentioned to carry it till the new season starts.  Checked my bucket and we visited a bit. Then he walked about 1/4 mile to the only other person I saw out to check him. So carry the current one  if you buy early. 
    • eyeguy 54
      better buy your new one on the 24th and carry both so you dont end up in jail...

      Mine says it expires 2/25 this year. Either that or it' too work out to read.

      Fished 4 days this last weekend. 1 tullibee, 1 walleye, sun up to sun down drilled and moved several times. Fun to fish but came home and limited out on sunnies on a small lake near me the allure of the big pond is over for me. Just my 2 cents good luck and have fun if you go.

      When I purchased them at a sports show, the guy doing the demo recommended the small duckbill pliers he was using sold by Menard’s. I tried using a small needle nose as well as a leather man, and ruined quite a few. I got the duck bills at Menard’s and that was the ticket, just like the guy said! I think the pressure is spread more evenly over the stop.
