3 missing fisherman found/saginaw bay-michigan
« on: May 12, 2006, 07:14 PM »
all three bodies have now been found from the april 29th disappearance.they were prefishing a cat fish tourney here on saginaw bay when the wind came up and they were tossed apparently from the boat.they were in a 17ft bass boat.they found the boat which had not capsized.

they all left families behind.

just a reminder to be safe out there.

I coudnt agree more.

What anyone would be doing on a big body of water in a bass boat is beyond me. Why they were all thrown off is also beyond me. I'm guessing big wave maybe? Know your boats' limitations and respect the water. If you find yourself wondering if it's safe to go out, it's probobly not. Check the NOAA offshore forecasts before you go out, carry lifevests, flareguns, and have a cell phone AND radio on your boat. You can also monitor the NOAA channels for severe weather updates.
"I fish because I love to; because trout do not lie or cheat and cannot be bought or bribed or impressed by power, but respond only to quietude and humility and endless patience; because maybe one day I will catch a mermaid; and finally, not because I regard fishing as being so terribly important, but suspect so many other concerns of men equally unimportant- and not nearly so much fun."

That is really too bad.  The Great Lakes do deserve respect; a lot of people have died in them over the years.  Life vests, phones, radio, etc. can indeed save lives in situations like that.  My thoughts are with their families.
