Found Tackle Box

Found a tackle box up on Lake Osakis this morning. It wasn't in any of the community spots or I wouldn't of found it with amount of guys up there. LOL!  Wow you would think the Caughren point area was the only place to catch and sight fish.They should of been there a week and a half ago when we found them fresh 😲   Glad I have better spots where social or should I say solo distancing was happening 😉 If anyone lost one out there off the beaten path I found it feel free to PM me with the contents and Ill get it back to you somehow. If nobody claims it I'll donate it to a kid (and No not you Smurfey 😂) to get him a good start into ice fishing some good stuff in there!

Hope you can get that box back ro it rightful owner iceyhawk! 

 

Not all of us spend every day on that same lake... so we fish where the crowd is sometimes😏 

Take yesterday for example, Tommy and I hit 7 spots between us, picking up junk fish with a good one now and then pretty much everywhere.... so by mid day I was wore out from walking and drilling... We too opted to fish the point area... btw also a lot of junk fish there ... infact that whole noth end has been a lot of junk since early ice.  Skinny fish, lots of parisites and some strange greyish mold in the meat of two fish I tossed in the garbage... Big O really isnt what it used to be😏

I very much congratulate you on wanting to find the owner and getting it back to him , not all would surely do that , much to be said about your ethics , well done !  I hope the owner does indeed get ahold of you but would suggest the returning to him waits until after all settles down . With the shelter in place order that begins tonight , the owner going to your place to get it , or you going to his place to get it to him  becomes impossible to do as that surely is not necessary travel what so ever .. I guess if you could somehow package it up in a box after sanitizing it , place sufficient postage on it and only if you have mail service at home , because a trip to the post office would not be able to be done with shelter in place , then it could be sent to him , but with that said he would have to have direct mail to his house service also because the same would hold true for him not being able to go to his post office to retrieve it ...  I hope you all do your part .  If the owner never reaches out to you your plan to give it to a kid sometime down the road sounds like a splendid answer to this dilemma..

Hopefully I do  find the owner it had some good stuff in there. It would be nice to see someone get it back we have all been there on lost or forgot a item it stinks! 

 

HMM 😀 but you do on others didn't you just have a photo and post up couple weeks ago about how you fished hard for 5 weeks on the same lake  best local bite you've seen  and had to be in a certain cabbage bed.with numerous 9's released  😉LOL!   Glad you and Tommy dialed some in yesterday was a beutifull day better weather then todays up there. Sight fishing is a hoot! I thought  the gills were real thick this year infact  bunch of us commented on it. That grey mold your talking about can't say I saw it in any of my fish all winter up there wonder what it was ? Has me concerned but never heard any of guys I know that fished there mention it. Did find a couple with worms but very very few. I would beg to differ on Osakis having all junk fish on that N end it was a strong year out there. Where we were fishing by ourselves was about as good as you could get. Especially out of the bay and in the main lake.  I know few other guys that had great bites out there some you know.👍  Definitely not the numbers of 10's like years past that I will agree but still plenty of 9 inch plus fish and some sumo craps. Tossed back 2 over 14 this year.  She might not be what she once was but I love it!  Looking forward to open water out there for sure!

      The other boats I've owned had the bow roller positioned so the roller hits the keel when the boat is snubbed up, not the bow eye.

      New 2020 1875 Pro Guide. Helix 12 Mega SI graph. Can't read bottom when up on plane. I was going to adjust the transducer and this is what I found. Isn't the first rule in transducer placement to put it where there is "clean", undisturbed water flow?? It is below the bottom of the boat, maybe too far. It's a side imaging transducer so I feel the riggers wanted it close to the center of the boat. Where have others placed a side imaging transducer and have it read bottom when up on plane? I don't think you can move it closer to the center line. If you move it to the left of it's current position, the is the power strake in the front 1/3 of the boat. Any help is appreciated!!

      New 2020 boat. Livewell is leaking into the boat. Upon further review I found the leak. It's on the white fitting of the recirculation system where the water goes back into the livewell. I'm sure the rigger broke the little nipple on the right side when he installed the fuel/water separating filter as the gray gas line is right there. My question is where does the tubing from the little nipple go? The front livewell?

