GRAND HAVEN, Mich. (AP) — Andre Monterio has a fishing story about one that got away and eventually was caught.

But what he pulled from Lake Michigan near Grand Haven in September had no scales or gills. It was a small digital camera knocked overboard two years ago from another boat.

WZZM-TV reports (http://on.wzzm.com/1GPdMOK ) that Monterio put the camera's memory card in his computer and saw "Mike's Family Pharmacy" in one photo. He contacted pharmacist Mike Cook at the shop in Montague, northwest of Grand Rapids.

Cook was on the boat when the camera was lost. He relayed the story to Deb Hays of Whitehall. The camera belonged to her husband.

Hays told the television station that "when something falls in a great lake, your chance of getting it back is slim to none."
