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...

      Well I ended up picking up the Cabelas zone specialist on sale for $160 plus I had a coupon in the mail for 20 off A $150 purchase
      Picked up a new chair and a power owl call ( Im pretty sure I can call better with no call than that thing) I had a 200 gift card so I walked out of there with 17.00 credit
      Not bad I say I really liked the blind I sat in them all that were set up with my chair and I grabbed a bow from the archery department. I know people will probably disagree but dare I say from what I seen I like it better than the bullpen even.
      It seems to me to be made of a good material too and I can see it lasting awhile as I will take care of it and I am not going to leave it out for days on end. We will see how it is to hunt out of soon.

      I love my 6 inch K Drill however the blades seem to dull faster to me once I figured it out. Happy as a clam. I do regret selling my power auger. I bought a 8 Eskimo power auger for when I go to Mille lacs. the K drill will work just fine but I liked having the 8 inch hole for eyes up there harder to turn there head in a six inch hole. I know you can drill 2 holes together but for me it just worked. Short story Rick G is right on I love my K drill. Would recommend to any one and it's so much lighter when runnin and gunnin.

      tipupsonly it was very hard to just sit and not fish. Yeah it was very very warm up there. I'll walk out if I have to!!!! It'll be my 3rd weekend up in a row.  Love this time of year.

        Just wanted to share info on what I know about how those USGS stream gages work.  The stream gaging station will not reflect accurate readings of stage and discharge while ice cover is present.  If you are looking at USGS stream gages you will see a little note in the data table that says "Ice Cover" if this is the case.  They won't be useful until the ice is gone and "Ice Cover" is not showing up next to the readings.  They work on water pressure to estimate the height of water above the gage.  More water flowing under the ice creates more water pressure, so makes the estimated gage height and corresponding estimated discharge go up.  The USGS gage at Manitou should be accurate (no ice cover).  The higher flow will draw the fish in better than low flow.  Another good one to check is the LWCB gages for Rainy Lake and the tailrace below the dam(s).  That will help determine if it's the Forks affecting water levels or just more water coming out of Rainy, which is nice and clear.  Hopefully it won't get muddy!  Maybe see you out there DucksnBucks.  T-Rock-1.

      I saw teal for the first time this morning.  I've had 8 drake mergs hanging around the house for at least a week.  Ringnecks have taken their place for about the past week.  The goldeneyes came and went pretty quick.   I heard snows last night.  Other guys reported the same this morning.  One person reported a flock of Ross' geese last night.  Too bad they don't show a hint of setting down around these parts.   Ive heard woodies but can't say I've actually seen one.  And my wood duck house appears to still be empty.  There was a No Vacancy sign on it by this time last year.   In all, I'm seeing the usual suspects but I have to say the numbers are less than last year.  I hope that's just due to there being more open water all around than last year.
