Lost Tackle Box

Recommended Posts

Green Lakewood tackle box fell out of my truck somewhere between Hugo and Forest lake. Just hoping someone on here might have seen it and picked it up.

That sucks, I hope someone finds it and returns it to you. I had the same thing happen a couple years ago and mine was never recovered. With over $1000 worth of gear inside I know how bad it hurts. Good luck.

I have driven it a couple times and stopped and got out to look everywhere I turned or stopped. I'm sure someone picked it up by now.

A lesson for everybody. Always make sure your gear is secured and its probably worth writing your name and phone number inside your tackle box.

ouch...

I wonder if the Lakewood stayed in tact after the fall. And I would think it would take a big bounce for that thing to be thrown into the ditch. Someone probably picked it up.

Might be worth calling the county sherrifs office, or some pawn shops who knows...

I live in that neck of the woods - I'll tell the wife to keep her eyes peeled as she's head to FL for gorceries.

definitely call the sheriff's office, there isn't a lot they can do but if they're willing to consider it stolen you can file a police report and you'd be able to reclaim your tackle if it's found anywhere.

I had a bibs box fly out of my trailered boat near Red lake last year. I watched it get smoked by an oncoming RV. I only had one casualty out of the 30+ baits in it.

Saturday, I had a new Justencase box go deep six after bouncing some waves. It sank like a stone in 30ft of water. It was full of my favorite jerk-baits and Topwaters + some new custom painted Big games.

Luckily, I way pointed the spot and called my buddy that scuba dives. He dove down and recovered it like a treasure chest! He did the same for me last year after I "accidentally" threw a rod overboard.

Jerry -

That's pretty darn lucky salvaging all your gear when it easily could have all been gone in an instant.

With that track record you might want to pick up a copuple bungees though!! wink

Been there, done that... sucks when I did it in front of Steve Jonesi... but at least the big splash that followed caused a reaction... and thank god that Edge rods float even with a 7000iC3 attached and a Mag Dawg on other end...

    • Seeing the fish is probably my preference since I would probably release it anyway. The only unfortunate thing would be not having a photo of it. 
    • I stick pretty simple on full chickens.... A couple of pads of garlic butter under the skin and a little olive oil rub down on DRY skin (very important to have dry skin if you want it to be crispy when you are done). Seasoned the big one with Lawry's and the small one with Weber Kick'n Chicken. Heated the grill up to 375. Both birds were done in a little over an hr..... Pretty cheap and easy - and the wife is getting sick of pork so,,,,,,
    • Agreed... that is why I took the gamble on a brand that no one had heard of at the time... but the Big Horn grills are getting picked up by more and more vendors. Hopefully they don't figure out that they are giving away profit and decide to raise their prices! On the flip side, have you shopped for a gas grill these days? Holy smokes! The char-broil 3 burner basic that cost $129.99 3 years ago is now $209.99... what gives?  
    • I bought a motorcycle from a guy a few years back only to find out he never turned the title over in his name when he bought it. If I remember right I had to write to the DMV main office with a copy of the bill of sale before they would share the past owners of the bike. Then it took some detective work but I was able to track down the first owner and get them to write a new bill of sale.  Also had an old utility trailer I bought the same way, but for that I just re-registered it as a home made trailer.  At least there is Goggle now to look up some names if you can get them. Good Luck.  
    • dat looks darn good!!!!   what seasonings this time??  
    • My concern with the Statement of Facts sheet is it talked about watercrafts with titles.    I was a first time privet party boat buyer and saw a good deal. Got over eager and didn’t really know what to look for. The hull is a 97. I purchased it with only a bill of sale. When I brought the bill of sale into the DMV they said sorry can’t put this in your name or issue registration. The name on this bill of sale is not the actual owner.   Everything I’m reading about the application process requires actually knowing the owners actually name and information and requiring his signature. I have now idea who the real owner is and on top of that the seller is appearing to be mia...   Is there anything I can do or am I just SOL and learned my lesson the hard way?
