Small world I'm on Rayburn. Live 1/4 mile from Farmers cove . We always wear our life jackets . 16' alumacraft flat bottom. Lake can get really ruff .I was a fishing guide for six years on Sam Rayburn lake in east Texas. Our boats were small, 16’ mostly, 17’ the last two years. 118,000 acre lake and could get mighty rough. At the time state law required 12 & under kids to wear life vest always when under way. I strictly enforced it.
Pulled two bodies from that lake and one from another during those years. None of the three were wearing life jackets.
