help lost tackle on shore!

Recommended Posts

I know there was a few of you out on the shore today. I lost my black "purse"...my looper bag with most of my shore tackle either at the knife or stewart today around 9:00. I'm pretty sure I put it on top of the car before leaving the knife and heading to the stewart. I also think if that is where I went wrong the two guys in the red car leaving behind us picked it up. It was a small soft sided black purse-sized bag with a bunch of homemade bobbers, the hottest bugs, and various tools of the trade. Glad it was today though as I wasn't planning anymore trips to the shore with the brule opening next weekend. Still a bum deal. I will offer a small cash reward for it's return but I'm pretty sure it's found a new home. Figured I'd see if anyone spotted it though. Hope the guys behind me use the site and have the heart to shoot me an e-mail.

Sorry to hear that, Matt. I almost ran into you today. I wandered my way so far from Ely looking for wildlife today I actually ended up at Agate Bay in Two Harbors, shooting birds and anglers on the breakwall. A few guys with long rods and looper bugs under bobbers, and one guy with a fly rod. I almost headed to the Stewart before leaving for Ely, but didn't. Good luck getting your tackle. I know how that can be. frown.gif

Hey way to go deathroe....

Last winter my gas auger fell out of my portable out in the middle of lake mille lacs on a SATURDAY!! I posted that evening and recieved a call the next morning at 9am from the gentlemen who picked it up shortly after i lost it. Said he'd check out FM to see if a member had lost it and wouldn't you know it.....Needless to say i bought him lunch and a few beers. This really is a great site. Congrats on your find. grin.gif

Good job Deathroe! Matt keep your "man purse" on your waste or shoulder. Maybe string it through the arms of your jacket like mommy used to do your mittens? wink.gifgrin.gif

      Thanks Cliff for the update, and thanks Brett for the info too!

      You can fish a little meat out of the ones with really big claws. Tails are easy once you get the hang of it. Meat pops right out then just pull the intestine(?) and you're good to go.  I'd rather people use fish guts as crawfish bait rather than throwing them in the woods for my dog to find

      You can also get the ArcGIS app to access the county files on your mobile or download the .kmz files on the county site to use in Google Earth. Either way very useful.

      Well most people use a fish head or two in the trap as bait.  Any type of raw  meat will probably work well. No need to purge them as they are coming out of clean water. Just boil the whole crawdad in salt water or better yet in a Cajun mix! The tails are about the only part worth messing with. Cliff

      I live on Little Cormorant Lake, I believe sometime next week that it will be open.  The lakes out there are changing fast!

      we got a lot snow down in the twin cities than up north and temps are a lot higher than it was in 2013.   I think we will have enough open water to fish the opener.   No one needs to cancel!  I HOPE any way
    • meerkat
      what do you use for bait?  I heard you can't use left over fish guts.   do you have to soak them?  sorry not sure what that process is called.
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      meerkat, Many people eat the rusties. Very tasty but like walleye wings it takes a lot for a meal! Cliff

      I just got an e-mail from Brent Flatten in the Tower Fisheries Office stating that they hope to get the Dock in by Monday if the river clears of ice. Will set the trap nets on Tuesday and the first net lift will be on Wednesday. They may even collect eggs Wednesday if there are enough ripe females. Very good news! Thanks for your update Brent!

      I would imagine the man made pepin connected to the sippi is open not the actual lake pepin?
