Recommended Posts

bhorn: Was it stolen or fall off a truck or trailer? Came through that area south bound from LOW on Saturday morning did not see anything in the ditches. HOpe you find it, otherwise call your insurance agent. Bill

It fell of the trailer. It fell off about 5 miles from where I was staying and when we got there and didn`t see it I immediatly left to look for it. I found one of my buckets and everything else was gone. We only seen one other vechile behind us (Coming back from Red 11:30pm) and they must have picked it up just that quick. I lost everything fishtrap, 4 rods, 5 boxes of jigs, lantern,2 spot lights,heater with tank,and I`m sure there is a coulpe of things that I missed. I found 2 jig boxes and 2 rods but not the ones I was hoping to find. It was a good trip until this. I came home(Illinois) with my Marcum and auger. I am really surprised that at least some of it was returned but nothing. If I don`t here anything soon I am going to go to the Twin cities this weekend and try to start to replacing everything. I had a custom rod (Rod maker no longer makes)that I really was hoping to find but it was no where to be found. By the way we had 2 ratchet straps and 1 other strap on it. I still can`t believe that it got loose and fell off. At least we didn`t get hurt and have are health. Fish On

Bhorn it looks like someone else will be putting it to use! Better just call your insurance company! Maybe you will get lucky and see someone using your custom rod. Then the talking will surely begin! grin.gif
Check the local papers. Maybe these guys are honest and put a add in 1. Ill keep a eye out in the Duluth paper.

With all the good people I have met in Minnesota I was surprised that they didn`t turn it in. I guess there is always a bad apple. If I do see the person useing my it will be a day he won`t soon forget! Looks like I`m headed to the Twin cities this friday. Going to bring my better half and go to the mall of america for some brownie points. Fish On

    • 501A .Going earlier than my normal B season this year. 
    • 504A for me. Taking a newbie out this year if he was drawn. Need this weather to turn around pretty quick.
    • I also picked up a couple extra trailer tilt pins in case someone walks off with mine again. I would have taken my enclosed trailer but my check engine light is on in my Suburban to and it comes up knock sensor. And they don't recommend driving it with bad knock sensor or could damage engine. Need a warmer day to tackle that as it involves removing the intake to get at the darn thing. Hope my luck improves
    • Seems like one could use chuck to make corned beef, but don't see much about it on the net...  Might be a fun experiment.
    • Dropped it off at dealer today and might be a week to get it back. Not sure you have relays with manual reverse but if anyone is looking for spares they are $5 at O Rielly parts and they have more expensive ones to but look just like the $5 ones. I bought 4 of them for spares. Im also going to ask mechanic when I pick it up if there is a way to get it out of reverse manually so if it ever happens out in the middle of the woods. 
    • corned beef is right up there but we are now getting into the season where the sales will start!!  love the ruebens too!!!  but it is one thing I never made from scratch, just store bought and cooked...  go for it bobber!!! 
    • Got drawn for the MN B season! Hope the weather cooperates.
    • Did you ever end up making corned beef Thunderlund? or anyone?The Mrs went up to cub yesterday so I had her pick up some c beef from the deli for Ruebens, holy moly they dont give that stuff away!!  I see most recipes call for brisket ( thinking maybe end up kind of stringy) but I do have several chuck roasts,  I'm thinking brining one and give it a whirl..If so how'd it turn out?
    • I use a lighter duty set on the front because they fit tighter and have better clearance. On the back I use  more aggressive v-bars. Sometimes one set isn’t enough and once I got stuck with both sets on. I’m pretty new to this too but for the most part they’ve worked  well for me.
