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.

      Good bite in the East end this weekend.  No big ones but lots of eater size walleyes coming to the boat.  Even got a bonus chewy, gave my seven year old all he could handle!

      WOW!!!

      Here a picture taken by Becky Nelson from Intl Falls facing north towards Fort Frances around 8pm...

      Saturday we hit the South Shore in 30-60' for water.  Multiple hits and releases off the boards, dipseys, and downriggers but no hookups. Went something like 1 for 10 with a nice 29" walleye taken off a pink Husky Jerk and 3 oz of lead on board line.  Marked quite a few fish throughout that depth.

      The pictures were from Amazon, if you can't find it locally.   Jann's Netcraft has a lot of that stuff also. Comes in a variety of thicknesses/strengths.   Some folks use crimped sleeves especially with the thicker stuff.

      Yup!  14 will get cut, as will 20 from time to time.  I’ve run enough different fluorocarbon to get to the conclusion 20 lb is the best combination of fish ability and pike protection for the gear I use.  Anything less and the bite offs are easy.  Anything more and the stiffness kills the action too much and is hard to tie.   I’ll be looking for those leader materials you posted though.  I need something like that for a couple muskie rigs I want to experiment with.

      Vermilion is in low 70's
    • delcecchi
      A decent pike will bite through 20 pound flouro in a heatbeat.  Certtainly 14 pound like happened to me yesterday....

      Still a good bite on the rocks, just fewer humps having fish. Takes some searching to find a group. However, the fish still on the rocks are biters...and some big ones. I've been spending part of each day pulling cranks with lead core or flat lining and that is putting lots of fish in the boat also. I'm not seeing the huge schools in the mud anymore, just pods here and there but very fishable. Also catching some jigging. The water is amazingly cool still...below 70 every morning off the south shore. It has been a while since so many fish have been hanging within a few miles of the south shore. Boats are scattered over a huge area from around 28 feet and out. Sure nice not having to make long runs all the time. Fall fishing could be terrific this year with all the fish still on the south side. Forgot to mention the lack of algae blooms. Can't remember a year without major blooms by mid August. Good luck
