I went to LOP earlier today to catch some bait and while driving over the dam I saw a capsized boat in the water near the rip rap. I went to the boat ramp and Seth Vanover (G3bassbarge) had just trailered his boat. I told him what I saw and backed his trailer back into the water. He found one boater still alive and there was one still unaccounted for when I left the lake about an hour ago. The life jacket of the missing person was found on the bank near the capsized boat. Sad deal. WEAR YOUR LIFE JACKET AT ALL TIMES!

Damn! I hate these incidents! Way to many accidents this last year! I wear my vest religiously! Good job for staying to assist!


Never let truth stand in the way of a good fish story!

That is going to be my theme this year, simply put- Wear it or Chances are you will die without it. While we all may be good swimmers, an accident can knock you out & when you come to, if you do, may be too late.

When I fell out of my sister's Porta-Bote, I had mine on, a spare in the boat & two seat life cushions. And how I fell, was out one side backwards. My legs were still in the boat, but I was caught offguard & I bobbed back up fast due to my lifejacket being on. Had I not had it on, it would have been harder to unlock my legs out & off the boat.

I forget to add, being half asleep, or half awake, to say Thanks for getting involved. I can assume the water is quite chilling and the one recovered probably was thankful somebody stopped & sent help. Sad though, that one may not have made it. Anybody have an update on this tragedy?
