    Hypothermia can happen quickly, I remember a few years back at being at Pyramid and we visited at friend who was fishing the nets on a ladder. He came in to talk to us and was hypothermic. I helped him into his truck after he stripped off his waders and he was soaked. He did not realize how bad his condition was. I just think they all three were exposed. If you dip a leg or get your feet wet you can be exposed because the cold does not go away and your blood pumps cold to your core and causes hypothermia to set in...….Jetspray

    Tony is a pretty strong fella, he and his friend Jim went back a couple of days later and fished the north end. Tony is a long time resident of Nevada. It is just sad that sort of thing happens, I too feel for their families loss.....Jetspray

There is no question about the result even if you have a PFD on or not, you need rescue and you need immediate attention for hypothermia, or end of story...…..Jetspray

    The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office has identified those involved involved in a fatal boating accident that happened Saturday at Topaz Lake.

    The deceased have been identified as Burt Pederson of Sparks. Jesse Gregory, also of Sparks, remains missing as of late Sunday morning as is presumed to have drowned.

    Scott Wise was also involved in the accident, in which the boat they were in capsized, was taken Carson Valley Medical Center. Wise was released from CVMC after treatment.


    They found the second guy today in 22' of water.

I personally do not like liquids because they are mostly ketchup based or tomato based, so I like most of the dry rubs or anything without the ketchup base...…..Jetspray

    My question of the whole incident who was the owner of the plastic boat and ultimately responsible for the loss of life, I pay a bunch of cash for the insurance and responsibility of my boat. I have a 750 limit on my boat, myself I weigh 330 lbs, my kicker is about 140 lbs, that leaves me with 280 and I have extra gear in the boxes, so I can only fish with one other person and their gear......Jetspray
