Hey all, Was fishing in my small pontoon boat on Sunday at Cherry Creek. My boat was a little low on air and so I had to go to east swim area shore and put my tolling motor and battery by some bushes so I could continue to fish and use my fins. When I got back, the motor was gone (battery was still there). Lost and found doesn't have it. Thought maybe someone thought it was abandon. I believe it was a prowler model (Bass Pro brand). If anyone knows anything, would much appreciate getting it back.
Thanks all and tight lines!
P.S. Two keeper walleyes by the dam using bottom bouncer with crawler harness!
Like hp I worry about leaving my boat at the dock to go get my truck. Like I said in another recent post there's a reason I don't frequent lakes such as cherry creek. Too bad but it's the reality. They steal stuff there even when it's locked in your vehicle.

No it's not just around the metro area as we had a tackle box stolen right off our boat while tied up to the dock at Wolford last year. I would suggest keeping your gear secured and stowed away whenever possible and be on the lookout.
Thanks to all, yes it does suck, I'm sorry too to hear about all the others that have had similar situations. We work hard, we buy stuff for our hobbies, and hope that people are decent. I don't want to become a cynical person who doesn't trust anyone, but the world keeps showing me I need to keep my guard up.
So, where the heck are the rangers??? They seem to be around to easily check your license or car sticker. If I were one of them, I would delight in catching a thief and the owner of the stolen stuff would surely give them an atta boy. Oh, right, it's cooler in the AC'd patrol car this time of year.

t's terrible that someone took it, but seriously, you somehow are blaming rangers for not catching someone walking off with a trolling motor that was left unattended in the bushes? I think we are stretching the, blame the rangers mentality a bit.
