So we are sitting on the lake in the ice house and its 12/13/07 and the other "guide from the metro" pulls out his phone to check the time. Its falls out of his hand into the hole and you can watch it on the fish finder go all the way to the bottom. So we put a small flashlight on a line down the hole and there is the phone sitting there on the bottom. So he gets down with a jigging spoon on his line and trys to hook it. He goes at it for about 15 minutes and he hooks it and pulls it up and out of the hole. Just so you know we are sitting in about 15 feet of water. When he pulls the phone out of the hole it is still working and searching for service. . .. I don't know how but it is still working. AMAZING>>>>>> tell me about your crazy ice stories.

i was with a couple of friends (some inexperenced) my buddy set his rod up and droped his line, then helped another buddy rig up. when he turned to check on his rod, he saw his rod being pulled down the hole. To make a long story short, we found the rod (with the fish on it) about 3 hours later on the aqua view. 8 holes later we finally snaged the rod and caught the fish

Well, you might not believe me but here we go... on the 2005 fishing opener my cell phone slipped out of my jacket pocket into the lake. I watched it hit the bottom in 12 feet of clear water. I thought it was done for sure so we kept fishing. After about 2 hours I decided to go back to the spot and get the phone. Maybe it's under warranty? I didn't know. Anyhow, I found the spot again and could see the phone sitting on the bottom of the lake. I stripped down to my boxers jumped in and got the phone. I dried it out for a few days and it would almost turn on. So I took it in to Verizon and they replaced the battery, under warranty, and that was all it took! The phone worked perfectly for the next year and half until I upgraded it!! I should have called LG and told them about it. I can't imagine all their phones would have the same result after being under water for 2 hours, but it makes for a good story.

I have an I580 that was in water at NW metro area lake launch for about 10 minutes this spring. Dove down in power loading 6-8" deep hole and finally found it. Took it home and drained water out of some area's and dismantled as far down as I could and let it sit under a bulb style work lamp for 24 hours. Reassembled and I works to this day. I always thought speaker phone suffered a little bit, but most times it works great.

I just bought the thing a month or two before and did not buy insurance. I did not want to pay for a new phone and just started a new contract.

I would say, the first thing to do, is shut if off. Then remove battery and panels and try to drain as much water out at first. Head home and take apart and dry with blow dryer or heat lamp.

I was the one that dropped my phone in last night fishing with the metroiceguide and the funny thing is that its the second time that its has happened to me, and the second time I got it back. I guess I have bad luck with that (or maybe good luck?). My first one that got dropped in worked for like 6 months after it got dumped in before I got another. This one is one of verizon's g'zone type V phones so its waterproof to 3 feet but it was about 15 feet down. I got to give credit to this phone cause its been in the washing machine for a cycle too. What an interesting end to a night fishing though.

i know a guy that keeps his pepermint schnaaps floating in an extra hole to keep it just the right temperature. a few years back, he gets settled into his spot, takes the bottle out and sets in the hole only to see it sink right to the bottom. i guess maybe putting half empty bottles in the hole instead of full ones would be a good idea.

Option "B"

Shake out the water ASAP.

Remove battery and memory card if installed, shake it some more.

Heat oven to 170 degrees

While oven is heating up, shake more water out of cell phone if you didn't do it already, do it some more anyway.

DO NOT USE COMPRESSED AIR! IT WILL DESTROY THE LCD.

Place phone on plate in heated oven, cook for an hour or so until done, remove plate and phone, let cool.

Replace battery's and memory card.

Works on cameras to, but you may have a fogged display for a while.

Note: It only works a couple times and then the afore mentioned device will start to deteriorate.

Above directions tested numerous times by me, MSRD, on cel phones and a Canon camera and it has worked for me more times than I'll admit. Good luck, my thought has been "I got nothing to lose, it's already trashed"

Nor will admit or be responsible if it still don't work for ya.

i have had a cell phone go through the wash on 2 different occasions and still work. eventually i upgraded to a nicer phone and of course when i dropped that one in a lake for about 5 seconds in 2 feet of water it stopped working. Now i am back to using the phone that went through the wash 2 times and it still is working perfectly fine and its over 4 years old.

