I know this probably isn't the place for this, but your the people that might run across this stuff.

In a rash of garage break-ins in Benton County this weekend, many

of us lost fishing tackle, Honda generators, Mathews & Hoyt bows,

Lowrance X-25c, camo clothes, trail camera, ice & summer rods,

tools, saws,etc...

Take it from first hand experience, it sucks. If anyone hears of

a bunch of "hot" stuff..Call Benton County Sheriff

I hate to jump to conclusions but it almost seems like this is the new thing....not that stealing is a new thing. But taking these sorts of things. Down here in SW MN we have had quite a few thefts very similair sounding to this. Like I said, I dont want to jump to conclusions but are the young kids doing this? Is it their new way to make money to pay for something they really want. It just seems like the merchandise that is being stolen around here are items they could pawn off with no questions asked.

Probably sounds wierd but we never had to worry about locking our garage and before we had kids, our house went several nights without being locked. Now everything gets locked up tight. Too bad cause I cant help but think they are young adults and it really makes a person stereotype some of them...probably unfairly and unjust but its the unfortunate truth.

HoleHopper,

You are exactly right....rage, etc. If I ever see anything

happening in or by my garage again, I'll do what I need to do

and ask questions later...I thought I was a nice guy, until now.

Everyone....mark your stuff, take pictures, alarm your garages, etc. You just can't imagine what it's like.

Also, who buys this stuff? and if you run across anyone selling

sports gear, tools etc, call someone.

Closer to home, I had my portable Eskimo fish house ripped off right out in front of Izatys last weekend. I have left it out numerous times with no incident, but somebody decided they needed a free fish house. At least I didn't have anything of value in the fish house when stolen. There were a rash of fish house breakins and thefts last winter in mille lacs if I recall postings....

I have no dought that you are a nice guy. Just becouse we all need to stand up for ourselves and what belongs to us does not meen that we are not nice. Nice does not involve letting someone steal from us. That is totally different.

spankster,Does your Eskimo have any identifying features? I fish the south end a lot.

sorry to hear about that. Check Craigs list and Ebay (seriously)! You'd be surprised what pops up on there.

I agree with bigbartguy. Check craigslist for sure. I had a bday party a couple weeks ago and a ps3 was stolen and the next day it was on craigslist.

      Sounds like the record of May 23 is looking safe for another year... 
    • BRULEDRIFTER
      Ice is going fast!  The sun is high and powerful, we're flirting with 70 degrees and the forecast looks promising. I'm feeling pretty confident there will be a lot more open water then most are expecting.  
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      There will certainly be some areas of open water to fish by the opener! Pike Bay ice is deteriorating fairly fast now. Other small shallow bays are probably not far behind. Cliff

      Almost time but maybe not quite... Although I did get the yak out of the backyard today, on to the trailer and up front to spend some time prepping it for time on the water soon.  Indeed it was fun getting out with you and the gang a few times this winter and looking forward to the next outings whenever they may be. WIll share what worked for me and look forward to reading some more info from others. Panfish is what I love going after and I had great fishing with gold jigs almost all winter. Did use a few other colors that worked also but that gold was hard to not use. Tear drop style tungsten in and 4 mm from Widowmaker Lures. Tried some from sportsmens direct also the last couple outings and liked them also. For plastics, the wishbone was good and also impulse mayflies and slug bugs. Tried and bought too many different things to try... LOL. Fished with shrimp for the first time ever this winter and that was a challenge and fun to try something different.  Started out with my good old ultralight gander mountain rods with the frabil titanium spring bobber and then bought a couple of the TUCR Inferno with the orange tip. I really like them for the 4mm and prefer the old ganders with a 3mm. Won a custom 32 inch power noodle from Kichler Custom Rods in Elk River at an event in Wisconsin and used it a few times yesterday. Very nice and looking forward to playing with it more. CGI inline reels still doing their job fine and I did grab one of the new Descent inlines and it worked sweet also. Nice that it now has a pop off spool instead of the gold screw off knob. 10 1/4 was my biggest gill and 14 for the crappie. Even went after catfish 3 times. Saw my first catfish tornado on the vex and iced a lot of fish after being taught how to use a bobber right for those super light biters. thx RickG   My highlight of the winter was getting a PB northern on a tip up up on Mille Lacs with stick in the mud. Fun City! My good old FL 18 is still working dandy and although I am tempted to upgrade, not sure if I will. Nills 6 inch saved my back from the hassles of the gas and when I put the Milwaukee on it life got even better. All in all a fantastic winter fishing with great guys and learning how to be a better fisherman.   Fish On!
