Sounds like a targeted event. Keep your eyes on hsolist with keyword Icefishing.

I hope his insurance will cover the loss? If this happened to me the first suspect inline would be my wife. frown

In this case the items belonged to the female half of the pair.

I guess I better check my assumptions as being a male dominated sport! shocked Hopefully they find the responsible party and throw the book at them.

That's to bad. It's pretty bad when you can't even put stuff in your garage without haveing to worry if someone is going to break in and steal things. Hope you guys can recover your stuff.

Speaking of initialing my stuff, I might use my dremel and just etch everything I own.

Thanks Skee for posting this! It was my gear that got stolen a couple of nights from my home. I'm so heartbroken, because ice fishing has been my winter hobby for the past 3 years. My hubby doesn't go out there. It's a hobby that mainly me and my daughter do or it's my alone time getaway for a few hours. I really hope my stuff can be recovered. If you have any information, please let me know. I would highly advise writing down serial numbers for your augers or any other identifiable equipment. Luckily I had a video of everything and I provided that and photos to the police. I didn't have serial numbers or anything marked. Here is my FB post with some pics: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=...e=1&theater

Sounds like some punk kids just checking things out and taking what they can. Check all your local pawn shops and see what kind of ice fishing gear has been brought in lately. Also keep on eye on Kraigs people like to steal and sell on there.

You could probably set a trap and catch them in the act or get pics/video of them.

    • I picked for about 2 hours this morning. I'm not exactly haw many I got but its enough for a couple meals. I'm going to chop some of these up and mix with some cream cheese, feta cheese and garlic chives and then stuff some chicken breasts and cook them on the grill. The little bit of rain that we got last week helped the shrooms pop but it really didn't do much else for the woods besides help the mosquito's hatch. There were so many they licked the bug spray off first then swarmed. I found the mushrooms all over, North, South, East and West facing hills. Normally spot 1 has the best results but this trip it was my second spot. All of them had pretty good size too. Only a few that were in direct sunlight were dried up otherwise they are very firm. Spot 1 is the left container. Don't worry, I use a mesh bag while I'm out in the woods!
    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
    • Yes, 5/16 T&G I installed last fall. I did the same, but I see this summer it's starting to buckle  
    • Adding a 4th wouldn't do much IMO. The map screen is already too small to be useful when screen is split in 3. I added a Helix 7 G2N to use as a map screen. Networked with other 2 units
    • I could always go and spend more money on an additional unit but some of it is like Floyd said. I have a hard enough time watching one screen. I have the app on my phone. I think that lowrance has the ability to split the screen into 4. I just can't believe I'm the only person who would like to see this but maybe I am. It may not be as big a deal once I get more familiar with the unit. Right now I like to look at all the screens to help discern what it is im seeing on the screen.  I appreciate the input!     
    • Males were on the beds last night on a lake here in the metro. Not my deal, so I let 'em be. Which means I didn't catch much at all compared to last week.   Oh well, be a couple weeks before the summer patterns start happening. Already a hint of cottonwood floating on the water though. *booooo*
