Pulled the boat into the garage yesturday from sitting next to the garage so I could start getting ready pull off the cover only to find that someone needed my trolling motor more than I did. three years ago they stole my ice fishing stuff from out of my garage and now this.. I cant beleive who ever did new anything about anything it was a PD55 under powered piece of [PoorWordUsage]. I only hope that it shorts out on them like it has on me in the past and starts on fire..

Bummer,

I am so tired of hearing about people stealing from hard working individuals and then the police don't do anything and if they do catch em they just get a slap on the hand and sent on their way. I really wish we had the steal once cut one hand off steal twice cut the other policy.

Hopefully the guy who took your motor will get run over by a truck.

Hopefully you are covered by insurance. I'd check the local pawn shops and online auction sites, as someone who doesn't take the foot pedal probably doesn't intend to use it themselves... I know when we bought our boat it had those UV light anti-theft stickers on every piece of equipment, those would come in handy in a situation like this, assuming you can locate the trolling motor.

A blessing in disguise now you can get the trolling motor you want.

Not trying to make light of the situation, heck leave a peice of him for me I could use some chum for the river.

bottom, Sorry to hear of your loss. Several years ago I had a 15 hp Jonny stolen off my boat in a locked garage. NOW, the garage has a 'burglar alarm' that I can even hear the vehicles cooling when they come home. ANYONE in that garage after I've locked it for the night will find themselves dodging 50 of my "solutions". Enough IS enough!! When I asked the chances of the motor being recovered... the cop just laughed.

    • Prespawn might be a stretch but I bet you see them on the beds.  Late start/almost no spring in these parts but the water has warmed quickly once the ice finally left.   Last weekend, at about the same latitude as OTC (assuming that’s where you’re headed) the males were all over in the shallows.  Didn’t see many bass beds yet and didn’t see any big females but they’re getting close.  Didn’t have a way to check temps so I can’t tell ya that, just what I saw.   Heading to Ely this weekend - I’ll have temps and observations from there next week.
    • So Fenton is the pick, maybe we can sell off our talent and pickup some middling speedsters/diamonds in the rough and make a vegas like run. 
    • It is not looking good from our end. I finally got Morgan out yesterday and she came to full draw on a nice tom but he busted her on the draw and scooted out of there. I got a shot off at him at 20 yards and he was walking and I didn't quite lead him enough. I clipped feathers back in high but he was fine otherwise.   I have family obligations this coming weekend and stuff going on the following weekend. There's a good chance that our turkey season is over.  If this was Ryan without the tag he would be pushing hard and still chomping at the bit to shoot something. Morgan is much less concerned with filling her tag.    Unpunched tags drive me completely crazy! But it looks like we will have some in the Engel household this year. Sorry team! Good job to you guys who managed to get it done and my apologies that we couldn't hold up our end of the bargain. Well... Ryan did, but Morgan and I couldn't do it this year. Next time!
    • The lake was low when we fished it but they only closed the dam days before ,, should be able to get under the bridge to get to Little yellow ,,, I have not heard that the crappie action was going well tho ,,, Did catch some decent pike  but no walleyes 
    • How high is the water, wondering if we can get into little yellow this memorial weekend or not.  How was fishing?    
    • Here are a couple pictures from our WI season. We were able to take 5 birds. Two of us had two tags and one buddy just had one tag. Really think the predators in the area have these birds learning to be silent. They do not gobble much and if they do it’s mainly morning before fly down 2 or 3 times at the most. Over that last 5 years it’s been like this the first 10 years gobbling was heard through the day but now you don’t hear that gobbling in the distance or to calls very often. Still come to calls but almost ways silent now which is fine they still come in.   Finally all done and food plots are almost finished love the spring time.
    • Congrats on the bird
    • Congrats on the bird.
    • Assume you were in a blind since you are bow hunting.  That is a long time ...  active bird or no bird.   Very Nice.
    • Way to go!  That's persistence!
