I have my name and phone number on mine. I lost two yesterday in heavy waves, both were recovered. First caller said I wasn't getting it back (claimed salvage rights? Sure bud.). Second caller was gracious enough to return the board without taking the reward offered (which I advertise if returned). Thankfully we do have nice people out and about...and only a few smucks.

I don’t have a clue. Hard to figure out some people. My reward to a returned board is a very well known popular treat valued at $22.95! Go figure. Shines sell boards for $29.00

Now that first caller just needs a good old fashion a$$ whoopin. What a D bag!

The guy who called wanted to know what the reward was. I imagine when he told the boat owner (AKA cap't) the " Cap't said I'm not giving it back". Caller said Cap't claimed "salvage rights".

Amazing what and how people justify their actions! He was probably thinking you'd buy it back from him for what a new one costs and he'd make a quick $30! I lost a couple Walleye Boards this year and they had my name and phone number. No calls yet...Not holding my breath...Maybe that guy has them and decided to stop calling! LOL!

The one I found doesn't have a name or phone number.... How long should I wait to find an owner, and then what do I do with it? It isn't the brand that I use so I hate to see it just collecting dust.

Personally if someone doesn’t claim it with a description after 14 days I would put it on eBay or CL and sell it or give it to a friend. Use it for gas money. You tried your best.
