I know this is a long shot but last night (12/2/2018) between 0000-0900 hours someone pryed into my locked topper and stole my FL-12,  It's in the pro pack 2 style with the digital battery read out.  My truck was in the townhouse parking lot in Golden Valley.  I filed report with the police and have called several local pawn shops, posted a stolen ad on C-List and on a few FB sites.  If anyone sees one of these for sale anywhere please let me know.  It was one of the only outdoor pieces of equipment I didn't sell for graduate school tuition and unfortunately cannot fund purchasing another one.  With it being less than 375$ new the 500$ deductible on my insurance is not worth it.  So if you are out an about and see one matching this description let me know and I can call the police and reference my case number

It had been back there since Thanksgiving, I have a fiberglass topper and they pulled on the tailgate got it to pop a little then pryed between the tailgate and the box. Came out topper window still down and locked tailgate dropped and full of snow. There's some iffy apartments nearby and I got a better timeline from the plow guys, was between 0300-0500. From my experience in emergency services people awake at that time on a Saturday night are up to no good.

Police found it, someone stole it at 0400 and pawned it at 0900 within 10 miles.  Person didn't know what it was or what it was worth and the pawn shop payed them 65$.  Lesson learned, anything you own with a serial number should be documented somewhere.  Anything electronic that gets pawned gets put into a database and law enforcement can look it up.  I'm incredibly great full since I did not have the funds to replace it.    

 

Dang, I knew I should have gone to the Pawn store at 0910!  😅    Glad it all worked out.  🙂

      Was out on Osakis yesterday evening on some midlake humps using 1/4oz jigs with leeches in the hopes I could find a few cooperative walleyes. I was getting pestered by what I thought were perch stealing my leeches. I'm a slow learner so it took too long for me to finally downsize my presentation until my dozen leeches were nearly gone. I finally downsized to 1/8oz digs and caught fish. It was 10" sunnies that were stealing my bait. Once I figured that out, I grabbed my crappy/sunny rod with a flu-flu jig and proceeded to have a pretty good time catching sunnies. I had a container of crawlers with me and just cut them up to tip the jig. Kept five for a meal but could have easily filled out.    They were near the bottom in 18' of water.

      FishHawk and Depth Raider are your choices as Sub Troll and Canon are no longer manufactured.   If you don't have any of the above your relying what you see on your sounder and for speed your looking at the blow back or the timing of the thump from a Flasher.   Interpreting speed at the ball this way is a guessing game but it works along with varying your speed. It might not tell you a precise speed but you should be slowing and speeding up not matter what method for speed your using.  If you set your speed at 2.5 and stick there all day your probably won't boat as many fish as if you were coming in and out of 2-3 MPH all day.    Would speed and temp at the ball be useful, absolutely. Wouldn't it be nice to know that fish hit at 75' down in 45 degree water at 2.8 MPH.   Maybe you it was on a speed up or down when it hit too.

      Seems just fine but I'm not big on eating out and I don't drink anymore so I'm not a frequent flyer of any establishment

      We are?  I hadn't noticed any such activity.      So, how do you like the new reconstituted Landing?   
    • trumy
      Just curious what any posts on this page have to do with the landing? I really don't care but some of you are sure quick to point out when posts get off the intended subject 
    • delcecchi
      Good to know.  Didn't know that they had boats.

      Went out of agate in 2 harbors on Saturday from about 8 am to 2 pm after missing the last couple weekends (family vaca). Tough bite. Had 1 short strike on the rigger at 50' with a spoon and 1 screamer hit a tail dancer long lined on a board (must've been a pretty good sized steelie as I've never seen a board disappear behind the boat like that before). Unfortunately it came unpinned. 0 for 2 in 6 hrs of fishing. Tried depths from 20 to 70, tried plugs, spoons, flies, etc. Talked to another gent at the dock and they managed 14. Really love hearing that when you come off defeated and someone out in the same area doing mostly the same things lights them up.   Looking at getting a fishhawk x2 to try and find the thermocline and get on the fish faster. Anyone have experience with the down temp/speed devices on the market and are they a must have like I've heard from some?

      Excellent Skunked, I'll give them a call

      PSU - call the boat graveyard in Shakopee, right next to Valley Fair. It's called Twin City Outboard. I once went in looking for a replacement lower unit for a 3hp 1957 Johnson Seahorse. I was happy when the guy said they had it. When I got there, the guy brought out a box of them so that I could look them over and get the right color! They've got a lot of boats too. Cool place to visit and look around.
