lost/stolen auger

Recommended Posts

my new jiffy model 30 fell off my sled as i pulled it out onto long lake north of saint francis this evening. I saw the only truck leave the lake a mid to late 90's gold s-10 pickup with a topper before i relized it had fallen off i was maybe 300 yards from the access when i noticed it was gone. I have filed a police report but won't press charges if it is returned. PM me if you have any info.

Don't get me wrong, I really hope you get it back, but how can you file a police report for something that was lost? I don't think any charges would stand up in any court against this guy as he could claim he found something on public property and the court could deem it as abandoned property.

Nothing to press charges on if you drop it, but man that is a kick in the teeth I understand your dissappointment.

Filing a police report is a good idea. If an honest individual finds it and wants to try and return it they may very well contact the police department to see if anyone reported a lost property report.

you may very well be right but in stating that it is abandoned couldn't i drive up and steal an empty wheel house and drive away with it and say it was abandoned on public property?, seeing the guy drive off with it, in my eye's, would be stealing he could have just as easily turned around and made an atempt to find out if the guy a couple hundred yards away had accidently dropped it. bottom line the auger probably is never going to turn up. im out 1 new auger and my season is over.

i stated that the auger fell off my sled in the police report at any rate my hope was that the person would get pulled over or see a posting on this forum and i could recover my property as i can't afford to replace it

Dont know the laws in MN ,but in SD you have to make a reasonable attempt to find the propertys owner or you can be charged. Dont remember the exact charge, but had this happen with a customers gift cards he lost in the parking lot.

    • 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.
