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

      Got one over 40in on a small local lake like 3-4 yrs back , 2lb line...fishing panfish. Got a pic up in the St cloud reports somewhere. But biggest was just shy of 43 on Rainey River about 20 yrs ago

      If you make up it up this way at all I'll have the peg on a good bite somewhere. Sometimes traveling a little farther north makes ice fishing more enjoyable. Keep on posting, we have tons of well educated anglers that roam these forums!

      I'm slacking bud, I haven't done any of that yet lol. The excitement is here though, been talking to some co-workers lately about all things ice fishing. Soon enough guys!!

      My troubles are that even with the hyfax on the slides the munchkin take a little bit of a kick to get started.    My sled does not have studs and has carbides on the skis. So when I hook up to the house with the tow bar the track spins without breaking the house loose. It's like hooking it to a truck. Too much power on the sled side and no ability to transfer it to forward motion.    The 4-wheeler with chains has zero problems. Pulls it like it's not even there.

      I'd like to see this expanded to help revive our pike size and population.
