Thank you sir!
Racine Harbor, Racine County
To the boater that found they had lost their motor support when they got to the launch. The support came off while you were on Wisconsin Avenue in Racine. I saw it come off and went to get it for you but the casting was completely shattered.
I am sorry that it has taken me this long to express my sincere gratitude and thanks from what happened last Friday 5/26/17 about 0530. I was going out with a friend of mine Dave. We launched the boat and I parked the truck and trailer. I was walking down to where Dave was with the boat. Down the concrete walkway thinking what a great day it was and would be on the water catching Cohos. My right foot hit the dew covered steel plate and I went down hard. Dave yelled from the boat if I was okay. I yelled back that I wasn't sure that I needed to do a quick assessment. When I looked at my right foot it was pointing in the wrong direction,I yelled back no I'm not. Things are fuzzy after that point in time but I do remember everyone at the launch stopped what they were doing and came to help Dave get me back into his truck and load his boat. I want to thank everyone who was there and helped. The end result is my right tibia has a severe spiral fracture. I had surgery Saturday at St Luke's an open reduction with internal fixation. I was discharged Monday and have been using a walker. I haven't been outside yet and am going stir crazy. Again thanks to everyone there. I will try to attach some x-rays but I'm not real good at it. Fishermen are the best group of people that I have met.

Fished in 180 to 200 fow went 11 for 11 in 4 hours. 3 and 5 color lead with spoons did most of the work. A couple on dodgers and flies. Lake was dead calm. Awesome day on the water! Time spent fishing is not deducted off of one's life span.
