fish house break in on ottertail

Recommended Posts

walleye_jigger

I heard tonight that there was some fish house break-in's. I haven't been able to check my house yet, but I will this weekend. What kind of people do these things. They must be pretty poor or jealous of what other people are able to afford. Just wondering if anybody else has heard if this has happened.

I heard that the break-ins are up to a total of 20 houses now. I talked to a few gentleman that had there houses broke into, these people have not been stealing anything, just breaking everything. They busted up his Vexilar then snapped all his jigging rods then broke out the windows. But they did not steal anything. I dont know but I believe that they are kids... I guess they are traveling by four-wheelers? I just hope that over Christmas break it does not get worse... Some how we need to catch these people and use them for an example. I mean throw the book them. I just dont understand why they find it neccessary to do this.. I put mine under insurance just in case..

That in my mind is worse then stealing it. At least if they would steal it somebody would be using it. But to just break everthing, that's totally uncalled for. Was this just one night that this happened, or is it occuring again and again?

I know many people are now just leaving their houses unlocked, and taking everything out when they leave. Now when those rat punks come, it isn't any fun.

The way I see it is if they are in my house there on my property and If I ever caught those little punks in my house me and my friend Louisville Slugger would have our way with them. I don't care how old they are. Sometimes a good old *** kicking is the only thing those punks understand. You leave your house unguarded trusting the other fisherman and this sort of thing happens. (Horrible) Well I hope they catch them and throw the book at them hard and make them replace everything.
We fisherman need to look out for each others fish houses and watch odd behavior going on around others houses even if you have no idea who's ice house your checking out. I know I would really appriciate it if someone went over and stopped some punks from vandelizeing my house. Well good luck getting them.

FISH AWAY

A little upbeat note for you folks that had your houses broke into. I had my house out on Swan Lake 2 years ago, got a phone call that my house had been broke into. They broke down the door to get in and stripped it clean, close to $1,000. in damage and missing items, found out that they ended up ripping portibles open and breaking into many others also. One night a gentleman was fishing when a guy and gail came to his fishhouse asked how the fishing was then left on a snowmoblie, he heard the sled stop, then like a ripping sound, called the cops who came out and nabbed them.They had to have destroyed and taken over $10,000.00 worth of property. I got everything replaced and money to fix fish house. They went to court, only thing is they were kids got some community service and had to pay for everything, witch I am sure they are still working on. I received a check from them a year latter. Thing is these people are stupid and will come back because they think they can get away with it. Keep your eye and ears open and they will get caught. Good Fishing.

Don't kids read books or even play video games anymore. I am guessing sooner or later they will be caught. It makes it hard to enjoy something you love to do when you have to worry about some punks damaging your property.

Some guys did leave their house open, but the vandals still destroyed the inside and broke the stove...

Too bad its not legal to boobie trap your house when your not there. Do something like when the door opens they get a dousing of paint that just wont wash off easily. I think the paint would be alot more humane than what I was considering...Might make identifying them alot easier! Just a thought.....Paul

Boy this would have really ticked me off. We left ours out there saturday night with our stuff in there and i was worried something like this might happen. But there were a few houses that had guys in all nite there werent to far away. Not real sure i could control myself if I ever caught someone break into mine or someone elses house!

Paul,
Me and a friend were thinking the same thing. All you would need is one of those deer hunting cameras that mount on a tree with motion sensors on the wall opposite of the door or on top of the house were your door is so it takes pictures of whoever comes by or breaks in. You would need to build a strong plexy glass box & mount it were they wouldn't be able to steel it. Maybe just even put it on a tall sturdy pole on top of the house they can't reach or break down.
Could also have a motion sensor set up like a vehicle has were a horn goes off and you would have a red cop car cherry like light atop of your house telling other fisherman somethings going down.
Just some ideas we were thinking of. Need to do something. They are just going to keep doing it unless we fisherman figure out some security.
The only other security system I was thinking of was a electrical shock as soon as you touch the door that would nock the robbers right on there asses. That might teach them a lesson. Probably get myself accidentally though instead so that one isen't the greatest idea.

A few years back I had my house broke into on a lake here north of the cities, They cleaned me out along with 20 or so other houses. My ins. company is from down south so to their amazement when I spoke of $250.00 for auger, $100 stove plus $500-700 in fishing equipment, poles skimmers locator etc they were a lil shocked, but still paid it. # weeks later I lost my keys and brought a bolt cutter with and a new lock, Well some watchfull eye called me in and with in 10 minutes I had the DNR pounding on the door. from a report of a break in.. I laughed and sent him on his way with a big thanks for the quick response..

      I haven't done it too much to this point, still trying to find my way around. All I have done so far is go from my place at Wabanica Bay to Pitt and then took the Pitt grade 20 miles in or so.  I've also covered all of the dirt roads around there.

      You bet!  And I know it! 😁

      I dislike posting a question here, but after fishing this lake since ice out at least once a week I'm struggling to find the Crappie. Have only caught one and it was spawned out. Checked all my favorite spring spots and found nothing. Has anyone else experienced similar issues? Lots of gills and more largemouth than ever, but no crappies. 
    • gimruis
      Your lucky you got use of yours so quickly.  Mine literally didn't get used for about 12 years even though I brought it with every time I went after big fish.
    • Wanderer
      Well, we netted a half dozen fish with the new net and I think I like it.  The biggest was a 45 and everything worked out real nice. Bringing the fish in was easy and then laying the net handle across the gun wale of the boat was enough to keep the fish and bag in the water and in pretty straight shape to work with.  Even with my 40 that needed the hooks cut off, the fish was completely in the water the whole time.  The only time any were out of the water was for a quick measure and photos.  No twisted gnarled mesh to deal with for the most part either. It proved to be worth the space!

      Beautiful day to be on the water, but such a struggle catching fish.  Marking a lot of fish and just as many bait balls or some other underwater clouds that the game fish were keying in on.  Ended up C&R a lot of really plump Sunnies ( thinking they haven't spawned yet?),  2 Northerns, several pieces of timber, 2 slot Walleyes, and a great sunburn. All within 12 hrs of fishing.

      I'll try to make it. Does 8 am work? Might go for other species too for fun.

      Another good a.m bite for me and my wife today , ( Thurs ) on Big bay . Nice fish again . Our limit of keeps , also put two back . 8:00 - noon. . . .  Hey Cliff , I’m gonna try to send you a p m .
    • Bigfatbert
      Was in Big Bay once again today and saw a few more Mayfly today than Tuesday . I agree things are just kinda getting going with the hatch , and also believe that these bugs will last until well after the 4th of July . With that being said , I also believe that fishing should hold up for awhile until the fish become so gorged out that things could come to a screeching halt later into this whole bug period .
