Sixty-seven-year-old Grant Hoffman of Napa, California, apparently drowned while trying to retrieve a stray boat on Tuesday. Ontario Provincial Police say the boat had drifted away after Hoffman and his fishing partner stopped for a shore lunch in the Monument Bay area.

Monument Bay is just north of Minnesota's Northwest Angle on the western side of Lake of the Woods.

The OPP's Underwater Search and Recovery Unit recovered Hoffman's body on Wednesday. A post-mortem examination was scheduled for Thursday.
