Family's heirloom tackle boxes stolen at Emma Lake

A Warman family is hoping to get back two tackle boxes rich with family fishing memories stolen at Emma Lake.

Gear came from father and grandfather

It's a story with a hook.

Several, in fact. And Dale Liske is hoping for a happy ending.

Liske and his two sons were fishing near the Murray Point campground at Emma Lake this past long weekend. They left their rods and tackle boxes in their boat overnight.

The next morning, they returned to the dock and the gear was gone.

Dale Liske said the financial loss is one thing. But he said what really hurts is that the tackle boxes were passed down through the family. 

The boxes held a mix of lures bought by the kids' grandparents and hooks they bought themselves.

Liske said the boys are still emotional about the loss. They're hoping that the tackle boxes will be returned.
