The economy is reeking havoc on everyone. Something like this sounds like youngsters. Just don't leave anything to chance be it in your vehicle or your icehouse. I would not even lock the door to your house.

i would imagine it will only get worse as there will probably be less police with the bad economy and more and more thieves. plus people that want to catch numbers of fish will try to get away from the crowds and make themselves a bigger theft target.

It sucks, sorry to hear you lost anything. Some are real idiots and have no respect for others.

If i ever catch anyone breaking into a shack or stealing someones stuff, it'd be real hard not to come up behind them and knock them out cold and bury them in the snow. that stuff [PoorWordUsage] me off.

Incidents like this, and predictions of more, should make us all think a bit more about community security. In my mind, that means watching out for your neighbor and even the stranger's truck. More than once when I've pulled up to a boat landing and found someone sketchy hanging around, I've sat there looking at them. They leave pretty quick.

Look out for one another, even if you don't know anyone.

This is a good idea seems like when you look a thief in the eye they get scared and run away.

Another thing you can do if you see someone looking suspect is pull out your phone and look at em and act like your making a call. I've done it before and it has worked. Its sad that people steal things.

I'm sorry that you were a victim. Like the others have said watch out for others peoples stuff just like you hope others watch out for yours.

Best way I've found to keep my ramps safe is to drive onto them with my truck so they're under my front or back wheels, I don't leave any opportunities...

but i dont think the grouping "kids" is always fair...im what you would consider a "kid" (im 17) and i would never dream of doing that stuff. i have values that i live up to. there always has to be some bad apples spoiling it for everyone else though, and it probably is a group of teenagers with nothing better to do than steal stuff and pawn it off.

      Del, No I did not troll the spinners and Raps at the same time. I kept switching rigs just to see what would work. I used a 1-1/2 oz. bell sinker on the 3-way rigs and a 2 oz. bottom bouncer with the spinners. Cliff

      Got 8 nice keeps today in 26 to 36 feet of water in Big Bay from 8:30- almost noon , plus one throw back dink . Six keeps on jig n tiny shiner , and two keeps on jig and small leeches. 1/8 oz jigs . The small shiners were trapped by us .. I pretty much fish a jig all summer long . Although I do realize other methods do have there times out there, I just like jigs , and usually always manage fish on them with either a leech , crawler piece , or a minnow ..

      Mother Nature sure has had it in for you the past week, she's making you hone your fish catching skills for sure. Good luck the remainder of your stay Jeff.

      You didn't troll them at the same time, right?   How much weight were you using?

      The rusties hadn't gotten to wakemup or Norwegian bays yet, but they are through oak narrows and on the march, from what the DNR said last summer.   I've got my trap waiting. I haven't seen anyone have much success fishing walleye on merry go round for years (and that includes me).   It is like the reef bite pretty much vanished some years back.    But who knows, it could come back if we get a couple good year classes of smaller fish.    The area around the little island (two little islands) where the osprey nest was, to the east of goodwill island, used to be good also but hasn't done much last few years.   Maybe this is the year...

      It may or may not. Everything i have read is the initial surge from starting it up is close to 2600 watts. And after that it runs at 1600.

      I never have.  Waded in when the kids were swimming.  Nice sunfish and I hear a good bass lake.  A person could portage a boat in there if it weren't too heavy.  I've never stayed there but can see people down at the beach when I fish there.
    • Gone Out Fishin
      On Island lake, I typically had luck fishing smallies near Rice Lake Road. Then the chain of islands east of the bridge has a good reef studded with boulders, moderate side rocks, and timber. Depending on the wind those islands can be good for bass or walleye. Use to use creature baits and crawdads to fish thoroughly.   Gone Out Fishin

      It’s not totally remote but I found an app for my phone called “all stays” and it has filter settings and you can find small camp sites where your not surrounded by 30’ rigs. So you don’t feel like your camping on a sidewalk in Chicago.  I found the county park ones are nice without driving 4+ hours away.

      Thanks Borch - Star Island looks really interesting and Cass is a lake I've always meant to get to, but never have. Have you ever fished Windigo?  I'm assuming the only way to do it would be to fish from shore or carry in a canoe or kayak.  Sure would be interesting to fish on a lake within a lake.
