The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

So my finals are over but im stuck in rolla till friday. Today i kept my self busy with a couple rounds and then some fishing for discs. I went into the pond with some crappy shoes and an old hockey stick. I found 4 discs 2 of which were friends discs and 2 unmarked discs a 150 avenger and a dx valk.
I was wondering if anyone else has done this and have found any good techniques. OR just if anyone has some good stories of saving discs from davey jones' locker

Much to the amazement of family and friends I used to go in all the time at Vista del Camino. When I was younger I'd stay in for a while digging up all kinds of discs, I'd stay in til chased out sometimes. I remember once politely telling an officer "hey I've got $8 dollars in here" he replied something to the effect of oh well. I still go in now but I just want to get in and out with my disc. No extra looking now. Funny recent story; One day I yanked a Surge 150 into the local pond. My son(25) wouldn't let me go in and he went in for me. I told him where I thought it was and he around barely touching the area. Any way he didn't find my disc and we headed home. A week or two later were out playing again(I figure that disc is gone, found by someone and I may or may not get it back) and we're playing that hole again(first time since the loss) and I decide to play it real safe with the wind blowing into the pond. I throw my last Surge 150 real wide.hoping it will turn over follow the hill to the hole not even flirting with the water. Well it did turnover but more than I expect and it ends up in the water, but it's floating. I go into to try and get it but it keeps floating away from me. Just as I decide that I'm just going let it float hoping it will get near shore, I look down and find my first Surge. Yes and it was basically where I thought it was to begin with. We thought it was pretty funny and yes after the round I was able to get Surge number 2 back. Luckily it's a pretty small pond.

nice!! when you used to look around for a bit what did you use to look for discs?

yeah, just take the sox off and use a dragging motion with yer toes
This sounds similar to my father and me. I visit him in Georgia a couple of times a year and we inevitably end up searching one of the many water hazards for discs. The first time we ended up with 40+ discs and a "talking to" from the park ranger about alligators and brown water snakes.
you two are completely irresponsible,lol. Mom put a stop to that after the guy got his arm bitten off up here.
I have spent many an hour squishing around in a pond. 6 inches of water+ 12 inches of Muck= Good times. I have also spent many a rainy day throwing my disc diver around in a nasty brown creek. Both have had great success. Between finding some really cool peoples discs. After calling them and hooking up for a round. And several really good donations into my collection. Plus the only thing I ever charge from people is a pepsi or bottle of water from the gas station on the way to a course. Nah, I have them grab me one and give them a buck. I believe in Karma.
I believe in Karma. Just this last week a guy I play with found three discs and I found two at a new course where there is a killer spot for loosing disc. My broke rear-end went in after my disc to find the two in the process. Four out of the five had names and numbers on them. I called my two. One guy had lost his disc awhile ago and said he moved out of state and I could keep it. The second disc owner I am meeting up with Thursday to play around.

I shared that I called on my discs to the guy I was playing with. He had not called and from what I could tell he will never call. Jerk right? So He wanted to play this weekend and brought out those discs to play with. Here comes hole three and he looses the one without a name on it. He is all upset and starts pouting for at least three more holes.

We get to hole 16 now and he steps up and looses another one of his found discs. I helped him search high and low to no avail. He then turns to me and says “I am done you can finish the round if you like but I will walk it from here.” So I turned around to get back to my lie and a see a lost disc stuck in a tree with no name on it. I then proceeded to play out the round taking extra shots to practice along the way.

So moral of the story is if you do right by the person who took the time to write their name on the disc fortune will smile upon you!
Yeah that's my point after I asked the question I went back to call on that disc I found and was not gonna call. If your trying to call me out on something I am sorry but you need to read the whole forum. The guys disc that was out in the open he lost some were else and had graduated. He lives out of state and said to keep it! I text-ed one of the other guys now we are going to play around on Thursday! I am going to call on every disc I find with a number!!!
ya this pond is pretty nasty i wore some shoes. probly could have found more with out tho.
at memorial park me and my friend the krumm went in for the first time 2 years ago and we found 35 discs 24 which i found and the others were my friends... and we have been gooning since
