Lost Tackle Box

11 posts in this topic

Green Lakewood tackle box fell out of my truck somewhere between Hugo and Forest lake. Just hoping someone on here might have seen it and picked it up.

That sucks, I hope someone finds it and returns it to you. I had the same thing happen a couple years ago and mine was never recovered. With over $1000 worth of gear inside I know how bad it hurts. Good luck.

North or south bound? That would be worth taking a long walk....

I have driven it a couple times and stopped and got out to look everywhere I turned or stopped. I'm sure someone picked it up by now.

A lesson for everybody. Always make sure your gear is secured and its probably worth writing your name and phone number inside your tackle box.

ouch...

I wonder if the Lakewood stayed in tact after the fall. And I would think it would take a big bounce for that thing to be thrown into the ditch. Someone probably picked it up.

Might be worth calling the county sherrifs office, or some pawn shops who knows...

I live in that neck of the woods - I'll tell the wife to keep her eyes peeled as she's head to FL for gorceries.

definitely call the sheriff's office, there isn't a lot they can do but if they're willing to consider it stolen you can file a police report and you'd be able to reclaim your tackle if it's found anywhere.

I had a bibs box fly out of my trailered boat near Red lake last year. I watched it get smoked by an oncoming RV. I only had one casualty out of the 30+ baits in it.

Saturday, I had a new Justencase box go deep six after bouncing some waves. It sank like a stone in 30ft of water. It was full of my favorite jerk-baits and Topwaters + some new custom painted Big games.

Luckily, I way pointed the spot and called my buddy that scuba dives. He dove down and recovered it like a treasure chest! He did the same for me last year after I "accidentally" threw a rod overboard.

Jerry -

That's pretty darn lucky salvaging all your gear when it easily could have all been gone in an instant.

With that track record you might want to pick up a copuple bungees though!! wink

Been there, done that... sucks when I did it in front of Steve Jonesi... but at least the big splash that followed caused a reaction... and thank god that Edge rods float even with a 7000iC3 attached and a Mag Dawg on other end...

    • that would be samanthasquatch 
    • It's a female Bigfoot,  silly.
    • You can save the mapping data on an SD card. In order to create a map you will need the Zero Line Card. You will take the SD card and plug it into your PC. Down load the map data into the zero line software. The software than creates the map and uploads it to the zero line card. It is typically recommended to use an SD card for the data as once the zero line card is full of either maps or map data another card will need to be purchased.
    • whats a samsquatch?  lol
    • Nope....don't need friendseyeguy54..... It was a darn samsquatch!
    • Way to get him out MM!  I'm sure he appreciates it.
    • I believe some units come with maps of some lakes but probably wont have any real detail as far as contour lines.  I think most will have a map of the US but when you zoom in you wont get much for detail on lakes and If they do contours will probably be 5-7ft apart.  If you want to put data on a card you will need a zero line card for mapping. About $150 i think.  8 hours should give you quite a bit of mapping.  Best would be to buy from a retailer so someone with knowledge of the product can show you how to run it.  You might be able to take some snap shots of sonar and put on a blank card but don't think you can map with it. I would get a Lakemaster card for the area(s) you want to fish.  Worth every penny.
    • Turkey season is over for my nephew!! It was a long season with many hours spent in the blind. He seen more turkeys then ever before and had a toms close enough to grab. It is going to be nice to sleep in. Until fall turkeys!
    • Heading up to Devils in a couple weeks and again later on.  Doesn't look like a lot of activity on here.  Tryng to get an idea whats happening before I go.
    • I have been out the last two days locally and haven't set the world on fire. Caught a few each day, but fish have been scattered. Lake is loaded with curly leaf mats this year, so that hasn't helped things. Once that starts dying and weather warms up, things should pick up.
