Muskie fisherman missing in Mille Lacs

8 posts in this topic

I read this on M1st. BE CAREFUL, no fish is worth your life. Thoughts go out to the family and hope for the best although it's been 2 days now.

"A muskie fisherman from Maple Grove, MN is missing on Lake Mille Lacs. His boat was found up near Red Door in the Knox point area. His name will not be released until his family or police do. He used the Casino landing and was last seen there on Wednesday around 5pm. He was fishing out of a 518 Ranger, his wallet was found in the boat with his bow mount down. That is all the info that has been released at this time. If anyone has any information or remembers seeing a 518 Ranger up in the Knox Point area, please contact either the Mille Lacs County Sheriff, Aitkin County Sheriff, or Crow Wing County Sheriff's office's accordingly.

JRedig,

I took out Steve's personal contact info because it is way to easy for someone to gather more information about a person with an email address and phone number. Just wanted to let you know why.

No problem, i'm sure 911 will work for the same reason if something were found.

Thanks for posting JRedig. They believe he was fishing solo. Additional info is that the boat had a 150 Evinrude motor with a trolling plate on it. They are focusing on the areas from Indian Point all the way to Red Door.

Has anybody heard any news yet, whether he's been found or anything?

There were some news stories on KSTP and KARE 11, just that he was missing and hadn't been found. They were searching the south end last I heard with dive teams standing by.

Not sure the exact circumstances but be careful as the weather changes. I can't imagine what his poor family is going through.

I stepped out of a duckboat this weekend into what I thought was shallow water - turns out there was lots of muck so I sunk to the top of my waders. The point is, my brother was there and we were laughing about it as soon as my fat arse crawled back into the boat - if I was solo it could have been a bit scary.

    • It's a fat chick too! Nice pictures eyeguy!!
    • Stayed in a Holiday Inn Express last night.
    •   Ok, well what color would he like? I got some left over rounded ones from the kids so he wouldn't stick himself even!
    •   Bahaha, was checking to see what the new slug for deer hunting maybe, also? 
    • PF - Sorry to let you down.  I see you are a slug expert!!!!
    • Sheesh.  I clicked on this from the recent topics page thinking there was a new deer hunting thread......  Get a spray bottle with a salt solution and give them a shower. I think water with Dawn soap might be an option
    • I am flattered fellas, but in rebs defense he did say " goodies" and not "goods" or he would have some explaining to do . between the different s.i.t.e.s.  were on I post no shortage of food shots ,so reb grab that scissors from leech lol. You pick up  a belly yet moon lake?
    • wren chick sat on a chair on the deck for over 2 hours. cute little bugger

    • I think last year was probably the best/first year we should have gone for it at the deadline so no regrets on that one. We got Pommers at the deadline as well but he had some years left and we were able to resign him and overall he has produced for us so no biggy there either. I'm sure we all wish we could take back the Matt Moulson trade back, that was the only bad one that cost us a couple of 2nd rounders and he looked terrible, but again hindsight is always 20/20. The rest were all minor deals that didn't do much either way.    Someone will get moved at some point, we just can't fill out a team and or sign Grandlund & Nino without it, at least not that I can see. Sounds like we had a deal for the Canadians first but their guy was there so they kept the pick, no problem with Fletcher being patient on the trade front, might have to wait until some teams don't fill their needs via free agency before a move happens. 

       
    • anyone else have any issues with ChartInstaller? I last used it on my laptop a month or so ago and it worked fine. I am getting ready to go to North Dakota for a couple days and wanted to download some areas to my card that I hadn't before.   I removed the sd card from my Hummingbird Helix and put it in the laptop. Opened the CharInstaller program that was already installed and was prompted to update. I downloaded the new Chart Installer.exe file and no matter how many times I download it, reboot and retry install etc it will not install. I just get an error "There has been an error. Unknown Error upacking file C:/Program Files (x86)/Chart Installer/nwjc.exe   So while doing the upgrade I lost my desktop icon with no software to update my chart. I understand there is a 1 year subscription but I just got my navionics+ and put it on this card last October.   Any ideas?
