Robbed During The Twins Game!

4 posts in this topic

I decided to go to the Twins game on Thursday afternoon and parked in one of the open air parking lots that was unattended. My normal parking ramp was full. After the game I got back to my truck to find out it had been opened and most of my stuff had been stolen.

They took my laptop, GPS, a Fishing Rod and Reel combo, A Tacklebox, case full of CD's, sunglasses, brand new Softball glove, even the change in my center console!

I'm just mentioning this as a warning to either not bring anything valuable or hide it very well if you plan to go to the game. Sounds like laptops are a HOT item for criminals to take.

I figure I lost over $2000 in stuff! Just be careful next time you go to the game.

They decided to be nice and leave my golf clubs, disc golf discs, and they missed a plano plastic box FULL of my panfish ice jigs worth anywhere from $200 - $400

i usually take stuff out before i go or hide anything of value before locking and heading in. One item might not be enough to compell someone to break in, but multiple things suddenly makes it all worthwhile to them. Hopefully insurance can cover some of your loss, although some things on the laptop you may not be replaceable.

Most of the stuff was well hidden. I had gone fishing the night before and forgot the rod and tacklebox were in the back of my truck. So I put them inside but the rod was clearly visible. Unfortunately I didn't realize how much stuff I actually had in there. Really starts to add up quickly!

    •   Sounds like the House of Reps. who pulled their AHCA (Ryan/Trump  Care) so when their fellow Rep. voted it down every one would know who was against or for it. Now none of them have to explain how they voted, the same as how some on here weasel out of explaining their statements, by reverting to name calling.
    • caught my first fish with a lamprey on it and also got a 35 inch pike on a salamander. 
         
    •   Bafflegab! Hot darn! I like that! Is that like my psychobabble, aka Mayospeak , or to quote Thurber, Pussgrapple or even Cussgravy? I haveta remember that!  "Bafflegab found in this one"?! Go look on the health thread, where yer buddy juicedup gets yammering away at you! ! Now THERE's some  real balderdash and twaddle! Yes, some good, informative threads used to exist here! Once in awhile, you can even run across one! Gotta look hard! 
    • The bite was on last week. With 4 guys we caught over 700 fish in 3.5 days.  And I don't care if anyone believes me or not.  Actually 700 is probably a conservative estimate because we had to have averaged at least 50 fish per person per day and it was probably much more than that.  Yes some of them were 10" saugers but there were many 16 to 20"+ walleye and the crappie size was the nicest I've seen in 4 years with no keepers under 12" and several 13-14" with 2 at 15.25".  All of the pavement pounding and scouting this winter and last week really paid off on this trip!  This is the most hardcore group of guys I fish with and they really know how to put the smackdown on these fish.   
    •   If you guys need fishing advice just ask. I've never had a problem sharing. 
    • Any time I have ever tried that it creates havoc with the sonar until it floats back up the hole and is removed but if anyone has a fix for this let me know.
    • Nonetheless there are some forums here which actually have active informative discussions without all of the bafflegab found in this one. 
    • Great pictures by all that have shared thus far!    Three of my best or my favorites anyway...        
    • I was out and about wetland areas this weekend and saw lots of waterfowl.  Many trumpeter swans, high flying tundra swans, gadwalls, shovelers, a few wood ducks, ring necks, hooded mergansers, , a pair of goldeneyes, and a loon.  I also saw many sandhill cranes.
