LOST PORTABLE!!!

Recommended Posts

I lost my green Eskimo Quick Flip 3 portable fish house on February 14th at 7pm. I was fishing on Lake Ida in the Winstead/Waverly area. I think I lost it coming off the lake or somewhere along the gravel road leaving the lake. It was the house, 20lb tank, scoop shovel and 2 otter rod holders. Please, if you found this unit be kind and return, it also had my MDNR# 004-231-817 on a piece of paper stuck in the license holder of the door. I can be reached by phone at 320-583-5129. Thanks, Shawn

Hope you find your gear. That would be very disheartening. Maybe it's possible they'll be able to get a hold of you using your DNR # by contacting the DNR. Never tried it though and don't now if it can be done. Have faith in the good ones out there, which I hope most of us are.

Hope you find it, sorry to hear you lost it. Never know, I've seen people get things back using this site. Good luck to you.

How is a very good question.

I do feel for you however it happened. Like Sandman said using this site you can get very lucky. Other than that if you lost it by any nearby residential houses coming off the lake you might want to start by going door to door. One of the locals might have spotted it or better yet grabbed it especially if it was on a road. Good luck.

Not hard to lose really if its hitched or tied to a machine . I've had my hitch fail numerous times but I was lucky because the bride was watching or a friend riding behind . All my best in seeing it returned . From what I have seen on this site in the past I honestly think you have a shot at it .

Thanks for all the support! My wife and I were in a hurry loading things up in the truck cause our lil boy was getting sick and I forgot to close the tailgate on my truck. I heard it slide around as usual but this time I didn't have the tailgate shut on my truck and when I got home I went to unload it and my auger (that didn't slide out) and my house was gone. Just in a mad rush and stupidity on my part is how I lost it to answer your questions. I heard it slide either coming off the incline of the access or when I stopped for my boy to get in his car seat and took off again. I didn't think twice about it cause it always slides in the back of my truck but usually I have the tailgate up. Thanks

Yes, I drove back to the lake and looked for it, my buddy was also fishing out there and left awhile after I did, but to many people left in between him and I that probably found it.

Call the local sheriff's office and let them know about it, somebody might have contacted them about finding it. That is how we found the owner of one that we found on the highway.

Good advice, hopefully whoever picked it up does the right thing.

Worst case...if it doesn't turn up...it means...UPGRADE!!!

I hope who ever found it will turn it in because likely they wouldn't need a second house if they are already fishing.

Good luck!

Good stuff! I was going to say that it would probably be covered under the car insurance. But, good thing you don't have to raise your rates!

    • Among other wilds that have moved into our urban areas, we can now add loons.  There is a breeding pair on the lake formerly known as Calhoun, mostly staying on the west and northwest sides.  But there is also a bunch of yearlings fishing the east side, numbering maybe six or seven and so unafraid that they come right up to the 36th Street dock and try to steal suckers being used for musky bait.  Maybe the call of the wild is not really so alien to the South side of Minneapolis, but it looks like the loons have moved in and can be heard calling from time to time. 
    • Sounds like you guys gave her heck up there to find them. I'd be praying thanks, too if I got that one on! ☺️
    • Quick recap:   Weather was too darn “nice”!  Upper 80’s - 90’s; no wind to speak of; mostly sunny. Water temps were anywhere from 64 - 71 depending on location and day.   We looked the lake over from end to end, marking up our map and returning to some places where we saw fish either later the same day or a couple days later.  We could literally see the transition from spawn to post spawn happening during our stay.  Being new to both muskie fishing and that lake, we spent time in dead water as much as good water but feel like we got a pretty good handle on how to go about setting up a more efficient return visit.  It was a lot work and long hours but I’d go back this weekend if I could so I must’ve enjoyed it.   A few pics as hoped for:
    • big dave 2 and leech, darn good lookin meals!!!!  Dave have a good weekend!!!!
    • Ok Dave have a good weekend. Hope you get over the whole butt hurt Leech deal! Not sure where you got that I don't like folks smoking or grilling things?  I know I do enough. Have fun! 🙂  
    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
    • I ripped a hole in one of my favorite pairs of fishing shorts just need a decent sized patch to cover her up
