Capsized boat on the north side?

Does anyone know what happened with the capsized boat on the north side? We saw it capsized with stuff floating all over. Hope everyone was all right

Saw this boat also. Took awhile for the sheriff to get out there. It was up on shore by then. They must have to wait for the wind to calm down to get it out. Boat was still floating just motors and windshield sticking out of the water and all the boat equipment floating around. Scared my son a little, he thought we should go in. Would like to know what happened also.

I believe another boat went bottoms up earlier in the day on Saturday as well. Both boats were in the gap area. I think the combination of that SE wind and all the boat traffic in the gap created some swells that were a little tricky to navigate. Depending on the load in the boat and the way you take the wave it doesn't take much to send a bunch of water over a gunwale or transom. I hope everyone made it out of the lake with nothing more than a bad scare and a better respect for wind, waves and lifejackets.

From what I heard, that group was camping on the north shore somewhere and overloaded the boat with camping gear up front and was heading back to the landing. They took a wave over the bow and went down. I heard an uncle made a heroic grab and saved a nephew before he went under. It's amazing the number of guys that don't take the extra time to throw on a life jacket when the big lake is rockin'.

      Note to self.  Keep your "Packers Suck" T-shirt in the fishing boat for all future fish pics.   Ties are like head butts, everyone loses.

      And this is why you ALWAYS check out FM. I had a crazy busy summer as I worked full time so my weekends and evenings I was always doing somthing and I never just sat down. So I just noticed I missed this great “ goodie” package. Darn!

      A chain, a $20-$30 come-along and your set. Wrap chain around rafter hook up come- along and away you go. Been doing it this way for many many years without trouble.

      I'll say this. As a Vikings fan, Mrs. Skunked Again was pretty emotionally upset in the 2nd and 3rd quarters. She warmed up a bit when her team came roaring back in the 4th. I don't think either of us would have survived the four hour drive back to MN without a tie.

      Northern tool 1/2 ton chain hoist like 39.99 with gambrel works great.

      I just use a rope and pulley set up. way cheaper too...

      I'm looking to buy a hoist for hanging to skin deer in the garage for around $200 can any one recommend one?

      Wow, nice mix of fish too. Only a real fisherman will rub a Slimer and go right back to eating his chips! 😅
