2 people died today on Rayburn about 1pm right in front of the Twin Dikes boat ramp by the little island---they were in a jon boat that overturned -other shorebound anglers spotted them trying to get back on their boat but the wind blew their boat away from them- by the time a rescue was initiated in about 20 minutes it was too late- both anglers sunk out of site- they found one body so far- they are still looking for the 2nd- they were NOT wearing their lifevests--- twin dikes boat ramp is shut down for now with emergency vehicles-
My prayers go out to the family and friends. Tragic. Shame to hear about any stoey like this. No Vests is the number one Culprit on the water, same as a seatbelt in a car. Gotta wear em. they save lives even though they can be very uncomfortable
I was on the lake at the time practicing for the BASS Series, me and other boats helped the rest of the evening, with draglines, graphs, and even crankbaits. Was a very sad (odd) situation to be in! 1 was found. My prayers were sent ever since.