      Hi all. I am currently at Rush Lake near Perham at Four Seaons Resort. We’ve been here three days and have caught basically nothing. Can anyone give me some advice on walleyes here? Where to go and good baits for this lake? I’ll take any advice on any type of fish you might experience with on this lake. Never been here before.....

      Has anybody used these Felpro washers? My kid's Corollas oem washer is coated aluminum. This Felpro is a synthetic material. I mistakenly ordered it from Rock Auto. Not a big loss if I chuck them and get the oem ones. OEM on the left. Felpro on the right.

      I have TWO new Adirondack Chair and Table sets available for immediate sale. Both sets include two chairs and a ceramic-top table. One set also includes a pair of matching footrests.
      These sets are constructed of weather-resistant Canadian cedar which will last many years. The chair frames and armrests use 2 x 6 and 2 x 8 lumber making them the sturdiest Adirondack chairs available. They are also coated with a minimum of two coats of premium deck/furniture stain and assembled using only rust-proof coated deck screws.

      The chairs are designed to accommodate most individuals from petite to XXXL and have a contoured seat and back so you can comfortably sit in these for hours. All edges and sitting surfaces are rounded and sanded smooth for added comfort.
      These are available for immediate pick-up in the Grand Rapids area ... or I can deliver within a 15 mile radius at no charge. Delivery beyond 15 miles of Grand Rapids is also available for a nominal charge.

      Full Set - $800:
      - 2 Adirondack Chairs
      - 2 Matching Footrests
      - 1 Matching Ceramic-topped Side Table

      Chair/Table Set - $600
      - 2 Adirondack Chairs
      - 1 Matching Ceramic-topped Side Table

      These are available as sets only. However I can build separate pieces to your order.
       
      Please PM me for questions or with orders. First come, first served. New orders typically take 3 or 4 weeks.

      Hey all, I’m new to the state (moved here from Ontario) and am in the Eagan area. I was sad to find that my boat is a little large for most lakes within a short drive (20-30 minutes), so I bought a kayak. The boat will get saved for trips up north. 
       
      Anyways, I was hoping to get some info on lakes/ rivers to try around Eagan. I don’t need specific spots, just lakes that hold fish. Was hoping for walleye/ crappie/ pike. 
       
      Any tips would be appreciated!

      Well, the highway 70 access won me over yesterday, only to break my heart today. I should have seen the warning signs at the start of the day. Get to the launch, get everything ready, about to put boat in the water...forgot the life jackets! 😫 I drove to the Walmart in Pine City and bought 2 life jackets! Finally got on the water. Was a nice boat ride upstream. Was hoping maybe to make it all the way up to the mouth of the Snake River. Probably made it halfway before it got too shallow. I most likely could have made it through had I had more ambition, but we needed to start fishing. Hooked into a few fish right away, but lost them. I’m pretty sure one was a small muskie. Ended up drifting all the way back to boat launch, and only caught 2 fish! And both were just a couple hundred yards up from the launch! Was a smallie and a little walleye. So yes, slow day indeed. Looks like a nice trail system at the access though. Might have to plan a hike there this summer.

      Going to lake vermillion for the first time. June 13. Staying near Arrow Head Point, Isle of Pines. Only have a small boat with 15 HP so looking for some tips for where to go for big pike that is reasonably close given my boat. I do not mind a drive, but I know how conditions can get on big water.  I also plan to go to Trout Lake (reason for bringing the small boat) If anyone has tips on Trout Lake for Pike.  Thanks and #tightlines!

      Heading up to chain for a couple weeks.  Need some general info on the panfish bite.  They still shallow?  Got a couple grandkids coming up and any info sent on the panfish action will be appreciated.  Thanks   Ray guy

      Maybe see if you slide the winch back on the tongue an inch or two. The roller needs to contact the boat to keep it from bouncing. Should check to make sure the rear bunk rollers line up with the rear transom for stability.  
    • gunner55
      Every rig we've owned the roller is above the eye & snug to the boat when it's loaded.

      I looked at my rig yesterday . It is a matched boat/trailer package from Lund . My roller is above the eye but snug onto the bow , probably an inch maybe more, higher than yours.
