Another Fisherman Cleaned Out

2 posts in this topic

Just trying to help someone out a bit here. Got an e-mail from a woman today whose husband had all of his fishing stuff stolen when his garage was broken into a couple of weeks ago. She got my name from the wife of a fishing buddy and she was wondering if I knew of anyplace where he could go and start replacing his stuff - like tackle sales, garage or rummage sales, etc. or if I knew of anyone who was looking to sell some of their tackle.

Here is kind of what he lost so you can have an idea of what he might be looking for: " I know that he had 2 of the St. Croix rods, retail $250-300. I bought him a Shimano Reel , retail $100.00 a few years ago. He had a ton of the Rapala walleye lures, some Musky baits (not too many). He hasn't replaced any of the spinners yet. He bought some of the jigs this weekend along with a Gander Mountain brand combo rod.

He doesn't like a "heavy" rod. He also had a few other reels that were $150-250.

And he had a really nice soft sided green tackle bag/box that held 6 of the plastic organizer deals."

Sounds like he is mostly a walleye and pannie guy.

Anyone know of anyplace or anyone who might be able to help this guy out?

Or - on the other hand - if you hear of anyone trying to unload stuff like this let me know and I will pass it along.

Thanks for any help you can provide.

    • Next up Grow Lights, I have a south facing window in my den that I use to start plants with. I have a big shelf at window height then I use glass blocks and put steel closet racks on top to set my plants on. I can stack about three levels high. Above all of this I have a three bulb flood light fixture This year I went out and bought three 15 watt grow lights. I had to buy some socket extenders so the grow lights would screw into the floodlight sockets. Tried them out last night and they are pretty dang bright. I am going to have them on during cloudy days and in the evening to see if they help promote growth. Any day now I should have some tobacco coming up and I will see if the lights help speed up their growth.

    • I think the Wild vs Jets games are pretty awesome atmosphere-wise. They have a lot of fans that travel down here for games too. It would appear to be a fun place to watch a game in Winnipeg for sure!
    •   And we've never won the war on homicide yet either
    • Have heard that's a fun arena to catch a game at.
    •     Actually I haven't advocated anything. Just pointing out the War on Drugs hasn't been a success along with skepticism that anyone can "win" it   I'll leave the debate of legalization and the pros and cons of doing such to others    
    • The problem of prescription abuse has been recognized on a national level, but it must not fit the agenda, since there was no funding appropriated to go with the legislation.         On the national level, Congress this year passed the Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act(CARA), which increased to 275 the maximum number of patients for whom a physician can provide medication-assisted treatment (MAT) for opioid dependence. In a provision aimed at controlling usage and reducing diversion, the law allows prescribers or patients to request partial prescription refills and then opt to have the remainder filled within 30 days.

    •   They're legal until they fall into the wrong hands.  But I haven't heard of many cases where doctors or patients have ended up in prison for distributing narcotics.  So far, the suggested remedy for the epidemic seems to be for the states to set up online information sites so the public can be "educated" about the dangers of using addictive drugs.     So, apparently, armored vehicles, swat teams, and prison sentences are the answer for illegal drugs, and education is the key for legal drugs,
