Angler’s body found in boat washed ashore on Mille Lacs Lake

ONAMIA (AP) — Officials are investigating after an angler was found dead in his boat on the shore of Mille Lacs Lake.

The Mille Lacs County sheriff’s office sayid 59-year-old Daniel Gable, of Hastings, was reported missing by his wife around 11 p.m. Friday. She told deputies he had gone fishing on the big lake in east-central Minnesota, but hadn’t checked in with family or friends, or checked out of his hotel.

Deputies found Gable’s truck and boat trailer parked at a landing on the west side of the lake near Onamia. A search by boat and by helicopter was hampered by fog and high waves. Searchers found his body Saturday morning inside his boat, where it had washed ashore near the landing.
