      Fishing Report Clubs - LIMITED MEMBERSHIP - Join Today - FREE   01/24/2018

      Fishing Minnesota had added a new menu item (see above) called Fishing Report Clubs. It's a way to keep the really good fishing reports coming and being shared only with those who also provide detailed fishing reports. We will only approve new members who request to join if they have already posted a recent fishing report in the area forum, associated with the Fishing Report Club area  you want to join. We are going to limit the number of regular memberships, in the Fishing Report Clubs, to the top 20  members in each Club, to those with the best frequency and quality fishing reports provided in the club and less so in the regular fishing report forum open to all members. The higher quality fishing report reserved for the club of course. If  you want fishing reports  around your area, I would Join Now, some of the clubs are starting to fill fast. Use the Fishing Reports Club link in the Menu above (after you've posted a fishing report in the regular area forum) and request to Join.

Hey guys I was driving back from picking my truck up at RJ's yesterday and like a dork I left my keys on my tonnue cover and drove off. I got home and realized what I had done. Drove all the way back to RJ's and found nothing.

Probably came off the truck and someone picked them up.

I took 53 down to the mall and took a right at Perkins and went down over the highbridge.

If anyone finds them let me know. Long shot but worth a try.

Thanks Man. Im guessing they may have dropped going down piedmont. Hopefully a road worker found them and I can call and see if they were reported.

Doing the same thing myself. Went golfing with a buddy, went to Lake elmo Inn after for a drink and watch the wild. After the game went to leave... keys are gone. Searched the bartenders garbage, the dishwashers garbage, the linin basket, everywhere... just gone. Frustrating.

Only good news, I discovered my hidden key was gone too, I'd rather find that out, when I'm 15 minutes from home, then when I'm at the end of the gunflint trail and 60 minutes from the nearest locksmith.

I once walked a ditch for 100 yards picking up text books, a calculator, a check book, a briefcase, credit cards...

The guy left everything on top of his trunk and drove off...

I'd look by wherever your first turn was... the first time you turned right or left, it would've slid off.

I don't know about that, I had a 3/4 full can of Coke make the 22 mile trip to work in city traffic sitting on the back bumper of my truck. Good luck finding them Steve, you never know when or where they might show up, a lot of weird things happen in this world.

Ya like when my H2O slid out of the Ram holder and bounced into my splashwell just under the cables/hoses. Got home and lot I had lost it in the road someplace. Drove all over looking. No luck. Got home and looked all over the boat 2 or 3 times. Nothing. Went back later and checked again and there it was under the transom splashwell cables etc. Had been there all along but was so Pissed at myself I looked right around it.

Now I put a big rubber band around it when its in the Ram holder.

I had a pair of work gloves on my rear bumper that made it from the family cabin at Lake Vermillon all the back to my place in Duluth. Then they fell off as I pulled into a parking space. I just don't understand why some things stay and others just can't. blush.gif

With this story and knowing the keys were on the tonnue cover have you looked between the cab and box to see if the may have slide forward? Might be laying on the fuel tank or something. Just a thought.

Could try putting an almost exact key setup, in the almost exact place, and drive almost the exact route, in almost the exact same way...and lose another set in the same place...hopefully find them both... if someone is watching in the truck... or driving behind! grin.gif

This method has occasionally worked for "someone", for lost items...almost. blush.gif

: ) I found the set I mysteriously lost at the lake elmo inn.

I had been golfing, went to LEI for an appetizer and watch the wild playoff game... got done eating... no keys. Not on the bar, not in the truck, not in the bartenders garbage, not at the cashiers counter, manager didn't have em, not in the dishwashers garbage... no where.

Went golfing yesterday. Opened the bag to get my balls and tees, out pops my keys.

When I got out of the truck at the restaurant, I must have had some tees or something in my pocket, and when i stuck em in the bag, I must have inadvertantly put my keys in there too.

Feel pretty stupid now. We musta spent an hour or better trying to find those things. FOBs are expensive.

Northlander.

Just a thought on finding your keys. If you lost them before the bridge, you might check with the Adopt a Highway groups working those sections of road. Mn/(Contact Us Please) has also swept the bridge and maybe Piedmont Ave. and your keys may be where they dump the sweepings. Could be a lot of digging however. Also a question. Was there any colored bobble attached to them. Something that might attract attention to someone driving slow?

I'm sure they'll turn up Steve, but I'll entertain you with my own lost keys story. I get called out one morning for a high speed chase coming my way. Throw on jeans, tshirt, vest, handgun and cuffs in the waistband, grab the keys and jump in the squad. Just as I'm getting the stop sticks out, the chase goes by me. The pursuit ended just this side of Bena. I get back to town and SOB where's my keys? I look everywhere and nothing. About a month later, a couple other officers and I are out fishing and the one says, some guy at my wife's work just gave her a set of keys and they look like "cop keys". I couldn't believe it, but sure enough they were my keys. He found them along Hwy 2 where the pursuit had ended. It took some bending with the pliers and channel locks, but they were good as new. They'll turn up!

You and Tom should plan a day to get up here and hit Winnie or Bowstring with me towards the end of May!

      Has your tip up been in deeper water, shallower or the same? I’m hoping to get some iced this last weekend of the season. Devils Lake in ND is a good bet.
    • Mark
      Catching a lot of them in 34 feet

      Back on the Horseshoe chain I put in another 7 hours seeing zero pike yesterday.  I must be using the wrong decoys since I can draw in sunfish, crappies, bass, and catfish all day.  Finally caught a pike on a tip-up outside the house so at least I didn't get skunked again.  Looks like that will do it for spearing season unless I can figure out a North Dakota lake to try...

      Quick report from last weekend: Fished a couple midlake reefs in big bay and the walleye seemed to be non existent aside from a few dinks, although, the action was pretty decent. Jumbo perch, tullibee, and a few crappie kept me busy. From hearing other people’s late season reports along with my experience last weekend it seems like a lot of the walleye have moved to different types of structure, perhaps shallower?? I’m not sure, but had very few marks that appeared to be walleye.  
    • IceHawk
      Agree Pike they new there Stuff bought a few guns there and great prices!
    • IceHawk
      Anyone one of you guys ever use Dave Smith decoys?  They sure look realistic but wow come with a price. I like the avian X and I have a couple custom painted from a artist friend that look real good also.  Yes I  realize  a lot of people  don't use decoys. And I realize there is a time and situation for that  But I'm kind of a decoy junky lol! i rarely find my self going with out any. 
    • mrpike1973
      I agree Ice Hawk. I liked Sportsmans seemed to have more people that actually fished and knew what they were talking about for help.
    • IceHawk
      Great vid on my bucket list also. I always loved seeing those peacock fisherman throwing  those woodchoppers. Seems like a very aggressive fish I need to target someday 
    • IceHawk
      Bring a scoop of each and try a variety the fish will tell you what they are preferring. 
    • IceHawk
      Boy your lucky sure miss the one in St Cloud  they always seem to carry a great selection for everything. We are kind of limited with only Mills and Scheels . Dicks just doesn't have it for me.
