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.

      Just curious about these two landings...Heading out for pike next weekend. Any "sketchy" spots or ice ridges I need to worry about this year? I normally go out of the warroad landing and head east down the shore a little ways. Thanks

      No compression and if it is leaking fuel out of the exhaust, then it is a valve problem, fix-able, but at what cost when compared to a new one or find a used unit.

      Hello everyone last year at he end of ice season I got a clam auger plate. The one you install in place of drill chuck. I didn't have time to use it last season. This past Christmas I got a Milwaukee fuel drill and it doesn't fit. The threads for the chuck are bigger then the adapter clam includes. Has anyone dealt with this issue?

      With ice as thick as 24-30 inches and long range forecast for freezing temps, ice fishing season through March in good shape. Roads have smoothed out from the warmer weather and now freezing again.  Some snow still remains on the lake. A very active bite continues with many good sized walleyes and saugers.  Working every fish with electronics is helpful.  Some walleyes are suspended. The anglers working a jigging line with jigging spoon tipped with minnow head or tail and a dead stick with a plain hook or small ice jig and minnow are doing good.  Key depth  29-33 ft in the morning/ early afternoon and 17-24 before nightfall.  Best colors glow pink/red or chartreuse.    The Rainy River morning and evening bite has been spotty at times. Know the river or use a resort or guide for safety. The river is open from Birchdale to the east. Only some shore ice remains and some reports say anglers have already started pushing boats over the ice.   The snowmobile trail is staked from Wheeler's Point to Baudette on the river.  Do not deviate from trail unless you are familiar with ice conditions.   Up at the NW Angle, ice conditions are still favorable with 20-24 inches of solid ice in non-current areas. Snow cover is minimal on snowmobile trails but are still being groomed and in good condition. On the Minnesota side,  walleyes are being caught  on shallower rock points between 20-24 feet as well as deeper mud between 28-30 feet. A good number of saugers and perch are also being produced. Black and gold have been performing very well using a variety of baits.  In Ontario the crappie bite has been hot and cold as of last week. Walleyes are are most active on rock humps with successful colors being, blue and white, pink and gold. Remember to move on to another species after you have your limit of crappies as these fish have a high mortality rate over 25' of water. Work through resorts and stay on ice road. Fish houses can stay on ice through March, walleyes/saugers through April 14th.  Pike and crappies open all year for LOW MN.
