I can go get him. Im in Covington will take me an hour or so to get the boat hooked up and get down there. I need to know what part of the lake he is on. I have trouble getting under low bridges.

Hey guys thanks for the reply's. I texted my wife and she sent the message. What a day my cell phone died, I spent an hour chasing down 10 jugs in the water with the paddle. Started paddling for the marina and the paddle broke in half. Then the wind started blowing me back out away from the marina. Got to the bank and heres what really ticked me off. A Glitter boat pulled up 60 feet from me and I thought he was going to help. Then I heard the splash of a lure 20 feet from my boat. Nice. He dropped his trolling motor and headed down the bank without so much as a word. I figured the motor out of the water and the cowl off was a give away as to my condition. Either way a fellow catfisherman saw me and came to help.
I forgot to open the vent on the gas tank and when it quit running I noticed the bulb was completely flat. Opened the vent got fuel back to the engine and it would only fire on one cylinder. I guess it pulled trash in the carb and stopped it up

Who needs sea-tow when we have GON! Maybe we should put a voluntary list of those closest to the lakes who are willing to help out a fellow GON brother (or sister!)? I would be willing to go on the list to help for Balus creek area of Lanier as its about 30 minutes from me.

Creteus, glad you got some help! Kudo's to the one who helped you out. Positive karma is always a good thing....

This needs to be a sticky - come on MODS.

I'm available on Allatoona. Work from home so should be there most times.

Just out of curiosity, are you the guy in the pontoon boat who always drops all the pink noodle jugs out by the dam?

I'm 20 from Lanier. Definitely willing to help out. Our first summer on the lake, 3 years ago, we helped or towed about 3 or 4 non-fisherman. It's dangerous being out there stranded.

Glad to see so much support.

Truthfully, they ran him off. Rumor has it that during the summers there were lots of mad kids around highfalls. None of the stores had any little Debbie's left.
