Ok guys , here is the story.......We were in search of the big fish yesturday morning and we got to the boat ramp on the trinity river, put the boat in and went off to kill a GG, the river was coming up , LITTLE DID WE KNOW we were in for the ride of our life...Bout 4 o'clock we ran into a couple guys I knew from OK and they asked if that was MY truck on the Island ? I said HUH, without carring on with them we hauled ass back to the truck and found my truck on a SMALL hill getting smaller by the second, the water came up 5-6 foot in 7 hours and rushing like you would not belive.. We were in a boat so we were safe to get to the bank, but my truck was 300 yards from being safe, and nobody could think of anything to do..We put my boat TRAILER on my BOAT and got it across to safety plus I had a way to get the boat home, then we put my truck on a lil-hill on the highest point to TRY to keep it dry..I am sick as hell cause I have been ****ED by insurance com before..My truck today is 1 inch from coming into the cab, but my buddy has a big hull and were fixen to try some chit to get it out....Pray for us , its about to get real.....Somebody can get my pics from FB and put them on here...Im sick as hell bout the whole deal, ifanybody wants to see some crap or wants to help, holla at me in da morning...

Tough luck, Hoopty. The same thing happened about two years ago to some fellows on Buffalo Creek Lake. When they returned from the morning's activities, all that could be seen of the truck was about the top 3 inches of the cab. The water continued to rise, and the truck is still there today under 10 feet of water.

At least on the Trinity, the rising water will flood some of the low areas and help the alligator gar spawn this spring.

Hard to believe it was six years ago. I remember driving home from work a lot that day to check my computer to see if they got the Truck out. Seen Brady and friends with the fish in back of truck and I lost it with laughter. Those were the days.
