Default Missing anglers LOTW

http://www.ckdr.net/news/1689645644/...issing-anglers


Provincial Police are searching for two missing anglers on the south end of Lake of the Woods.
The two were last seen on a boat near Fadden's Island on Tuesday.
OPP are searching for a silver 16-foot Alumamarine boat with a 25 horsepower Yamaha motor.
The first man is 43-years-old, about 6-foot-3, 230-pounds, wearing camo overalls, a blue rain jacket, a red hoodie and brown boots.
The second man is 75-years-old, wearing a camo snow suit, with green boots and an orange hat.
The OPP Marine and Trails Unit and the OPP Emergency Response Team have been dispatched to the area, with air support on its way pending weather conditions.
Anyone with information, contact OPP at 1-888-310-1122 or 807-548-5534.

Thoughts & prayers go out but at some point people have to be smart enough not to challenge mother nature. 16' boat with a small outboard on a lake as big as LOTW when the winds blows is not a good place to be.

Not much info in the above story, there has to be more to it than that. More details might help others in a similar situation, or to be able to avoid the experience. Maybe

I agree, but unless someone that has first hand knowledge chimes in, we will probably never know the whole story.

I'd "assume" there are only a few ways to be "stranded". Mechanical failure, ran out of fuel, got lost. At least they were found.

About three years ago two guys from our area drowned on LOW. OPP suspected that their anchor got stuck and both tried to pull it and rolled the boat over. Anchor and fishing tackle found on the bottom near where their bodies were found. That's what filtered back to a friend of mine who knew them.

This incident had a fortunate outcome.

From what I have heard, they were lost. (staying at Buena Vista). They were able to make a phone call, and describe where they were... near a red buoy and a brown cabin.

They spent the night out on an island. Not sure if they managed to get into the cabin for shelter or not. I assume they did.

There were a ton of people looking, including other lodges trying to pitch in to help out.

From the pictures Skywagon sent me the other day, winter is at hand in the area. Those boys had a cold night out in the open. Hope they were dressed well and had some way to make a fire. I wish them well.
