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

      For all you pan fish lovers, check out this beautiful pumpkin seed I found guarding the bed while I was out bass fishing. Couldn't help but get some video of this beaut! Enjoy!

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff

      Just wondering if any one will give me pointers on this lake??  Not specific spots.  Going to be at Pocahontas Resort July 1 - July 8th.  I am bass guy for most part but have kids (6 & 4) that love to fish for panfish and want them to keep entertained.  Any tips or information would be greatly appreciated!!!  Thanks!

      Hello FM family!!  I HAVE A 2000 18.5' Fisher DXV boat and am having problems of water getting into the boat.  I have filled up the bottom of the boat with water to see if something is cracked on the boat itself and have found nothing.  It seems like the only time water comes in is when I use live well pumps. I have a guy replacing all the hoses that would have water going through them to see if one is cracked.  The water that comes in is enough that I have to run the bilge pump about every half and hour.  If I forget to run bilge then I have so much water I can't get up on plane when I take off.  Once the hoses are replaced and water still gets in, what would be my next step??  Cracked livewells??? I have two of them in this boat.  Any ideas??  Thanks!
