LOST BOAT

11 posts in this topic

I went up to the lake friday and much to my surprise my duck boat floated away. I leaned it against the pontoon lift on dry ground but the lake rose at least 2 ft. and floated it away.

It is 14" aluminum plain duck boat, peeling brown paint. My neighbor is a pilot and he brought me up in is plane to search but we did not see it. Hopefully someone grabbed it and is holding it.

Anybody see a boat on Lawerence lake north of Grand Rapids or hear of anyone finding one please get a hold of me. As of right now my season is over.

Hi Mike,

I believe my father has your boat. One washed up on his property and he called the sheriff, was waiting for someone to claim it.

I am having problems with your mail so email me at vikeswinthebowl@hotmail.com

Bottomdweller,

I sent you an e-mail.

That would be great if your Dad has it.

Kinda ruined my weekend of Duck hunting. I can describe some of the characteristics that nobody else would know to identify it.

Thanks,

Mike

Bottemdweller,

I called your father and it sounds like he has my boat.

Thanks so much for stepping up.

The POWER of this sight is amazing.

      What a novel concept!  Talking fishing on a fishing forum to increase interest and activity.  You may be right, it could work!  
    • leech~~
      So let me see if I understand this? You guys on the last page or so are going to "Lets Save This Forum" by high jacking the thread and talking fishing now!     Dam that could just work? Carry-on!   Good Luck.

      Thanks guys for the tips looks like 3-4inch stick bright stick baits and bright spoons seem to be the go to.  Anybody ever vertical fish them or live bait? Hope the weather is.good next friday, i have always wanted to get out there and try it.  Bonus is the wife would be happy with some fresh salmon.

      I have been looking at the gages this morning and the L.F. still appears to be either frozen or have an ice jam at the most downstream gage in Little Fork. The discharge is not working but the water level has risen 3' since Sunday. The next upstream gage however is flowing good and has risen from 1,200cfs to 5,000+cfs since Sunday and has risen 8' in the same period. The Big Fork doesn't have cfs data so I am thinking its frozen but the height has risen 2.5' since Sunday. I would think with that flow and the warm weather it's only a matter of days until they both go.   Other trips like the Black River and Rapid River are all on the rise both cfs and height.   Also, I took a look at the Rainy at Manitou Rapids and it has risen about 2' and has gone from 14,000 cfs to 17,500 cfs since Sunday.
