Honestly, odds of getting something back to it's owner via HSO has had about a 50% success rate over the last few years. Have even had a couple times when the persons stuff I have found have been members here smile. Chances are, if a person has lost something, and they look hard enough, they will find their way here eventualy.

We should all chip in and buy Rick something for his generosity over the years. I know with certainty that he needs a new rod and reel combo...that thing he's using now is a piece of junk! wink

Someone found the one I keet stashed in the rocks frown looks like that one is gone for good. It was a decent set up when I brought it down there 3-4yrs ago, Finnor Ahab rod, Pinnacle Deadbolt peak limmited reel. Time to find another junker to hide grin

After you found the owner of the last one found,Im crossing my fingers too.A rod and reel hidden in the rocks is something I would just leave alone in its place.Ppl leave things like that all the time to come back to and use as they please.I find nice folding chairs stashed and occasionally a net stashed near a good spot but it doesn't belong to me.I may use the chair or net but it stays there.

It's a shame that your combo got stolen...if anybody deserved a douche-bag-free hiding spot, it's certainly you. If you ever want a trip up to Mille Lacs, all the gas is on me.

Not real upset someone found it, like you said, it was a piece of junk grin just hope they needed it more than I did. Besides, it was getting to be time to replace it anyway wink

I thought you liked that Deadbolt?

When it was new, it was a top of the line reel. I replaced it with a Gander Guide series and a Pfluger reel, it's already stashed somewhere along the river wink

Btw, Tom, did you see someone had leeches for sale here on HSO list?

      Was up last week on Kab and it seemed that your bait depended on where you were fishing. Some areas leeches did good, but others minnows were the go to. We lindy rigged the entire trip and on days when wind was gusty we did pretty good shallower with minnows in 13 to 20 ft....then some areas we were doing better with leeches 16 to 32 ft. No wind was like the dead sea.
    • Mike89
      catch and eat the crawfish too!!!
    • Uncle Boney
      I can second A Warrior.  Jumbo leeches for Walleye.  Northern were more interested in minnows and crawlers.

      A Carp Anglers Group Fishing social will be on June 23rd in Coon Rapids. If you enter the park from the Coon Rapids side (Egret Blvd), take a left from the parking lot and drive towards the picnic shelters. Take a right at the first stop sign and park in the lot. We will be fishing in the stretch or river behind the picnic shelter/playground. Start time can be before 7am and you can fish into the evening if you want. There will be medals for the 3 largest fish captured.

      Thanks for lots of good info guys.  Sounds like if I do things right I can have fish for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I'll try fishing that reef for some evening walleye. Bobber fish for some sunnies in the weeds.  @delcecchi, I catch enough Walleye in the summer that I really don't want to ask. I won't shy away from a bite. I'll check that little bay for crappies.  @vermilionfox, Wow that is a lot of location data. My PROP thanks you for the rock info!  Merry Go Round? I have another question regarding the Rusty Crawfish... are they a problem on the west side of the lake too? Bloody mini lobsters. I remember spending lots of time using orange for bass and walleye since they were a major food source. Been years since I've done that.  Gone Out Fishin

      I don't think you will be able to run it on that generator. I have a yamaha 2000 and I have not tried it yet but from everything I have read you need 2800 watts to start the AC. All the 2018 ice castle fish houses are coleman mach 3 plus AC I think. 
    • BigVwalters
      The fishing was pretty decent over the weekend.  Walleyes were biting on rigs with leeches or crawlers. Caught 12 between Friday and Saturday with with 4 nice slotters.   Biggest being a 24".   
    • Borch
      Star Island in Cass Lake has remote, boat in primitive camping as well.

      Just returned from a successful trip on Kab.  Minnows did catch fish, but leeches were the ticket

      Angling regulations on Lake of the Woods and the Rainy River in northern Minnesota would change under a proposal being considered by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources to reduce the number of walleye and sauger allowed to be kept in the winter on the lake, and on the river allowing only catch-and-release fishing for those fish in the spring.  “We recently went through a public process of updating the Lake of the Woods Fisheries Management Plan and identified several potential areas of concern with regard to current levels of harvest,” said Phil Talmage, Baudette fisheries supervisor. “That’s why we’re discussing these potential changes.” The proposed changes would reduce the aggregate limit of walleye and sauger in the winter to align with the summer regulations on Lake of the Woods, and make spring angling on the Rainy River catch-and-release for walleye and sauger. The changes would go into effect starting March 1, 2019. Anglers will see yellow signs at public water accesses around Lake of the Woods and the Rainy River later this month notifying the public of the proposal. Future news releases will provide the details of a formal public comment period during the fall, and will include ways to provide comment to the DNR on the proposal. For more information on Lake of the Woods management go to mndnr.gov/lakeofthewoods. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
