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

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.

        Yes sir! 8ft-9ft rods seem to work the best IMO.

      4/23/17     Crappies still biting in west Metro area lakes. Water temp in the mid 50's now, and the fish are moving a little shallower. We caught tons of 8 to 11 inch crappies in about ten feet of water, with some weeds on the bottom. Fished a jig tipped with a Powerbait minnow about four feet below a slip-float for great success. Some sunfish starting to show up in the same areas. Water temp probably won't rise much this week with the forecast of cooler temps and quite a bit of rain, but as the water does warm fish should continue to move shallower and get more aggressive. Check out my You Tube channel for some short video clips and a full length show about springtime crappie fishing. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.
