vandalism


Recommended Posts

Well,this weekend the inevitable happened. My fish house got vandalized, along with at least 10 others on Lake Sylvia/Twin. Person on a snowmobile with an axe. Had they taken the time to look in the window they would have seen that there was nothing to take. Just busted up my door and window for no reason. I suppose that I should be happy that they didnt trash the whole house. Does a person really have to take everything out of the house and leave the door open to avoid this? How does one go about leaving a vented heater in the house, or battery for lights? Do they still hang horse thieves? And if so could we do the same with fish house molesters....this whole situation has really fouled my mood. Wouldnt even use the perm if it wasnt for my two little kids and wife who really enjoy the comfort of a hard house. am I going to have to relagate the hard house to shore to only be used as a "boat house". Argh!!!!!

I fish, therefore I am.

It makes me sick when I hear things like that.

Don't let it enjoy your passion for fishing.
Glad to hear you are getting the family involved in this great sport.

Hopefully, these idiots will get caught soon.

(I also posted this in Farley's topic):

"Take note when these break-ins occurred (i.e; weeknight, Sunday night, weekday morning, etc.) if you can. Then, if you have the time, go out to your houses...and wait for 'em.
Some guys did this on Mille Lacs (a few years ago), when they figured a pattern to some break-ins. They surprised the bandits, when they opened the door to a dark fishhouse. The guys surprised the thieves with a shotgun in the face (which I do not recommend!)...made them squeal like babies and confess to the whereabouts of all their lost possessions, while waiting for the police. Rather violent and dangerous but extremely effective! These idiots have no respect, whatsoever, for other people's hard-earned property, and take issue with people enjoying themselves and expecting a little respect and decency...I too, am sick of this crap." -- Andy

Have a neighbor that has a brother that lives on Sugar in that neck of the woods. He was telling me that he was at his brothers fishing and playing a little poker on Sat. They decided to go up to the house for a bite to eat pulled up there gear and left the lantern going. Came back down to the house and found 2 chisle holes in the door. Looked like the fools took off pretty quick when light poured out of the holes they put in the house. They followed the tracks straight to the public landing and lost them.

      You could do Isanti to St. Francis also.  About mid way is Anderson Park that has a small sandy access.  Anderson Park to St. Francis had fewer but some bigger fish while Isanti to Anderson Park had better numbers and not as many big fish.   All upstream from Isanti to the access on Hwy 95 can be hit or miss but if you hit it, it can be good.   Up to 16’s is fairly common bit there are enough 16-20’s to not be shocked if you get one or more.   I’d never admit to this while I lived there. 😉

      Some pressure but nothing like lake fishing

      Hey thanks guys, I appreciate your input. It sounds like this float might be best to put off a year when the water is up a little higher. I'll check the gage next summer and see how it looks. I was hoping to get into some 18 to 20" fish (aren't we all), so maybe they will have moved back in there by then.   Does the stretch south of St. Francis get very much pressure on it? I'll have to give it a look.

      Little more narrow up there, if I were to do it, I'd float St Francis to Andover. Shallow yes but it's a good stretch to fish

      I fished it further south near Milaca/Princeton a couple times in late July.  It was OK then but dropping.  The second time we definitely bumped more rocks and grounded out in a couple riffles.  I use a 10 foot jon boat that can float through a couple inches of water.  We caught 15-20 smallmouth both times, but nothing over 16 inches.  I think the drought last year sent the bigger fish out of there.  It may take a few years to recover.   You can check the flow on the DNR website.  There is a live gauge right in Onamia.  Anything below 11 feet is too low for me.   https://www.dnr.state.mn.us/waters/csg/site.html?id=21018002

      Water is really low. It’s definitely doable, but there will be a lot of spots you’ll have to get out and pull. Fallen trees in low water might be your biggest obstacle. Should be plenty of smallies to catch. They’ll be concentrated in any deep pools you come across.

      Lol he broke a muskie drought that had started in 2006.  16 years without a legal muskie!

      Well you're are! 😆 Step 4 Your satirical essays should be humorous.

      Not too long ago, I found synthesis paper topics here. I may be exaggerating, but this is one of the best topic ideas sites I have found in the last few years.

      Satirical essays employ humor, hyperbole, irony and irony to poke fun at a subject. These essays are often directed at celebrities, politicians and current events. Although satirical essays are intended to entertain, the writer of satire often seeks out useful, relevant, and eye-opening information. You can learn how to write satirically by understanding the styles and purpose of your content.   Step 1 Pick a topic. You should choose the  satirical essay topics that is absurd or ironic. Your goal is to make your subject absurd, much like a caricature artist who exaggerates his subject's facial features. To get ideas, you might look at political cartoons in Sunday's paper.   Step 2 Hyperbole can be used to prove your point. Hyperbole can be used to exaggerate facts. However, it does not mean lying. It is important to keep to the facts but to use hyperbole to emphasize the absurdity of them. One example of this might be "Andy Garbo consumes a lot of coffee each year to keep his Folgers stock profitable." Although this is obviously hyperbole, it's meant to convey an exaggerated point regarding Andy.   Step 3 To present your ideas, use irony. Irony refers to the use of words and phrases to express something that is not what you really mean or an incongruity between what the person expects and actually happens. Irony can be expressed as "He's kind enough steal from the poor to help his pocketbook." This becomes ironic when the word "kind enough" is used. Because of its sarcastic tone, irony makes a great tool for satirical essays.   Step 4 Your satirical essays should be humorous. While not all satire can be funny, pointing out the absurdities of your topic can help you to get people to think differently or make your point faster. Humor is a great way to get people to respond quicker, especially if you make them see the absurdity in the same way as you.   Learn more at: https://proessays.net/blog/40-witty-topics-for-a-satirical-essay
