fish house break in on ottertail

Recommended Posts

walleye_jigger

I heard tonight that there was some fish house break-in's. I haven't been able to check my house yet, but I will this weekend. What kind of people do these things. They must be pretty poor or jealous of what other people are able to afford. Just wondering if anybody else has heard if this has happened.

I heard that the break-ins are up to a total of 20 houses now. I talked to a few gentleman that had there houses broke into, these people have not been stealing anything, just breaking everything. They busted up his Vexilar then snapped all his jigging rods then broke out the windows. But they did not steal anything. I dont know but I believe that they are kids... I guess they are traveling by four-wheelers? I just hope that over Christmas break it does not get worse... Some how we need to catch these people and use them for an example. I mean throw the book them. I just dont understand why they find it neccessary to do this.. I put mine under insurance just in case..

That in my mind is worse then stealing it. At least if they would steal it somebody would be using it. But to just break everthing, that's totally uncalled for. Was this just one night that this happened, or is it occuring again and again?

Havin' Fun

I know many people are now just leaving their houses unlocked, and taking everything out when they leave. Now when those rat punks come, it isn't any fun.

The way I see it is if they are in my house there on my property and If I ever caught those little punks in my house me and my friend Louisville Slugger would have our way with them. I don't care how old they are. Sometimes a good old *** kicking is the only thing those punks understand. You leave your house unguarded trusting the other fisherman and this sort of thing happens. (Horrible) Well I hope they catch them and throw the book at them hard and make them replace everything.
We fisherman need to look out for each others fish houses and watch odd behavior going on around others houses even if you have no idea who's ice house your checking out. I know I would really appriciate it if someone went over and stopped some punks from vandelizeing my house. Well good luck getting them.

FISH AWAY

A little upbeat note for you folks that had your houses broke into. I had my house out on Swan Lake 2 years ago, got a phone call that my house had been broke into. They broke down the door to get in and stripped it clean, close to $1,000. in damage and missing items, found out that they ended up ripping portibles open and breaking into many others also. One night a gentleman was fishing when a guy and gail came to his fishhouse asked how the fishing was then left on a snowmoblie, he heard the sled stop, then like a ripping sound, called the cops who came out and nabbed them.They had to have destroyed and taken over $10,000.00 worth of property. I got everything replaced and money to fix fish house. They went to court, only thing is they were kids got some community service and had to pay for everything, witch I am sure they are still working on. I received a check from them a year latter. Thing is these people are stupid and will come back because they think they can get away with it. Keep your eye and ears open and they will get caught. Good Fishing.

Don't kids read books or even play video games anymore. I am guessing sooner or later they will be caught. It makes it hard to enjoy something you love to do when you have to worry about some punks damaging your property.

Some guys did leave their house open, but the vandals still destroyed the inside and broke the stove...

Too bad its not legal to boobie trap your house when your not there. Do something like when the door opens they get a dousing of paint that just wont wash off easily. I think the paint would be alot more humane than what I was considering...Might make identifying them alot easier! Just a thought.....Paul

Boy this would have really ticked me off. We left ours out there saturday night with our stuff in there and i was worried something like this might happen. But there were a few houses that had guys in all nite there werent to far away. Not real sure i could control myself if I ever caught someone break into mine or someone elses house!

Paul,
Me and a friend were thinking the same thing. All you would need is one of those deer hunting cameras that mount on a tree with motion sensors on the wall opposite of the door or on top of the house were your door is so it takes pictures of whoever comes by or breaks in. You would need to build a strong plexy glass box & mount it were they wouldn't be able to steel it. Maybe just even put it on a tall sturdy pole on top of the house they can't reach or break down.
Could also have a motion sensor set up like a vehicle has were a horn goes off and you would have a red cop car cherry like light atop of your house telling other fisherman somethings going down.
Just some ideas we were thinking of. Need to do something. They are just going to keep doing it unless we fisherman figure out some security.
The only other security system I was thinking of was a electrical shock as soon as you touch the door that would nock the robbers right on there asses. That might teach them a lesson. Probably get myself accidentally though instead so that one isen't the greatest idea.

A few years back I had my house broke into on a lake here north of the cities, They cleaned me out along with 20 or so other houses. My ins. company is from down south so to their amazement when I spoke of $250.00 for auger, $100 stove plus $500-700 in fishing equipment, poles skimmers locator etc they were a lil shocked, but still paid it. # weeks later I lost my keys and brought a bolt cutter with and a new lock, Well some watchfull eye called me in and with in 10 minutes I had the DNR pounding on the door. from a report of a break in.. I laughed and sent him on his way with a big thanks for the quick response..

      Great video Curt, for as much of it that I could see. Keep up the good work, and one question, Are there any live emerald shiners around the Baudette area to be had, or just frozen ones?
    • eyeguy 54
      Its a little stiffer than my titanium spring boober and much more sensitive.  I like it  better than the 27 inch ul ticklestick. Only used 3 and 4 mm jigs so far. Thumbs up from me.

      2/18/18     Got out on an area lake an hour before sunrise Saturday. Got a bunch of crappies until they slowed about 9 am. Most between 9.5 and 11 inches. Sunfish started biting about sunrise and bit all morning. Half of them were 8 to 8.5 inches. Most of the rest were 7 to 7.5 inches. Kept two meals of fish--released the rest. 1/32 ounce VMC Tungsten Tubbies tipped with a single wax worm or two red Eurolarvae fished just above some weeds in thirteen feet of water caught fish after fish. Lots of good ice on area lakes. Even though walleyes and pike close in just over a week and wheel houses can't stay out unattended soon, still a lot of good ice fishing for panfish to come. Will have plenty of ice for a while, so get out and enjoy the peace and quiet and fast crappie and sunfish action that March will bring. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Had a chance to rub shoulders and fish with some of the ice team guys today. Great bunch of guys we had some good laughs and of course discussed plenty about fishing. Even shared a few hotspots. The hands on they give the people that sign up for this event is absolutely amazeing! From hands on to tips on everything to do to make your day on the ice way more productive. From what I witnessed it would be well worth the investment to sign up for one of there events , if you are new to fishing or heck even a seasoned angler.  Fished with one guy from Nebraska said he has done 5 of these events and has enjoyed everyone of them.  Fun day for sure 
    • AlwaysFishing23
      Royce, how’s the sensitivity Is the tip soft like a tickle stick and how’s quality seem? About same price as a tickle stick I see may have to try one for next season. If It passes with flying colors do you it must be good! Tough day for me not much happening went from about 8-29 FOW and just nothing. Found perch in about 19 but even they seemed finicky and would only hit the dead stick. A bit windy on the lake today to!
    • The Chemist
      Yes that would be the one. A friend of mine sent it to me. The guy who got it is a friend of his nephew. 
    • The Chemist
      So that explains the traffic and also the one where they were shooting video of what appeared to be about a drill type auger. Did drive by an ice team truck on the way out also.
    • The Chemist
      The warmer weather has brought alot of people out to the area. We are waiting for the later bite. Most are setup in shallowet water. Haven't marked fish yet but tendto see them at sunset.    Be careful with all the holes being drilled! I found one that was covered back in, got my shin, luckily not my ankle.
    • eyeguy 54
      Started out in 26 feet this morning and had 5 dandy crappies in 15 minutes then it was over. moved a mile and found a few dandy gills in 16 feet. And a couple bass.  Day 2 with the new rods and liking them more.
