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

      Del, We only got about 1/2 inch of snow but more snow and rain is predicted for Sunday and maybe Monday. Only 22 degrees for a high here yesterday! 39 degrees now and supposed to get to 50 degrees today. Crazy spring! Probably still frost in the ground in most areas. Cliff

      Hello Everyone, May is just a few days away and I'd love to see how the water is warming this Spring through Summer... Can we start a thread with daily water temps? Date: East side or West side: Location: Temp:   I'll be there June 10th! Thanks, ~Tripp in ATL

      Not a fishing report, but a question....   Is the frost out of the ground yet?   Bringing some stuff up to the cabin and wondering about water lines and stuff freezing and all that.   I see the forecast is for the 50's next week..     How much snow did you all get?

        I keep and eat fish also.  I was just reacting with a snide remark to a tone of "I want some fish to eat, got any spots" that perhaps was unintended .   If so, I apologize.    Many of the streams in SE Minnesota are populated primarily with native brown trout, and the DNR information is reasonably reliable.  There was a major kill in summer 2015 on the very popular south branch Whitewater river and I don't know how the recovery is coming along.    Cause still unknown.      Some recent info....(not about kill)   http://www.postbulletin.com/sports/outdoors/giving-nature-and-anglers-a-hand/article_dfe73b76-5cd9-520c-834f-7d4101a40b2e.html   http://www.postbulletin.com/sports/outdoors/john-weiss-trout-cooperate-for-a-fantastic-opener/article_2b106b9b-595f-5bee-8c3b-ceb761179da1.html   The DNR stocking activity is accessible from Lakefinder.   Here is the info for rainbow trout for 2016, the latest year available.  It will give you an idea of the activities.     http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/lakefind/showstocking.html?year=2016&county=&species=RBT
