Missing part of my life

7 posts in this topic

Yesterday while in route from a bamboozler at the Vermillion Club to fortune bay somehow we lost two rod and reels... we had them in the locked vehcile at vc so they were not stolen. I have never seen a rod and reel fly out of a boat before in my years but it happened... Mine was a Shimano Stradic reel (white 2500) with a cabela's xml 6 foot titanium, medium light i believe.. I had a pink and white northland jig on (I am desperate) and the other missing one was my buddies guide series rod and not sure what kind of reel but it had cajun red line on it. If anyone at all has any information that someone picked it up please message me or call 2189941375 (we drove back and forth 3 times on the shoulder, and we walked the entire ditch from vc to fortune bay so someone grabbed it)

I wondered what the heck 2 guys would be doing walking along 77 looking so intently. Especially with the weather as it was. Good luck and hopefully the finder is a FM'er and a true sportsman and will return his new found treasures.

I was the guy in the camo walking in the ditch... the other two guys were also looking but not a very good day for us and still not. Hopefully someone will give it up i am assuming they were sitting right on the highway.... i still have one left to use so i can sort of live but i am a broke college kid so its way worse...

That really is a bummer! frown.gif

Unfortunately you will probably not see those rods again!

If you need to borrow a rod or two for the weekend call me. I have a few extras.

Mike,

Let me know when you're going to be around and stop in at Vermilion Fuel and Food. We might be able to work something out for you.

I appreciate your replies and have not gotten any word as of yet... I still have another stradic and regular xml as well as another set-up so I won't need to borrow anything Cliff but appreciate your offer very much...and I will stop by v bait and tackle when i get back i just returned to grand forks to work for a little while.. It's not that i don't have a rod to fish, but the sentimental value of the set-up that flew out... 5 out of 7 rods stayed in the boat. With as much traffic as there was it could be at someones house in Iowa by now... thanks again for your help there are a great group of people on this site...

      Last year it was Dec. 26th before they opened the road up out of Morris pt. for 4 wheelers. Thinking its looking like that again this year. Hope I can hold out. Between the ice show and this website getting very fired up.

      Yep. I'm on Schultz's Bay. Which side are you on?   Had to head in to Alex today around noon so I took a little side trip to Manthey's Bay because that is typically the first area that has walkable ice. Stood at the 145th Ave access. To the right was all open water, straight out was ice for maybe 30 feet and then open water and that extended to the left into Manthey's Bay for a ways. The rest of the Bay looked frozen over from what I could see from there. Nothing anywhere on the lake looks like it would be walkable yet. Lots of ice on the lake and still making more. The winds have been keeping small pockets of water open scattered through out the ice that has formed so the ice thickness is going to be very inconsistent for a while. The winds have started to die down so with calmer winds I would think the lake might lock up in the next day or two. Just so the snow stays away for Saturday.

      Picked up my first custom rod, a TUCR power noodle, the new black Betty free fall and plenty of tungstens!

      This afternoon I checked Norris lake and it is locked up except for a few small holes in the middle.  Twin lakes on the other hand is wide open. Pic is of Twin lake.
