Where do I start:
Capsized the boat on Duck Lake this mornig(Scanoe). in the middle and need some help recovering my items. I got two bags of decoys that floated to the south and a backpack. Spinner out there somwhere on the bottom.
Started out doing great, low waves and moving slow, got to the middle and the wind picked up, turned to the right to head to shore and the boat flipped on a big wave..#$@%@$#. Reached for the guns, untied the dog, grabbed the blindbag(survival items) just glad we could reach the bottom..water was above our waist and waves were slapping us in the face. Before we could grab the decoy bagsx2 and backpack they were 30 yards and moving toward the far end. Shellshocked the both of us, dog was trying to climb on us for cover..man it sucked. buddy grabbed all he could and went for shore over 1/4 mile away. I stayed and tried to recover the boat and motor but could not in the winds. Hiked to the canal and that along took over 3 hours. Later a guy came buy and let us use his phone to make call for recovery. I could see he was on a mission for some geese as they had been flying all around us all morning. Told him we were walking back to the boat ramp at RS and he stated he would pick us up on the way back if he saw us. (Our buddy showed up about 4 hours later trolling down the canal about 3/4 to the cross over area. what a sight that was to see. Long story short,,,bad waterfowling day..and I have a boat and motor that I need to recover. I need some help if someone can assist me tomorrow. I dont have another engine for my 14ft aluminum boat or 10ft zodiac or I would go and recover these items myself. I have to get back and get my motor and boat no matter what. I marked it on the gps before I left it and more than likely the boat is still poking its head out of the water as it was when I left. Was hard to do ..but went to survival mode and had to save ourselves and the dog. Hell, even dragged it for 50 yards before I was SMOKED! and had to walk away. If anyone is out there this weekend..I would appreciate it if you could pick up my decoys and backpack, (they floated straight toward the back. If you came from the cabin/crossover area and headed straight back you will find them. PM me and I will give you my phone number. Man this sucks,,Thanks guys and if anyone can help. PM me and I will send you my number. This baby is going to stay on all night.
I would like to get out there as soon as possible but was planning on shooting for around 10 as I hate to ruin anyones hunt while recovering my stuff.
