Fishing League Worldwide (FLW) regrets to confirm that a boat with two anglers that was competing today in the Costa FLW Series event on Lake Okeechobee did not check in at the designated weigh-in location at C. Scott Driver Park in Okeechobee, Florida, and has not yet been located.

The boat belonged to pro Bill Kisiah of Slidell, Louisiana, and co-angler Nik Kaylor of Apopka, Florida. The boat that the anglers were competing is a dark-colored Ranger Z521 with a red Evinrude G2 outboard. It is believed that the boaters had planned to travel to the South Bay area from the north end of the lake.

Kisiah is a nine-year veteran boater of FLW Series competition, while Kaylor had fished in 61 previous FLW events as a co-angler.

At this time, search and rescue operations are being conducted under the guidance of the Okeechobee Police Department, with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission and the U.S. Coast Guard assisting. Cell phone providers have been contacted and the search is continuing from the air. FLW is cooperating fully and assisting the investigation in every possible way.

FLW will release further information as soon as it becomes available. Updated information will also be posted on the FLW website, www.flwfishing.com.

It's a recovery mission now. I hate it for his family. There is a GoFundMe account set up for his family if you'd like to help.

I kept up with it right until they closed the group. I pray they at least can find him one way or the other. Sad deal for sure.

From what I just read, it looks like they have found the body of Nik Kayler this morning. Such a sad, sad situation. Be extremely careful out there you guys.
