Not rods, but I have misplaced a couple of things here or there. Usually find them in a day or two though.

One winter I threw on my winter coat for the first time since the previous winter. Stuck my hand in the pocket and found a $20 bill.

Then one other time 3 years after I had gotten out of the Navy, my dad asked to use my sea bag for his deer hunting trip. In the outside pocket I found my class ring. Thought that thing was lost forever.

I had a custom-jigs-n-spins tackle display box get lost. I got the whole 9x13" display kit givin to me by a friend who was closing her bait shop. The box had over 500 jigs in it.

Sizes 6-12 varies colors, Fatboys, Genz worms, rat finkies, demons, also alot of jigging raps that I put into the box. If I were going to replace the box I know it would cost close to $500.

Happened to me a few weeks ago. I had bought a new fly reel in July on a clearance sale at GM, and put it someplace. Of course I couldn't find it when I went looking for it a couple weeks ago. I wanted to try it for some late season smallies. I just found it yesterday with my fly tying stuff. Not sure how or when it got put there.

I never wear mine. My dad has a nub from where he lost his finger after getting his wedding band snagged on a hay wagon.

I was with my father in law and called her as soon as I seen I lost it. He looked at me and said what the heck you cant wait to get yelled at?? She was very understanding though. I was going to go swimming for it, but it was bitter cold and wasnt sure where it was lost. I kept it loose so I could take it off when working on electrical items due to horror stories and now I have one for keeping it loose.

You hear about the guy, from TX I think, lost his class ring 20+ years ago and about a week ago,a couple guys caught a large bass and it spit out this guys ring into their boat. They figure the fish found it on the bottom and just picked it up.

thought I lost my jigs the other day. I knew they were somewere in the house and I was just puzzled at were I hid them so "she" would'nt move them well low and behold they were right beside the vex on the floor upstairs. "she" actually made sense this time I know I did not put them there.

I'm starting to feel a little better. A couple of weeks ago I set my rod bag with 3 rods and a small tackle box with my chubby darters and raps on the back of my wheeler on the trailer. Decided to take a test run with the trailer...I didn't realize until a couple of days later what must have happened. I haven't been able to completely let it go - I still make desperate checks in the back of the pickup or under the workbench. Now I'm ready to move past it! Thanks.

There was a story of a guy who took his ring off and put it on the beak of a Sailfish, cuz he was getting divorced, guess he caught it the next year or something, what a place to store something. I usualy put my clippers in one of my bazillion pockets and then I just break the line and then Oh ..hey look ..there it is. Just look in that "other" safe spot, maybe you will find something else you were looking for and forgot about?

I just got a new Vex, used the first time Monday. I wanted to charge the battery and lo and behold couldn't find the charger. I knew I put is somewhere so the cat wouldn't chew on it, looked for 3 hours on Monday night, and started on Tuesday morning....no charger. Hubby walks into the bedroom, while I am tearing drawers apart and says "is that it on the shelf over there?" The shelf is on the wall behind the bedroom door, I had the door open obscuring the shelf. Now it is stored in the drawer I first looked in where I store my other chargers and misc. electrical cords. I was blonde growing up, now the hair is brown but the brains don't seem to have changed.

I've been out ice fishing a few times this year already, have done some portable mods, etc. My point is that I have been spending a fair amount of time playing with my fishing equipment this month. But the one thing I cannot find is my "bait puck". I have searched my normal ice tackle storage areas, the entire house, and the garage several times and the puckin' puck is no where to be found. I have even searched the kitchen fridge (my normal storage spot for it when it actually has bait in it, much to my wife's dismay). My wife thinks I have gone senile. I think she's right. But what I am most worried about is when I do eventually find it, it will still have last March's eurolarvae in in!!! eek

    • The green up is still in full swing this week, with the help of consistent rain events and temperatures between the 50s and 70s. This, combined with recent snow in the northern portions of the state continues to put a damper on recently high fire danger across and has brought us to "Low" fire danger throughout the counties. Water levels are still running above normal, and the Wisconsin River is above flood stage. Trails across the state are likely to feature more than a few hints of mud. Bring your rubber boots or waterproof hikers and enjoy the scenery as the banks, forests, marshes and prairies respond to the influx of moisture. Challenging weather made for tough angling across the board this past week. Anglers from Marinette County to Brown County reported numerous attempts at walleye and brown trout. Murkier water didn't help, but reports came in from anglers that they were seeing success for non-target species, particularly northern pike. In Oconto County, the sucker run is rolling along and disturbing the bite. In Brown County, those that did see success for walleye noted that the fish were fully spawned and on their way back to the bay. Stream anglers are reporting a difficult steelhead bite in eastern Door County, while suckers have dispersed in Kewaunee County, leaving the steelhead there more visible as temperatures climb upwards. Water temperatures range from the upper 40s to the low 50s. There were two to four foot waves and small craft advisories in effect last Thursday and Friday in Milwaukee. Anglers at the McKinley Pier are looking for coho and chinook salmon, while brown trout were being landed behind Summerfest. Anglers in Racine County reported boaters and pier anglers landing brown trout as well as a few coho. At the Root River, water visibility was around 12 inches, with an improving steelhead bite and a few remaining suckers caught. Anglers in Kenosha saw more success for browns from the harbor than the south pier. Though no catches were reported from the Pike, the mouth of the river is open and visibility is good. Temperatures for these waters ranged from 47 to 54 degrees Fahrenheit. .
