Lake of the Woods rescue- Sat 9/2

Recommended Posts

curt quesnell

My Brother, his wife and two other couples went out on a

River Bend Charter on Saturday. After the first trolling

pass they noticed a boat nearby that seemed to be upside

down. As they looked closer they could see people in the

water bobbing around.

They got there as quickly as possible and pulled 6 people

out of the drink. 2 of them were kids, ages 5 and 8 both

had life jackets on. 4 adults, 3 of them were wearing life

jackets. They had been in the water for 20 minutes they thought.

Cooker from over at Arnesons was on loan to River Bend and

was the Captain of the rescue boat. Charter captains

help many people in peril every summer (and winter too).

These are guys out doing their job and they will stop

and help or make sure help is on the way every time.

The boat that capsized was a 24 foot WellCraft. Something

happened with the motor and it pumped the boat full of water

and nobody noticed until it was too late.

Nobody hurt badly so it was a happy ending of another

Lake of the Woods Adventure.

(Wear your life jackets, or at least have them handy)

I to was witness to the event after the boat had capsized and have to say all the time I have spent on the water at LOW I have never witnessed a boat sinking. It sure makes you think about what you would do if it happened out there so far from shore. Thankfully everyone involved was rescued unharmed! shocked.gif

The beginners crew would like to thank each one of you that assisted in our rescue and recovery of the boat. No words can say how greatful we are to have been helped by yous. We all did have our life jackets on thank god for that or we feel it wouldnt have turned out so well. All the personal belongings are replaceable FAMILY is not. THANK YOU ALL. Our hope for you is if you find yourself in a bad situation you have people around you like we did. GOD BLESS. THE BEGINNERS CREW.

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.

      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.

      Gulp spray seems to help also.

      I prefer ciscoes too.  I just don’t always have access to them.  They leave a better scent trail.  That’s part of the reason for a little kick of salt on the frozen suckers.  Anise could help too.

      Not that I know of. First time I used one and constantly had to clear the shavings and drill kept cutting out. Drill is a 1200# fuel.

      I always did best with frozen Cisco's suspended on a quick strike rig.

      I tried a few times during that 30 below weather. Saw nothing but thousands of wolf tracks. That night while we sat on the hunting shack deck having a cigar a pack of coyotes we're yipping out by our trucks 400 yds away. They were probably tipped off by our generator though and couldn't get them to come in. I did see 2 moose 30yds in front of me going into one calling spot. That was cool.

      Coon lake up 65 and off 22. Also Lake George. Both pretty good panfish populations to keep busy.

      Thanks for the replies guys. Usually target panfish and eyes so actually going for pike is kinda a whole new world to me. lol

      Lots of little sunnies there is a spring in there in the deepest spot be care full. There are better lakes in my opinion.
