70-year-old Jimmy Williams was fishing at Paradise Island Fish Camp when his boat tipped over.
A close friend had dropped Williams off at the camp around 7 o'clock in the morning. It wasn't until 9:00 AM that a neighbor noticed the cap-sized vessel and called for help.
Williams' body was discovered around 2 o'clock PM, in approximately 10 feet of water.
While Williams was an ardent fisherman, authorities say he did not know how to swim.
