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!!!

A good place to watch is going to be the c-list. I will keep my eyes open for anything suspicious.

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.

    •   Because you have an affinity for such things??..    No, seriously, you need to take a good look at your browser's advanced settings.  Some browsers can be set so they will automatically wipe your cookies and search history every time you shut the browser down.  Not sure which browsers have this capability, but the one I use is Epic.    
    •   If we retrace what happened to get Obamacare passed in the first place, we need to remember the narrative that was used by the Democrats that there were 49 million Americans with no insurance.  Now they are saying 24 million Americans will lose their insurance if the law is struck down.  So I'm taking that to mean they actually got 24 million people to sign up in the exchanges under the law after 7 years.  So about as "successful" as the REAL ID Act...   Between the healthcare industry, big pharma, and the insurance industry, somewhere between $300 and $400 million was spent in lobbying to get the ACA passed.   The Koch brothers are pledging $300 to $400 million in the 2018 election cycle to strike the legislation down, and have also stated they will not support any politician in the future who votes for Ryan-Care.   It's how things work in the real world, like it, or not....

    •    In a  free market, ObamaCare would have collapsed two years ago. And all the promises made regarding it are and have been falling apart.   But government does not let boondoggles collapse. ObamaCare will be funded, unfortunately, with more debt and printing to keep it and all it's problems on life support   Think "too big to fail" and QE    
    •   Nunes Backs Down From Assertion Trump Was Monitored   Keep reading your fake news Uncle Bill. Also Nunes canned the next committee hearing on Russia. He is basically a Trump crony at this point, trying his best to obstruct the committees investigation.   There's Trump's transition team. Now go back and watch the Comey hearing. I think you will hear a certain 2 GOP representatives who are only worried about who is leaking intelligence rather than what the intelligence says (or literally the exact same thing Trump says).
    •   They could for example sell the information to your insurance company that would promptly adjust your rates if you showed a tendency toward unhealthy behaviors. It doesn't take much imagination.   There is actually a plan to fight this one. The goal is to crowd source some funding, then purchase the data for congressmen and publish them all to the public.
