Lost Otter rod box - with rods and tackle.

Recommended Posts

widetrack

Lost between the ridge, warroad river, and 5 mile.

Came out of a friends fish house somewhere along the way.

My favorite rods with brand new reels (bought yesterday.. no kidding...) and my sutton spoons... Ouch! We covered are tracks twice, and no such luck.

Reward offered.

Figured I'd give it a shot here anyway...

Thanks for your time.

Hope you get them back. I would also check with the resorts in that area.

I hope you find your gear. I've lost things over my hunting and fishing career.I started writing my first name and cell phone number on my gear,just in case somebody honest finds it.

You may have already done it, but my nephew lost his a few years ago and we had Curt Q. announce it on his radio show and someone called in and he got it back. If you have not, I would give him a try.

HUGE kudos goes out to the guy that turned it in. Its nice to hear there are still honest people out there. I always knew the majority of sportsmen out there are pretty good guys.

It was found by one of the bridges on the Warroad river. He then brought it to Riverside who held on to it.

Some friends at work let me know (after seeing my post here) that riverside had it.

Plan on giving him a reward for it. So ya... made my day!

Great news Widetrack. Who says the whole world has gone to he**? Honest people return things or attempt to, thieves steal them. Glad to hear you got your gear, big relief no doublt. Good luck (with the new reels) and hang on. Bill

Since we're on the lost and found subject, anyone find a practically brand new auger cover for a Strikemaster 8.25" on Adrian's road the other day? I wouldn't even ask, but everywhere in town is sold out!! Now I'd like to try to get the one I lost somewhere on their road back if possible!

Glad you guys figured out the box, that's classy stuff!

Cool !!!! Great to hear you got your stuff back. Sure sucks having to replace fishing gear over again. It's sure nice to see somebody was honest and respected your property and went the extra mile to return it....WM.. whistle

Call the Williams Liquer store there is a note posted on the bulletin board in the lobby that says that they found some ice fishing gear.

Good luck

Or, try calling Strikemaster in Big Lake to see if they have any available. I'm sure they could ship one to you.

Good deal- I know the guy who found it, they call him "McLovin" looks like he spreads his love on LOW too.

      That's amazing, you have the same Avatar name as a guy who has been selling the same box on here since Sept. Did he give you a better deal then $80 bucks? 🤔

      I just purchased this from bold north outdoors,  now i have everything running off of my battery box.  Its pretty sweet.  I found them on facebook, many people make them, but after the cost of purchasing everything it would cost more then what this company is selling them for

      For portable power on the go, use a Bold North Outdoor battery box, solar panel, and a lithium battery.  You can hook up external 12v lights to the the terminal posts or a usb led light to the usb port.  Charge your electronics, and use the flash lights on the front of the box.   Many uses for this product just named a few, added a couple pictures of what I have inside of my Portable Battery Box. You can check them out on fb or just go to their website.  www.boldnorthoutdoors.com

      Back when I had to go to the barn to get a feed bucket to put my fishing gear in (which it all fit in one bucket), I could catch all kinds of nice fish with nothing more than a homemade rattle reel and a cheap jiggle stick.  As technology and equipment got better, my ability to catch fish went in the toilet.

      @Northlander   You still making rods?     mrpike, Steve makes some great specialized rods for reasonable prices.

      Striker Attack gloves look to be worth a try!  Just saw them at FF tonight - $45 if I remember correctly.   Seemed to be just the ticket; waterproof, breathable, insulated but not too much that you can’t operate.  I usually wear a large but I think an XL would be the right choice for me in that glove.   Really thought about giving them a go.  Still might!
    • Chetta09
      Thanks guys. Driving on lakes in that area with trucks sounds crazy! Wonder what goes through some people's minds.

      I just broke my last HT blues rod and cant find them locally. I just got a 13 Snitch and a 27" Ul tickle stick how do you all like these? I fish mostly sunfish these should handle the smaller tungsten jigs correct? Anything better out there I just cant justify 100 bucks on a rod I usually start with 3 rods and down to 1 by the end of the year yep I'm a klutz. The HT blues were great but just no back bone and annoying no hook holder cant expect much for 9 bucks but they sure worked good.

      Get a set of choppers to put over your nice gloves.  I throw choppers over my regular gloves when the bite gets slow.  Works like a charm.
