The shed at my cabin was broken into over the weekend. I have multiple tackle boxes for different waterways and directives. My BWCA bag was amongst the stolen. Trolling motor, battery charger, and the list goes on.

I did have cameras and the perpetrators / 17 year old kids have been apprehended, but my stuff has not been recovered and they are not talking.

If you were starting from scratch, what are your go-to ideas? I have my own thoughts. We'll be on the Gunflint in early June. I made a list and it’s huge, but I’m definitely guilty of being a tackle guy. I’m so bummed!!

Stealing a person's fishing gear may carry a life sentence without parole.

First, I'd buy four jigs. Then I'd cut the ears off the little shits and make the next fishing trip memorable.

So I’m thinking skitter pops, black jitter bug, rattling rogues, maybe some floating rapalas. For surface. Will be on Daniels like for a day and there’s lake trout Cleo spoons you tell me??

Nothing worse than a no good, low down thief. Hope you get your gear back.
 
11/11/2021 12:57PM  
Agreed...I'd keep pushing till they get it back to you or pay for all new
 
11/11/2021 11:19PM  
Not talking eh...that is easily fixed!

Heh! You remind me of the character in Pulp Fiction who's going to go all "Medieval" on the bad guy's "ass."

At seventeen they may not be legally adults. Lean on the parents to replace your gear. If they will not, you know why the kids turned out that way.

Sorry to hear of the theft. I would be crushed and angry. Hard to understand why someone would want to do that to someone else. Hope they get their punishment.

Direct message me so I can get your address. I’ll mail you a lure to get you started on building back your tackle. I bet others on here have something in their box they could pass forward, too.

I had a tackle box stolen a few years ago. Send me your address -- I'll be happy to help get you re-started.

I just sent you an email. Share what lures you like best and I'll send you some. I'll need your snail mail address too.

I’d first like to say amazing kind gestures from my boundary waters family. I am always impressed by how people step up. Bass pro 69 I think you’re big enough to handle the situation. Apparently they sold my tacklebox and my stuff at the local flea market or that’s what they’re going with. I’ve spoke to both sets of parents and after meeting them I understand exactly why the children behave like they do. I’m gonna post my address . And once again a big thank you from Lisa and myself.

Oh man! I'm so sorry this happened to you.

If the kids don't talk, I'd be posting the camera grabs of their faces and names all over their local community Facebook pages. Let everyone know who those little stinks are. ...please note - if you do this - don't slander. Just post the facts as a "ahem" community warning...

Place to start over - I already posted a new thread on this forum, where BizzBaits has a 20% sale site wide. Their soft plastics are ridiculous. I'm bringing some new jigs, spinners and buzz baits to the Gunflint Trail next mid-June. Can't wait.

I also have some extra baits I can send you...

Once again I’d like to say thank you to everybody. I think it would be a really cool way to start over. Happy Thanksgiving, be safe

You should send the parents a copy of all these posts.
Make them feel proud to know that we feel they are such an asset to the world.

Got a bunch I can send you too. You may have to build a storage shed to contain all the lures you will get from this group. LOL!

I had a similar run-in with a minor thief. Go to the DA and victim services and make sure your loss is known at the time of the trial, the judge can rule that restitution be made. Don't let them blow you off; again make sure the judge is aware not just the police and DA. I trusted the DA and my loss was never even mentioned (there were other thefts) and I had a $500.00 deductible I never saw again.

On a happier note , I have a tackle box of lures going back to the 1950s. If there are any old lures that you would like that can't otherwise be replaced give me a shout, I might have them. Free or $10,000 your choice.
