TOWNSHIP 16, RANGE 6, Maine—Wardens have recovered the body of a 57-year-old man who didn't make it to shore after his boat capsized on a small northern Maine lake.

The Maine Warden Service says the body of Ronald Toussaint of Eagle Lake was recovered shortly before 10 a.m. Tuesday in 14 feet of water in Blake Lake, located in Township 16, Range 6 east of Eagle Lake in northern Aroostook County.

Officials say Toussaint and 37-year-old Jason Dube of Eagle Lake were fishing on a 12-foot boat when it capsized early Monday night. Dube made it to safety, but Toussaint didn't make it to shore.

The warden service says the men had life jackets in their boat but weren't wearing them.
