Last Thusrday I was robbed from my pickup while out fishing with my girlfriend on Fish lake north of Fergus. My cd Player, GPS, and my binoculars were stolen from my truck. I am guessing it was a real fast jerk and run they didnt even grab the remote for the cd player. My guess is that they had it planned out, I think they followed me in wathed me leave in the boat and started snatching. It would be pretty simple to do to a fisherman. I would like to have just caught the m#$%^&^&&^^&&* myself. I just wanted to give you all fair warning! be careful guys and gals

hmmmm

About a week and a half ago I was on the same lake in the evening. Not only did I catch no fish, when I got to the access my vehicle had been gone thru. I was lucky as I had nothing in there. Still felt violated.

Geez, sounds like a pattern of theft at that access. That's too bad. I would have never thought it was an issue around these parts. mad.gif

Razor blades taped under the stereo, and carefully placed push pins work well:) Then go to nearby hospital to see who got stiches that day:)

While having someone get all bloody while trying to take your stuff is tempting, I'd fear getting sued by te lowlife(s).

Yeah...and the blood stains all over the carpet and seats...

That could cause problems if you're ever stopped by teh cops (or trying to cross the border into Canada). "'Scuse me, son...are those blood stains all over the front of your car?"

The Meth problem in the county is growing and the break ins are part of that issue. Isanti county is another prime example of that. Check the Isanti County News police report. Theft, break in repeated over and over again. Sigh. I was thinking of hitting the area this weekend but now I don't know if I want to worry about my truck on Norway, Fish or Orwell above the dam.

A real bummer. Was the truck locked? I have installed an electronic shrill whistle to my truck that is turned on and shut off with a small remote. It also has a red light that comes on when in the operate mode. The light acts as a deterrant when it is dark. The shrill whistle acts as a deterrant when a door is opened. A warning sign is attached to each door window. Nothing is fool proof but the more difficult you make it for the break-in the more reluctant a would be burglar will think twice about rifling your property.

I would certainly talk with the local authorities about the situation. They do know how to spot people that dont belong in certain areas. They may not be caught but they will be warned. Hopefully to give up their evil ways.

i take my dogs to a quite landing in a county park on the mississippi north of St. Cloud to swim. There is very little landing traffic and it is close to home so it is a good place to do some water retieves. Anyway, on any given day, cars come in fast, see me, circle around and leave. Are they casing the place? What else could they be doing? if I spend a half hour it happened once or twice everytime.

We are also going to have to work with the police. To do that we need to use the same (legal) terminolgy they do. "ROBBED" means a theft in which force or threat of force against a person was used as in a "stick up". It's usually just a "theft" if the stolen iten was just picked up like in a shoplifting. If the theft involves a "break-in" then it's a "burglary" or a "B&E" (breaking & entering). As in " they B&Ed my truck at the landing ".

There are a lot of things we can do to help the police catch these guys. The chances are they won't without our help.

      Those campsites are right across the water from us. Seem pretty well protected and I haven't heard of challenging over there. Holiday weekends they fill up very fast

      My son camped on Hinsdale with his aluminum runabout. Nice site but walking across the hull parked on uneven ground he separated a couple of the rivets.

      Thanks "Skunked Again!" I searched old posts and it sounds like my fiberglass boat might not be the best rig for Hinsdale. Still, would appreciate more advice/input.

      I don't know about either of them, but welcome to the forum.
    • SkunkedAgain
      I destroyed my main propeller saving a neighbors dock section from ramming my other neighbor's dock. Definitely watch out for each other out there.   Raven77 - on the plus side of the high water, the floating swim platform that you sold me the other year was able to just float off of the rocks that I had beached it on. No need to do any heavy lifting this season! I'm glad that I tied it to a tree as usual.

      On the south end...  A great 2022 MN Fishing Opener for most anglers.  The walleyes and saugers are hungry and the bite is on!  Good numbers of fish caught. Lots of big fish amongst the eaters.  Most anglers were vertically jigging in 6' - 20'.  Anchor up and jig over the side of the boat.  A nice mix of sizes.   The water is a bit dirty on the east portion of the south shore due to runoff from the rivers.  A bright jig with a minnow is the most productive. Reports were also good from the west portion of the south shore.  A bit cleaner water and equally good bite.  Lots of big fish mixed in with eaters.  Some anglers fishing on structure or on the edge of structure where available. On the Rainy River...   A lot of walleyes in the river as predicted, but the current is ripping and the water is a bit dirty.  Those who found slack water often found fish.  The norm was 6' - 15' with a bright jig and minnow.   Typical spots in the main channel were tough to fish due to high current.  The fast moving water helped to congregate fish.  Once you found them, there were normally good numbers. Sturgeon fishing is closed until July 1st.  July 1 - Sep 30 is a sturgeon keep season with one fish per calendar year 45" - 50" or over 75". Up at the NW Angle...  A great jig bite up at the Angle for the opener.  Most fish were caught in 6' - 20' adjacent shoreline structure, neckdown areas and on some shallow flats. Again, a jig and minnow was by far the most common method vertically jigged below the boat.  With cold water, a subtle presentation.  Both fatheads and frozen shiners worked well. Various ways to travel to the Angle. 1.  Drive through Canada to the Angle  (must be vaccinated, no covid test required) 2.  LOW Passenger Service (charter boat service across the lake avoiding customs)  3.  Lake Country Air.(fly from various Midwest locations to LOW and NW Angle) 4.  Take your own boat.  (Safety first, this is a 40 mile ride over big water)

      Greetings all! Our group (two boats/five guys) is looking at fishing/camping trip based at Hinsdale Island Campground or Wake 'Em Up Bay Campground in about 3 weeks.  Can anyone advise about Hinsdale, especially the shoreline for landing boats? (Is it sandy or rocky? Mostly protected?) We're also wondering how busy both campgrounds are? We've stayed at Wake Em Up,  but that was 6-8 years ago and it was mostly empty...just the host and 2-3 others. Nowadays, do either or both fill up on June weekends? (We'd probably arrive on a Saturday, stay most of the week.) Of course, we also welcome suggestions for walleye techniques, depths, etc. We tend to fish smallies during the day and chase eyes in the evening.  Thanks in advance for your help!

      Saturday we got beat up by the wind all day long driving around to the usual spots and didn't catch a thing.  Towards the evening we went in shallow and ended up catching 7 keepers in 6ft of water on slip bobbers.
    • MikeG3Boat
      I didn’t have any luck, but I heard others and saw people catch fish. 
    • CigarGuy
      Nice job Bob! Fishing off the neighbors dock sucked for us. My gang is coming up Thursday night till Monday, this will be our opener, we'll hit it hard. It's a bummer my dock is mostly under water and the lift isn't in. Thanks to the neighbor around the corner for letting us park on shore at there place next weekend.
