Lost/Stolen Rod Case Devils Lake

Recommended Posts

I know this is a long shot but it's worth the try. I was fishing on Pelican Lake on Friday night and then on Six mile bay on Saturday morning. Somewhere in between Friday night and Saturday morning my rod case disappeared. It is unlikely that I lost it as it would have been in the fish house under a cover that was on during travel. I also took the snowmobile back to the areas we fished on Friday night and checked and talked to other anglers with no luck.

This leads me to believe it was possibly stolen out of the back of the truck in where we stayed in Minnewauken. If this is the case and somebody notices it, the authorities already are aware and the local DNR Officer has my contact info and exact description of missing equipment.

It is an Otter Sportsman's Case with a red and black WeatherTech(like the floor mats) sticker on the front of it so it stands out from a distance. Inside there were 4 rod combos and a digital camera.

32" Thorne Bros Perch Sweatheart/Shimano Sahara 750 series

24" Thorne Bros Panfish Noodle(pink tip with Fuji guides)/Shimano Sienna 500 series

24" St. Croix Premier UL with spring bobber/Shimano Sienna 500 series

28" St. Croix Premier ML/Pflueger President

Cannon Powershot digital camera with photos of me on it....

If anyone would happen to find this case or see someone with it please notify the local authorities and contact me through a message on here. There will be a very generous reward to anyone who could help me recover this. thank you

Sorry to hear of your loss. Hate sound uncaring and hijack your thread, but how was the fishing? Would like to run out there one more time this year.

thanks dogs

It's hard to sleep at night summer or winter knowing that your rods, electronics, auger, etc. is ready for the taking.

Other than bringing all your stuff into the hotel - not sure how to prevent loss.

I did a "Thorne ice rod" search on "search tempest." it's a way to look at all the craigs lists for a huge area.

Good luck.

    • I’m in a similar situation right now and I am “freaking out” how did it work out for you what paper work did you file? Who did you reach out to?
    • Did someone pee in your charcoal 😁?
    • I like to see the fish that gets away verses not. A few weeks ago, I was trolling for walleyes on the SLR and while reeling one in, something grabbed a hold of it and fought hard for a while but chewed the walleye pretty bad. Trolled over the same are 20 minutes later and caught another walleye and this time it didn't let go and I saw what was eating my walleyes and it was a huge musky that got close to the boat and snapped the line and left with my crankbait and fish. So, the one I saw that "got away" was a cooler sight than the mystery fish that attacked my walleye that I never got to see earlier that day
    • Besides the motor on the back, I don't see much a difference between an old boat and a new boat.   It's not like new boats parallel park themselves.           
    • and still end up with an old boat as was said earlier.  I think it's more a labor of love for what we have...
    • looks like it got corrected! thanks Rick
    • Looks fine to me @rundrave :D
    • Hello from the NW Angle!

      Surface water temperatures range from 65 in the morning reaching low 70s during the late afternoon. 

      Minnesota has been best in shallower areas such as the Flag Island Flats (5-9 ft.) Prime time being the evening bite with many nice fish including a 31" beast. Deeper water around Four Blocks and LIttle Oak are providing good action for Walleye/Sauger. Orange has been the top color. Even with the recent Mayfly hatch and plenty of crayfish in fishes bellies, (Walleye, Sauger and Northerns) the fishing is awesome!

      Canadian fishing has been the best using bottom bouncers in the mud with gold being the most productive color spinners. Jigging will produce fish around structure with larger Walleye/Sauger coming out of 26+ feet of water. Pike and Muskie action is somewhat concentrated to underwater weeds or occasionally while jigging for walleye.

      We hope to see you soon!

    • I think you'd probably have to develop connections to find the right boats at the right price.  If you could also increase the number of boats you do in a given season you could also start buying some materials in bulk which would help drive material costs down.  Still I'm guessing margins would be relatively thin, certainly not a get rich quick scheme.