I was in my portable with 2 holes drilled. I dropped my wallet into one of the holes and it sunk. I was sitting there upset when a large carp came to the surface in one of the holes. A second carp with my wallet in its mouth come up out of the second hole. They tossed my wallet back and forth a few times then tossed it to me.

It was the first time I had ever seen carp to carp walleting.

      The Great Lakes Compact Council and the Great Lakes Regional Body are seeking public feedback on draft updates to the procedures for reviewing requests to divert water from the Great Lakes Basin. The compact is federal law that governs the use of water in the Great Lakes watershed. The compact council and regional body are accepting comments through June 21, at 4:30 p.m.  Under the compact, diversions of water out of the Great Lakes-St. Lawrence River Basin are generally prohibited. However, the compact identifies limited circumstances under which diversion may be allowed. In some instances, before a diversion proposal can be approved, it must undergo review by the regional body and may require approval by the compact council. The draft updates are strictly procedural and would not modify the compact’s basic terms. The compact council is composed of the governors of the eight states that border the Great Lakes. The regional body includes the eight governors on the council plus the premiers of Ontario and Quebec. The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources is Gov. Mark Dayton’s delegate to both groups and provides data and water management expertise to assist implementing the compact. The effort to refine the procedures under the compact follows the states’ and provinces’ first experience reviewing a diversion request under the agreement. Reflecting on that experience and feedback from stakeholder groups, the states and provinces concluded that some aspects of the procedures should be clarified or refined. Following discussions with key stakeholders and tribal interests, the states and provinces developed the draft updates that were released for public review May 22. The updates include these changes: Expands opportunities for the public to participate at hearings and public meetings. Acknowledges the special status of First Nations and federally recognized Tribes through separate meetings with them and granting standing to contest compact council decisions. Identifies circumstances under which an additional public comment period would be offered between issuance of the regional body’s declaration of finding and the compact council’s final decision. Essentially, if the compact council views the regional body’s modifications to the applicant’s diversion proposal as substantial, the council would take public comment prior to making its final decision. The existing public comment opportunity prior to the regional body’s deliberations would remain. After considering public input received by June 21, the regional body will revise the draft procedural updates this summer. The compact council will then consider the updates and decide whether some or all of them should be adopted through rulemaking. The draft updates are available at www.glslcompactcouncil.org/PUT-DraftUpdates.aspx. This website includes instructions for sharing feedback. The public input process includes an in-person opportunity to share feedback in Duluth on June 21 at Fitger’s Inn at 10:30 a.m. Documents are also available on the regional body website. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      I'm camping out on echo lake next week. Any tips or fishing info would be great.
    • brrrr
      explore with a shallow water boat, there are a few big boulders in there,and lots of gravel bars.   
    • Getanet
      It sure is.  I know you can camp on Kabetogama, Rainy, Namakan and Sandpoint through the National Park Service. For someone who's never been (or only once) do you guys recommend one lake over the others?  Sort of the "if you can only visit one lake, make sure its ______"
    • TheEyesofanAngler
      it actually was renamed from my understanding, but its easier for me to go with the old name.. i definitely would want to head out there. Thanks wanderer for the feedback. might've been the push i needed to go wet the lines next week. 
    • Satchmo
      Getanet, Most folks the first week or so did very well on the west end this year. It is a huge area with a lot of structure options. There are weed beds, sand flats, rubble shorelines, and creek inlets, just to name a few.The 5-15ft depths brought a lot of fish too big to keep. The keepers were in the 15-25ft range.  Evening movements can bring all sizes of fish shallow. This year, minnows were definitely the bait of choice. It's all about location, location, location. In general the best approach is to run and gun. Stay no more than 10-15 minutes in a spot, and then move to then next.  If the fish are there, they  are generally active. Stick with, and sooner or later, you'll get rewarded.  VNP really is an amazing place.
