Up bear Mud and the steel mill. 14 foot alum. Guy were in the water and hear somebhad feet tangled in lines. Not sure if that was fushing.lines or boat lines. All people were guickly pulled out if the water from nearby fishermen. The boat was towed in by them as well.
Talk was a boat wake upset said boat. Not clear if it was a wake from another fisherman or a freighter. Lots of assumptions on FB. All involved are safe and ok.
I meant a similar event. Another 12 or 14' aluminum boat. Last one was blue?
Way too small for the river, jmo.glad every one is okay.
It was me and buddys who saved these guys it was pretty scary they was freezing panicking and no life vest. They had a bunch of ropes in boat and tangled around there legs .I honestly think if we didn't help when we did the older gentleman would have drown he couldn't hold on much longer . If your gonna fish in smaller vessels u have to wear a life vest u never know what's gonna happen .a freighter came through yesterday throwing the biggest wake iv ever seen .Glad I was there to help it messed our fishing up for 3 hours so what saved to guys life I was surprised at how many boats around who didn't reel in lines and come help .I know if it is ever them in need there gonna want the same help .Hopefully got some good karma coming our way this week on the D.
Great job sluggo. Maybe we should start calling the coast guard and giving them the ship name and location when one of those freighters are flying along. Maybe call them today and report this capsize or post it to the coast guard website. Again great job to anyone involved in the rescue.
It was a Canadian steamship he came back down river a hour later or one exactly like it going much slower with normal wake . His 1 st pass was literally the fastest and biggest waves iv ever seen on that river bouncing of seawalls for next 15 minutes !
