Lost and Found

13 posts in this topic

I don't know if there is an actuall lost and found or not but this morning someone broke into my truck and stole my gps and a few other things right from my driveway. Please keep an eye out for a Lowrance I Finder Pro Gps with my name and phone number engraved across the whole back. If found there is a reward, had it for two years and it is an important part of my arsenal for the outdoors. Thanks - Jason

Jason,

You have my sympathy, I know how you feel, I am still mourning the loss of my tackle box and fishing poles from 6 years ago. I had a GPS marked with a ton of fishing spots and deer stands that were hard to find in the dark. My incident happened in Circle Pines, My son and I were at a friends house that had the boat, I went into his house, was about to sit down and have a cup of coffee, I sent my then 4 yr old son out to the truck to get the tackle box and the fishing poles, we were there maybe 5 minutes at this time. This was at 4:30 in the morning, My little guy comes running into back into the house, DADDY, DADDY, the fishing poles and your tackle box is gone (He had just graduated to a adult size Gander Mt. spinning reel combo)The look on his face could break the strongest of men. I still get tears picturing his face. My friend lived in a good part of town..well we thought. I had in my tackle box a 6 month old Magellan handheld GPS I forget which model, Just purchased several crank baits, mostly for Bass fishing, and, what I miss the most is the 35mm camera I got for Christmas from my wife and kids, my daughter does not like fishing, so, I only had pictures of my son,(camera stayed in the tackle box). and the enormous fish he had caught, okay, what he thought we enormous fish. This "a hole" could have gave me back the camera and kept everything else. I have 6 months of fishing with my son, all that are left is memories, the bad thing is he does not remember a lot about the fishing. I have been trying to make up for it and take him out even more.

It could have been a lot worse, what if my son would have been closer and this guy could have taken him. It really pisses me off that people steal. for whatever reason, drugs, nothing else to do...just for fun? People work hard for what they have.

Sorry to hijack your post, it brought back memories, just like it happened yesterday.

Good luck in finding your property.

I don't know what to say, my heart goes out to you and your boy... Ihave an 8 yr old daughter who is my best fishin buddy, winter and summer. She was crushed more than I was over the gps. She told me it was because what it meant to me. The best thing she said was " Now we'll have to go fishin twice as much to fill up the new gps with our old spots. That was great!! On the other side of this, I think more parents should be like you, kinghunter and myself and get those kids out and get them into something constructive like the fishing and hunting. It does teach many values.

Thank you and I Totally agree, get them out there and experience the thrill and ethics behind "why" we hunt. Not only for the kill, but, the respect one has for nature and all she has to offer, not only for the dinner table, the mind as well. My daughter did not pick up on the fishing she would rather try and catch a cow. grin.gif She loves those steaks.

My son cannot wait to take firearm safety, and, be able to go deer hunting. I tell him he only has three years to go. I get a strong hint that he wants to bird hunt too. I have never done that, I think it would be fun.

Stealing fishing tackle and equipment has to be the lowest form of theft, when they are caught nothing much is done to the theives. A note to Stmichael, my 3 boys are all grown men, we fished and hunted together from the time they could hold a gun or a fish pole. Those times were the best time of my life, spend all the time you can manage hunting or fishing with your sons and daughters, you will never regrete it. wink.gifwink.gifwink.gif

EFGH-GREAT POST

EFGH, I hear you, and feel the same way, I was going to take him out with me rifle hunting, but, I think I am going to wait until after and just take him out and sit in a stand, or get one of those blinds to sit in That way it won't matter if he is restless. I may pick up my bow license, just in case. wink.gif (this will be his first time sitting "watching for deer". Just like the first few times out fishing, if you make him wait out there too long he will get bored with it. I do not want that to happen.

He is into shooting bow, so, I think that this would be a great experience for him.

I was thinking about bringing some puzzle books along so if he gets bored he can keep his mind occupied. I do not think that is going to happen, the problem may be trying to get him to whisper when he talks. for some reason he thinks I am across the county when he starts talking.

      I like drifting with them and snap jigging them with a controlled fall...Almost every time you'll feel that tick just as it's hitting bottom... Last time I was on mille lacs that's all I could get them to go on. As far as colors I'd just match the forage Tullies in the lake use blue,purples,silvers....Perch use perch colors.. I think the jiggin rap is my new favorite way to fish, but it gets scary with them little hooks when you got a big eye on lol.

      Fished Big Sandy from 8-2 today and got 10 eyes (no keepers) keeper crappie and perch.... Marked tons of fish, but it was tough to get them to go, Lindy rig with a half crawler was the best by far. I tried leeches,jigging rap, jig n plastic. Points and reefs were the spots, later in the day a lot of fish were off the edges of the reefs... Just one day this year I'd like a happy medium weather wise, either I'm in 4ft rollers or 90 degrees with zero wind haha.

      According to Al Linder you can do it all with them...on his video that I watched a while back he was in deeper water throwing into 15 feet and working it back to the boat.  I have not tried it yet but will have to sometime this year.  Sand or gravel bottom would be the best.

      Just started playing with these this week as a friend has been have goos luck all summer with them on the Cass lake chain. I have not any success yet but not real sure on the best way to use them with my set this week.  My friend searches pods of fish out with electronics then spot locks and vertical jigs. I have no electronics or spot lock so I have been control drifting and jigging.   My questions...   Is there a depth they work better in, shallow vs. deeper?   Better vertically jigged vs trolled vs casted and jigged?   prime colors? of course my be lake dependent.   typically, aggressive jigging vs subtle jigging?   Thanks for tips

      Yes, insured. I will ask the adjuster, thanks.
    • Captain Acorn
      Thanks cliff and lb I have actually had better luck with the puppet minnows from northland but I have mainly jigged them vertically definently is a fun way to fish

      I've been trolling at about .5mph while using a jigging rap. This way one guy can still drag a lindy. I keep the front hook intact but my boat has contributed about half a dozen to the lake so far this summer. Im still working on getting the hang of it. If I know I'm in a rough area I will attempt to keep the jig from hitting bottom which still seems to be effective. I did pick up a couple off brands that don't have a front hook that I want to try. This is just what I have been toying around with, I'm definitely not an expert at it.

      Hi Everyone, a couple of questions, I know there is free public boat ramp in Stillwater just above the lift bridge. Is there another public boat ramp further down river? I thought I read somewhere that Beanies is or was becoming a free public boat launch. Is that the case? Also, I am thinking of heading there on Monday to try my luck. Any tactics/depths/areas that have been producing for anyone?

      I would call the catfishing this week seasonal.  It is a pretty normal bite for a period of lower water and heat.  The catfish are in post spawn and spread out in their summer haunts.  The more aggressive fish are in the deeper water in the middle of the river.  As usual stay on the move and keep the bait fresh. Bait does not seem to matter still but people with frogs are saying they are getting their better hits with them.

Brook trout designs are not eligible this year. Artists are prohibited from using any photographic product as part of their finished entries. Winning artists usually issue limited edition prints of the artwork and retain proceeds. Judging will take place Thursday, Aug. 3, at DNR headquarters, 500 Lafayette Road, St. Paul.
