Ring found and returned — Matlacha
I went fishing over the weekend and lost my wedding ring in somewhat of a freak accident. I was stung by a wasp reaching into a bucket. When I pulled my hand out abruptly, my ring went flying off my hand into the water of Matlacha FL. As I was out before sunrise, I did no see where the ring landed exactly.
I spent the remainder of that day diving and searching for the ring on the 4-5 foot grass flat that I had lost it in. With no luck, I marked the spot on the GPS on my boat and headed in. When I returned home, my wife had found Craig and his wife online through a quick search in Google. I immediately contacted Craig and he agreed to come out and search for the ring the following day after work (2 days after I had lost the ring).
I picked Craig and his wife up at the local boat ramp on my boat and headed into Matlacha Pass. The water was calm with about a 5mph west wind. Having quite the storm the evening before, I was skeptical that we would even have a chance at finding the ring with the current and wind pushing the water around. When we arrived at the grass flat where I had lost the ring, I anchored directly center of my GPS mark as best I could and Craig jumped in the water. I kid you not, less than 5 minutes later he pulled the ring out of the chest deep water. It had embedded itself in the mud and he was able to quickly locate it with his metal detector. Stunned, and in awe I couldn’t believe what I had just witnessed.
Craig and his wife were both very down to Earth, and great people to chat with. They treasure hunt as a hobby and really enjoy helping people locate their lost items. I cannot thank them both enough for finding my wedding ring. My only regret was that I quit recording Craig searching for the ring too soon. Another minute or so and I would have had him on camera finding the ring!
Thank you both again for everything!
