Sunday night, Oct 19th, someone broke into 56 of 72 garages at an apartment complex in St Cloud. One of those garages was my son-in-laws, a very avid bass fisherman, who worked since the age of 16 in a tackle shop in Alexandria. This young man, 24 yrs old now, worked his butt off to get what he had, is very proud of his equipment and took extreme care of everything.

They left his boat alone, left several G-Loomis rods, left his depth finders and took two huge tackle boxes of his equipment. It is a [PoorWordUsage] shame that some low life can come in and wipe everything out in a matter of minutes. If you have any info that may help find the low life, I will put up $100 if an arrest is made. Does not seem like much, but he is my fishin buddy!!!

I like your son in law and Deitz was once victomized. I was a young trusting youth staying at a KOA campground at lake Cokato. My older cousin and I oared a boat out and got on a nice crappie bite. Upon returning to shore we were excited to share our catch with Dad. I neglected to keep a close eye on my tackle box and all the lures of young lifetime were gone.

I have learned over time that I as one person can not change the world. However, I know that I can have a positive impact on those around me.

That being said if you let me know a few of your son in laws favorite bass lures I would certainly like to help getting him back on track with some brand spanking new ones to load up that new box.

I will keep my eyes and ears open here too, as I once had all my fishing stuff stolen from my garage as well. Funny thing is ( if you call it funny) it sat out against the side of my garage all summer, ( i know dumb idea!) and none touched it,, 3 days later after i cleaned my garage out to put the fishing stuff in it for storage, someone came into my garage and took everything but my fillet knife and dipnet! Sorry to hear about the loss, and it's a shame some lowlife had to resort to this.

I remember a guy got his truck stolen and it was found from a tip on this site about a bug deflector on craig's list. I will keep my eyes open as well.

this brings back some painfull memories. at my senior keg i left my truck someplace i shouldn't have when i got back my box was gone. 4 years later my bronco was stolen, all my fishing stuff was left inside. that was the last time i left it in my vehicle.

i'm sure after 8 years of collecting, there must have been some irreplaceable lures in there. stuff that is no longer made. aaaaaarrrrrrrrrrrgggggggggggggggghhhhhhhhhhh!!!! best of luck to you and your son on your search.

Doufish2 - Sorry to hear it! I will also keep my eyes open. If he works at C's I have probably talked to him - small world!

I also have to ask - won't his renter's insurance cover some of it?

Yes he has insurance, it's just the idea he worked his but off and some low life has to take it all.

Yes, he worked for C's.

    • So our bear friend came back today and she brought somebody with her. It might be time to quit feeding the birds sunflower seeds until next fall.  
    • I picked up that double bag deal about a month ago at Home Depot here in Sioux Falls. Ironically it was the same weekend we had the big April snow storm.
    • I see Home Depot advertising for Memorial day but no Kingsford double bag on sale. Has anyone seen any on sale anywhere? I am down to my last bag and need to stock up, Memorial weekend is usually the time to do it.
    • Found a cardinal nest in one of my shrub bushes. Cute little gray fuzzy things. I tried to take a picture, but my camera phone sucks, and I didn’t want to bother them. I’m so glad I spent $20 on a cardinal nest box, only to have it sit empty.

    • Wisconsin's turkeys have survived my visit this year.  One is surely deaf after I managed to miss at 18 paces as he walked past me...  Not sure how that happened...   I feel like I rushed the shot when he started to get nervous.  Passed one jake the first morning that I could have taken at 40yd.   Came very close on two other mature gobblers.   One picked me off as he came around a hay pile at 20yd and immediately turned and ran, very smart bird.   The other came in hot, but decided to do a circle around me.  Appeared at 30yd wide open to my side while I was aiming down the sights towards his last gobble, and I had no chance to turn and shoot...  
    • Mentored for the Mn DNR women's Turkey hunt on Fri night and Sat morning. Friday was quiet but the birds flew up within 40 yards af the blind so we were hopefull for what the morning would bring. Sat morning was quiet and I waited till shooting hours to make my first yelps which were immediately cut off by 4 different birds. My lady was excited to say the least. She had never seen a turkey in the wild growing up and living in iron range.  Two of the toms gobbled a little after fly down but I could tell the were going north. The other 2 that were to our east gobbled a bit but shut up but sounded like the were coming down the road towards us. After about 20 minutes they rolled a big triple gobble within 60 yards wondering where this hen was at. I gave them a few purrs and set the call down getting her ready and calming her down for the shot. We still had not seen them put I could hear that unmistakable sound,pfffft boooom. Now I'm getting excited because I know they are danger close but they are on the side we can not see. Like always they proved me a fool and instead of coming right up the little road the cut through a high spot in the swamp and pop out in the field at 30 yards. They immediately hit full strut and throw a huge gobble right in our face and directly at my decoy that is set up at 8 yards. Then instead of coming right in they circle the decoy and blind at 25 yards and go to the side of the blind that is closed and gobble and strut for 15 min finally working into 8 to 10 yards bit still won't come towards the decoy. So I shut the one blind window and get her moved for a shot. The birds are now at 18 yards but getting skittish and moving away. As soon as I get the window open I hear her string drop and whay sounded like a hollow feathery smack and she says she got it. I look up and the birds are still there and look just a little nervous so I hit the call and they gobble back so I know it was a miss. So close but it was so much fun. Those 2 birds hung out for a few hours after strutting and gobbling at everything. 
    • Great bird, way to keep at it.
    • Nice bird, good job!
    • I assuming you are putting on the 5/16 T & G? I pushed mine tight and face nailed. Two nails per stud
