A Shout Out About Boat Wakes

Pool 26 of the Mississippi River

Dardenne Slough


Hi Bill.
Just wondering if you could give a shout out to all the Big Boaters out there about their wakes.

We are up on the Dardenne Slough across from Dardenne Island. This year has been the worst for wakes in my five years here at this property.

15 Docks have been damaged from all these 40 plus ft boats plowing water. And most of these docks have been here for years and gone thru flood after flood. They make thru the winter ice, but not these monster boat wakes.

So far no one has been hurt yet.

What ever you can do will be appreciated....

Lake Texoma Near Pottsboro, Texas

17 Boats Destroyed In Dock Blaze........


Wednesday morning, a substantial dock fire destroyed 17 boats docked at U Dock at Highpoint Marina on Lake Texoma.  Officials believe the blaze may have been touched off by a spark created by someone working on a boat.


On Thursday afternoon, the Grayson County Sheriff's Office reported that the Texas State Fire Marshal's Office was investigating the blaze, and investigators received information that the fire was started by a spark from someone working on a boat located on U Dock.


Firefighters from several nearby departments responded to the blaze and fought the flames for the better part of the day.  The fire was contained to the single boathouse and out of the twenty boats, three were saved........

Mississippi River Near Red Wing, Minnesota

Car Missing Since 1976 Recovered From The River........


On Thursday, a car that had been missing since 1976 was recovered from the Mississippi River near Red Wing, Minnesota.  Divers began the salvage operation at 7 am and had the car out of the water by 3 pm.


The car had been spotted back in May when Police were testing new sonar equipment.  The recovery effort was delayed two months by high water conditions.  Police used the time to coordinate with the Coast Guard to secure the high-traffic area, as well as training their divers to navigate in the heavy current.


Officials were not able to identify the car until it was raised.  Once on dry land, Police were able to run the front license plate and identify the car as belonging to David Jorgenson, who went missing in 1976.  Jorgenson's body had been found in May of 1976, close to 9 miles from where the car was found........

Fishy Tales From Island Lake, Minnesota

Girl Recovering After Leg Mauled By Fish........


10 year old Maren Kesselhon is recovering after getting bitten by a fish in Minnesota's Island Lake.  On Wednesday, Maren was being pulled on a paddleboard behind a boat driven by her father, and she decided to take a quick dip.


Maren says she jumped into the water because it was hot.  Moments later, she felt movement in the water, and then her whole foot was in the fish's mouth.  She had to be taken to the hospital for treatment for 25 bites.  She took nine stiches and had to have a tendon repaired.


Reportedly, Maren's dad Ryan and others thought that perhaps the child had been bitten by an otter.  Later they determined that the attacker was a fish, likely a muskie........
