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.  🙂

      For Vermilion, the Lowrance lake insight data is identical to Lakemaster, 3 foot contours.
    • delcecchi
      Maybe you should check the various sites that sell mapping stuff?   What is the Lowrance offering?   Is there a different Navionics choice?

      You're correct trumy.  I just posted this on that page.  Thank you.

      Hi everyone, I will be heading to Echo Lake, in the superior national Forest, the middle of June.  Never been there, but the small amount I found on this site says it's a good fishing lake.  Does anyone have past experience on this lake?  I'm targeting walleye mostly, but Pike and crappie are always on my menu.  Are there any lure colors that have worked well for you?  I'm mostly a live bait fisherman.  Any presentations that worked well?  Any advice will be greatly appreciated with this lake, and I will report back how it went/what worked.  Thank you everyone.

      I brought a notarized letter from their mother and they required it back when I did it. The other documents prove who he is but not whether the father is spiriting him away.
