Anybody know where to rent a metal detector?

6 posts in this topic

I may have dropped an important metal piece out ice fishing. Anybody know where I can rent a metal detector? Hopefully I will find it in the house and not have to worry about it. Hopefully karma is good to me after finding a ipod on the ice this year and returning it to its owner.

I know people that have rented them from south suburban rental in Newport. I would give a call to the equipment rental places in your area to see if they have them also.

Ruddys rental on the south side of Forest lake has them. I assume it is for your shack out on Forest Lake. I rented one there a few years back to find a gold ring I lost while mowing the grass. Good luck!

Thanks guys. It is for a ring also. I try not to wear it when I go out because its a little big and comes off pretty easily so I took it off and put it in my pocket. Bad decision probably. I just hope its in the house so I don't have to tell the wife. Well on a good note its an excuse to make another trip out. Tunrevir- We moved the house again (I was against it though) over on lake 2 in the hole looking for some crappies. Have been catching fish but not many over 9. If you see the shack stop on my I still owe you a cold one.

My kid got a National Geographic metal detector for Christmas. It'll pick up a coin in the carpet. I think they're around $20 and available at Target. They probably won't work in the water thought.

      I always use only 1/2 crawler mainly because it is all that is needed to get walleyes to bite. It also more closely resembles the molting rusty crayfish and Mayfly nymphs that the walleyes are eating. The 1/2 crawler also works well when the walleyes are feeding on young-of-the-year perch. It works much better then using a crappie minnow on my rigs for some reason. I have tried both on different lines at the same time and the crawler will out fish the crappie minnow every time! Does not make sense when they are eating minnows, but that is the way it is. I always had problems with the walleyes stealing my bait when I used a whole crawler too. If I fed a whole crawler to the fish long enough for them to eat it, I almost always gut hooked the fish. One of my clients boated a 27-1/2 inch walleye today using 1/2 crawler, a red hook, and a green glow bead. Cliff

      I was wondering if and there is any good fishing in Hastings during the summertime lake Rebecca, lake Isabella, Vermilion River, or anywhere off the banks of the Mississippi? I haven't caught anything yet this year and I am itching to catch anything now. Just a fyi I just bank fish.   Thanks in advance!

      I'm debating whether to bring my small fishing boat on a camping trip with the inlaws last weekend iinJuly. Is it worth it fishing this time of year. We are staying in the Whipolt bay. If I do fish it may be after dark when kids are sleeping. Would be open to catching both walleyes and/or panfish. Send me advice please as I have fished the lake only once.

      Cliff, Why do you use a 1/2 crawler and not a whole one? I usually use a whole crawler on my Lindy. I caught this nice 27" tonight on a red #2 with a green soft bead and a big fat whole crawler.
