Default Dive, Dive, Dive. Who Needs Gold?

All I seem to be doing every day since my daughter put me on Facebook. At least twice a day. Cell phones, sunglasses, anchors, boat parts, dock parts, fishing equipment. WOW. Went on one dive today, will be going on another at 5. Cell phone already. Sunglasses later.



My two grandsons with the I-phone I recovered today in 18 foot of water in this pond.

Good deal. The scuba guys at the lakes around here do pretty well diving for people's lost stuff.

Well it turned out worse than I thought. Got the sunglasses in a few minutes. Went to my boat and as soon as I pulled up to the bow the phone rings. A marina 4 miles away the back door to the boat. Told them I would be right there. Went in and got the door in 15' of water. BUT, as soon as I jumped in and came up some folks yelled to me. Asked if I was going in for fun or was I hired. I told them I was hired. They asked me to find some keys. I told them sure, right after I got the door. Got it and then went for the keys. Got them and my total for today was 240.00. Not a bad day at all.

Got back to my marina and took the kids out to Muscamoot bay. Played for a little and I found a quarter. Ate and just got home. We had fun.

Thanks for the comments. They are good kids.

Absolutely Tom. I ask for air and gas. My time is free. Gas both ways and 7.00 for air. Do the math and send me the cash. I will be more than happy to come get it for you. Tell you what. I will give you all the air I use free of charge since you are a friend on here. Great deal!

Huh ? What ? That old Zebco close-faced dime store fishing rod/reel was only $9.99 then. And now, with salt water rot, isn't worth anything now ! So you should be paying ME to come fetch it now. Tsk tsk tsk.

Left for Mackinac yesterday and went camping at Straits State Park in the upper peninsula. Went to Mackinac Island today and on the way home got a call of another set of keys drowning in a marina. I went and got them and just got home. Had a great time. Thanks for the comments. I did come home to 6 more emails of lost stuff including a 30 horse outboard! Stay tuned!!



Canon outside of fort on Mackinac Island. The fort is on top of a hill that I just couldn't go up unfortunately. I was very disappointed.

I guess he was trying to re-install it and kicked it off his swim platform. I was feeling all over the bottom with my hands and it was actually standing up! It was plastic and I saw it in front of me before I stirred up the silt where it was.
