How many others have donated their phones to the fishing hole?

I leaned forward to take a fish off and BLOOP! Watched it drop all the way down to the bottom on my flasher. I learned the hard way that talking on the phone and fishing isn't a good combo haha.

Today was my first time fishing in saginaw. I had never caught a walleye in my entire life until today. Didn't catch a single keeper but landed about 30 eyes and 4 perch. The 2 biggest ones were 12" and 13". I was just south of the Z-Bridge in 25FOW.

Thanks Don for taking me out and showing me somewhere to fish the river. Shoulda stayed and fished with me, no big ones but non-stop action.

If you have deeper pants pockets you don't hafta worry about it.

I watched this dudes boost mobile phone glow on the bottom for a good half hour.. :evil:
Oh I have deep pockets but it was pinched to my ear with my shoulder. Watching it slowly drop to the bottom on the sonar was priceless....All I could do was laugh.

My buddy got a kick out of it. He said he could hear a splash in the phone and then everything thing went silent. When it went straight to voicemail after trying to call me back, he knew exactly what had happened.....Hope those fishys aren't using up all my minutes

One phone in the saginaw river, and a brand new battery operated lantern in Higgins lake. The lantern actually got tangled in my line about halfway down and I was able to get up about 30 feet before it tumbled the rest of the way down. Could see the light for about 30 minutes.

I think I'd cry if I lost my sonar down the hole...

dropped my old nextel phone in the betsie river one time while fighting a salmon, lost the fish, reached down and picked up the phone and it still worked like a charm. But i've never lost anything down the hole of any real importance..... Take that back, one time, whle trying to open a beer, the damn thing slipped right out of my hands and down the hole. It just happened so fast..... I'm glad i had more, cause if i remember correctly it was a dismal outing, catching wise, despite the peace offering/sacrifice :D

Yeah I'm right there with ya brother... lost my one week old iphone 4 tonight in st clair! I watched the backlight stay on at the bottom of the lake for about a minute, i was trying to tie my gaff up to a line and try and hook the case, light went out before i could even get the gaff tied to one of my poles. it was already dark out at that point so I couldnt see it at all. I'll be paying full price for a new one in the morning! There goes $500. Had it sitting on the chair in my frabill flip over, u gotta tilt the chair forward to unhook it from the sled and sure enough my phone was sitting on the seat and slid right in like it was planned!

Don't worry about your phone. He'll have plenty of company down there. The wife has banned me from taking my phone fishing with me when I fish anymore after losing 6 phones over the course of about as many years. :yikes:& yes 1 found the bottom of the Sag

Lost a couple myself, one in the Bay. Recently I took one with me into a pool in Florida. Some Woman seen me jump up on the edge of the pool with it in my hand. She suggested that I shake the water out and put it in a bag of dry white rice and leave it there for a day or two. So I tried it and so far (10 days now) it is still working like new. I don't know if it will eventually corrode inside and quit, but for now it is working. Of course you have to be able to retrieve it to put it a bag of rice, but it's something to think about if it should happen to you.
