    they are searching for a person who's capsized boat was found last night.
     
  2. I don't think the boat was flipped, they found it drifting out in the middle of the lake empty with all the guy's stuff in it.

    Tim called me yesterday morning and let me know what was going on. I would have gone out to help them out, but I was already out fishing the SSA Silver Lake catfish outing.

    Very sad story. The family and everyone involved is in my prayers.
     

  3. Bummer I always hate to hear about this kinda stuff.

    turns out that i actually know the mans daughter. really sad story, and i heard the boat was flipped on the 8 am news on 97.5
     
  5. Yeah, it is sad. I was out there today covering the story for tonight's news on TV 3 and 23. The main story will be on TV23 at 6:30.

    I posted a call for help for the family in the Lounge. They're asking for help in searching for the man, Gary Riffle is his name.

    Contact Tim at Long Lake Bait and Tackle. He's organizing the search.

    Also, say a prayer for the family if you would. They sure could use the support. Thanks.

    I voluntered the search yesterday afternoon. I was disapointed at the small amount of help. 1 Sherrif boat and about 5 other boats. I will be back out there after work this afternoon.

    that would be one hell of a lake to fall into.if you
    fell out of your boat and right into one of those weed
    mats,i seriously doubt you could get out on your own. :(

    Sad to hear this. If I were closer, and/or had more time, I would help out. I hope you guys can find him.
     
  9. Sad news, they found the fellow that fell out of his boat. What a tradgedy. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family, and his fellow fishing friends. Be careful out there guys.
     
  10. A sad day for family and friends. Be careful out there guys and gals look out for one and another. Safety first fish is second.

    I heard he had a heart attack and was gone before he hit the water. It really doesn't matter how it happened but if (when) I go I hope it's doing something I loved.
