Probably a long shot, but I capsized my kayak on Saturday. I lost everything in it including my phone, its an iPhone promax, should be waterproof and itís also in a waterproof pelican case. I also lost a Saint Croix ultralight fast action rod with a black Revo reel, and a gopro 7, a hat, and glasses. They will most likely be in between the Rocky point and the dam perpendicular to the second black marker on the Dam road. Most of the things that sank are pretty heavy and will probably go straight to the bottom, Except maybe my pole hat and glasses. Somewhere around N38į59.278, W105į53.800. The depth should be around 12-14 feet. If you find anything please email email@example.com, facebook @ stephen juarez, instagram @ leopardinacage, or contact michelle arcaro @ 8327972754
I Have read on the website that diving is prohibited...wading is too however and i see people wading all the time. Diving would be easy once the wind dies down for a week or so and lets everything settle, i have all the gear, small tank, wetsuit, wing...does anyone know what actually happens if they catch someone diving prohibited waters? Again its only 10-14 feet... And the other gopro is a great idea, i think that works up to 30ft if you can keep the connection,im definitely going to look into that since i still have everything for my gopro, just not the go pro lol. My plan ĎCí is to wait until ice season and poke a bunch of holes....thats just a ways away and not ideal...

I experimented to a little with it while I was icefishing last year and I had the same problem but I thought it was because of the thickness of the ice being 16 inches. I might have to find a cheap Aquaview or something

I sangged some debris, with a shirt in the mix, Once I got the treble hooks out of the shirt I had To turn around and put my pole back in the holder and thatís when the wave came and It just push me over my center of balance. I tried to collect everything and put it back on my kayak and then jump back on my kayak but another wave knocked me off again as i got up, so i grabbed my yak, looked for the dam and swam. I fully understand the risks of going out to South Park, I also know the rewards. Im am excellent in the water and never go out without a vest. The reward makes it worth it, however accidents do happen. Thatís why this forum is here for us, to help each other out when that unexpected happens.
Right on man! The reason I asked is because me and a buddy where fishing Antero and he was in a kayak. He had such a vicious bite that his fly rod almost curled around the bottom of his boat and then snapped. But what was impressive was when the wind picked up and we went back to shore. He looked like the guys in Hawaii-Five-O paddling into the waves 🌊 to get back!
I hate to be the old guy singing the same old song but............
To help protect your gear here in Southpark or anywhere else On the water use floats. My iPhone cost about $600 I have a floating case that wraps and protects it from going under, it costs $6.00 a no brainer. All of my rods, spin as well as fly have rod floats on them, Iíve never lost one and I fish two on my pontoon all the time. The floats are about $3.00 Bill
I hope you find your stuff. I have a few of these net tethers. Everything goes in my bag and then I clip it to a ring on my kayak. Bag and net go between my legs. Luckily Iíve only gone over once and my bag was still floating a bit, but it wouldnít have taken long for it to sink.
