We received a call from an individual that had a rather odd request as the item lost was not jewelry, it was a very special one-of-a-kind, specially made fish filet knife that meant more to her husband than any of his other knives. It was a 40th yr anniversary present, none like any other he’d ever received. Magnet-fishing attempts to retrieve the knife from the 13-15 ft water depth were unsuccessful as the lake bottom held the support beams for their boathouse which was metal also. Since the magnet-fishing did not work we were then contacted for help. After deciding on a date/time for us to come out and dive for the knife, we loaded up all of the scuba equipment and headed to Lake Bridgeport, TX. This fun hunt was cut short because the item was found within 10 minutes of being in the water. The act of suiting up in the scuba gear and submerging into the water took longer than the actual find. Now the knife is back on dry land where it belongs and we have a couple of very happy friends.
