Recent Thief's in the area

6 posts in this topic

Just wanted to report that there has been some thief's in the area as of late. About three weeks ago my parents arrived to there property to notice that someone had came and stole there deck pad & chair. Went back up last weekend & the thief's were back again. They took anything of any value that was outside & also took the hinges off a couple of out buildings & cleaned them out as well. My parents just bought this property a year ago & started to build on it this year. NOT A VERY WARM WELCOMING.mad.gif All of the people that we've talked to up there have been great but it's just disappointing that some people have to go snooping around some else's property & steel stuff.

We live in the area and have for many years. We have not heard of any thieves in the area. Where is your property located. None of our friends have had problems

JKing, sorry about the incidents, I believe it is very isolated, been in business in the Kab area for 19 years, this type of thing is very unusual. Have your parents report this to the sherrif. I have a feeling its somebody very familar with your folks travels and they knew when and what to hit. There are seasonal people here all there lives with no problems. I would venture to say most folks here never even lock doors, so go figure, and do some detective work. guts

You were right Guts it was a very isolated incedent. I don't think anyone has to worry about it happening to them. My parents figured out where their stuff was dissapearing to & got it resolved.

Was up over the weekend mainly working on the shack but got out fishing for a couple of hours on Sat. evening. Caught one Small mouth by the ship wrecks & I think we found a couple more spots worth trying again next time we're up. grin.gif

JKing,

There are some very nice reef structures between the Shipwrecks, and Yewbush Is. Snaggy, but fishable. I know there is also a shallow ledge shelf between the South Shipwreck rock pile and the adjacent Grassy GroupIsland.

I'm happy to here it was an isolated incident as I thought, don't like that kind of stuff happening. guts

      1-18-17 Fishing Report. The fishing on LOTW remains fairly consistent in the last week with several Walleyes and Saugers in the 12.5-16 inch range being brought up the holes mixed in with a few larger sized perch,pout and tullibees in the 30-33 feet of water range. Meanwhile,in the 16-20 feet of water range the bite remains fairly steady with both smaller and keeper sized walleye and saugers being caught. The bite in both depths seems to not really pick up until around 10 am most days and seems to almost slow down around 4 pm. Live fat heads have been the bait of choice using a plain red hook or a glow in the dark pink or gold gem-n-eye on a dead stick,jigging a minnow has been effective as well using clam jigs or a demon jigging spoon or charmer with glow in the dark pink,green or hammer gold being the colors of choice. Heading into the weekend with the warmer weather continuing to move in we remind you to please,check with a resort,outfitter or bait shop before venturing out on the big lake as the ice conditions may change daily. We hope to see everyone on beautiful Lake of the Woods very soon!

      Wondering if anyone has been out on Christmas yet this year. Thinking about going this weekend and live a ways away. I know it is one of the later lakes to freeze up. Thanks in advance.

      It sounds like there definitely can be a worthwhile night bite.  The type of structure seems to dictate how good it can be. "Smaller" humps, or structure by itself seems to produce better then the breaklines along the numerous flats.  It seems "smaller" structure topping out 10 to 15 feet surrounded be deeper water is best.   Good luck, and report back.

      nephew was fishing a bobber and had another hole about 4 feet away. dropped the vex in and saw a mark and said, I'll get that crappie. Wham!  thought it was a northern. wrapped into his bobber line and had a great fight.  totally surprised when the perch popped up the hole. lol

      Hey, I expressed what I have heard from the locals.   We have been summer folks for quite a while so get some access to the feelings of the locals, like our next door neighbors.      The Landing seems to have made a deliberate business decision to not target local folks but rather upscale tourists.   That is their privilege.    I choose not to patronize them.     As a guy I used to know at IBM said  "that's not the target market".  I am not the Landing's target market.      See you at the Crescent.   (or South Switch.)   (or the VFW in cook for burger night)    Lots of places to go if I want upscale.  Whistling Bird in Gilbert, several places in Ely, etc.
