Got a call about a lost Mason’s ring at a yacht club in 10-12ft of water. The person was securing his pontoon to the dock and the ring slipped off onto the abyss. He had worn the ring for the last 40 years and he planned to hand it down to his son in the future.
Joe searched on the internet in hopes of finding someone in the area that may be able to help find his lost ring from the lake bottom. He quickly found the Ring Finders site, and shortly after was on the phone with me, asking if I could help.
Made the arrangements, grabbed my dive gear out of storage, did some gear checks and got on the road to LaPorte.
Things were lookin bad right from the get go, really choppy conditions up top, and then who would have thought there would have been hundreds of unfired 22 and 357 rounds scattered everywhere under this boat slip, right in the core search area.
Since I never imagined so many targets in that small area, I didn’t bring my mesh finds bag, so after stuffing my wetsuit with the rounds, I was about to call it and arrange a future trip to try another recovery technique, but decided to try just a little longer… Good thing, literally on my last scan with the pinpointer I found the ring. Joe was a happy camper!
