To the person who stole my waders at West Medicine Lake Park: I have your license plate number

Recommended Posts

MedBoy

I saw you take them and couldn't believe my eyes. You were fishing in the newly constructed pond area where the stream opens up from the wetlands into the pond in the afternoon. Now, I have no problem with people fishing in what is essentially my backyard and I understand it is an enticing spot after the renovation of the wetlands, but if you're going to be taking things from me that are clearly mine (as i neatly folded them and put them aside in the grass next to an open area where I took them off) then that is a problem.

I have your license plate info and will report you to the authorities and lawyering up if you don't find a way to give them back to me within a week (June 26th). If you happen to frequent this forum and see this, you can pm me and you can return them anonymously no harm done. If you fail to do so, I will be reporting you to the authorities and may God have mercy on your soul, not to mention legal and financial status. They aren't a lot of money, but they were new and a birthday gift to me from my sister, so it does have sentimental value.

Godspeed good sir.

Agreed. Easier to drop the charges later than to explain why you waited so long to report it.

And the response will be......he knew I had them and he did nothing to get them back for so long, I assumed they were abandoned. Case closed, you get them back and he faces no disciplinary actions.

not to be an A-hole...but they were in the grass. Where were you? Is it possible that he didn't know they were yours, and that someone may have thought they were abandoned?

. I have no problem with people fishing in what is essentially my backyard

Was it your back yard or not? It may seem like splitting hairs but it makes a world of difference. If your property line was not crossed, no crime was committed, if it was then it is clearly theft. The way I read your statement, the waders were left on property not owned by you, but that abuts yours. You left the waders unattended and when you noticed the individual taking them, you neither identified yourself nor did you let it be known the the waders were yours. Further compounding the problem, you have waited to report the loss/theft for a substantial amount of time, hoping that the individual actually is a member of this forum or reads it. Clearly an unreasonable belief. Unless my reading is incorrect you have no case to support a charge of theft, not only that but it may appear to bolster a claim that the property in question was in fact abandoned.

      Pretty quiet in here.  I've been fishing out of town the past 2 weeks.  Hope to fish the area lakes this week.  Heard reports of a good day crank bite on the chain but not much else.  With the full moon coming up this week may try some evening trolling.  Anyone else having any luck?

      Haven’t fished the river for weeks and came home to high, muddy water so I doubt I will for another week.  I’d focus on shorelines and whatever backwater I could find at this time if I did go.

      It was slow for me Tuesday afternoon and Thursday in Frazer / Smarts Bay. Wednesday was very good in 20-25 feet leeches / crawlers on a Lindy or a jig. Absolutely beautiful weather!

      My wife and I had a good morning on Friday with bottom bouncers, spinners and crawlers in 20-24 ft.  Caught 9, threw back 3 18-19 in, 2 13-14 in.

      I would head over the hill into the back country and fish the streams and lakes. You will have much better success catching fish. Bring bug spray

      Lori has some nice gills and some okay crappies normally. Green has nicer sized crappies and gills. Ann lake has been kicking out some great fish. Check out fishing club.

      Streams won’t have much of anything to offer this time of year. Maybe a couple tiny smolt rainbows. There are all kinds of shorefishing spots in the area though. Stream mouths are always the obvious spots to try. Spoons and spinners.

      How was the trip? I was on the lake Tuesday and the weather was as good as it gets!

      For those looking for some decent perch they seem to be hanging in the reeds chasing crawfish and minnows.   Some real dandies in there if you're in the right patch of reeds.  Not many out on the flats yet.

      Been a tough bite the last couple days for me. Catching a few here and there but no consistency. Caught fish on crawlers leechesand jigging raps but for the amount of fish I’m graphing not near enough catching All my bigger fish have came on the jigging raps. How is everyone else doing?
