Hey punk, you forgot something

Ok, so this will be a venting and not really a report. I had my ice auger stolen in the parking lot of WalMart today. Yep, I'm ticked. I do understand that I'm too trusting (stupid) when it comes to leaving things is my truck. Guess with the price of heating the home this winter, I may be done ice fishing for the year. Oh, by the way, if you're reading this and you took my auger, call me. I have the extension and cover for the blades in my garage. You will need them more than I do now.

If it was me, I would tell him to start it up and stick in the part that Randy Moss showed the Green Bay fans Sunday. mad.gifmad.gif

Just once I'd like to catch somebody pissing with somebody elses stuff and catch them by surprise. I'd take out all the penned up frustration I have over all the crap I've had pissed with. I've had two doors ripped off my fish houses, I never have anything in there so I just quit locking the door. Sometimes I've got my auger in my pickup at work, I should probably watch that.

WalMart said I had to call the police and their security department would work with the police. I reported it and the officer went inside. I had to go back to work, but he called an hour later and said they have the video where a car pulls up to my Ranger and pulls the auger from it. (Small station wagon,dark in color possibly blue or green, maybe a Ford Escort with the front license plate not centered. The guy goes into the store but they don't get a good enough shot of him to really ID him.) The officer called last night and said that is very little to go on. He suggested I call around to pawn shops and contact my insurance company. So, at this point, it doesn't look good for recovery, but who knows. He may call, with the cold coming this week, he may need that auger extension!

To bad a guy couldn't get a snap shot of the vehicle by your truck,from the vid., then put it on a flyer with some other info. and hang them all around town, plus when out on the lake, hand them out to some folks out fishing.

Can you try getting a copy of the tape? I would bring it to your favorite computer geek and see if he or she can enhance it and try to get a number.

Today, any HS kid can do it.

No, WalMart will only let the police department view the tapes. I think the police probably have better things to do than run errands for me. But, hey, as long as I'm here can I whine some more? Found out today that I have a $500 decuctable on my insurance. Not much good for a $450 auger. And, as if I need more to complain about, My Big Buddy heater, like everyone else's, doesn't work properly. I went to L&M Fleet to see what could be done. They said Mr. Heater has acknowledged a problem and had given them an 800 number for us to call and make arrangements to send it in for repairs. Called the number and the lady informs me that as of Monday they are no longer taking them. They have found a bigger problem that makes them dangerous to use. If you have one, you should not use it until they figure out what to do next. They are working with some government agency deciding whether they can fix the things or if they should be totally recalled. If you have one of these things, you should call the 800 number. They will be putting notices in the paper and on the news but if you call them, they will get some information from you and contact you personally. The decision will be made about February 1st. It's ok that my new fangled, state of the art, EXPENSIVE, heater is a paper weight cause I can't drill any holes anyway!

The number for Mr Heater is 1-800-251-0001.

First, it is the "Big Buddy" only. Model numberMH18B. It won't run on high heat. It has something to do with the gas pressure messed up and gas not being lit but coming out of the unit when running. Gotta admit, I was in a bit of a daze (thinking,"hummmm, just another $150.00 well spent on my part) while she's explaining this to me. Best to call if you have one of these.

I had one of these as well, but recieved it broken from Cabelas and returned it a couple days before this mess came about, what luck!!! I heard that when run on high, the gas lines would freeze and not let the gas burn and ultimately leak out elswhere. I've also heard that the pilot light always went out. Maybe I'll wait and get one in a year or two after they fix the kinks.

      Saturday Norwegian Bay was 50-51 degrees. After the cold wind the sun showed up and baked it all day Sunday. By Monday afternoon Temps were around 62 with Black Bay reaching 65-66.  We left Tuesday Morning so I'm sure the fishing is suddenly on fire. I'm surprised that when I walk down the seafood aisle in the grocery store that the shelves don't suddenly go bare.

      I upgraded my electronics this year to a Humminbird Helix 10. I love it so far with the exception of not being able to split the screen into 4 separate screens. The max that you can do is 3. I would really like to be able to have the map, sonar, down imaging, and side imaging on the screen at the same time while trolling. I emailed tech support and they said it's not something that is an option at this time. Right now when I'm fishing I switch back and forth between map, sonar, and DI and sonar, DI, and SI. Is there anyone else that thinks this should be an option? I don't know see why you can't customize the screen to show whichever features you prefer instead of only using the preloaded options that Humminbird decided on. I have thought about emailing the company weekly asking if they have that ability yet but wanted to see if anyone else thinks it should be an option.

      Awesome fish. Still some freak crappies in the vermillion river, but don't know if 5 lbs has been approached since.  Not world record news but North Dakota had a state record walleye caught recently. 15lb 13oz. Broke record that stood since 1959. Still a few pounds off Minnesota record 😏

      It clears like that every spring. Nice catch. Any size to the striper?
    • Mitch K
      The water in Cannon lake is the clearest I've ever seen it. You can see the bottom in 5ft easily. Caught a few perch and a striped bass. Also saw some big bass around the fishing pier by the beach.

      Dang ,,, Another nice day to be out on the water on Fish Lake  ,,, Too bad the fish didn't think it was nice enough to eat what we offered !! Might have to switch bodies of water!!!
    • mrpike1973
      Lake Sylvia is great for bass also lake Francis near Kimball is good too a little smaller but great action! The Mississippi sounds fun I should try it myself.

      Update.  Minnesota American Legion and other volunteers succeeded Thursday, May 17, 2018, in cutting the giant North Long Lake bog into three sections. The bog came to rest on the beach of an American Legion camp. The plan is to move the middle section to open up the beach, then relocate the other two back to the bog’s original position on the lake north of Brainerd, Minn. (Forum News Service)
