Kudo's to the Carver County Sheriff Dept.

17 posts in this topic

At the beginning of the year the Carver County Sheriff caught a couple of thieves on Waconia. If anybody had a house broken into or any equipment taken, you are suppose to call the sheriff dept to claim your property.

A job well done, the Sherrif Dept presence on Waconia the last couple of years has been tremendous...

Waconia has been a hot bed for breakins for west metro lakes.

It probably happens more then we think on all lakes. I see a lot of suspicious activity where I am at now that I have started to spend nights in mine.

I've been fishing the lake for over 20 yrs. and it is a hotbed for breakins/vandalism. It goes in streaks.. 90% of the time it's high school kids. Lots of times they are just out to vandalize. Everyone keep a suspicious eye out for one another. I always said I'd love to catch one of those little (Contact US Regarding This Word) breaking into anyones house because they'd pay the piper. I have had a house out there for probably the last fifteen years and had it broken into/vandalized at about 4-5 times. One year some jerk just went around running into houses with their vehicles. Ours was one . Didn't do major damage ,but just pushed the house about 20 ft. off the holes , but some other houses got it bad.

It happens on most lakes. I take everything home with me everynight.

There is only a couple of officers that are out on the lake, and it being a pretty big lake, they rely on us guys out there fishing to watch out for our fellow fisherman. I have called a few times when something didn't look right in my area. Was about to call them a while back about some kids that were going darn fast and whipping donuts by a bunch of houses, they almost hit a house. but as I picked up my phone, the cops were already on them....

danny berg -

can they be busted for just screwing around on the lake (wipping donuts etc.) do you call a local # or 911.

Last night on Prior I watched a guy drive around some houses, drove up to a shack and appeared that he was about to attempt pushing it but then he seen me standing out on the ice and he took off.

It's amazing the activity I have seen since I have started to spend nights in my house and park my vehicle a ways from the shack. Almost enough to make me want to pack heat when I fish.

I was told by the cops on Waconia just to dial 911. but I have used the local # also...

As for driving on the ice, as far as I know, the same laws apply as on land, except I wish they would put a speed limit on the ice for vehicles. Like 15 MPH. That's my personal speed limit.

I don't even lock the house anymore. Rather have them open it and see nothing then break in for nothing and ruin it.

I had the pleasure of gaphing someone back in my college days. Sleeping in my shack and they broke the window waking me up. Hand comes in, WACK!!!!! Lost my gaph, but got the perp good. smile.gif

Yep, the best thing is to just leave it unlocked and take everything with you when you leave.

A friend parks his trailer house here because I'm so close to Minnetonka. It's a big one with four seats and eight holes. It's a pain, but I haul it back and forth every time I fish. Have to have it locked tight even at my own place.

Last winter some kids tried to take my old plow truck. A month later I found it on a side street only a 1/2 mile away. Never felt so lucky to have an old truck that won't start or run cold, unless you know the tricks! They probably got tired of pushing it and just left before they got caught. I don't leave my keys in it any more. They will eventually get caught.

I had to answer this post I am the one who caught the two individuals on Lake Waconia. I fish the lake myself and have been victim to the house break-ins myself. It was great pleasure to finally catch a couple red handed. How ever the rest is up to the courts now. I did learn something disturbing about the two. They were released the next day on a minor 300 dollars cash bail. The only thing I can say is keep calling the suspicious activity in we need to keep our lake an enjoyable place.

      We only fished for 5 hours (only 2 hours were worthwhile 29 ft).  
    • Sushilicious
      OK so day before father's day we had terrible weather. 1st spot was in 14 ft of current n we caught 4 eyes. Did c a sturgeon role but waste of time other than that. Next spot 6 eyes still a wasted time cause of the weather but the old man did caught a 20 in so it wasn't all that bad. But once the weather allowed we catch  26 eyes n in 29 ft of water n one was 24 in.

      Definitely have 2 disagree with with u 2. I understand the drive n the worry but if you've fished the csn chain for 10+ years there shouldn't be a worry 2 find a campsite cause you've driven past plenty of them. Also we're in the same boat regardless of the travel distance to fine a campsite. Yes it is nice 2 have a guaranteed spot but since they went 2 paid 2 camp regulation they have taken out a number of campsites so it limits options. ALSO U R WAY WRONG ON SAYING MORE PPL R AT THE PARK NOW. I went last Saturday  (day before father's day) n we seen like 4 or 5 more boats than canoes. It's nice for ppl who don't know the csn chain but it's terrible for the economy.   Fyi. First time I went fishing on the chain I went lake trout fishing on David......... I was 6 weeks old ......... I'm 32 now..... my dad's been fishing the csn chain for 65+ years    P.s. love how there's less pressure=better fishing.

      Hey! Does anyone know any brooks/steams/rivers that would be full of trout? Preferably near lakeville, mn but ill travel!

      Nice fish, Jeff. And good lesson on 1/2 crawlers, Cliff. I'm off the water for a few days with family doings, but should report I've seen a lot of mayflies in Frazer and near the portage. Clouds on the sonar and slicks of the water. I'm guessing it's not the big hatch, but it's providing a lot of food for fish. good luck out there.

      Just got back into town from a slightly too long "vacation" dealing with relatives. Anywho, how has the fishing been on Superior, are the fish local or have they migrated N.E?

      I just bought a new Elite 7TI and the sun cover it came with doesn't really snap on very securely.  I'd say it just rests loosely on the outside.  It won't fall off if I flip it upside down, but it feels like it wouldn't stay on going down the highway or withstand any sort of jarring.  It takes hardly any pressure to pull it off.  Is this normal or is it a defect?  I've never owned a graph with a sun cover so I'm not familiar, but I imagined it would be a lot more snug.

      I have a Lowrance Elite 7 and was curious what lake chip most of you recommend for Lake of the Woods.  The insight pro chip that came with my unit is very basic for up there and was looking for a more detailed chip.  I'm not sure what brands are compatible with the Lowrance and which ones aren't.        Thanks in advance!

      Glad it didn't take a swim. My buddy had one of the cheaper Minnkotas deploy while he was up on plane using the main motor.  Needless to say it was a weak pin in the release system. It was a rental boat so he didn't have to deal with it. Bent the heck out of the stem portion. It was fully modified!   Didnt know now you were still going up to LOTW. Thought you were selling the place. Assuming you don't have the Sportcraft anymore since I don't think you'd put a Minnkota on that. If you still have the Sportcraft I know someone that might be interested in it.    I head up to South end out of Wheelers point tomorrow after work. Up for 2 weeks. Touch base with me if you are coming up or have the Sportcraft still for sale.   Ryan
