Sad ending. 5 men on a 14' boat. 3 deaths. No life jackets were found.

That is so sad. Why would they risk 5 people in a 14ft boat, and nighttime at that?

Probably cast netting for Tilapia, since they were by the discharge.

Hard to know for sure but I’ve seen these guys or others just like them out there many times. Small boat and on their way back to the ramp they are usually so loaded down with fish there’s about three inches of float on their boat. Fayette can get pretty rough pretty quick with the wrong wind. Very sad. Lesson to all.

the unpopular and truthful answer is they were careless and made a bad choice

Cast netting on Fayette needs to be banned, period. Five dudes at night in a tiny boat with no PFD's? Fayette is dangerous lake under ordinary circumstances, but at night in the wind, overloaded with weight? Damn near suicidal. Ban cast netting and save lives.
