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.

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.

      Toddrun, You are correct. It seems as if it’s still larvea down there in big bay. Have seen very few , if any mayflies in the air. 
    • toddrun
      Nice fish Reid, We saw lots of clouds coming out of the mud also, but didn't know what was hatching.  Did see lots of dragonfly's, but not much for fishflies or mayflies in the air.  We didn't have any big fish luck for found keeper fish in the first rock edges around the mud. A guy in our resort claimed he caught a 32" Walleye, but we didn't see any pic's, so not verified, although had several witnesses that confirmed it.  Would have been nice to see it though.

      Bass is my favorite fish to eat.    I always keep them.   If anyone told me not to I would tell them to go to [email protected]#$.    I always eat everything I catch. Catch and release is a choice not a law.   As long as people eat what they catch I have no problem with what ever they catch.   Those who waste fish I have a problem with or those who catch and release too much and end up killing fish I even have a bigger problem with.   Don

      The OP specifically requested advice on how to best address what he personally considers an issue; respectfully. And yes, I do agree, and therefore respect his request enough to answer it; respectfully. I’ve personally dealt with the same conflict of interest in the past and feel that I understand the emotions on both sides enough to offer qualified advice that is more practical and useful than just saying mind your own darn business.

      Hit BSL on Friday to tryand find those slabs again... They were right in the same area as the last time I was out, but could not get one to bite to save my life... They were taunting me jumping all around me... I got some walleyes, nothing over 14" though... The bugs were horrible on the north side, so bad they drove me to the south side haha.
    • kfk
      If someone is legal keeping 15"+ bass, it's none of your business whether they keep 15"+ fish or not. Just walk away and leave it alone.  If you want to change the regulations, try doing it in the proper manner instead of a confrontation at the boat ramp.  I don't know how others would react, but if you approached me, it certainly wouldn't be positive experience.
    • Mike89
      so what do have against harpooners?????  the Indians did it before us????????????   
    • Reid Saarela
      28.5, but the fattest walleye we’ve seen. My dad and I both agreed it was a bigger fish than my 30 last summer. Wish we would have weighed it but I would rather have the fish swim off healthy! 
    • delcecchi
      I don't confront people on the water about what they do.  Expressing an opinion in general is fine.  Getting up in people's face is different, as I hope you agree.
    • IceHawk
      That's awesome Don. Very creative and looks like fun.
