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.

Sorry to hear. Many years ago I had an outboard stolen from my garage. I feel your pain.

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.

    • Think im gonna try good old grass clippings since they seem to replenish themselves very rapidly
    • My good buddy from back in SD does fantasy and we have another group we are apart of and he ended up tied for 5th overall last tourney. After day 3 he was in 3rd with the possibility to win it. So close to getting that $2500 basspro card
    • After the cold snap, temps on Trout were back down in the high 40s. Back around 53 now, and should keep warming if the forecast holds. Fish have already moved shallow, bedmaking and piscine lovemaking will follow soon for the brown ones. I am hitting Leech tomorrow...will be interesting to see what water temps are in the protected parts of the bays.
    • Here's some useful information: go shallow, and chuck a swim jig with a paddle tail trailer and set the hook til your arms fall off. Better?
    •   If you like to tinker with guns, you can get a surplus Saiga for a couple hundred bucks.  All sorts of accessories available for these, and they can also be converted to 12 gauge if that's your preference.          
    • I was out last night on a local lake and was surprised to see the water temp down to 57.  Caught a couple cookie cutter fish, but not the big ones I was looking for. Fished a lot of weeds in the 6-9ft range, but not a lot going on there. The biggest one was still shallow in some reeds, so not sure if we are still in the spawn/post spawn stage.     Whats everyone else seeing out there for a bite and fishing conditions. Big weekend coming up, Good luck!! 
    • Maxine_Partain, Welcome to the forum.  There seem to be a lot of folks from Canada joining up in the last half a year which is nice. The sad thing is they all seem to make about 3 posts on the same day they joined and then they never come back which is sad. Hopefully you will keep posting.

    • hi and welcome to HSO. I think you mean double hung not double pane. if you have moisture between the panes you have a seal failure. depending on the brand you might be able to just replace the glass. If you have lots of rot you may need to do a complete replacement. Best to have a window person pop by and check out the situation.
