LOST TACKLE BOXES

10 posts in this topic

I am posting for friend that was fishing down at the Winona L&D at Breezypoint Habor, he left 2 tackle cases there on the ground on sunday afternoon.

I can describe them to anyone if found and can even describe the cases and most of the jigs in them, for I am the one who tied them .

A small but gracious reward will be offered to the finder !!

Thanks Jeff

as a kid i actually dreamed of finding a tackle box while out fishing. after having my box stolen out of my car twice(once they took the whole car), i think i'd be more inclined to check around first.

i like to see this board doing some good for fellow anglers.

did they have an address on them, or was it found by someone in the FM family? i think i'll have to make up some lables for my boxes(just gave myself the idea).

i'm not sure if you would get the same results here in cali, but on the whole, fishermen are fishermen.

any way, great story.

I'm glad the box was recovered. Just like lookinCA, in the past (as a kid) I would have been tickled to find tackle box full of goodies. Finders Keepers right…? We'll I know if I found one today I'd go to the furthest extent to find the rightful owner. Ones tackle box is an invaluable asset to its rightful owner. The stories of each lure, the hot colors that are no longer offered, and the list goes on and on. I’m happy to hear that an honest individual returned what wasn’t his. It takes a bigger man (or women) to do that.

One could always put one of these stickers on your tackle box.

cool!

the snakes have changed a bit from 15 years ago. they use to be a foam head that goes on like a worm weight and you could use any plastic worm behind it.

i'm sure the end result is the same.

thanks ike

      That sounds encouraging. Did you notice all the dead carp on shore? I wonder what's up with that, a virus or something maybe?

      thats a good priority

      I've never trout fished in MN and was hoping to get some help as a newcomer to the state. I know there are a lot of streams but I've also read that DNR info on them is often out of date and I dont want to drive an hour or more to a desolate stream.    Most seem to either have only browns or only small brooks. I really am after some medium size, 12 to 14 inches, rainbow trout for the smoker so I definitely will release any big browns if I catch one.    I've got waders and a kayak and am willing to do what is necessary to get to good, less pressured water.    Bonus offer, I have 2 very stable fishing kayaks, you can stand up in them, and would be more than happy to let you use one if you wanted to organize a float down river in exchange for showing me a decent spot to get some rainbows. Any takers or advice?    Edit - I live in Andover and would prefer to keep the drive below an hour and a half unless it's a well worth while stretch of water.

      That's a really neat boat

      Unfortunately as close as I came to pulling the trigger I'm going to put it off until next year (might be getting my hands on a little boat later this year though). Buddy of mine has a canoe that we're going to rig up best we can and get out a few times. I'll be buying some decent waders instead and adventuring out that way into the river. 

      Thanks for the advice, it's killing me that I can't get out on the water! House downpayment takes priority though... unfortunately.
