A terrible set of combined circumstances contributed to this accident.

Tragic, and a awful way for us all to get a reminder about the danger of big cold water. In water below 60 degrees you've got about 6 hours max. Unconsciousness could come in as little as 2 hours. Below 50, 3 hours survival, 60 minutes to unconsciousness.

I'm actually surprised this kind of thing doesn't happen more often on our lakes in our tournaments especially ones on Rayburn, Ray Bob. Toledo and some others that can get very dangerous in a hurry. Especially with all of the "tough guys" on here that always say oh 25-30 mph are no big deal.

In cold water (below 60 degrees) with clothes on and in a life jacket you'd be lucky to move 1 mile in an hour. So get offshore more than 2 or so miles and you could be in real trouble if you go in the drink and can't get out.

4-6 ft waves in 6-10 ft of water makes a big difference. When you get to the bottom of one of those waves, you are on the bottom of the lake.

How long did it take to recover the body? I guess I missed that and how far away was it recovered from the site?

He went in the water on January 4 and was recovered in the area of the Clewiston water tower on January 10. I don't know how far that is, but I know it's a long way from where Kayler was ejected.

Surprised they were even looking at a possibility of criminal charges, but glad none were filed.

No telling what kind of civil suits will come out of this. I will say that it seems since this incident that tournament directors are being much more cautious on the conditions they allow anglers to fish in

6 days, even with a life jacket on, hard to believe. After this I started stitching reflective tape onto my life jackets, unknown if this will help?

It sure as heck won't hurt, Mike.

I don't believe this is going to be the end of the sad situation. The real question is 'would he still be alive had he been riding in a dual console?'
