More stolen gear!!

Recommended Posts

Powerstroke

My dad had the back of his truck broken into. Stolen were an old Strikemaster Magnum III 49cc auger and a new Marcum VX-1 pro. Other rods, reels and tackle stolen too. Vehicle was locked and tonneau was locked too so please no comments about how to be prevented etc.

Of course I'll be looking in the usual places like crags, bay and the papers.....but if anyone sees any gear combos for sale or whatever.

This was taken in North Mpls near Penn and 42ave n.

sorry to hear about the loss,hopefully you find it or at least some of it,idk why ppl have to steal it,we work hard to buy all our stuff (auger,poles,tackle) and then they steal it, to me these kind of ppl are just worthless,why not be like the rest of us and go buy ur own gear!

Can't help myself on this one but leaving anything unattended in that part of town locked or not is asking for trouble.

Powerstroke,sorry to hear about that I was just talking to your dad about fishing last week. We work together but different shifts.The sad part of this is it's not going to get any better. Just wait till the unemployment benefits start running out with no jobs to be had. Tell bob steve says hi.

It seems to me that the crackheads now have a idea how much money someone can have tied up into fishing.

It is a sad era in these times.

Sorry about this terrible event. Hopefully it doesn't take any time off the water

I would be very mad if I lost my stuff that way. I bet my tackle box alone has over 300 bucks with of tackle in it, not including all of my other gear. I couldn't imagine losing it all in one fell swoop. Did you check about the insurance? Comp may cover it.

I'd also look at some local Pawn shops in that area....this may have ran across your mind already but it's worth a shot. A lot of these thieves are pretty foolish when it comes to getting rid of stolen merchandise and will do anything to turn a quick dollar. I had a similar experience back in college and the guy ended up dumping my stuff and at least 4-5 other peoples stuff at various pawn shops in the area. Good luck recovering.

My garage just got popped on Monday. I lost about $1500 worth of tools and fishing gear. Ice fishing and open water gear. I know a cop who took down my information. He has a program that emails him if anything that I've described to him shows up at a pawn shop. I guess we'll see what happens. Good luck!

Steve I will tell him HI.

LIke I said it was broken in to, not laying in the driveway.

Fortunately he made a police report which all get posted at the pawn shops. A couple of them have been pretty good about it. I doubt it will turn up but you never know. Thanks for the kind words.

      7-10 days the lake will be ice free. Which will be almost right on average ice out (April 30). Pike bay is open up to Duffy island working up the bay. Paddled from the Pike river up the bay to the ice line tonight.

      Fake chirp as marketing gimmick.    They need something to convince folks to buy their unit and dump their unit from two years ago.    I am reserving judgement on the new higher frequency units.  "mega" and equiv.   Side scan actually seems like it could be useful.  Lots of stuff is changing these days in electronics.       I think what would be cool is an underwater drone with several transducers that communicates back to the boat wirelessly with sonar and video.....    Fresh water doesn't block radio waves too much so probably could use radio communication at least for a limited distance.       Some sort of modulated acoustic waves would work too.       Can't you just see, sitting in the boat, driving the mini-sub around looking  for fish, with sonar to help?   I bet the open water musky guys would pay big bucks for one....😂

      Heading up to the river in the morning trying to decide if I should fish up the river or out if wheelers.

      Sure wish we would get a strong enough east wind to pile the ice on shore. Lot of ice out there and it will take a long time if it has to all melt.

      Friends and family would worry about me if I was too afraid of getting a little wet to go fishing. Every time each one of us drives to the lake or on a lake, we are in danger of a teen girl or drunk killing us. Or a brake failure or shift and throttle or steering cable causing our rig to lose control. I bust through each spring coming off the ice. Which is why I know that it's not fatal. In Nov. I ask the bait shop owner if anybody has been out, if he says "No, its not safe" I smile and buy bait. I've been fishing when waves were crashing onto the ice MANY times. When the 1.25" ice cracks between my feet from a cough... I just DONT cough! If I have my choice I'm going to die while fishing!! That's why I fish more than I sleep or work in a year. You 'safe' people are going to die, maybe in a accident maybe from cancer, 'safe' doesn't matter!! This is who I am!! I spend more money and more time fishing than ANYTHING else!! Don't worry about me, folks!! I have survived tons of close calls.... The time we were on superior ice fishing 6 miles from shore... After dark and nearly got hit by the 1001' American Spirit ship comes to mind. We abandoned most of our gear to run once we realized what was happening. One last time... I WANT TO DIE FISHING!!  Hope that helps you guys understand. Good luck living forever.
