It'll be a fishing trip that two American men will never forget.

RCMP say on July 31st, the two men set out on Lake of the Woods to fish. 

Their boat started to take on water, and eventually capsized. 

The men drifted for four hours while laying on the capsized boat, eventually landing on an island on the Canadian side.

Police say they were stranded there for three days without food or water, until RCMP happened to see them while on patrol.

The men had not been reported missing.
