HELP! Vexilar lost!

Recommended Posts

To make a long story a little shorter, my tailgate on my truck came open on my way home from lake Waconia tonight and my vex fell out of the truck somewhere between Wagener's bay and Belle Plaine.

I had some one else who was out on the lake tonight look for it on their way home but he had no luck. Another Item that fell out of the truck was found at the intersection by the Klein Bank or whatever it is called in downtown Waconia.

If someone picked it up and it still works, I would be happy to pay a reward if it is returned to me.

It feels like I lost my best friend. HELP!

Hey big dave I have a buddy that found a vex in Waconia on a road that would probably take you back home to belle plaine. It was also about the same time you lost yours if you can describe(model and such) you could have it back. email is in my profile just click on it.

Dave,

That guy would be me. I have your vexilar FL-8! I picked it up out of the road and you can come get it from me any time. I actually went around it and thought, boy that looked a lot like a vexilar, backed up and picked it up. When Andy and I were at Red Lake I told him, I had found it. The unit does work, but the case is cracked. Otherwise it is in pretty good shape. Andy had sent me your info yesterday regarding this unit but I was in Alabama for the Bassmaster Classic. Just got back late last night. Give me a shout. [email protected] (612) 251-5245 grin.gif

Holy dump! When I made this post I never in a million years expected to see my vex again!

Matt, you are truly an awesome person for giving it back! Glad to see there are still a few good people out there. I will be giving you a call soon to arrange picking it up.

Thanks again,

Dave

Well, I finally got over to Matt's house to pick up my vex. Other than the case being broken a little, it's not too much worse for the wear.

Matt is such a super guy that he would not even take any money for a reward. I tried, but when I got my billfold out, he walked away and wouldn't let me.

It even turns out that I had met Matt before. He used to work at Profish enterprises where I got all the supplies to build my wheel house last year.

Thanks again Matt, and my 6 yr old son thanks you since he will be using this one once he gets the hang of it because I went out and bought a new FL-20 when I thought mine was gone forever.

Dave

    • Hello from the NW Angle!

      Minnesota walleye are being caught at a variety of depths with 24-27’ being the most consistent. Glow red with gold has been a hot combo this week. Rattle baits continue to draw active fish to our houses. Sauger activity has been very strong, providing Anglers the opportunity for full limits before new regulations take effect on March 1st. New limit regulations give a combination of six walleye/sauger with no more than 4 walleye. The slot of 19.5”-28 must be immediately release with one walleye over 28’ to be allowed in possession.

      Canadian crappies are still filling buckets and freezers, they can be found near the bottom in 32-35ft. Super light tackle and willingness to keep trying different jig combinations is producing the most fish.  Many tulibee are being seen this week, which make for a tasty treat out of the smoker.  Walleye fishing continues to be very good in traditional areas, depth at 23-28ft. 

      Snow depth in our areas is between 2 and 2.5 ft. Trails are in great condition after last weeks snow and wind conditions. 

      Until next week, 
      Sunset Lodge
    • I must be mad at math, honestly we just lost 4 in a row and weren't good before that and yet we cling to 8th place. We can't even tank right and get a better draft pick. 
    • Borsch posted a reminder in the st cloud forum, so I wont take credit for being johnny on the spot but in 13 days you'all need to get a new fishing license.
    • I put a call into the Wisconsin DNR, they said March 1st license will be available.
    • good for you guys leech!!  and a darn good lookin family too!!!  being blessed like that is darn good!!!
    • What do you mean they are still in a playoff spot. Come on think positive! At least wait until they get done playing the blues today before you start to sing the blues. 
    • Tried to purchase the D season Wisconsin tag i was drawn for yesterday. Clerk said try again at the end of March, any truth to that? I will call the Wisconsin DNR on Tuesday (holiday tomorrow).
    • Well put in a few miles with the grandkids and daughter by Orock MN on Sat.  Trails were pretty nice but there were lots of sleds out and I'm sure they will be pretty beat up by the end of the weekend! Little guys had a great time driving and riding in the sleigh. Hot chocolate and cookies are always a good ride break warmer! Fun day, God has blessed me well.    
    • Dale’s has been doing great
