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.

Mike

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!
    • JBMasterAngler
      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.

      It spit her out after the first bite..
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.

      What kind of hand auger and shape is it in
    • LBerquist
      Heard island lake was a hot spot. Any lure that resembles a small foot should work well.

      I'd go with 112 if you have the room more power and I believe last longer on the water. I pilot is worth it. Spot lock to fan cast an area or to stay outside the dock that you just got broke off of are two benifits. I pilot link links up with your hummingbird unit if that's what you have for a depth finder. Let's you follow depth contours. Good luck with the purchases
