Unexplained Mystery

11 posts in this topic

As I was going through my tackle bag getting it organized for the play offs, (post turnover) my plan was to spend a few minutes weeding out the summer stuff like, crawler harnesses, slip bobber rigs, etc. When I noticed that my bag is'nt as well oraganized as it was in early may.

The only possible explanation is that someone is breaking into my bag and messing it up. Has anyone else noticed this?

I actually had a good year this summer. My son never left the tackle box open in the rain once this summer. He has done this every year as long as I can remember. He is fifteen now and starting to realize things cost money.

I to have noticed this, My plastic box was full of gulps and now I find empty plastic containers, And I do find the gulps in the far corners of my boat, I think that they have been crawling out and trying to escape. But I have notice that I started off with one can of bug repellent and now have four. Somehow three umbrals have made it into the rod storage area and I find that my live well has a very fishy smell to it. I'm sure it was not like that in the spring smirk.gif

I think I have Gremlins from all over the state leaving odds and ends of tackle all over my boxes and boat. Dang Crappie Gremlin left 1/16th oz. jigs in my spoons and the eye gremlins left cranks in my looper boxes.

Oh well Ill fix them guys up real good come the pre freeze up period.

I've had those gremlins too. They live in the lake, I know that for sure as sometimes they take stuff from me while I'm using it. Greedy little..... wink.gif

They take stuff out of my tackle box and hide it in my son's tackle box.

I wish I had gremlins in my tackle box.

The last 8 weekends have been full of other "things" (honey-do's I think is what they are called), and the next 6 look about the same. Today was an open day and I just winterized the boat. I was very disappointed that my tackle bag was organized and things were in their right places in the boat. That's down right depressing

Your bag has old man disease.

Many, many years ago, my neighbor in a duplex was a very old retired lady. I worked second shift at the time and occasionally would go home for dinner break. One night, I got there and several police cars were parked around the place. Seems the old gal called the cops to report that someone had come in and was moving things around in her fridge.

      Here's the proof of the 28" I told you about today cliff. Unfortunately this picture doesn't make this fish out to be nearly as impressive as she was in person. I'm gonna need to work on my selfie skills.

      Interesting headline in the Virginia newspaper this morning. The Landing is being sued by past employees for not paying minimum wage, not paying overtime, and keeping up to 50% of the employees tips that were received via credit card.

      Drove to Ely yesterday and there were some pockets of great color. I would definitely think next weekend would be worth the trip.

      I would say that we are about 1/4 into fall colors in this area.

    • How are things progressing friends as far as Fall colors? Thinking of coming up the week

      Thanks

      We've done OK out there this year. Nothing special, but better for us than last year. 

      Last time out, we found piles of fish in 60-70 feet. Caught a few, couldn't release them, and stopped fishing them.  Got a couple jig rapping shallower, got a few trolling, and got a few on spinners.  No one pattern got skunked, but nothing stood out, either.

      Sorry for the late response....I suspect not many folks are building skid houses these days. :)

      Our houses have steel skids.  One had wood, but we changed them out.
