Lake: Cherry Creek Reservoir

Tolling motor walked away

Post By: fishingBB      Posted: 7/22/2019 9:11:45 AM     Points: 47    
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!

You shoulda hidden and watched. Whoever took the motor was probably going to return for the battery.
Unless it was too far to carry 50#.

In my opinion, any location on the front range is not safe to leave anything. Cities just breed that hard up thing for stealing.

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.

I have lost trust in the general population all together.

Even if it's locked up... someone will steal it.

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.

That right there is why I'm glad I don't live in the city. Sorry for your lost.

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.

Thanks again to all, tight lines!

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.

On the theft topic... If you have not seen this video about the guy that made the glitter bomb with fart spray... you should! Its genius, and you get to watch thieves be miserable...

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.

"So where the heck were the rangers" . . .don't ask that question,till you walk a mile in their shoes! The rangers got their plates full!
