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.

    • I have two decoy jig sticks that just slip in between the rods and 'canvas' on the roof.  A fish can pull some line off it hits hard.  A Velcro loop can be added for additional security.   There are more custom ways of doing it but that works for me.
    • I'll betcha the camera doesn't survive the summer.   And I clean my weeds off and the pull the plug too without grumbling.
    • I know...   It was a joke...   This is Sillytown (capital S)...     I did check to see if the article was legit though.

    • This is silly town.  It was a joke, although on a stand alone basis the article was pretty interesting.   If it was an actual discussion item it would have been posted in one of the hunting forums. 
    • I oppose all that camera stuff, with auto ticketing.   How will the camera tell if there is water in my live well?  Or in my minnow bucket?  Will it focus on the plug as I drive into the parking lot?     I also oppose the red light cameras and speed cameras.  What's next?  Drones following us around? 
    • Must be a hell of a good camera and lens. And no, I follow the rules now as they are written.
