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

      Cool nights and only a few warming hours each day have water temps coming down into the 50s this week.  This is actually pretty normal for the last week of September so there is nothing to odd here. 
       
      The catfish have slowed down over the past few days with this cool off.  They are still around to catch.  They are hanging near structure, usually on the drop off to the channel right next to it.  They are also on the softer side of the current in holes.  It seems that longer sit times are in order this week to allow the fish to come out, find and decide to eat the bait.
       

      Sucker seems to be the bait of choice right now.  Frogs just have not been getting any attention.

      From the fall Pelican Lakes Association newsletter - DNR Fisheries Update:

      You may have heard about the 454 adult cormorantsthat were removed from Gooseberrry Island this May by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Wildlife Services Unit under a permit from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.  DNR staff looked at the stomach contents of 30 birds. Eleven of those birds had stomach contents including: 38 perch (mostly 4- inchers), 7 spot-tail shiners, 7 bluegills, 6 crappies, 1 rock bass, 1 pike, and zero walleyes.

      Thanks for the Update.  Hopefully they shoot 400 more next spring! :):)

      They were really slow today. I fished hard all day and didn't manage much. Went over tons of fish and they weren't active at all. Should get better as the weekend gets closer...I hope

    • Hello Friends:

      Looking for some help as I've been up here since yesterday morning and only two 22" walleyes. I've fished fairly hard (5 or 6 hours) and tried all of my normal spots in Frazer/Smarts/Narrows area using all presentations with minnows and crawlers. Would love to have a walleye dinner (couple of 15's) for my black lab and I tomorrow night and any suggestions would be welcomed.

      I'm not looking for spots, but general depth and bait.

      Thanks guys

      Andy

      It is great.  I don't know if they are still doing grumpy gary chicken this time of year but it is good.  They have specials on various nights, at least in summer.

      Dennis Anderson, Outdoor writer for the Minneapolis Tribune had a nice write up on the duck opener at Pelican. In addition there were some locals quoted on duck hunting there. Sounds like the ducks are back, and they have the water levels well under control.

    • Thanks Don! its a good time of year to be on the water!! :)
