Prayers for the family. I'm glad they found him. I know it is a relief for them to at least have that.

Its sad,need to be better prepapred for what could come up on the lake. I carry extra bilge pumps even when i had my 20ft bass boat. April 1,2000 i was fishing a jon boat tournament on lake varner , high winds 30+ and i capsized and nearly drowned,after that i have an extra bilge pump and a 1 gallon jug,hopefully it will never happen again

I read the families GoFundMe page that had a description of the events leading up to how it all took place. Seems like there were a lot of opportunities to avoid this tragedy. I get that its not the DNR's job to assist boaters and what not but if these guys were dead in the water and a significant weather pattern with high winds was emerging would it have been too much trouble to lend these guys a hand? Also not wearing a life jacket....This just should not have happened.

after looking, I cant see where its stated that its DNR's job to do so. I'm still looking though.
I think its a humanity issue. when somebody is in
trouble, you help them. that's plain and simple.

Very sad.
My family had a family reunion at the pavilion there last October.
Prayers for this family!
It was a very windy day when we were there. I remember thinking I'd hate to be out in a jon boat. It was white capping that day.
