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.

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.

      Any smallmouth reports?

      Well I went out Sunday of opening weekend. Ugh. I felt like I was hunting the Congo! So darn hot and buggy. Thank god for thermacell! I did pass on a small 3 pt. It was fun to watch him, he was making rubs on trees all over around me. I'm actually glad nothing else came out, dealing with it in that heat would have taken a lot of fun out of the process.

      i've been up on Sandpoint a number of times that late in the year. I always focused on main lake drop off. especially sand if you can find it. Walleyes, big crappies and smallmouth will all be congregated in those areas. One spot I fished dropped off into 70 feet. I usually fished 20-30 ' depths oh, I should mention. Usually we used lindy rigs with minnows. Jigs did work too. especially if you slowly drop it and feel the strike on the fall.

      Unfortunately that’s the norm at just about every popular community spot on lakes/rivers. I fished the zumbro river this past opener, and filled up the back of my truck with discarded bottles and cans. While litter certainly isn’t pretty to look at, it doesn’t mean the river is polluted.

      There is a new scale introduced this year by Rapala and it is better than the other ones because of one simple change: instead of the metal hook there is a clip.  This is what they use in tournaments.  It has a locking mechanism that hooks to the lower jaw.  The hook sucks.  Always has, always will.  Sticking a metal hook up inside the gills of a fish to weigh it is a terrible idea, plus they can shake off and then smack on the floor and die.  Skip the hook, use the clip.

      Both types of minnows are working. Crawlers are still getting most of our fish in some locations. Cliff

      Guys what I was trying to say with my last post was, That I was in the wrong place, Because this is about Vermilion Lake. If you scroll to the top. Under that blue strip you can find the topic of this form It says Quote "Vermilion-Pelican Lake-Chisholm-Cook-Ely-Eveleth-Hibbing-Orr-Virginia Fishing Reports  Water Level"  That's how I know I'm in the wrong Place!    -Best of luck Fishing.

      You guys catching them on pike suckers or chubs?  Hopefully the wind dies down this afternoon.  Coming up with a big group to help me do the docks and 2 of the hoists.  I have the requisite adult beverages need to get them some fish for the frying pan.

      I've been using the "modern step" scales for about a year now. I bought them on Amazon. They have very good reviews, and the scales are very convenient and suitable for weighing anything.  Here is the link https://www.amazon.com/Professional-Accurate-Reloading-Modern-Step/dp/B01N25OC6P/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1536218450&sr=8-1&keywords=fish+scale
