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...
