help lost tackle on shore!

12 posts in this topic

I know there was a few of you out on the shore today. I lost my black "purse"...my looper bag with most of my shore tackle either at the knife or stewart today around 9:00. I'm pretty sure I put it on top of the car before leaving the knife and heading to the stewart. I also think if that is where I went wrong the two guys in the red car leaving behind us picked it up. It was a small soft sided black purse-sized bag with a bunch of homemade bobbers, the hottest bugs, and various tools of the trade. Glad it was today though as I wasn't planning anymore trips to the shore with the brule opening next weekend. Still a bum deal. I will offer a small cash reward for it's return but I'm pretty sure it's found a new home. Figured I'd see if anyone spotted it though. Hope the guys behind me use the site and have the heart to shoot me an e-mail.

Sorry to hear that, Matt. I almost ran into you today. I wandered my way so far from Ely looking for wildlife today I actually ended up at Agate Bay in Two Harbors, shooting birds and anglers on the breakwall. A few guys with long rods and looper bugs under bobbers, and one guy with a fly rod. I almost headed to the Stewart before leaving for Ely, but didn't. Good luck getting your tackle. I know how that can be. frown.gif

Hey way to go deathroe....

Last winter my gas auger fell out of my portable out in the middle of lake mille lacs on a SATURDAY!! I posted that evening and recieved a call the next morning at 9am from the gentlemen who picked it up shortly after i lost it. Said he'd check out FM to see if a member had lost it and wouldn't you know it.....Needless to say i bought him lunch and a few beers. This really is a great site. Congrats on your find. grin.gif

Good job Deathroe! Matt keep your "man purse" on your waste or shoulder. Maybe string it through the arms of your jacket like mommy used to do your mittens? wink.gifgrin.gif

      I know this is an Ice Fishing thread, but I can't seem to find much information on ice condition on the lake or how the snow looks out there and on the trails. I live down in the Duluth area and was thinking about coming snowmobiling up there this next weekend. Seems the whole states in a stupid heat wave. But you guys had more snow than us before, was wondering if there's still enough to snowmobile.

      LOTS of traffic on the Hole In The Day access over the weekend.  It degraded noticeably from Saturday to Sunday.   There are two paths heading out.  The one going straight ahead has a bit of a ridge at shore that longer houses/low clearance vehicles might have a little trouble with.  The one to the right is angled and doesn't have the ridge but developed a hole at shore Saturday night.   I'm hoping it doesn't get any worse but probably will before the weekend.  We were planning on being out overnight before the contest but plans seem to be changing.  Especially since it was reported that a vehicle went through by Hunters Point over the weekend.  Hunters Point is on the Southwest side of the lake but makes my wife leary of taking out truck and house back out even on the Northeast end where the contest is.   Sorry for the bad news.  I'm still crossing my fingers and will check the access again this week.

      Very nice fish! Thanks for the heads up on the ice cleats. Do you know how the access is holding up with this warm weather ?
