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.

      Looks like Peltier Lake is locked up. Clear Lake was about 97% locked up. Just one little open hole in the middle. Forest Lake also looked to be at least 95% iced up. There were a couple small holes that a bunch of swans were keeping open. Someone on the north shore still has their dock out, and pontoon in the water! They better take advantage of this warm up and get to work!    Would appreciate more reports, especially in Isanti County and Hinckley area.

      I drove by the chain the other day and it looked to be locked up.  Don or anyone else have thickness updates? thanks!

      By my sons stand he sees about 15 to 20 of them scraping around for acorns. Drives him nuts thinking he has the 20 point buck coming in!  😟

      Nevermind the above post. Take a look at the webcams around the lake and there is very little open water. I had read Raven77's report and with the calm conditions and cold she iced up. If a good wind blows it may open up some but by the looks of things it will not happen again until spring. Lets hope for good safe ice conditions this winter and a nice snowpack for the snowmobiles.   Steve

      Where were all these critters back when the season was open?  Been seeing several just about every day during the gun season - none while hunting during the early bow season.  Oh well, looks like a promising spring.

      Really liking the Mountain Mikes reproduction skulls. This is the third one and so much easier than boiling!! 20 bucks at Mills. They have fancy skulls also but I really like the white.

      Good luck this winter cookie and be safe!

      So sad to hear about the fire yesterday. Appears they are considering rebuilding and I am hopeful they are better than ever in the future!

      And just like that there was ice as far as you could see? From what I have been herring walking traffic this weekend as long as this mild warm up and winds do not change everything.  tyler did go out yesterday and got 1 plus a miss. I personally will not be on the lake until blue thunder can drive out there. All though we added a small Kia to the fleet .  Yesterday the phone was crazy with fishermen calling about how much ice. I'm hereing 3 to 5 closer in.   We have been busy final prepping the house's and trucks. plus bow hunting Looks like I may be adding a grand ice castle to the fleet  plus I added California fish house last year at the end of the season.

      So whos all anxious for this season spearing? I been watching vids lately on youtube getting all pumped up for this coming season.   What is everybody's thoughts on the pike slot zones? I think its gonna be a tough one this year to try judging the sizes in the hole. Any clue if this is a forever thing or only experimental for the zones?
