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

      We were up north of DL 15 miles this weekend and a ton of water on the ice but it's from melting snow.  All the holes we drilled the ice was still 1-2" above water level.  It was pretty hard getting around especially at accesses due to the snow melting.  Was very soft but I was able to get around with my Rav 4, barely made it up the accesses huge hill because traction control turned off but made it though!  We had 18-19" of ice 12-14" of it was clear ice.

      1/23/17    Night crappie bite is on. Hit Waconia Saturday evening. Got a good sunfish bite half hour before sunset until dark. Crappies bit well from six to eight pm. Larger Tungsten Tubby in glow tipped with a wax worm and a small VMC spoon in glow pink fire UV tipped with a waxie were the best baits. Sunfish were near the bottom over a deep basin area adjacent to a shallower weedy area, and crappies moved through spread out over the bottom eight feet or so of the water column. Sunfish still biting during the day on Prior, but they are moving around a lot so you need to hole hop for a consistent bite. Numbers and size. Tiny Tungsten Tubby or Gill Pill with one or two red Eurolarvae were working well. An inline reel is a big help as it reduces line twist and keeps you jig from spinning and spooking finicky sunfish. Still sixteen to eighteen inches of ice on Waconia, and fifteen to sixteen on Prior. Water and slush on top, but more seasonal temps this week should firm things up. Good luck, be safe, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Sure wish that it would freeze up before the snow in the forecast comes

      I did get out on the ice, but unfortunately it was the ice on my driveway.  Spent a lot of time spreading salt and sand!  No time for fishing this weekend.

      Speaking of towers, does anyone know what the tower is for on 24 north of the VDL?
