LOST PORTABLE!!!

21 posts in this topic

I lost my green Eskimo Quick Flip 3 portable fish house on February 14th at 7pm. I was fishing on Lake Ida in the Winstead/Waverly area. I think I lost it coming off the lake or somewhere along the gravel road leaving the lake. It was the house, 20lb tank, scoop shovel and 2 otter rod holders. Please, if you found this unit be kind and return, it also had my MDNR# 004-231-817 on a piece of paper stuck in the license holder of the door. I can be reached by phone at 320-583-5129. Thanks, Shawn

Hope you find your gear. That would be very disheartening. Maybe it's possible they'll be able to get a hold of you using your DNR # by contacting the DNR. Never tried it though and don't now if it can be done. Have faith in the good ones out there, which I hope most of us are.

Hope you find it, sorry to hear you lost it. Never know, I've seen people get things back using this site. Good luck to you.

How is a very good question.

I do feel for you however it happened. Like Sandman said using this site you can get very lucky. Other than that if you lost it by any nearby residential houses coming off the lake you might want to start by going door to door. One of the locals might have spotted it or better yet grabbed it especially if it was on a road. Good luck.

Not hard to lose really if its hitched or tied to a machine . I've had my hitch fail numerous times but I was lucky because the bride was watching or a friend riding behind . All my best in seeing it returned . From what I have seen on this site in the past I honestly think you have a shot at it .

Thanks for all the support! My wife and I were in a hurry loading things up in the truck cause our lil boy was getting sick and I forgot to close the tailgate on my truck. I heard it slide around as usual but this time I didn't have the tailgate shut on my truck and when I got home I went to unload it and my auger (that didn't slide out) and my house was gone. Just in a mad rush and stupidity on my part is how I lost it to answer your questions. I heard it slide either coming off the incline of the access or when I stopped for my boy to get in his car seat and took off again. I didn't think twice about it cause it always slides in the back of my truck but usually I have the tailgate up. Thanks

Yes, I drove back to the lake and looked for it, my buddy was also fishing out there and left awhile after I did, but to many people left in between him and I that probably found it.

Call the local sheriff's office and let them know about it, somebody might have contacted them about finding it. That is how we found the owner of one that we found on the highway.

Good advice, hopefully whoever picked it up does the right thing.

Worst case...if it doesn't turn up...it means...UPGRADE!!!

I hope who ever found it will turn it in because likely they wouldn't need a second house if they are already fishing.

Good luck!

Good stuff! I was going to say that it would probably be covered under the car insurance. But, good thing you don't have to raise your rates!

    • If you consider the "thugs" as part of the protest group (which DC police even said they weren't, but only intended to do damage) then the answer is yes. The labeling of all because of the actions of a few is something I have and always will disagree with.
    • I clearly stated protest marches and not specifically the womens march. So,knowing that do you still disagree with me?
    • No where yesterday during the woman's march was there violence or racism exhibited. Intolerant towards things Trump wishes to eliminate yes. The damage by vandals occurred on Friday by a group of thugs who had only one purpose in mind and that was to destroy property and create trouble during the inauguration. (DC police even said that and they expected it.) Yes the Woman March did leave garbage to clean up, which can be expected. If you have ever had the experience of cleaning a (female) public restroom you would find out they have a problem with garbage cans. I'm sure most did take their signs with them in the same manner most ice-fisherman take their garbage off the lake with them, but there are some who don't. The top photo is the only one that is of the Woman March.   
    • Can you explain why you feel that way?    
    • I do believe you are out of line with the racist, intolerant, vandals comment.
    • I will slow it down. I did not say you said it was rigged. Your party,however went after Trump for not saying he would accept the election results and then turned around and in large numbers proclaimed they didn't accept the results. I don't expect you to understand the hypocrisy of that but at the same time it's there.   Conjecture. You don't have a single slice of evidence this is the case and you would be wise to retract it because it has no basis. None. Yet even though this is the sort of thing your party is outraged about by the right, you are actually more extreme about it on your side.    While there is direct evidence that the DNC blatantly rigged the Democrat primary in favor of Hillary and committed all manner of things that came out in the Podesta/DNC emails there was no outrage on your side over what they did. Yet you jump on Trump for something that was sold as truth when it was literally the same fake news the Dems have been pushing all cycle.    Considering the contributions that flowed into the Clinton campaign coffers in all manners it would be best to leave that sleeping dog lie.    In the meantime. you might want to take ownership of the mess that the racist, intolerant, vandals that made up the protest marches because you own that.    
    • i always thought they were about identical smoked  
    • Rumor has it they are running a story next week regarding ice fishing and CO. 
    • Looks like one to me. Nice catch  
    • I thought you lefties were against fake news.   Guess not so much anymore.   At least you haven't attacked Barron Trump, yet, unlike your fellow travelers.
