MASON COUNTY (AP) – The bodies of a West Michigan man and the owner of the boat he was fishing aboard have been recovered in Lake Michigan.

Fifty-eight-year-old Ray Finholm of Ludington and 67-year-old Bill Sorokin of Pennsylvania went missing while salmon fishing Thursday off Big Point Sable. U.S. Coast Guard personnel pulled Sorokin’s body from the lake Thursday evening. Finholm’s body was found Friday morning near a Mason County beach.

Investigators believe Sorokin’s boat sank in rough waves and wind.
