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...

      ago ·  Hey guys, I'm new to this site. Trying to learn more about this lake. My brother and I fished there last July 9-16-2016. We did good on all species, especially like and walleye. We had several rallies on smallmouth, but never put a solid pattern together. My brother had a 4 and 5 lber. On perch shad rap. I caught many 1-1/2 - 3 lbers on uvibe speed craws. Suspending jerkbaits caught all species well. I've been checking this site and Mr. Johnwis has some great info and video. If any of you out ther could help us get on them big smallies, we would greatly appreciate it. We're from southwest Louisiana and we'll be staying at island view lodge July 22-29 . Thanks and this is a great site

      In my eyes anywhere on the Rum is great for smallies. So far this year everytime I have been out the levels have been great even after all the rain we had just had to wait a couple days and the water was great. I put in at the Anoka fair grounds and travel up river

      (Too much mercury may affect a child’s behavior and lead to learning problems later in life.) That would explain some of the backwoods people     All jokes aside I would limit it to one serving a month for being pregnant or breast feeding for Bass, Catfish, Trout, Walleye, northern like they say   "Young children (under 15 years old) and fetuses are more sensitive to mercury. Too much mercury can cause lasting problems with understanding and learning. But studies show children benefit developmentally when moms eat fish low in mercury during pregnancy. "   Just because you are not glowing doesn't mean its necessarily healthy for a fetus it takes awhile for it to build up in a healthy adult that's just my           Methylmercury exposure in Wisconsin: A case study series” (2005)
      This articles describes exposure of 14 people who at fish two times a week or more and one person who ate no fish. "Three of the individuals reported vague subclinical symptoms such as mental confusion, sleep difficulty, balance problems, or visual disturbances, which improved after their mercury levels returned to

      I'm heading up to Blackduck for the long July 4th weekend and we are hoping on maybe getting out on Red for a day.  I've only ice fished it twice,  so I'm wondering about the best places to launch the boat.  It looks like there is only the one public launch in Waskish.  The 2 times I ice fished up there we went out of JR's Corner resort.  Would it be best to just launch from one of the resorts.  Any advice would be appreciated,  thanks in advance.

      Juan that is great area for smallies. The water looks clear for the rum it's time. It's a long way to the next landing so you might want put in in Princeton and fish to that access You can get out at highway 47 so that is not to bad. I forgot about that I was thinking you had get almost to Cambridge.
