Geez...Isn't there any way we can catch the SOB's? Does anyone know if the police in the area are working on getting these guys?

There must be some way we can network with the resorts and the police to put a sting on whoever is doing this.

Leave the door unlocked and take your stuff home. I know its a pain, but its the only way. Most of these punks dont bother with the heaters. If any of you guys have had anything stolen, check with both pawn shops on the lake. Onamia and Garrison.

They have all been working to stop this stuff. I know that some kids (17&18) have been caught and turned over to sheriffs on the southwest side, BUT the system gives them a slap on the wrist and lets the go. They can't do much more with such crimes.

This year is not totally unusal in the amount being reported except that without significant snow to restrict there movement around the lake, they can drive on at one spot, find it ripe, do there deed and leave via some other point. Barring night vision equipment and a helicopter overhead, its pretty tough to catch them. The case I know of someone saw some suspicious vehicle movements, pretended to leave the lake only to have parked out of the way with lights off and watched. When they saw the breakin, they called the sheriff and directed them to the house the kids went back to.

Bottom line, if anything is going to happen to slow the tide, it will have to be all of us being watchful when out there. And if you need to be certian you don't lose anything? Take it with you. Bummer, but reality.

I hope thier mommy's kissed them goodbye, because if someone catches them in the act....they might have themselves an accident. Pointer, the ol' man is headed up there this weekend, I hope everything is okay. Sorry to hear about that. Someone is gonna lose a hand when they are caught.

IMHO, this is probably not locals, my guess would be some city *****s with no jobs and no life.

Maybe if you could get dropped off by one of your buddies and stay in your house over night and have all the lights off. Just wait for someone to start ripping on the door and boom their caught in the act.
Maybe some night vision binoculars would work good also then you could maybe see something suspicious out on the lake.
But that is just if your bord and have lots of time on your hands or if you want to stay overnight in the fish house.
That was just my little ponder of the moment. grin.gif

The problem with that Stunner is, that now your focus has been altered. You go up there to fish and have fun. Don't let someone else dictate your actions.
This is not to say that when thse "kids" are breaking into our house, they won't come face to face with the flat side of a shovel!

Just be responsible for your personal things. Don't "invite" someone to steal your property, just as you shouldn't leave your car running, while you run into the store! Take your valuables with you and lock up your house...

ACKOTZ, I'm shocked that you would advocate hitting some poor young man with the flat of a shovel. The edge of the shovel is much more efficent. Then finish with an ice chisel.

The problem(s) is easy access on and around the lake, little or no chanch of getting caught, and a market for the stolen goods.
I disagree that it is "city kids". Not many city kids fish, (or ICE fish), and they're not apt to make a midnight road trip to the tundra where they would stick out like sore thumbs to steal items that have no value to other "city kids". Area pawn shops should be checked out and anyone that has a 'good deal' should be a suspect. I think the cops are only going to get involved if there is a personal injury or if they just happen to stop someone on another violation and notice they have a truck full of augers, generators etc.

We're fishing in 32ft lot of small fish just need to keep the hook away from them several good fish still coming thru. A few slot fish up to 26 1/2 inches walleyes 15 to 17 saugers 14 to 16 lot of water under the snow in spots.

      Thanks for the report.  I didn’t hear any news from my buddy’s last trip up there so I assumed it was bad.  I texted and asked; yup it was bad.  He’s finally burned out for the ice season after the back to back bad trips and putting his gear away.     One of his buddies did an 8 man/5 day trip for lakers in another part of Ontario.  8 fish total.   I agree, it can get better before the end though if a couple things work out weather wise.

      I say that if this gets passed, those lakes are on their own, no stocking, nothing supported by the dnr, if they want their lake all to themselves, they can support it.

      Mar 19, 2019 Wright County AIS public meeting recap:   The Wright County passed the AIS ordinance with a 3 to 2 vote. Now it is entirely up to the DNR commissioner to approve it. The Wright County commissioners said that if the DNR does not approve it by April 15th, the whole proposal is dead for good.   Here are some more details from the meeting. There were about 50 people attending, 99% lake shore owners. They all applauded the proposed ordinance (except for the self-certification part). One after another they spoke about how much trouble their lake is in and how much it has cost them to keep AIS at bay. They did a great job of presenting “the sky is falling” to the county commissioners (I always find it interesting that there is no mention of restrictions on lake shore owners using lawn fertilizer that turns the lakes into a green slimy mess. Seems to me that would be a no brainer if you really cared about the lake). Most made a point that they are not trying to privatize their lake and are offended when they hear that. On the other hand, not once did anyone mention that we need to come up with a better way that does not restrict access. Only one lone fisherman addressed the council and said that he bypassed the three test lakes last year and will bypass the additional lakes if this passes, too much hassle. Hmm, funny how that works. Imagine if this catches on and all the lakes are restricted, sell the boat I guess. There was also mention of a need for an exit inspection process. Not sure what that means, but didn’t sound like it would be in lieu of the proposed inspections and you may end up having to get inspected before and after you go to the lake.   Also of interest, the commissioners said they have received many inquiries from lake associations around the state and there were several other lake association representatives at the meeting to observe and see how they could implement this same strategy. So Wright County will be the test case for every county in the state to run with this. What a disastrous precedent. Not to mention the regulations and tags would be different for every county, making it cumbersome and impractical. The self-certification will have a cost of $10 to $40, so multiply that by how many counties you fish.   What you can do if you want to stop this from happening: The entire fate of this proposal now rest on the DNR. The Wright County commissioners will meet with the DNR commissioner on Mar 21. If the DNR does not approve the plan by April 15, it will be dead. Send your concerns to these DNR contacts right away so that they receive it before they meet with the Wright County people.   [email protected] [email protected] [email protected] [email protected] [email protected]     PS,  you can read the emails send to Wright County on this link. Notice how organized the lake associations are with their form letter that you just sign and send. In particular, notice the one from the Clearwater association #34 on the page (see where this is heading?). http://www.co.wright.mn.us/AgendaCenter/ViewFile/Item/6489?fileID=13556

      I just checked the Two Harbors webcam, and it’s still frozen. However, the ice cutter was in the background carving out the shipping lanes. Personally, I think the ice season on the big pond is over!
