    Default Lost and found in NJ: Fishermens' and other finds

    Thought it would be a good idea to post up some lost and found, or anything you see. Maybe we can help reunite some of these things with the owners.

    I lost my mind a few years ago. Does that count?

    Default Lost and found in NJ: Fishermens' and other items

    Over the weekend I talked to quite a few people who lost stuff. I felt bad for them. Thanks for starting this thread.

    Feel free to post it up, whether you know the person or just saw it posted somewhere else. The more places we can get this info out, the better the chances of getting it back To them.

    Default Lost tackle bag Point Pleasant, NJ

    Met a fisherman driving around looking for the owner. He brought the bag to the PP police station, but still wanted to get the word out to as many people as possible.

    If you or someone you know lost a bag in that area, call the Point Pleasant police. Describe the bag you lost and it's contents, if it's yours you'll get it back.

    Good karma to the guy who went above and beyond to try to return that bag to its owner.

    Default Found: Rod and reel combo

    G and I found it today when we fished S of PP in OC.

    It wasn't a high-end setup, but I'm sure whoever lost it is bummed out. For obvious reasons I can't give more details. We posted a note on my van with my phone # as we went fishin.

    However, no one called me yet, and I would really like to see this returned to it's rightful owner.

    If you can contact me via PM or e-mail and tell me the street you lost it on and the make of the rod and reel, I'll be happy to return it.

    If people read other message boards and want to post it up there as well, feel free. If I can't find the owner within 7-10 days, I'm gonna give it to someone I know who doesn't have much gear, or money to buy gear.

    So please get in touch with me before I do that. Thanks, people.

    Hey people I still have this rod and reel combo and would like to see it get back to its original owner. If anyone hears of someone who lost a combo south of Point Pleasant on 11/29 please let them or me know.

    Another 7 days and I'll be giving away to someone else, so I would really like to make sure no one is actively looking for it before I do. Thanks, all.

    I thought you had to hold it for 30 days before it becomes yours. At the end of the 30 I'll email you telling you it belongs to my long lost uncle Joe.

    Default Found: cell phone and fishermen's knife

    I found a cell phone and fishermen's knife after fishing this morning, Monmouth county, Raritan Bay.

    Phone: T-mobile
    Knife: fisherman's knife, name brand

    For obvious reasons I can't give more details. The phone looks like the battery died and may have some damage.

    However, I believe the phone contacts may still be able to be transferred or downloaded. I really want to get this back to it's owner. My phone took a dump last week and it was a bummer to lose my contacts. I can imagine how this guy must feel.

    Feel free to let anyone at any site out there know about this. If anyone can pm or e-mail me here at the site with details of the phone and knife, I'll do my best to get it back to ya ASAP.

    Default Lost fishing net.

    This was somewhere in Monmouth county today, in the afternoon, around 1pm. We and some others used it a few times to get our fish in, and realized as we went to leave that someone left it there.

    I can't describe it for obvious reasons. If you or someone you know lost one on today 5-2 in that area, e-mail me with a description.

    I would really like to see this net get back to it's rightful owner.
