Last Thursday my co-worker who lives right next door to my parents had an attempted break-in on her house. Whomever did it, got away leaving little evidence available to police. They are even taking the time two wipe their fingerprints from the scene. This is the 3rd attempt in the past 2 weeks in Gaylord. The previous 2 were "successful", but they broke glass at her place, so they quickly wiped the area clean and took off. Thus far they have targeted "nicer" homes with elderly or single people living in the homes. And it appears they make their attempts during the daytime when people are off to work.

There were subtle signs of their presence prior to their attempt. Pebbles from a planter next to her house were on the concrete patio 2 consecutive days, but she didn't think anything of it....just swept them away. She also had a plant alongside her house that was trampled a little bit, but again, she didn't think much of it.

There was also a break-in or two over in Winthrop earlier this year (just 7 miles west of Gaylord). If it's the same guys, they are hitting area towns a few times and moving on. Please be aware and conscious of anything or anyone that appears out of place. I know this posting is a shot in the dark and will likely not happen to any of you, but that's what my neighbor thought too. Since Thursday, she hasn't hardly had a wink of sleep at night (she's about 62 and widowed). My parents are on alert too. And being they only live 1.5 blocks from me, I'm on the alert a bit too with proper "defense" measures in place.

Supposedly, there is a grey suv involved in some of these cases.

Thank you.

Any chance they had a door to door salesmen by their house recently to this? I had one outside my house sunday afternoon, my wife was outside and he came up to her, then a police officer pulled up, she came in to the house, and the police officer took him away. Strange, I wanted to call to find out what he was hauled away for, but didnt. Maybe I should, but I dont know if they would tell me anything.

There was a young guy with a white car trying to sell me some stuff a couple weeks ago and told him I didnt want anything and he left. Did that guy have a white car too?

He was on foot, or atleast as I could tell, I didnt see any car near our block.

Those guys come by on an annual basis, and yes they've been around recently (selling cleaning supplies). I don't believe they are the culprits though.

      Sounds like a blast!  My time has shifted to turkey hynting prep.  So it looks like I'm done despite good ice conditions.  But I'm a bit jealous of you all.

      Went up to Knife lake today to see if i could find some slab crappies. After drilling countless holes and only 1 crappie to show for it was thinking about packing it in. Then i notice a mark 1ft under the ice, bam a nice 12in slab. fished 2:45-8pm, bite was good 6:30-8.  Caught a good amount of crappies, key was to be 6-8ft of water and most fish were 1-4ft down. All crappies were released, with how hard this lake gets its nice to see there's still slabs in there and wish the DNR would put a 5 crappie limit on the lake, even down to 3 would be great.

      Check out weezie outdoors. They guide bear, and all kind of things. I know they hunt Winnie for ducks. They also supply a dog if needed. They also do fish guiding. They have a website also.

      Anyone know how the lakes are doing in the Madison Lake area? Still fishable? Ice pulling away from shore yet?

      The big storm last weekend blew a lot of ice into shore around the park point area...the south pier was closed again and there is ice piled up around the pier...not good for the coho fishing off the pier and not good for the smelting off the point. At least the weather is going to be in the 50's for awhile it looks like.
