Very cool of you to put in the effort to return it. :toast

Are you the AWOL with the Cape Horn named AWOL? I think it's a 21 with a tower...if so you got a nice looking ride.

There's gotta be a story behind that. Did you fall asleep, or set the hook so hard it jerked out of your hand?

I bet the turtle is grateful also. That is just to wild. Well now maybe someone will find my brand new Costa's I lost in the drink a year ago.:D

We need the Paul Harvey on this story..... I can imagine some funny stuff here, but I bet it's pretty boring. In either case, we've just got to know!

Ok here is the story from start to finish, fisrt off, thank you for being an honest fisherman. We were on a 17ft cape horn. when we started out fishing it was nice (1 to 3ft maybe) then as the day goes on it gets a little rougher (4 to 6ft). Now we start heading back in. We had the rod laying on the back of the boat all day with an eel swimming in the buckett ready to throw at a cobe. Not even thinking we start running in and basically the rod bounced out of the boat. It happened really fast, we turn around and try to look for it but it was just to deep. Anyways, thank you AWOL for being the honest fisherman that you are.
