That's really bad to hear of somone drowning while trying to enjoy life. As others have said and it can never be said enough, allways respect the body of water and the strength it has. Great sugg on the life vest if you are a not so good swimmer. Just double check that gear before hitting the water. I will be keeping this man and his family in my prayers. BRF did you get the mans name? Everyone be SAFE and great fishing!
