CAROLINA BEACH - Lowell Mason was out fishing on April 5. He was returning home passing through the Carolina Beach Inlet at the northern end of Pleasure Island. Strong winds churned up waves that caused the 16' Alumacraft Jon Boat to capsize. Mason said he was fine, but he lost all of his fishing gear and tackle. Before he knew it, the boat had drifted away. He's asking the public to help him locate the boat. The registration number is NC-1886DM and is equipped with a 25hp Mercury motor. Mason said the last Coast Guard report said it was upside down near marker 156 in the Intracoastal Waterway. If anyway spots the boat, Mason would love to hear from them at 910-392-2267.
