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...

    •     Free market Republicans????  HAHAHA,!!!!
    • Please God, make Keith Ellison the head of the DNC
    •   Doubtful we would have seen it by now. The bigger issue has always been possible collusion between Trump's campaign and Russian opps to influence the election - and who knew what and who ordered what. That's the big fish. You just have to be patient, all in due time Uncle Bill.
    •   I didn't waste a vote on him..   The garbage can had as much a chance of winning.   You owe the brave voters of Trump a great debt of gratitude for saving this country from hillary..   That's one big beer you owe the "trumpers"...   Bigly....  
    • Picked up some track at FF and put it on the floor and ramp. Also added a couple sections of e track on the wall to hang tie downs etc. Doesn't look like I'm going to get any use out of it this year but will be ready for next year. Plan on taking out track on floor in summer as it can get slippery and going to put in a couple wheel chocks for motorcycles.

    • There's a blessing on the ground.  It's coming down.  It's coming down
      Snow pains on the motor veinsSnow Days
      Keeps your business on the ground
      It's coming down
      Slow day for the teacher
      And her wheels are spinning now
      On account of winter, Mrs. Braintree
      All the roads are closed
      And the stores are loot for vagabonds
      It's coming down
      Go home!

      It's coming down
      Snow lays on the chainfields
      There's a blessing on the ground
      It's coming down
      If your lanes are crammed with children
      There's a blessing on your town
      On a lucky Monday, Mrs. Braintree
      All your lanes are waxen silver
      And the stores are loot for vagabonds
      It's coming down
      Go home! Go home and take a snow day, Mrs. Braintree!

      Mrs. Braintree, you're a chilly northern woman
      Go home from yonder bus stop
      Because there's a blessing on the ground
      Mrs. Braintree, it is written
      When the snows come over Dixie
      All the roads are closed and the stores are loot for vagabonds.

      It's coming down
      Snow lays on the chainfields
      There's a blessing on the ground
      It's coming down
      If your road's patrolled by children
      There's no order to be found
      On account of winter, Mrs. Braintree
      All the roads are closed
      And the stores are loot for vagabonds
      It's coming down
      Go home!   I think Reb lives next door to Mrs Braintree.  She's a chilly northern woman.
    •     I think he's actually you and delcecchi's hero, judging by the number of times you guys bring him up....
    •   So did you get a guarantee when we started and lost the war on drugs or is this your version of a double standard? I am saying here is a reasonable solution with the positives outweighing the negatives. This is especially true when compared to the current model that has never worked.   Benefits to ending the war on drugs.
      1. Huge savings enforcement and prison $$$ that can be used on treatment. 1 Trillion spent so far with no results.
      2. Police can focus their man hours on violent and other criminals. 82% of drug arrests are for possession. 3. Creating jobs and collecting taxes on drug sales. Imagine that save tax $$ on enforcement and increase revenue, win win. 4. The legit business model puts most of the dealers, gangs and cartels out of business. The very fact that drugs are illegal makes them expensive because of the risk involved, taking the money out of the black market essentially puts these people out business and that is a good thing. Keeping drug illegal keeps the money flowing their way and nothing we can do other than legalization will stop this.

       
      Says the guy who wants to double down on 45 years of failed policy and poor judgment.
      What is even more mind blowing is that free market republicans want to continue failed big gov policies at a huge cost to the taxpayers. We already have legal drugs from big pharm killing people in record numbers to go along with alcohol and tobacco deaths so it is not like we are venturing into unknown territory here.
