St. Francis Residents...


Recommended Posts

I know there are a few of you on here. I had a motor stolen from my place late sunday night or monday. 35hp Johnson long shaft. They took it right off my boat as it sat in the driveway. I can not afford to replace it, and would just like it back. I just got the boat fixed up so I could take my daughter out and now, no motor. mad

If anyone hears anything, send me an email or talk to the local PD. Like I said, I would just like it back.

That really sucks man. My parents house is just north of Bethel on Wiskey road. Theres so many thieves in the areas. Probably methheads. Good luck getting your motor back.

241st and Roanokee. Far NW corner of town.

It is things like this that take away a big level of trust in people. There is never a time when there is not someone here, never. Whoever took this motor knew it was there, and knew they could get it, thus 2 guys. I did make some calls to my direct neighbors to let them know to lock stuff up, but we all know locks are for honest people.

I know more than a few people around the area. I will give a shout out for everyone to keep their eyes open. Is it a specific color? Anything to distinguish it from any other motors?

Any distinct scratches/marks?

We are looking and actively watching the system.

Neighbor and gooseman, that does really suck! I live near Coon Lake and we have our fair share of low-lifes in the area. I keep my junk locked up in the garage but I still dont feel safe.

We dont have a police department so we depend on Anoka Cty. for police. They must be stretched pretty thin since we cant seem to get sheriffs office to even enforce the speed limit.

Neighbor, your motor sounds pretty distinctive and should be easy to spot. I will keep my eyes peeled since we get a fair number of rigs going by the house. Good Luck!

Some more info to the area residents.

My Mother in Law lives in the "Community" just west of County Market. They reported 7 thefts over the weekend including an expensive GPS unit out of a Poice Officers car.

Seems like a crew might be working the area so keep an eye open for suspicious people and merchandise.

My dogs bark at every stinkin noise they hear at night. And I get up and look out the windows and sometimes let them out to check things. This is a time I'm thankful for that.

This year the dogs will have back up. wink

I just got off the phone with the investigator with SFPD. He said that northern anoka co. has "exploded" with theft right now. Doing all the tricks, stealing from your yard when you are home, taking boats, motors, trailers, campers, they are even getting the universal door openers and driving around poping garaged doors.

Not good.

I have seen this explosion myself. Around here(on Coon Lake) a few residents around the lake have experienced a big hike in theft. We recently had 3 cars broken into(not much was stolen, but it still was stolen). Plus I am always on the look out for suspicious looking vehicles I have never seen around. We have a pretty good community watch program going on, but its not enough to deter the criminals. I make sure to keep my eyes on the neighbors and hope they do the same for me.

Born2Fish, Are you talking about the east side of Coon or the South or West? I am on the west side away from the lake.

North side....Tri Oaks area. I have heard that they have had these kind of problems here for a while. Every month or so they get a few car break ins or garage break ins.

      Kudos for doing this. I'm sure a lot of fishermen would not have.
    • MikeG3Boat
      I know it has been raining all week but anyone have any walleye reports?  Heading up for the holiday weekend and want to do some fishing.
    • MikeG3Boat
      Partyonpine, Would you be willing to share in what areas you were getting some nice Bluegills?  I am on the east end on big bay and would like to find some good panfish.
    • partyonpine
      Opener and the week after were good.  Not the numbers we normally get but better quality in the East End.  Not surprised on the weights for the Auto City a.  Usually for us we only catch a few slot fish but we averaged 3 a day for 10 days.  2 overs, biggest 27 inches.     Our best luck was 12-16 feet for quality.  When we went deeper we caught more but smaller.  Bass were really starting to heat up.  For me little earlier than normal.  Found some nice Bluegills the day we went after some panfish.  Dock fishing was as many as we wanted per usual.
    • Shulsebus
      We will be up on June 8th for the week. It will be our 13th year in a row staying on the lake.  I hope the walleye are hitting the bobbers by the time that we get there. 
    • SkunkedAgain
      Those are some fine specimens. Great job
    • gimruis
      I'm quite shocked to hear that a walleye tournament is still doing a live weigh in.  Virtually every event these days around here is doing a catch, photo, and release format.   Regardless, nice work.  Congrats.

      On the south end...   A great week of fishing with walleyes and saugers caught in good numbers.   The go-to presentation, again, was a jig and frozen emerald shiner.  Emerald shiners are a staple in LOW and walleyes love them.  Other minnows worked also, but emerald shiners are a favorite of anglers for good reason.   The Lighthouse Gap area, Morris Point Gap and just in front of Pine Island held nice fish in 17 - 21' of water.  Various schools of walleyes and saugers across the south shore.     A quarter ounce jig in gold, glow white, pink, orange, chartreuse, or a combo of these colors tipped with a minnow worked well again.   Some big pike and jumbo perch being caught by walleye anglers. On the Rainy River...  Some nice walleyes were caught on the river this weekend, although most anglers normally head to the lake.  12 - 15' of water is holding some nice fish.   Sturgeon fishing on the Rainy River is closed until the keep season starts up again July 1st. Up at the NW Angle...  Some nice walleyes being caught along with a mixed bag.  12 - 25 feet of water.  Points, neck down areas and bays with warming water were holding good fish this week.    The go-to presentation was a jig and minnow as on the south shore.  A mixed bag as is common around the Angle.

      Nice work!   Here's two words you hardly ever hear anyone say anymore.  "grateful and humbled"   
    • Brianf.
      RLG, thanks for the shout-out!     Jeff and I are still trying to wrap our heads around what happened this past weekend.  We are humbled and full of gratitude  for having won 'The Classic' for a second time.     We practiced through all the rain on Thurs and the wind on Friday and found six different spots holding big fish.  Fishing was good on both days with several 'overs' in our catch...but would it hold up for another day?   We didn't know.     On tourney day, we made a long run to our first spot where I lucked out on a 26.5"er on my second cast.  Jeff followed up with a thick 27" er a few minutes later, which turned out to be the big fish for the event at 7.26lbs.  We finished out our limit and weighed-in at 10:30 am for the welfare of the fish in our livewell.    There were some big weights in this event which would have won in most other years, but - for whatever reason - this was our day.  Everything just went our way.  Again, we are just super grateful and humbled by this success.  We also want to congratulate all the other anglers who did well and give a big 'thank you' to the tournament organizers who put on such a great event!
