I just got home, and while on my way home I was driving across the 2 mile bridge on Lake Tawakoni. For those of you that know the lake, when the wind blows it gets really rough. I noticed a bass boat on the south side of the bridge just getting after it, if it porpoised any more it would have flipped over backwards. The waves were about 4 feet tall. All of a sudden the bow just submarined through a wave. I drove over to the boat ramp on the west side of the bridge. When I got there I could see the guys in the boat scrambling around putting on life jackets and such. The boat was really low in the water, so the waves just kept rolling over it. I guess the big motor died because I saw one of the guys dropping the trolling motor. A fire truck pulled on the bridge about 5 minutes later. I guess the owner of the boat went back and got the big motor started. They limped over to the boat ramp, luckily it was out of the wind. When they got therethe firemen and I met them at the ramp, the owner of the boat was cussing"Ill never buy another *&^%^& Cajun again. I got to noticing, the boat was only a 16 footer. There were 3 grown men in it, and enough gear and such to account for the weight of 2 more men. The tag in the boat read 4 people and I dont remember the weight capacity. I was thinking to myself "idiot, it aint the boats fault". Needless to say the guys were all right, but this could have turned out much worse. I am not trying to preach, but no fish is worth dying for. Use common sense and follow the guidelines on your boat for capacity and such. And use your head when it comes to the weather, if it aint safe dont go. By the way, the bilge pump was still running when I left 20 minutes later. Just my 2 cents.
