    Default Camera found, looking for angler/owner

    http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/thunde...2016-1.4795182


    A pair of Minnesota based anglers who found a video camera last spring on Lake Superior's north shore would like to track down the owner.
    In May of this year, Shawn Perich and his pal Al Lutkevich, were fishing on the Old Woman River, when Lutkevich found a camera.
    Back at their cabin, they discovered the silt covered camera still worked.
    The memory card also had some video on it of someone fishing for trout in late October or early November of 2016.
    Perich says the angler had started from Sault Ste.Marie and was chronicling his fishing adventures on different rivers as he travelled west.
    "So what he was doing is he would use a tripod and just film himself fishing," Perich said. "So there were several videos like this. And I thought we should just try to get this camera back to this guy."

    In the videos, the angler is dressed in chest waders and has a long, graphite fishing rod and what is known as a centre pin reel.
    Perich said the specialty fishing equipment suggests a very keen steelhead angler, and someone who is likely known to other anglers.
    He said they tried contacting the camera manufacturer with the serial number to see if the angler had registered it, but have had no response.
    Without a name, neither of the men knew how to move forward with the search.
    "Then we were just scratching our heads, since we are from the western end of the lake, we didn't think any of our contacts would work to find the guy...."
    Perich said he approached CBC Thunder Bay outdoor columnist Gord Ellis with the story in hopes of spreading the word north of the border.
    He said he and his pal Lutkevich would like to return the video camera to the rightful owner.
    "I hope that someone recognizes him," said Perich. "Or has heard the story as obviously he must have told somebody about losing his camera when he got home."
    Anyone with information about this angler is asked to contact Shawn Perich at editor@northernwilds.com or Gord Ellis at gord.ellis@cbc.ca
