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.

      Out tonight with the kids, honeycomb ice on the top 2 inches with water over the sheet of thick ice. Exposed shorelines are soft, my dog and kids broke through while walking. Even though the shores are shot for driving I’m guessing we’ll have good walkable ice (waders) for a while...
    • Wanderer
      Haha - ya I spose!  Only we weren’t shooting paper.  Painted steel hanging targets with a spotter and spotting scope. Drive to em to paint em but no retrieval.  
    • smurfy
      yea no target pic...……...I aint buying it!!!!!!!!😁 awesome looking gun !!!!!!!!!

      Got out for a couple hours yesterday. West end of Francis again, several small sunnies but no crappies this time. Access is pretty beat up, need waterproof boots but the ice is holding up so far. Couple guys had an Argo out.

      Nice @AlwaysFishing23!   We drove by there last night and were tempted to pop a few holes but had burgers on the brain too much.   I got over half of the bottom part of the list done today and 1 part of the top list done, which was much more fun!   A friends custom 6.5 dialed in.  Started at 500 yards and finished at 1000; 7 mph cross wind.  My favorite hits were the 4 inch circle at 550; the 4”x5” plate at 700 and managing a 12 inch 3 shot group at 1000.  Man, he’s got this baby down.
    • monstermoose78
      Wow the fish were on fire but little. I caught so many 4-7 inch gills and one 3 over 7 inches. Crappies were harder to come by and 5-7 inches. 
    • AlwaysFishing23
      Got out fishing this morning at about 9am and was off by 2. Had a group of good buddies join and ended with 3 limits of big gills (8”-9.5”),  (limit on this lake is 10 per person per day) 2 jumbo perch, 3 decent pike, and 3 largemouth ( all pike and bass were released immediately as they are out of season). AWESOME day with a good group of buds. Sight fishing in 4-5FOW made the action even more fun😁 if you were able to get out it was a great day to be out with friends, family or the kiddos.

      We get mailboat delivery on Black Duck Island (east Frazer Bay) starting around the 1st of June through the first week of September. Other times, the Tower PO is good about holding mail. Aronson Marina runs the mailboat and could answer your question about Portage Bay.  Good luck, Dick
