Default Engine stuck in gear

fishing the Hudson River this morning...landed a nice striper. turned out to be a great day...decided to move on at slack tide, boat starts, go to put it in gear and it stalls. I start up in nuetral, go to gear, stalls. now its stuck in gear and I cant get it to nuetral. its a 50hp Evinrude outboard sitting on a Sea Nymphy 17' GLS. any body have any suggestions?

To get it back in neutral, have you tried spinning the prop a little by hand while trying to shift it?
